Steve Kerr on how to stop teams from resting stars: Cut back to 72-game schedule

Mark Haynes: Steve Kerr on stopping teams from resting their stars: “To me what makes the most sense is cutting back to maybe a 72 game schedule. Take 10 games off, and get more time to rest in between games. I think you’ll get teams to play their guys more often.”

Steve Kerr on Spurs’ fighting back in 3Q, courtesy of @Abrjsdad: “I thought it was more them than us. San Antonio, they have an identity. They are obviously so well-coached. No matter who they play, they are connected. They stay together. They compete.” – 12:15 AM

Kerr on Pop: “If he decides to keep going, I think it would be great. I think he is so good at it. He is going to have to make that decision. But it is special each time we play these guys because of the bond that grew even stronger (between us) in Tokyo last summer.” – 7:18 PM
