Steve Kerr has appeared more irked at times this season than at any other point since taking the reins of the Golden State Warriors in 2014, and Thursday was more of the same after a listless 126-106 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

All-Star forward Kevin Durant was mired in a tough shooting night, only 8-of-23 from the floor and a woeful 2-of-10 from deep, but disagreed with his coach's notion that this team didn't seem to care about the result at hand.

The Pacers took an 18-11 lead in the first quarter and started pulling away after Lance Stephenson erased a 30-28 deficit with a 3-pointer with 9:46 left in the second quarter.

In addition to playing without Stephen Curry (MCL sprain), the Warriors were missing Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness).

"They played better basketball than us", Durant added.

"I think people are starting to take notice, but we still ain't got nobody's respect yet", said Turner. Despite their efforts, the Warriors were never close to the Pacers after the second half, with the Eastern Conference side now boasting six wins in seven games against them this regular season. "They came out with a better strategy". "We cared. Over the last few games, we cared". Golden State shot just 31 percent from three-point range while allowing the Pacers to shoot 53.8 percent from the field and make 15 threes.

When asked if he was mad, the 2016 NBA Coach of the Year said, "Yeah, I'm mad". I'm embarrassed. I know this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding, but the playoffs start next week. "We defended at a high level and any time we do that, we will be successful", Oladipo said. It was an embarrassing effort.

Golden State cut the deficit in half by scoring the first 10 points of the fourth quarter before in answered with 17-1 run to regain control.

Kevin Durant scored 34 points while being booed throughout the game, leading Golden State to a 111-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. A spot shooter for most of the season, Bogdanovic has been more committed to driving the lane and using the baseline to score.

"He will be re-evaluated in four (4) weeks and, at this point, his playing status for the remainder of the season/playoffs has not been determined".

"I think first of all we did a great job defensively", Bogdanovic said.
