Warriors at Heat: If Steve Kerr can enjoy this, why can’t we?

The Warriors will face the Heat today in a Black Friday game. Before the game, Steve Kerr tried to put the season in perspective.

The Golden State Warriors will face the Miami Heat today in search of their first consecutive wins of the season.

Of course, with today’s game in Miami against a 12-5 Heat team, it’s pretty unlikely that we’ll be seeing a win tonight. So, win or lose, what we’ll continue to look for tonight is growth from all these young players — if they get a win, as they did last time out, that’s a bonus.

That ability to compete in as many games as they have despite being overmatched more often than not — one could argue that Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls was the first one in a while that was predictably winnable — is what makes this team more endearing than their record suggests they should be.

For all the ups and downs, the heart and promise that these young guys have shown is part of what helps coach Steve Kerr derive some enjoyment from this season, as reported by Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Would it be nice to get another win tonight? Perhaps ... but continuing to focus on the team’s growth individually and as a unit is probably the best way to go if you want to find these games remotely enjoyable.

Feel free to drop your thoughts on tonight’s game or this season as a whole in the comments below.
