After the game, Stephen Curry acknowledged the importance of Kerr's presence and the value of his message at halftime.

It was unclear whether the 51-year-old Kerr would watch the Warriors from the arena for Sunday's Game 1 or stay home. That's when Kerr, who was attending his first game since taking a leave of absence in the middle of Golden State's first-round playoff series to deal with health complications related to back surgery he underwent in 2015, stepped into the Warriors' locker room and delivered a calm yet clearly impactful speech.

ABC's cameras showed a clip of Coach Kerr at halftime talking to his team, who at the time were down 20 points to the visiting Spurs.

"It's great any time you can hear his voice, see his face", said Curry. His demeanor and tone revealed way he has been the most successful National Basketball Association coach since entering the coaching ranks three years ago. It was reported last week that Kerr had a spinal cord leak procedure while at Duke. He was back Saturday for another game-planning session before practice. "And so the more he can be around, the better feel that all of us have ... it was good to see him out here today". He did not attend the games during the previous series against the Utah Jazz. I thought our defense was actually really good in the first quarter, but then, you know we turn it over, we give up some easy ones, so now we're playing from behind and then the second quarter we got out of sorts. And just just settle in on like three stops in a row - let's get three stops in a row and the push will come from that.
