Steve Kerr didn’t coach during Sunday’s Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, but he was at Oracle to support his team. The Golden State Warriors coach, who has been out and dealing with issues related to leaking spinal cord fluid, was at practice and in the building for the matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.
Despite their time off, the Warriors looked sloppy in the first half against San Antonio and Gregg Popovich’s squad jumped out to a huge 62-42 lead at the half.
That prompted Kerr to get involved in the Warriors’ locker room, giving out a little pep talk to his boys. Kerr felt they had played a bit erratic, and that they could build on momentum by getting multiple stops in a row.
Game 2 is in Oakland on Tuesday.
