Perk calls out Kerr after Warriors' blowout loss vs. Raptors

With Steph Curry and Draymond Green in street clothes Friday, the Warriors put up zero fight in a "humiliating" blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors.

Klay Thompson was "fired up" after the 130-77 drubbing, and got into his teammates in the locker room.

Back in the Twittersphere, Kendrick Perkins called out Steve Kerr for the Warriors' inability to play anything resembling winning basketball when Curry doesn't play.

Perkins' critique of Kerr is fair. While a loss would have been understandable, getting embarrassed like that is unacceptable on every level.

With the loss in Tampa Bay to the Raptors, the Warriors fell to 1-7 on the season when Curry is on the bench.

Golden State now sits at 23-26 and in 10th place in the Western Conference. The Warriors are one game ahead of the hard-charging Kings and one-and-a-half games ahead of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Kerr believes the Warriors still have time to go on a run, but they'll need Curry and Green to be on the court for that to happen. With only 23 games remaining in the season, the Warriors' first season after their gap year looks like it will end either in a play-in tournament defeat or a berth in the NBA Draft Lottery.

One thing is certain: The Warriors' season is spiraling out of control, and Kerr hasn't been able to push the right buttons to get it turned around.
