The Warriors turned a 16-point halftime deficit into a 16-point win over the Nets last night.

What changed?

Golden State coach Steve Kerr:

Just our overall attention span was bad. The millennials struggled in the first half, but they locked in in the second half. They put their phones down and started to defend.

Kerr has gone to this well before, and it’s still funny.

Why make this joke now? I don’t know, but I’d like to think it’s a subtle shot at out-of-touch former coaches.
