“That’s on me”- Steve Kerr takes the blame for Steph Curry calling a timeout in Game 4

The Golden State Warriors tied their series against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. The Warriors beat the Kings in a nail-biting 126-125 finish. With just a little over 40 seconds remaining, Steph was called for a technical foul for attempting to call a timeout.

The Golden State Warriors were already out of timeouts in the final minute of the game. As Steph Curry brought the ball down, he was double-teamed and naturally wanted to call for a timeout to avoid a disastrous situation.

However, due to Steve Kerr’s failure to mention to his team that they were out of timeouts, the star player was called for a technical foul, allowing the Kings to close the gap with a couple of free throws. Kerr explained the situation during the postgame press conference and took the blame for nearly flipping their winning situation.

“One hundred percent my fault,” Kerr said. “I knew we didn’t have any timeouts left. We took the challenge and when the challenge was unsuccessful as we were exiting the huddle, that’s on me. I got to remind the guys we’re out of timeouts. I didn’t say that and so Steph wasn’t aware. So that’s on me for not making that clear.”
