Warriors coach Steve Kerr was at the Oracle Arena on Sunday to see Golden State’s 113-111 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
This was the first game Kerr attended since taking an indefinite leave of absence in the middle of the first round because of complications from back surgery almost two years ago. Kerr watched the game from the Warriors’ locker room and he delivered a motivational halftime speech to his team, who was facing a 20-point deficit after two quarters.

Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
