Steve Kerr destroys whiteboard

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Golden State Warriors won Game 1 of the NBA Finals by 15 points, but they didn’t always have such a big lead. Early in the third quarter, the Cleveland Cavaliers made a run and took a lead against the Warriors starters. An angry Golden State coach Steve Kerr called a timeout, and as the players sat on the bench, Kerr and his assistant coaches huddled up on the court. And to release some of the pressure of the moment, Kerr took it out on his whiteboard. “Destruction tends to ease some of the anger,” Kerr joked later. “So I try to take it out on a clipboard instead of a player. So it’s better that way. We came out after halftime and we completely lost focus, throwing careless passes. We got lost defensively a couple of times, and we had to kind of regain our focus and our edge. The bench did that for us, so they did a great job.”
