Follow live: Spurs attempt to bounce back against Warriors in Game 2

Before Game 1 of their first-round series against the Warriors, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said his team had held a mock vote for Spurs’ video assistant Nick Kerr — son of Warriors head coach Steve Kerr — to leave the room. Nick was voted out, but Popovich overruled, and Nick stayed. Many jokes have been had at Nick’s expense, but Steve said it might be too much. “He’s embarrassed by it,” Steve said of his son prior to Game 2. “He doesn’t want any attention. He loves his team. He’s dying to win. He’s dying to beat us just like we’re dying to beat them. He’s unbelievably loyal to Pop and the players and I couldn’t be more proud of him. But he does not want any of this intention. I think the jokes may be over. I think we have to move past it. Poor guy.” Said Popovich, “We discussed that and it was quite funny when we did it all and everything, but there’s a limit to humor, and we decided there are going to be no more of those sorts of jokes. Nick is an intellectually gifted and wonderful young man and we didn’t want to make it a characterization. He’s working his butt off in the film room to help us in any way that he can to beat his father and the Warriors. A little bit of humor was good, but we don’t want to take it too far.”
