Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has revealed that Warriors' win over Houston Rockets in Game 6 of the 2019 Western Conference Semifinals is his favorite game from the past 5 years.
“If I look back at these last five years — if I had to say what was my favorite game — it would be Game 6 in Houston last year," Kerr told Bill Simmons on the Book of Basketball 2.0 podcast, via Drew Shiller of NBC Sports Bay Area.
“We had a possession late in the game that sealed it basically. Remember, Steph and Draymond were running that side pick-and-roll over and over again and Steph was going nuts.
“The final dagger was — Houston had adjusted, they double teamed Steph, he hits Draymond in the pocket, they come over to rotate to Draymond, he hits Andre (Iguodala) along the baseline and Andre kicks it back to Klay for a 3-pointer.
“That play to me defines what our team has been about for the last five years. The ball movement, the spacing, the beautiful vision and awareness of Andre and Draymond, and the lethal play of Steph and Klay.”
After celebrating a victory over Rockets, Warriors qualified for the NBA finals, where they lost the title to Portland Trail Blazers.
