Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who is recovering from a procedure on his back to alleviate spinal fluid leakage, will be in attendance for Sunday's Western Conference Finals series opener. The Spurs came out on fire, and had built a 20-point lead by halftime.

More than anything, the Golden State family was happy to see his face and hear his voice.

Plus, he already has made a solid mark on this team and, as with the first two rounds, the Warriors are locked in and ready to rumble, whether it is Brown or Kerr calling the plays.

Although Brown will continue to coach the team for the foreseeable future, he has told reporters he speaks daily with Kerr, who still has a major influence over the team despite his absence.

You couldn't build a stadium like it now because of how high those banks are. "And my number one, when we won the UEFA Cup final". The easy thing is to arrive at some club and ask for players and ask the owner for big money.

Kerr has been sidelined since the first round of the playoffs with recurring back pain, but he was in Oracle Arena to support the Warriors as a spectator from the locker room for the first time since taking leave. "He's obviously been doing his homework in between. Not just the players, but us as a staff, so it was good to see him out here today". His ability to be here means a lot. "We've been trying to push it and trying to push it, but now we're turning it over a little bit". "The more that he can be around, the better feel that all of us have.

We're a little out of sorts", Kerr said.

Despite Kerr's recent activity, there is no current timetable for his return.

"He's gone through hell", Popovich said.
