On Thursday night, in a nail-biting showdown against the Utah Jazz, Steve Kerr secured his 500th career win as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors.

Despite a tense fourth quarter, the Warriors emerged triumphant with a 140-137 score. Kerr now stands as the fifth-fastest coach in NBA history to reach 500 regular-season victories, a remarkable achievement in his coaching career.

Klay Thompson, making a significant impact coming off the bench for the first time since 2012, delivered an outstanding performance with 35 points, six rebounds, and two assists. 

His remarkable shooting, going 13/22 from the field and 7/13 from beyond the arc in just 28 minutes, played a crucial role in the team's success.

The dynamic duo of Draymond Green and Steph Curry contributed a combined 39 points and 15 assists, further solidifying the Warriors' dominance on the court.

With a 27-26 record in 53 games, the Warriors head into the All-Star break as the tenth seed in the Western Conference, securing the final play-in tournament spot.

Looking ahead, the Warriors are set to face the Los Angeles Lakers on February 22, aiming to build on their recent success. 

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz find themselves in a challenging position with a 26-30 record in 56 games, currently holding the 11th seed in the competitive Western Conference, and grappling with a four-game losing streak. (SOURCE: Sports Illustrated)
