Stephen Curry on Steve Kerr’s pregame plea for gun control: “I appreciate his leadership. It was on everybody’s mind coming into the game. … I’ve got kids. Send them to school every day, drop them off.” – 12:15 AM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr: “Tough day for everybody. That sounds like an inappropriate thing to say. Tough day for everybody. It’s too much to fathom. Too much to comprehend. … We move on, and we hope that someone actually decides to value our citizens’ lives more than they value money.” – 11:55 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Steve Kerr: “We weren’t alert tonight, defensively. We weren’t sharp. We let them into a groove and once a team like that gets into a 3-point groove, it’s tough to get them out.” – 11:52 PM

Steve Kerr on why he put his starters back in late: “We wanted to see if we could pull off a miracle, but it wasn’t meant to be.” – 11:48 PM
Rick Noland @RickNoland
There’s a reason I like Steve Kerr. Doesn’t have a lot to do with hoops – 11:45 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
It’s just one game, so it won’t get blown out of proportion, but Steve Kerr should have left the Warriors’ second unit on the floor. Especially up 3-0 going home, you reward that group with an opportunity to close that game out. – 11:34 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
The Mavs once led by 29. The Bench Warriors had cut it down to just eight. 3:22 to go. The question is… does Steve Kerr ride it out with his second unit? Or does he bring the starters back? – 11:27 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Mavericks lead is down to eight with 3:22 left. Interesting decision for Steve Kerr coming. This second unit is riding a confidence high. Sliced the lead from 29 to eight. But this is now in gettable range for Curry/starters. Looks like Kerr is staying with bench unit. – 11:27 PM
Jimmy Spencer @JimmySpencer
#HR8 was the bill Steve Kerr spoke to and calls for a background check. It has bipartisan support. We must ask then why GOP senators won’t vote on it if their constituents want it?
Call your senators right now. Mention them in this tweet. Vote on #HR8.
Also: call 202-224-3121 – 11:25 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Steve Kerr pulled all starters except for Steph Curry. Feels like an odd call. – 10:58 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
I’d expect Steve Kerr to wave the proverbial white flag soon. He tends to not like to chase wins in these situations. – 10:51 PM
Ryan McDonald @ryanwmcdonald
Steve Kerr and Jason Kidd spoke on the Texas school shooting. Here’s what they said https://t.co/7IwBv3dU0W pic.twitter.com/d5k9mZJu0W10:48 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Mavericks up 22, early third quarter. Too early at this point, but wonder when Steve Kerr might be willing to pull the plug. He instructed his coaching staff not to chase Game 5 in Memphis. They pulled the starters mid third quarter. – 10:40 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk
NBA world — led by a passionate Steve Kerr — reacts to tragic elementary school shooting in Uvalde nba.nbcsports.com/2022/05/24/nba…10:18 PM

An emotional Steve Kerr rips politicians after Texas school shooting. Preventable tragedies hit hard every time. Harder still when your neighbor is a survivor nbcsports.com/bayarea/warrio…10:04 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors put Kuminga and Moody on the floor together for the first time in a meaningful situation in these playoffs. Some nice early moments, including a Kuminga to Moody assist. But defense is breaking down a bit. Dallas up six. Steve Kerr timeout. – 9:42 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Steve Kerr going with the young bulls tonight. I love it. Moody, Kuminga, Poole, rocki out! – 9:39 PM
Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin
It’s important to know that Steve Kerr was personally impacted by gun violence. He lost his father when two gunmen assassinated him in Beirut. So, this is a man speaking from the profound pain of personal experience when he says enough is enough. – 9:17 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Basketball takes a back seat to reality, and it ticks off Steve Kerr. He calls lack of action on gun control “pathetic” as he and Jason Kidd react to Uvalde mass shooting at elementary school.

More Steve Kerr: “There’s 50 senators right now who refuse to vote on H.R.8, which is a background check rule that the House passed a couple of years. It’s been sitting there from two years. And there’s a reason they won’t vote on it. To hold onto power.” – 7:45 PM

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
The Warriors are in their 23rd playoff series under Steve Kerr. The Dubs are one win away from taking their Kerr-era record to 21-2.
