Mark Jackson received a third-place vote for coach of the year from Ric Bucher.

Matt Steinmetz

I got Stephen Curry with big game on Thursday. He's due: 6-for-28 from 3-point range in past four playoff games.

Rusty Simmons

Warriors Mark Jackson ties for ninth in the Coach of the Year voting, receiving one third-place vote. Popovich wins with 59 1st-places nods.

Matt Steinmetz

Challenge for the Clippers will be to duplicate their energy/aggressiveness at Oracle. Not gonna be easy.

Matt Steinmetz

In 1985, Celtics beat Lakers 148-114 in Game 1 of NBA Finals. Boston lost series. Blowouts happen, and still worth only one loss.

The full Joe Lacob interview transcript will post tomorrow morning.

Tim Kawakami

Lacob on Oakland and the A's: "I think there’s a site in Oakland where a new stadium could be built and I think everyone could be happy."

Tim Kawakami

Lacob also confirmed that he has asked John Fisher about the A's and that Fisher has said the team is not for sale.

Tim Kawakami

2nd-toLast Lacob: "But we made the decision that we felt was best for our fans and for San Francisco, the Bay Area and for ourselves."

Tim Kawakami

On Piers 30/32 skeptics: "It’s fair for them to have said that and it’s fair for them to gloat a little bit right now if they want to...

Tim Kawakami

More Lacob: "But at the end of the day we have to look at this and say, what is practical? ...

Tim Kawakami

Lacob on leaving the splashy Piers 30/32 site: "We would’ve liked to have been able to succeed there and I think we probably could have....

Tim Kawakami

Before the game, I spoke to Joe Lacob about the Warriors' move off of the Piers 30/32 site and to Mission Bay, planned for a 2018 opening...

Tim Kawakami

The Clippers at their best are much, much better than the Warriors, so how do the Warriors stop them now? bit.ly/Pphrsj

Marcus Thompson

Chris Paul on going to Oracle: "We know we won't see much red."

Marcus Thompson

Question to Blake: "How did not having fouls change things for you?" Paul interjected: "You didn't have any."

Tim Kawakami

Jackson just spent most of this timeout jawing with Brothers.

Tim Kawakami

The last time Tony Brothers officiated a game when Steph Curry got jostled, Mark Jackson erupted in his post-game presser. Game 5 vs. DEN.

Marcus Thompson

Speights and Big Baby have to be separated

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 105, #Warriors 73 (end 3) Stephen Curry has a 20-point third quarter, and the Clippers extend their lead by six points.

Marcus Thompson

Curry threw his mouth piece after getting knocked to the ground for the second consecutive drive with no foul ... Rare tech

Rusty Simmons

Now, Curry has to keep taking hits from the Clippers without anything guarding his teeth.

Marcus Thompson

Curry just picked up the ball and threw his mouth piece after getting knocked to the ground for the second consecutive drive with no foul

Rusty Simmons

Stephen Curry just got a technical foul for tossing his mouthpiece at the Clippers' bench.

Tim Kawakami

Officially: Steph Curry vs. the World, by the way. Might be needed for all of Game 3.

Marcus Thompson

Chris Paul's intimidation of everything around him is unreal

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 82, #Warriors 53 (6:01, 3rd) Steph Curry has five points in the past 87 seconds. He scored four points in the opening 28:21.

Marcus Thompson

Curry getting into what @Tim Kawakami calls "Curry vs. The World" mode. Way too late though

Diamond Leung

Blake Griffin and Jermaine O'Neal appear to be exchanging phone numbers now.

Marcus Thompson

Jermaine and Blake yapping again

Rusty Simmons

DeAndre Jordan has five blocked shots and just picked up his first personal foul.

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 73, #Warriors 44 (10:14, 3rd) Warriors coach Mark Jackson spent most of the timeout trying to get a technical from Rodney Mott.

Marcus Thompson

Jackson has spent the first 30 seconds of the timeout pleading with ref

Rusty Simmons

Klay Thompson picks up his fourth foul in the opening minute of the third quarter.

Marcus Thompson

Figured the Warriors would lose, even by double digits. Didn't expect this

Tim Kawakami

Lacob, Guber, Myers and Kirk Lacob talking together rather emphatically about 30 feet from @Marcus Thompson and me.

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 67, #Warriors 41 (half) Thompson 7 pts, Lee 6 pts/4 reb, Speights 6 pts/4 reb, Curry 4 pts (1-for-6)/5 ast; Griffin 21 pts, 5 reb.

Tim Kawakami

At halftime, Blake Griffin has already played more minutes (20) and scored more points (21) than he did in Game 1.

Diamond Leung

Some Clippers fans chanted "overrated" at Stephen Curry while he was shooting free throws.

Tim Kawakami

Still curious to see what happens when both teams play well--maybe Game 3 on Thursday at Oracle. But the Clippers are much more talented.

Tim Kawakami

Right now the Clippers are playing incredibly and the Warriors are awful--and are getting blown out of the water.

Tim Kawakami

The Clippers played poorly in Game 1, and lost when the Warriors played pretty well (but not great)...

