Warriors’ Kerr favors shorter season to fix NBA “rest” issue

CLEVELAND (AP) — The defending NBA champions are ending a five-game trip with their best players on the bench.  Following an overtime loss in Boston on Thursday, the Golden State Warriors sat superstar Steph Curry along with starters Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins for Friday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Curry played 43 minutes and scored 29 points in the Warriors’ 121-118 loss to the Celtics in a rematch of last season’s NBA Finals. Warriors coach empathizes with fans who didn’t get to see a favirite player. His solution is a 72-game season, which would allow players to get more rest and potentially improve the quality of play.
