Kerr: Nick Young vs Pat McCaw 'hasn't crystalized at all for me'

Programming note: Warriors-Mavs coverage starts today at 4:30pm with Warriors Pregame Live on NBC Sports Bay Area.

In the Warriors' win over the Pelicans on Friday night, Pat McCaw did not get any playing time.

Nick Young was on the floor for 11 minutes.

"The way I look at Nick and Patrick -- I don't think either one has won the job, backup two," Kerr said after the game. "So I may play Pat tomorrow, I don't know. We'll figure it out.

"They're both gonna play, and there are gonna be nights where one of 'em may not get in."

On Saturday night against the Grizzlies, Young was -3 in five minutes and missed both of his 3-point attempts.

McCaw recorded two assists and a steal but he was -9 in 12 minutes.

Following shootaround on Monday in Dallas, Kerr said the following:

Sounds like this is going to be a point of discussion for the foreseeable future...

After the Warriors lost to the Grizzlies on Saturday night in Memphis, they flew to Dallas.

And on Sunday in the Lone Star State, Steph Curry enjoyed some free time on the golf course:

This is not the first time Curry has enjoyed a round of golf with Obama, as the two hit the links back in August 2015.

"My third time actually, so it's old news," Curry joked after shootaround on Monday. "We're always teammates. We're 2-1 now. Much better record than the Warriors."

What was Obama like?

"Same personality, same kind of charisma and vibe around him," Curry said. "Just maybe two or three less secret service members."

Curry and the Warriors face the Mavs on Monday night.

Seth Curry unfortunately will not suit up because of a left leg injury.

Curry claims he didn't throw mouthguard at ref: 'I've got a pretty good aim'

Curry claims he didn't throw mouthguard at ref: 'I've got a pretty good aim'

Just before the Warriors officially lost the game in Memphis on Saturday night, their superstar point guard lost his cool.

After not getting a foul call with 43 seconds left in the game, Steph Curry chucked his mouthguard in the direction of referee Scott Wall in a fit of rage reminiscent of Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

Wall immediately ejected Curry, who continued to argue with the officials.

After the game, Curry wanted to make it clear he wasn't trying to his Wall with his mouthguard.

"If I tried to throw it at him and hit him, I've got a pretty good aim," Curry said told reporters after the game. "I've thrown my mouthpiece plenty of times and thrown it on the floor. Probably not the best thing to do, but I've done it. I own up to it.

"If I was trying to throw it at him or hit him, I would have been able to executed that."

Curry explained why he reacted the way he did.

"That last play, I thought I got fouled. My frustration boiled over, did something stupid, deserved to get kicked out and that's what happened. Obviously learn from it and try not to do it again," Curry told reporters.

Now Curry and the Warriors wait to see if the NBA will suspend or fine him. He has an expectation of what the punishment will be.

"Don't think it will be a suspension or anything. My pockets will be a lot lighter," Curry said after the game.
