Clippers of course had the Donald Sterling thing erupt between Games 3 and 4. The Warriors had tension between Mark Jackson and mgmt. Wild.

Reminisced with Alvin Gentry about last year's Warriors-Clippers Round 1. Only really good one was Game 7, but still was an epic series.

Draymond Green: "Nobody's opinion matters when it comes to June. It's all about what you do."

Draymond Green: "If we won 82 games, there would still be doubters."

General note: The Warriors are getting tired of questions about being the No. 1 seed. Further note: I asked a lot of those questions.

Andrew Bogut was the first Warrior on the court for the media session today, and here's what he said: bayareane.ws/1HcBHVl

Looking forward to getting final answer on much-debated question that's been asked all season: Does the game slow down in the playoffs?

Charles Barkley thinks the Cavaliers would beat the Warriors in the Finals, but not necessarily the Spurs, Blazers, Grizzlies or Clippers.

Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley agree that Golden State and Atlanta are "locks" to make their respective conference finals.

Note: Curry was almost certainly joking about the slate uniforms because he semi-famously isn't fond of sleeved jerseys.

Curry also joked that the team needed to wear the usual Saturday "slate" sleeved jerseys for Game 1. Oops, they've all been given away...

It's not a huge deal. But Steve Kerr mentioned the Saturday/Sunday thing and Steph Curry noted that #1 overall often gets Sunday.

Marreese Speights

Great regular season thanks warriors fans yall been great for us all season!!! #dubnation

Tim Kawakami

If the GSWs are taking any bit of chip-on-shoulder motivation, it's that they're starting on Saturday, instead of the featured Sunday slot.

At the half: #Warriors 71, #Nuggets 67. Klay with 25 (8/12, 5/7 on 3s). Steph with 10 and 6 assists. GSW rather casual on defense.
