The Golden State Warriors notched impressive wins over the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder the past week, but it was a shocking loss to the lowly Phoenix Suns last Sunday that had the biggest impact on the team.

“I think the loss to Phoenix opened our eyes a little bit,” head coach Steve Kerr said after Saturday’s 110-88 win over the Thunder, per Nick Friedell of ESPN.com. “And I think our guys just felt threatened on the road. We’ve played two great teams, we’ve got another one, maybe the hottest team in the league in San Antonio coming up, so anytime they’re threatened, I think our guys tend to play better.”
