In case anybody is wondering: Andrew Bogut didn't fly with the team to LA. He's. not here. He's not playing
If we learned anything about Mark Jackson last year it's that he plays that lineup game. Can't believe what he says about lineups
Mark Jackson on his team: "These guys are made of the right stuff, and seeing them everyday, I won't bet against them."
Loving that Warriors now playing in games big enough to warrant meeting up with buddies to watch. Especially minutes after noon!
Festus Ezeli (knee) isn't close to playing in a game, according to Warriors head coach Mark Jackson.
Jackson said Festus won't be playing anytime soon. Guarantee it won't stop people from asking me though
Warriors coach Mark Jackson said "we're going to keep on moving on as if (Bogut) is not here." Big man rotation is O'Neal, Green, Speights.
Jermaine O'Neal will start and Draymond Green will play a lot, Mark Jackson said
Mark Jackson: "We're in battle."
Doc Rivers said Danny Granger will play in Game 1 vs. the Warriors.
This is what the Warriors will see as they head from their locker room to the Staples Center court. http://t.co/pTfF78yd9M
Bottom line, though, is as long as there are two 3-point arcs painted on the court, the Warriors have chance.
I just can't get around that Warriors go into series without high-quality player in Bogut. Teams close but that's a hurter.
Was thinking: Do you really want to "take D.Jordan" off court by fouling him if you're GSW. Or you want him awful from line but in game?
Warriors-Clippers Game 1 refs: Mike Callahan, Ron Garretson, Sean Wright.
On that @shailinne Solus Christus hype. "I been elated, ever since my hard heart was penetrated. By the grade of God I've been regenerated."
One thing that has been emphasized to me recently: Warriors management has made no decision on Mark Jackson's future, up or down.
(I never note that particular award unless it adds another relevant detail to the column I'm currently writing.)
Steph Curry named Western Conference player of the month for April. His 2nd time. First time he got the award: April last year.
Alvin Attles on Steph Curry: "He does things that amaze me. I was amazed by a guy named Wilt Chamberlain. But not too many others."
Had a good talk with Steph Curry today about how he weighs when to be a passer and when to take over a game. Transcript to come...
Mark Jackson told KNBR Marreese Speights, Hilton Armstrong and Ognjen Kuzmic are among the players who'll also be thrown at Blake Griffin.
Blake Griffin said he doesn't have Jermaine O'Neal's number. They don't talk like that.
Blake Griffin said it's hard for him hate another basketball player.
The Warriors announced that they recalled Ognjen Kuzmic from Santa Cruz of the D-League.
After watching the "Bad Boys" documentary, Matt Barnes said: "I wish we could go back 20 years and play like that."
Rivers on Blake: "If he's flopping, keep doing it. Because those numbers look awfully good to me. Flop on."
Rivers: "We are a team that plays with emotion. And I think we should."
Matt Barnes: "After watching Bad Boys, I wish we could go back 20 years and play like that."
J.J. Redick said he's prepared to defend either Klay Thompson or Stephen Curry after chasing Ray Allen around for two past playoff series.
Redick: "If Klay guards Chris, Chris is going to be in about 4,200 pick-and-rolls. We want Klay to be in those P&Rs."
JJ Redick said the Clippers expect Andrew Bogut to play. "He's a tough guy."
J.J Redick said: "If Klay (Thompson) guards Chris (Paul), Chris is going to be in about 4,200 pick-and-rolls a game."
Blake Griffin said he's looking forward to playoffs at Oracle. Matt Barnes has been hyping the experience
Blake Griffin said he's excited to experience Oracle Arena in the playoffs, after hearing Matt Barnes' descriptions.
Asked about Jermaine O'Neal, Blake Griffin said, "I don't have his number, so I don't really talk to him."
Blake Griffin says he doesn't have Jermaine O'Neal's phone number.
All my fault obviously.
Yeah I sorta think my Aldon Smith/49ers reporting is holding up.
Too bad i can't help them anymore but i believe they can win it all!
Blake Griffin on Klay Thompson's flop-and-flail comments: "I think we're ready to play basketball, and it sounds like they are, too.
GSW vs. LAC -- Chris Paul on Steph Curry: "Their team knows that it goes as he goes. He's the head of the snake."

Reggie Miller: "I give the Warriors a chance (vs. the Clippers), because it’s a rivalry between these two teams. They hate one another."
