Draymond Green’s late stops fuel rally in Warriors’ Game 1 win
As Portland’s Damian Lillard crossed over Kevin Durant and drove toward the key, Draymond Green tore away from his man along the perimeter. Lillard tumbled to the floor. Green stood and glared down at the two-time All-Star, lying flat on his stomach. In that fourth-quarter moment, with the Warriors nursing an eight-point lead over Portland, Green reveled in yet another highlight-caliber stop.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Ailing Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says he won't be on the sidelines for Game 4 on Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers because of symptoms stemming from back surgery.
Kerr stayed behind at the team hotel for Saturday night's Game 3 at Portland's Moda Center. Assistant Mike Brown took over and the Warriors overcame a 17-point first-half deficit to win 119-113 and go up 3-0 in the first-round series.
Golden State can sweep with a victory Monday night.
The reigning NBA coach of the year still experiences lingering symptoms from complications following two back surgeries after the franchise's run to the 2015 championship. He missed the first 43 games last season dealing with symptoms such as headaches, nausea and an aching neck.
Kerr compiling an impressive career, 1 trophy at a time
Cristie Kerr always talked bigger than her game, and she might last long enough on the LPGA Tour to back it up. Nearly five months after knee surgery, and a recovery that took twice as long as expected, Kerr won the LPGA Lotte Championship in Hawaii last week in a manner that surprised everyone but her. She was on the wrong side of the cut 11 holes into her second round, ran off 21 birdies over the next 43 holes at Ko Olina, won by three shots and set the tournament's 72-hole record.She referred to the final round as an ''epic day.

Stephen Douglas Kerr (born September 27, 1965) is an American professional basketball coach and former player who is the head coach of the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball
"This is something I've been dealing with, but doing OK. Ups and downs but consistently coaching. This past week for whatever reason, things got worse. My symptoms got worse," he told reporters at the team hotel on Sunday.
Kerr, who clearly wasn't feeling well on Friday before the team departed for Portland, hadn't missed a game this season before Saturday, when he also missed shootaround.
He said that his status for the rest of the playoffs remains uncertain. He is in ongoing discussions with his doctors.
"This is not going to be a case where I'm coaching one night and not coaching the next. I'm not going to do that to our team or our staff. We're hoping that over the next week or two, whatever it is, I can sort of make a definitive realization or deduction, or just feel it that I'm going to do this or I'm not.
Stephen Curry, who scored 34 points in the Game 3 win, passed the game ball to Golden State GM Bob Myers to give to Kerr on Saturday night.
Golf fans roast LPGA Tour star for slow play after never-ending playoff
The issue of slow play is one constantly talked about and debated within the world of golf, and on Sunday, it reared its head once again at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout. Before highlighting the criticism its worth noting that it's easy to slam players for playing too slow. Cristie Kerr caught heat for it on Sunday after trying to run the clock during her six hole playoff against Haru Nomura, perhaps deservedly so, but it's also an illustration of the mindset that has solidified her among the top of the women's game.

"He's obviously going through a lot physically and that's first and foremost for him to take care of himself, make sure he's on the road to recovery and feeling like himself," Curry said. "We've got his back, we've had certain situations all year, previous years, where players are down and you've got the `next man up' philosophy, same with Coach Kerr."
A first-year assistant for Golden State, Brown has plenty of experience as former head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers.
In the first of two stints with Cleveland, Brown led the Cavs to their first-ever NBA Finals appearance in 2007. He himself was named the league's Coach of the Year in 2009 when Cleveland finished with 66 wins.
Despite Kerr's prolonged absence, the Warriors went an NBA record 73-9 last season and played in the NBA championship game. Kerr was named Coach of the Year.
Kerr works out daily and does yoga to help control the symptoms.
"I'm not going to go into details on the symptoms. It's just discomfort and pain and it's no fun. And I can tell you if you're listening out there, if you have a back problem, stay away from surgery. I can say that from the bottom of my heart. Rehab, rehab, rehab. Don't let anybody get in there," he said.

We don’t know. But the procedure went well, as far as we know. Now it’s a case of how well it takes and when he might or might not be back.
