Making his return from complications resulting from his 2015 back surgery, Steve Kerr received a huge ovation from the home crowd at Oracle Arena before Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Kerr still isn’t 100 percent, but said during his pregame presser: “The intention is to coach tonight and the rest of the series.”

Kerr hadn’t been on the sidelines since Game 2 of the Warriors’ first-round series against at Portland.

Before tipoff, even LeBron James took a moment to welcome back Kerr (via @Ananth_Pandian).
