The DeBartolo Family Foundation Gala is tonight in Tampa. Harbaugh was invited, can't come. I wonder if Denise, John and Jed are attending.

The Warriors pranked Festus Ezeli, showing him a fake press release claiming a six-game punishment and including a quote from GM Bob Myers.
Steve Kerr said he'd like to rest Andrew Bogut on Sunday at Boston, but the team is waiting to hear if Festus Ezeli will be suspended.
Dwane Casey said he started Patrick Patterson to give the Raptors an offensive punch going up against Draymond Green.
Dwane Casey: "That was just a good old-fashioned woodshed butt-kicking."
Duane Casey on loss to Warriors: "That was just a good, old-fashioned, woodshed butt-kicking."
Steve Kerr: "I told the referees I was taking a vow of silence tonight, and I did."
Kerr lost his voice Thursday, so "I told the referees that I was taking a vow of silence tonight. I did not say one word to the officials."
Festus Ezeli on Tyler Hansbrough tussle: "He kind of got in my face, and that’s not something I should bother myself with."
Festus Ezeli on Tyler Hansbrough getting in his face: "It's not something I should bother myself with, somebody like that."
Big Warriors victory tonight. Doesn't erase the Cleveland loss, but this is a tougher GSW team than we've seen in years.
Holiday is so shaky he even gets pulled from garbage time. Yikes.
We went from Hansbrough being a "knucklehead" to "Festus initiated it."
Ezeli and Hansbrough ejected.
Ezeli is going to get tossed, too, I would think.
Festus Ezeli and Tyler Hansbrough get into it. The Toronto fans cheer for the first time since pregame introductions.
Raptor mascot grabbing stuffed animals by the throat is terrifying.
Raptors down by 39. Fans going nuts because they're throwing Year of the Goat stuffed animals into the stands.
Raptors seemingly played game like it was pick-up game they thought was against inferior team. No clue what was coming.
Tyler Hansbrough has been in the game one minute, 49 seconds, and he's already hurt Andrew Bogut.
Dwane Casey with the hockey line sub to make a statement.
I must admit, I do sometimes enjoy when Warriors expose other teams -- the other team's roster, coaching and front office. Well done, GSW.
Staggering how much better the Warriors' roster is compared with Toronto's. Not even remotely close.
Warriors out-everythinged Raptors in that half. Every single facet ... they won, including effort. Raps wholly unimpressive.
Toronto at the half: 12 turnovers, 12 fouls... 9 baskets.
Raptors starters have zero assists.
God bless Jim Barnett.
The Warriors' bench is shooting 0-for-8.
Holiday is out of control. Game is too fast for him right now.
Toronto went 1-for-15 in the fourth quarter of a game at Indy in 2012 ... and won.
Drake also not in his courtside seat. It's Friday night, so can't go 0 to 100 real quick. (I'll stop).
The Raptors finally made a second field goal, and Steve Kerr has seen enough. He quickly calls for a timeout.
Warriors call 20-second timeout after Raptors make second field goal to make it 2 for 21.
Drake's team went from 0 to 1 for 19.
Toronto: 1 for 19 for the quarter. That is hard to believe, though I did see a Warriors team go 0-for-a-quarter long ago.
Raptors 1 for 19 from the field.
Draymond Green picked up a tech while bent over with his hands on his knees while awaiting a Lou Williams free-throw attempt.
Draymond Green with another technical.
Raptors fans have something to cheer for as Chinese New Year Kit Kats being handed out by cheerleaders.
Ezeli subs in ahead of Speights/Lee, Holiday ahead of Barbosa...
Toronto shooting seven percent from the field with six turnovers.
Now, Justin Holiday into the game. This is the second game of a back-to-back set for the Warriors.
Festus Ezeli is about to get some run.
The only games that count are the ones against LeBron James at his best?
The Warriors remembered that they're the best defense in the league. The Raptors are 1-for-8, and I don't know how they made that one.
This is the Warriors D that got them to the best record in the league.
Stephen Curry doesn't have summer legs tonight.
The Air Canada Centre cheers for Stephen Curry like he's suiting up for the Raptors.
GSW at TOR starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; TOR -- Lowry, DeRozan, Johnson, Patterson, Valanciunas. Out: Iguodala.
Seemed like Salvatore grabbed Kerr's arm, then motioned for him to come back here, basically. Love my refs, but Salvatore can't do that.
Saw replay of S.Kerr's jacket take-off, etc. He was hot, no doubt, but B.Salvatore grabs Kerr's arm as he walked away. A no-no any league.
The best thing for me is knowing they had to list to my interview with Harbaugh... and still hate me every millisecond. Sorry, pals!
Steve Kerr said he might rest Andrew Bogut for the Boston game. It depends on how much he plays tonight and how he feels on the off day.
When Steve Kerr saw the two dozen reporters awaiting his pregame news conference, he said: "What is this? Is Steph Curry about to talk?"
Easiest blocks of all-time: Michigan fans STILL furious at me. Your guy talks to me. You still hate me. Oh well.
Andre Iguodala resting tonight
Steve Kerr said Andre Iguodala (rest) will not play tonight.
Casey on Draymond: "When we talked about him on draft night, the term 3-pt shooter didn't come up, but he's made himself a great shooter."
Casey: "Steph Curry is one of the best passers I've seen since Pistol Pete."
Toronto head coach Dwane Casey: "Curry, once he gets in the gym, he's in his range."
