Gibson checking in so ankle is a go.
Rose can get the triple-double with those 9 turnovers and five rebounds.
Pau falls down a lot lately.
Give Rose the assist! So he can have one this game!
These two teams are playing like 10 dudes running full court in a college open gym right now. Very little D, just racing up and down floor.
Gasol just went all Whiteside!
Taj Gibson appears to be fine. Joking around with players while trying to get warmed up.
GST 56-51 Bulls 38% Rose with 12 (5-14) Gasol flirting with triple dbl 6-8-5. Taj 8-8 Thompson with 20
Several curtains were hurt in the making of Dunleavy's jacket.
Taj walking it off. Looks like he might be OK.
Gibson trying to walk off his ankle tweak but coming out of game.
Taj in pain ... looks like the right ankle.
Gibson heads to the bench...looks a bit gimpy
Should have played this game at Rucker Park.
Looks like Taj may have rolled his ankle again. Being checked out by Jeff Tanaka.
Rose did say today that he's not getting calls.
Welcome back, Niko. It's been awhile.
Thompson now guarding the Rose.
Bulls fans..I love ya....what's up? Bulls without Dunleavy- Butler hanging in.
A ton of Bulls fans in here tonight. The organization's international following is always impressive to see.
Credit to Bulls for hanging tough so far. They are not getting flustered, just keep playing. Derrick Rose has 12 points.
Threeeeekola from downtown....GST up 49-47 412 left 2nd Q
Bulls took the punch and are now counter-punching. It's like every Rocky movie ... ever!
Curry sagging at the three, daring the No. 1 to shoot it. Good discipline by Rose to still attack.
Shooters everywhere cheering for a Warriors-Hawks Finals.
Think about it ... even Golden State's coach can hit threes ... weapons everywhere and lethal from anywhere.
Warriors 49-39 GST 8 of 15-3s
The Warriors are fun to watch, man.
This is just a pick-up game right now ... and Steve Kerr had the first two picks.
Taj Gibson was moving the ball out of the post the first month of the season. That has obviously stopped.
A rarity.....Coach Griff with a tech.....wow
Was the T on Adrian Griffin ... who knew he even spoke?
The box score read that Adrian Griffin picked up that T. Hard to believe given how soft spoken Griff usually is.
Noah has said this is best he has felt all season-as he did this morning-before but way he is moving defensively is backing it up some.
Thompson is a ball hog.
Could have been a lot worse than down just 6.
Curry and Thompson 10-14 in 1st and 5-7 on threes for 25 pts in 35-29 W's lead. Probably need to get those guys on scouting report next time
The Bulls better mix in a little D now -- or else this one is going to get ugly in the 2nd half. Warriors getting whatever they want now.
Golden State 35-29 ends of 1...Thompson and Curry= 25 Rose-10points
Warriors PR says Andrew Bogut has the flu and will not play.
Bogut out for Warriors with flu.
Thibodeau follows through on pregame hint he may try Mirotic at small forward again. He's gone back and forth on that all season.
They just showed the replay of the Curry three. Rose made no attempt to even try and get through the screen. Business decision.
GST 23-20 Fast break 13-0 Warriors Thompson-15 Rose-10 ...Gasol 6 reb
Amazing crowd in Oakland; audible reaction to every play. Nothing like it anywhere in NBA.
Bulls would be in good shape if Warriors just, you know, didn't hit every shot they attempted. Actually just 7-8 as Bulls lock down: 19-12
Klay Thompson with 13 5-5 fgs 3-3 from 3pt range Rose with 8 GST 19-12
Klay Thompson has 13 points in just over 4 minutes. That's a lot -- but given what he did Friday night it's become the norm for him.
Sometimes you're just not good enough.
Fairly breathtaking how quickly the Warriors can score.
#1 showed up so far.
Bulls don't start slowly this time. 10 pts in first 3:10; Rose pair of threes; Warriors, though with 14
No better atmosphere than Oracle. Best in the league. Rose loves it.
37-point quarter could be challenged.
Appears Bulls never got a chance to watch Thompson 37-point quarter; Opens game with pair of threes. OK, who's got that guy?
It would be nice to see the No. 1 do something special tonight, especially on this stage.
Hinrich on Thompson to start. Snell on Barnes.
Derrick Rose ran over to hug Warriors assistant and former Bulls assistant Ron Adams just before tip.
Warriors by 13.
Bulls starters: Snell, Gasol, Noah, Hinrich and Rose.
Warriors' fans...if you're at the Oracle tonight--stop by and say hello--upstairs in section 114. Go Bulls!
Thibs needs to be the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket II. "Many of you will not like me because I am hard ...''
Thibs basically questioned the toughness of all sports these days, from the NFL and its restrictions to baseball and pitch-counts. Love it!
Thibs pregame said Butler is out ill; Mirotic will again play some small forward, McDermott may play some, next man up, yadda
Tons of Bulls fans here in Oakland....tremendous following and a great brand throughout the world. Go Bulls !
Thibodeau had fodder for minutes police pregame, talked about Duncan averaging 40 minutes early in career and Phil Jackson playing MJ always
Thibodeau said he may look at Mirotic at small forward again.
Jimmy Butler is a no go .
Thibodeau said "gotta start somewhere" when asked if McDermott is ready. But then sounded non-committal afterward. So stay tuned.
Thibs says Butler is out tonight because of an illness.
Dunleavy still out, while Butler is out.
Butler is out vs. Warriors.
With Curry, Thompson in now, Steve Kerr reminiscing about winning All-Star 3-point contest in 97. Said MJ had champagne waiting in hotel.
Like Manute Bol is really tall http://t.co/M4o4rdfLbT
Salami and Cheese Its over
Not really in to the dunk contest after Dr J , MJ , Nique and Air Canada. But I am intrigued with LaVine. This kid can fly and dunk
Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine, the Magic’s Victor Oladipo and the Nets’ Mason Plumlee. Slam Dunk Contest
Kobe is all set for season-ending shoulder surgery. A specialist will also be brought in to try and remove his overinflated ego.
Would love to see a Rose-Curry mix tape tonight. Old school Nique-Bird showdown.
Rose said there's a lot of his game that he hasn't touched yet. Well, there's just under $19 million reasons this year to start touching it.
The last time Rose faced Curry he scored 9 points. It's big boy time.
