Steve Kerr has hinted at adjustments to the Warriors' rotations for many days, and he finally got to show them off against the Kings at Chase Center on Monday.

Needless to say, despite the Warriors' 116-113 victory over the Kings, Kerr and his staff still have a lot of work to do.

Kerr informed reporters before the game that he expected to shrink the Warriors' second units, and he did so against the Kings, with mixed results.

Anthony Lamb, a two-way player, and 2021 lottery choice Jonathan Kuminga were the first two players off the bench in the first quarter. Jordan Poole and Ty Jerome both saw action in the first period.

Moses Moody entered the game in the second quarter, but James Wiseman and JaMychal Green did not.

With the Warriors behind by 12 at halftime, Kerr made another move, moving Poole into the starting lineup in favour of Kevon Looney.

"First half was basically like we intended," Kerr said after the game.

"And then at halftime, we decided to start Jordan for Loon, just to throw a changeup out there.
