Steve Kerr talks about what's next for the Warriors after a 53-point blowout loss vs. the Raptors

The Toronto Raptors did the unthinkable in the game last night against the Warriors beating them by 53 points with the final score being 130-77. At some point, the Warriors were even down by 60 points, and it was really one of those games where nothing went their way, unlike the Raptors, who were hitting one shot after the other. The Warrior's only lead at the beginning of the game was when they were up 3-0; however, since that moment, the Raptors outsourced them 130-74.

Pascal Siakam and Gary Trent Jr. led the way for the Raptors combining for 70 points, almost outscoring the entire Warriors squad. The only one that put up some effort on the Warriors was Andrew Wiggins, who finished the game with 15 points. Raptors 53- point win against the Warriors was the largest margin of victory in franchise history, the 4th largest in the NBA since 2000, and tied for the 21st largest in league history.

Even though the Warriors were missing Steph Curry and Draymond Green this game, their head coach Steve Kerr wasn't happy with his team's performance and, in a press conference after the game, said the Warriors are in desperate time to do some soul searching.

As a coach, you try to navigate the season with your team as best you can. There are times for humor; there are times for joy, there are times for jokes, serious discussion, and soul searching. This is a time for soul searching for sure."

At the beginning of the season, everybody thought that the Warriors are a legitimate playoff squad, but now things are not looking so hopeful for them even though they are still in playoff contention. When Kerr mentioned soul searching, he might be referring to giving up on this season, getting another high pick in the draft, and getting ready for the next season when hopefully Klay will be back. This team, even when healthy, doesn't have enough firepower to make it past the second round of the playoffs. When Draymond and Curry return, things should look better for them, and their leadership is an essential factor, especially in games like this one against the Raptors when everything is going downhill really fast.
