Warriors take down Spurs 122-105 to give Kerr 250th win

OAKLAND, Calif. — Steve Kerr shouted out Luke Walton for his help reaching 250 coaching victories in record time.

Kerr trash talked old coach Phil Jackson, now the second-quickest to 250 wins behind his former Bulls player.

Then, Kerr offered credit where he always does: to his uber-talented roster of All-Stars.

Klay Thompson scored 25 points, 10 coming in the third quarter to help Golden State pull away, and the Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs 122-105 on Saturday.

Fellow Splash Brother Stephen Curry added 17 points and eight assists in Kerr’s milestone night.

“It’s been an amazing 3 1/2 years and hopefully more to come,” Curry said. “It’s a lot about him setting the identity and the culture around our team and just being a great people guy. There’s probably a better term for that. He just knows how to relate to each and every one of us players and his coaching staff and you’re building that ultimate trust throughout the organization.”

Kerr reached 250 wins in 302 games to top Jackson, who made the mark in 346 games.

“He had Michael Jordan for God sake, so I don’t know what Phil’s problem was,” Kerr cracked.

Yet Kerr, the 2016 NBA Coach of the Year, received 39 victories during a leave of absence following complications from back surgery at the start of the 2015-16 season, when then-top assistant and current Lakers coach Walton coached Golden State.

Draymond Green had 17 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in another well-rounded outing — and his first technical-free game in the last three. Zaza Pachulia scored 12 points on his 34th birthday and Kevin Durant was limited to a season-low 10 points in a rare cold night from the floor at 3-of-9, but had six rebounds and dished out six assists.

LaMarcus Aldridge and Kyle Anderson led San Antonio with 20 points apiece, while Manu Ginobili had 13 points and six assists off the bench for the Spurs.

Thompson had a quick five-point burst midway through the third.

Curry provided a brief scare when he grimaced after appearing to get a foot tangled with Danny Green before a break at the 8:45 mark of the third.

He was examined by athletic trainer Chelsea Lane and stayed in the game.

“I’m fine … my ankle but I’m fine,” Curry said with a grin.
