Mark Jackson Wants Steph Curry to Commit Less Turnovers

Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry coughed up the rock an average of 3.1 times per game last season. Head coach Mark Jackson is pushing Curry to limit his turnovers, and prays that his star can stay healthy. Per NBA.com: “Q: What is your challenge to Steph this year? MJ: ‘My only thing with Steph, and he knows it, is that he has to do a better job taking care of the basketball. I asked him before camp started, what’s the biggest thing for him in camp? And he said ‘taking care of the basketball.’ And I said, no. And he looked at me like I was crazy. And I said, no — coming out of camp healthy. That’s the biggest thing. So I don’t want to put any demands on his body, or doing crazy stuff in the middle of practice, trying to split two guys and spin. Take care of the basketball, continually get better, and stay healthy. That’s our biggest thing, anyway. We’ve got guys who was here a month early. So I don’t have to run ‘em crazy or go two a days five times. We did it twice the first two days, and in those situations, our night practices were moreso dummy offense, no contact. So there was no need. They came here early. I’m not going to punish them. They should get rewarded.’”

    Every coach want’s all of their players to commit less TO’s…

    But Curry will really raise his game if he raises his assist #’s and keeps that TO # under 3.

    If you read the blurb, Mark Jackson said the biggest thing was actually coming out of camp healthy.
