Andre Iguodala, David West, Draymond Green get coaching nods in rout

But one of the single best things you can do to empower others is to give them the chance to lead-whether it's a team, a project, or a presentation.

This will certainly be a noticeable blow to the Warriors, regardless of who they are playing, considering Green is easily one of the best (if not the best) defenders in the entire National Basketball Association. Kerr's strategy appeared to work, as the Warriors put away the lowly Suns easily, winning by a score of 129-83.

And while the Warriors (44-13) looked like the team of old on the court, it was something new on the sideline that demanded all the attention.

This story has been updated with quotes and post-game material from the Warriors' locker room at Oracle Arena. From Stephen Curry to Draymond Green to Andre Iguodala to David West, the players took turns running the huddles.

"It shows a lack of respect for an opponent, and maybe right now we don't deserve respect", Dudley told ESPN's Chris Haynes.

"I wouldn't do that", Lue said "They already say LeBron's coaching the team anyway". As coaches, our job is job is to nudge them in the right direction, guide them. TJ Warren dropped a team-high thirty-one points in their last game.

"I was disgusting, actually", he said. It's emotionally draining for these guys to play night after night, people coming after them. "We were just trying to stay locked in and enjoy the process of getting focused and knowing our sets, being thoughtful about what lineups are out there, what we're trying to accomplish and execute". For example, he's identified leadership qualities in Green, whom he used to coach for most of the game.

Durant has now attempted 9 field goals in back-to-back games, after taking double-digit shot attempts in each of the first 47 games to start the year. "I haven't been able to reach them the last month". They're exhausted of my voice. Thompson's efficiency eclipses even that, as he has connected on 46.9% of his 145 career 3-point attempts against the Suns.

Casspi scored 19 points and had 10 rebounds in the win.

"I put a big effort into shooting more threes and focusing on spacing the court", he said following Monday's win. "So I'm doing what I have to do to make sure my body is mentally in a good space".

If he can continue to be a threat from the outside, the Warriors will be a much better team. Green sat out for the contest because of a sprained left index finger, but was eager to tell his teammates a new strategy during another timeout. Most importantly, the Warriors came away with the win.
