Kerr says Warriors want to run more pick-and-roll consistently

It's safe to assume the Warriors will be calling for more high ball screens moving forward.

How do we know that?

Because Steve Kerr was crystal clear Thursday afternoon.

"I definitely want to run more pick-and-roll, and we are doing more of it," Golden State's coach on 95.7 The Game's "Damon, Ratto & Kolsky" show. "We don't exactly have the perfect blend of players to run a million pick-and-rolls to be frank.

"We love having Draymond Green handling the ball quite a bit because he's really good as a point-forward. And Steph [Curry] is great moving off the ball and that generates a lot of offense for us. And we're not a team with a high-volume of 3-point shooters.

"So you have to factor all that stuff in. In my mind, it's finding the right balance. I do believe that more pick-and-roll -- it hasn't been consistent over the last couple weeks, but over several games it's been very helpful.

"And we're trying to get to more of that."

Certain matchups also dictate the game plan and impact offensive strategy. The Warriors last Monday ramped up the number of pick-and-rolls in an effort to attack Nikola Vucevic and Lauri Markkanen. It worked.

The same thing happened Tuesday night against Brook Lopez, Bobby Portis and the Milwaukee Bucks.

This topic -- especially if the Warriors lose -- surely will be brought up again over the final 21 games.
