Steve Kerr delivers inspiring halftime speech before Warriors' big Game 1 comeback

Though Kerr did not speak to the media, Stephen Curry was glad to have his head coach back and taking part in team meetings. The reigning National Basketball Association coach of the year is recovering from a procedure to alleviate debilitating symptoms stemming from two back surgeries in 2015.

"Anytime we hear his voice, feel his presence, it means a lot", Curry told ESPN's Steve Levy. "That's what you were used to and when you don't have it for a while, you kind of miss it".

Kerr also attended yesterday's practice.

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 nearly two years ago. "He's obviously been doing his homework in between, his downtime to help us get prepared for the series". But that doesn't mean he's been absent from the locker room and practice court.
