Stephen Curry scored 34 points, Klay Thompson added 24 and the short-handed Golden State Warriors overcame a slow start to take a 3-0 lead in their playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers with a 119-113 victory on Saturday night. However, while the Warriors' initial concern was with superstar forward Kevin Durant, the attention has since turned toward their head coach in Steve Kerr.
Though Kerr's health improved in the regular season - he coached in all 82 games - the symptoms have flared up in recent weeks to a point where he is unable to perform usual coaching duties.
Kerr is now expected to miss at least the rest of the Warriors' opening round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. 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.
"We know I'm not the same guy that I'm supposed to be right now", he said.
"I don't want to play one game and sit out another two weeks". He watched Game 3 Saturday from his hotel room with his son. "He thinks like a player does, wanting to get back".

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. There has been no official word on the availability of Durant for Game 4, but even if he doesn't play, I'm taking the Warriors to complete the sweep with a win and cover here as I felt that Game 3 was always going to be the Blazers' best chance to win in this series.
He is credited with helping Portland's post-All-Star break surge, when the team went 18-8 and finished at.500.
Kerr's absence will be tough on the team, however long it takes, but they also have the formula, leadership, continuity, and support staff to weather the storm until Kerr can return.
Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 6-0 ATS in their last six road games, 14-3-1 ATS in their last 18 games overall and 22-7 ATS in their last 29 Conference Quarterfinals games. Kerr was named Coach of the Year.
