According to the Warriors, a six-time NBA champion as a player and coach, Kerr holds an overall regular-season record of 140-24 (.854) in two seasons with Golden State.

Kerr received 64 first-place votes for the Coach of the Year Award and 381 total points from a panel of 130 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. 

Meanwhile, the Warriors are making their playoff run without the help of Steph Curry. 

Curry will likely be out for several weeks with a sprained knee.

According to a tweet sent out by the Warriors, Steph Curry underwent an MRI Monday morning, which revealed he has a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his right knee. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Curry was injured in Sunday’s game at Houston. He had returned after missing two games with a sprained right ankle, but did not play in the second half after spraining his right knee on the final play of the second quarter.
