Warriors' Steve Kerr back on sideline, will coach Game 2

Warriors' Steve Kerr back on sideline, will coach Game 2

The 2017 NBA Finals are underway and things didn't quite go as planned for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With Green on the shelf, the Cavaliers coasted to a 15-point win in Oakland, and perhaps more importantly, Andrew Bogut got hurt, removing a critical component of Golden State's rotation for the final two games of the championship series.

Speaking shortly before Game Two against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kerr said he was feeling somewhat better.

Durant and Curry combined for 66 points and 18 assists, moving the Warriors three straight wins from becoming the first team to go unbeaten on the way to a title.

Stoneback said the Cavaliers should be able to keep it close if they take better care of the ball than in Game 1, when they lost the turnover battle, 20-4.

Smiling, cracking jokes and looking more comfortable than he has in recent weeks, Kerr declared himself ready to be back on the bench for Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Samardzija, a former football player at Notre Dame, was one of the first to arrive at the mound after both benches emptied. During Game 4, Harper stared down Strickland while round the bases as the Giants reliever had some choice words for him.

Kerr, the NBA's reigning coach of the year, has guided the Warriors to the Finals three consecutive seasons.

The Warriors lead the best-of-7 series 1-0 after winning 113-91 in Game 1 on Thursday. They're going to try to get more offensive rebounds.

Yet the Warriors expect the Cavs to make adjustments defensively, something Cleveland has already made a focal point.

Assistant coach Mike Brown has filled in for Kerr during his absence as the Warriors have gone undefeated in the postseason. "You got to really get out here and get a chance to do it firsthand". "I wouldn't be in this if I was thinking one game".

Not only are the Warriors the best defensive team in the National Basketball Association, they also make you pay for turning the ball over. "But since that time - and it's probably been, I don't know, five, six weeks - I've gotten a lot better and I feel like I'm back to the baseline of where I was during the regular season". "We just have to get better". There were too many possessions in the third quarter where the Cavs would quickly launch up lazy attempts, leading to fastbreak chances the other way.