Marcus Thompson

You know its a bad night when Jordan and Griffin are a combined 13 for 15 from the FT line

Rusty Simmons

Stephen Curry is on the board at the 2:45 mark of the second quarter. He hit a 20-foot pull-up jumper after missing his first four shots.

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 56, #Warriors 33 (2:59, 2nd) LAC has its largest lead, and Draymond Green takes a foul, so GSW can get Jermaine O'Neal off floor.

Tim Kawakami

Assistant coach Armstrong coming in. First he can diagram some new plays that don't result in Warriors turnovers.

Tim Kawakami

Chris Paul 1 basket, Steph Curry 0 baskets. It hurts one team more than the other.

Rusty Simmons

Doc Rivers and Jermaine O'Neal just exchanged some words. They eventually each picked technical fouls.

Tim Kawakami

Double tech, and deserved.

Tim Kawakami

Looked like Jermaine O'Neal and Doc Rivers had a few words there.

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 52, #Warriors 31 (5:48, 2nd) The Warriors have made 12 field goals and have committed 10 turnovers. The Clippers' ratio is 20-to-4

Marcus Thompson

Warriors down 21 with 5:48 left and nothing is going right

Tim Kawakami

Clippers were +8 with Griffin OUT. That's not a good sign for the Warriors. He's back in.

Rusty Simmons

Game 5 between the Warriors and Clippers will be at 7:30 p.m. (Pacific) on April 29 and telecast by TNT.

Marcus Thompson

Clippers push lead to 20 with Paul and Griffin and Jordan on the bench

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 46, #Warriors 28 (8:30, 2nd) Clippers bench has outscored Warriors 19-17. Jamal Crawford, who was 2-for-11 in Game 1, has 7 points

Marcus Thompson

Jackson calls a timeout with the lead now 18. Jordan Crawford is looking awful

Marcus Thompson

Clippers have now made two-thirds of their shots. Warriors down 43-28

Tim Kawakami

Doc Rivers' staff made some good adjustments, it seems. Attacking more form the wings.

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 31, #Warriors 20 (end 1) Blake Griffin has 14 points. The Warriors' starters have 11. Chris Paul has five assists. GSW has six.

Tim Kawakami

That Clipper basket is under review to see if it beat the buzzer. Looking live, I don't think it did but we'll see.

Marcus Thompson

Clippers 11 of 19 shooting. The Warriors 8 of 21. Clippers 4 turnovers, Warriors 6 turnovers

Rusty Simmons

Steve Blake, the former Laker, gets booed by the Clippers' crowd. They didn't seem to notice him in Saturday's Game 1.

Marcus Thompson

Thompson picks up his third reaching in on Matt Barnes

Rusty Simmons

Klay Thompson, defending Matt Barnes, picks up his third personal foul.

Marcus Thompson

With two fouls, I probably take Thompson off Paul

Tim Kawakami

I'm told Jerry West is here for this game. Probably pacing in a suite or hallway or in the parking lot. Wasn't here for Game 1.

Marcus Thompson

Remember when Klay practically only shot 3s?

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 15, #Warriors 4 (6:51, 1st) Maybe the Warriors have the Clippers right where they want them. GSW was down 12-1 in Game 1.

Marcus Thompson

Warriors now have 6 team fouls in just over five minutes of action

Tim Kawakami

Warriors' only two buckets have been dunks. Everything else so far: 0 for 9.

Marcus Thompson

Klay waves for David Lee to get back on defense instead of complaining about foul call

Tim Kawakami

Warriors open up 2 for 10. Maybe Hilton Armstrong needs to make another tweak to the offense.

Marcus Thompson

Clippers out fast again, up 13-4 on Warriors

Rusty Simmons

Klay Thompson has two early fouls. Mark Jackson might have switch Andre Iguodala over to defend Chris Paul.

Rusty Simmons

O'Neal's flagrant gets downgraded to a common personal foul.

Rusty Simmons

Jermaine O'Neal picks up a flagrant foul after a two-handed shove in DeAndre Jordan's back keeps the Clipper center from dunking.

Marcus Thompson

The last guy I would expect to celebrate going to overtime like it were winning the NBA Finals would be Derek Fisher

Marcus Thompson

Mark Jackson should've just let Hilton Armstrong have his shine

Tim Kawakami

Joe Lacob switched seats from Game 1--he's courtside, but across from the Warriors' bench, not right next to it.

Tim Kawakami

Just ran into Mark Davis--great seats, of course.

Rusty Simmons

Game 2 GSW at LAC starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Lee, O'Neal; LAC -- Paul, Redick, Barnes, Griffin, Jordan. Out: Bogut/Ezeli.

Tim Kawakami

Source: Warriors' official Mission Bay site presser will NOT include the commissioner. OK, that was me joking to a GSW exec, but still

NBA has fined Toronto GM Masai Ujiri $25,000.

Rusty Simmons

Mark Jackson on Chris Paul: "He's the guy I would call the lead assistant on the Clippers. He's the general out there."

Rusty Simmons

Mark Jackson: "We didn't come here to get home-court advantage. We came here to play two games and to win two games."

Marcus Thompson

Mark Jackson: "We didn't come here to win one game."
