Kerr to coach Warriors tonight

Posted June 05, 2017

He hasn't been on the sidelines since April 19. Cavaliers' coach Tyronn Lue said.

You can also watch all of the games live on the ESPN App, but you'll need a cable login to access the stream.

Kerr told reporters at a pregame press conference Sunday that his goal is to coach the rest of the series.

"They were really good on both sides, being in attack mode - whether it was playing downhill [on offense] or on the defensive end pushing us out, making the catches tough for us".

"I'm going to pull out the "Win one for the Gipper" speech", Kerr joked.

Meanwhile, according to ESPN Stats and Information, Golden State's 13-0 record in the postseason this campaign sees it drawing level with the 1988-89 Los Angeles Lakers and 2016-17 Cleveland Cavaliers for the longest postseason win streak in National Basketball Association history.

Kerr, who missed the previous 11 games with back pain, returned to the bench without a glitch. Bottom line, the Cavaliers were engaged in a way they were not in Game 1, and while the Warriors pushed the lead out to 10 at the 2:41 mark, their eight first-quarter turnovers - double how many they had in all of Game 1 - helped the Cavaliers stay close. Cleveland, on the other hand, will hope to emerge victorious and level the best-of-seven series final, which makes will make contest even more interesting. I wanted to string together a few good days.

Kevin Durant's game-high 38 points in Game 1 was largely aided by the many uncontested dunks he was able to get early in the first half, rocking the rim continuously getting through the Cleveland Cavaliers' matador defense. "And my guys did OK while I was gone". This was the first time in NBA Finals history two players on opposing teams had triple-doubles. "They probably already know because they're all on their phones all the time".

The 51-year-old Kerr underwent a procedure to fix a spinal fluid leak on May 5 at Duke University but was still experiencing debilitating symptoms such as pain and headaches.

Kerr explained why he was stepping away from the team during the Portland series.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr is back.

"I'm trying not to get wrapped up in that because this is a Finals game, and it's just about going out and trying to win", Kerr said. "But having him back on the bench means a lot".
