Warriors' Steve Kerr returns to the bench to coach Game 2

He hasn't been on the sidelines since April 19.

"They won two games", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, "now we've got to go home and regroup".

The Cavs will try to avoid falling into an 0-2 series hole when they visit Oracle Arena for Game 2 on Sunday night.

Coach Steve Kerr had hoped to be on the bench for Games 1, but opted to stay in the locker room as he continues to recover from difficulties from his back surgery nearly two years ago. "The last few days have been hard". Between Durant, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson, they have three of the best scorers in the game today. I did that, and feeling well enough to coach.

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.

When Kerr took a leave of absence during Golden State's first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers, he made it clear he wouldn't return until he felt confident there wouldn't be an immediate setback, per Tim Kawakami of the Bay Area News Group.

"That Mike guy did OK while I was gone, so that was good", Kerr joked.

Very wicked, to target that sort of thing", the 91-year-old monarch told 14-year-old Evie Mills and her parents. Abedi's father and younger brother have also been arrested in Libya following the attack.

Kerr also missed parts of last season because of complications from back surgery while current Los Angeles Laker head coach Luke Walton filled in as the Warriors' acting coach.

Two teams that believe they can improve on their opening performance hook up against Sunday in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. I think the Cavs on Sunday will make a pointed emphasis to not letting him get so many easy attempts around the rim. He added that he had not informed the team but expected the players to know soon.

Looking back on it now, Green told ESPN's Tom Rinaldi that he accepts responsibility for the team blowing a 3-1 lead to Cleveland. He underwent a procedure at Duke University in early May to help alleviate some pain.

"Well, it's been a great run but none of that matters unless we can finish the job with this series", Kerr said.

Steve Kerr is a kidder.

Said Warriors coach Steve Kerr, "I just felt like he was poised to come out and make some shots tonight". "But having him back on the bench means a lot". This is what I love to do. "I'm not going to do that to our team, our staff".

Kerr had gradually increased his participation over the past two weeks, and was regularly attending practices and games.
