07:30 AM ET 01.23 | Earlier this week, the Warriors played on national TV for the third time in four games, which turned out to be a 102-94 loss. [TNT] will back in Oakland for the Jan. 30 game against the Clippers. Andre Iguodala hates every second of it. "I hate (national) TV games," the Warriors' starting small forward said. ... "TV games can play tricks on you. You want to play at a high level every night, but you can kind of see how some guys may get up a little bit more for TV games, and that might mess with the flow. Guys want to show the world what they can do, and it should be more than that. You should want to play well as a unit on national TV. When you have young guys, guys might shoot a couple of extra shots that they normally don't shoot, so TV games are dangerous. They can be trick games."

Great answer but pretty dumb at the same time. What will happen come playoff time? Aren't most playoff games on national TV? These guys should embrace it and get use to it.

To all players: just focus on each game and go out and play your best.
