Warriors head coach Steve Kerr and his top player Stephen Curry were stunned as they went down before Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals in Golden State and Dallas because of a tragic shooting in Texas. Steve Kerr’s pregame press conference had nothing to do with basketball ahead of Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals between the Warriors and Mavericks on Tuesday because he couldn’t contain his emotions after such a traumatizing turn of events in Uvalde, Texas . Warriors talisman Stephen Curry backed his coach’s comments and offered to take up the challenge to improve things.
In Game 4, a sense of despair spread throughout the stadium as everyone mourned the deaths of 19 children and two teachers in a traumatic shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Doncic had 30 points and 14 rebounds, and the Mavericks defeated Golden State 119-109 in Game 4 Tuesday night when there was a 16-minute rain delay early in the second half and the Warriors narrowed a 29-point deficit too late in the single digit range.
It was a performance to forget for the Warriors, although their excitement in the fourth quarter makes some of the overall stats look decent. Stephen Curry had a team-high 20 points but was off the radar tonight, shooting just 7 of 16 from the field. Jonathan Kuminga was a bright spot in the loss with 17 points and 8 rebounds.

“I can’t even imagine the pain” – Stephen Curry
Kerr, who has consistently spoken out about gun violence in America and has campaigned for gun control, visibly trembled and was at times on the verge of tears during his address to the media on Tuesday. During the pre-game conference ahead of Game 4 in Dallas, Kerr slammed the senators and condemned various crimes that have chilled people around the world to their core.
“I won’t talk about basketball. Nothing has happened to our team in the last six hours. We’re going to start the same way tonight. Any basketball questions don’t matter. ‘ Kerr began in a shaky voice.
“Since we left the shooting, 14 kids have been killed 400 miles from here. And a teacher. In the last 10 days we’ve been killing elderly black people in a supermarket in Buffalo, we’ve been killing Asian churchgoers in Southern California. Now we have children who were murdered at school.Visibly in emotional distress, Steve made his voice heard amid the chaos that engulfed everyone’s heart.
The death toll has since risen to at least 19 children and two adults, according to a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety. The 18-year-old suspect, a Uvalde High School student who entered the elementary school with a handgun and possibly a rifle, is also dead, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said. Backing his coach’s words, Stephen Curry showed no mercy to the Senators and the disastrous laws in force in America regarding gun and ammunition ownership.
“I appreciate his leadership. Everyone was talking about getting into the game. It’s just hard to stay focused and play basketball and know what happened in that state. I have children, send them to school every day, drop them off and you empathize with the parents who are going through what they are going throughH”
“I can’t even imagine the pain, so the coach came here and said what he said and every word had meaning. I accept the challenge of trying to find a way to reinstate my voice and my platform to help. Hopefully change them and you can tell what it meant to him.“
“Of course your mind wanders from time to time but especially the moment of silence before the game and all that so it’s hard but it reminds you how blessed we are that we can do what we do and what we do you can’t get lost in a basketball game for two and a half hours, you know, even though it’s difficult to know what’s going on in our countrySteph spoke with all sincerity when mentioning how difficult it was to play in Game 4 after the horrific events in Texas.
The Golden State Warriors went into Game 4 with a solid 3-0 lead and had a chance to pick up a win. This morning, however, an incident at a Texas elementary school shocked the entire nation. There was a moment of silence before the game to remember the innocent lives lost to this vicious act.
The Dallas Mavericks had a brilliant game but aren’t going home just yet. They were eliminated at home in Game 4 and picked up their first win in the Western Conference Finals when they defeated the Golden State Warriors 119-109 on Tuesday night. The series, now 3-1 in favor of the Warriors, will return to the Bay Area for Game 5 Thursday night.
