Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson says that the team did not play good basketball during their pre-season loss to the Utah Jazz.

Mark Jackson has said that the Golden State Warriors did not play well in their pre-season loss to the Utah Jazz.

The Warriors went down 101-78 last night, falling to their second defeat of the pre-season.

The head coach told reporters: "We didn't play good basketball. They outworked us. They were more physical. And like I said, it doesn't matter who's on the floor, our identity remains the same. Just disappointed.

"Right now, we haven't looked like ourselves. I thought early on, we played well. I thought what happened is their bench came in and they impacted the game. I believe they outscored our bench 30-13. And it wasn't just our bench, because our starters were in there for a time.

"It's just that they picked up the intensity, they played with great force, and they changed the game. They took it over from that point."

The team will now head to China, where they are scheduled to play two games against the Los Angeles Lakers.
