Steve Kerr: Warriors will get better with Steph Curry out 'because we have to'

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Stephen Curry’s injury is “a good thing for our team” in a certain way. Curry is out two weeks with an ankle sprain.

“I think big picture-wise over the next couple weeks it’s an opportunity for our team to get better because we have to,” Kerr told reporters Wednesday, via The Associated Press. “We have no choice.”

The Warriors have found ways to win without Curry in the past, or even with Curry not being 100 percent, but they have not had to do so with the collection of players they have on board right now.

Fortunately for Golden State, one of the new players is Kevin Durant, who is in the discussion as the best player in the world. With Curry out of Wednesday night’s matchup against the Hornets, Durant had a triple-double with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

Klay Thompson was also very good, scoring 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting in Golden State’s 101-87 win over Charlotte.
