Marcus Thompson

Jackson brings back same five reserves ... meanwhile, Clippers bring Blake Griffin

Marcus Thompson

Difference so far has been at the line. Clippers have made 5 more FTs. Everything else about even

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 29, #Warriors 24 (end 1) Jamal Crawford banks in a 40-footer to close the first quarter.

Marcus Thompson

I called that as soon as Crawford shot it

Matt Steinmetz

David Lee exhausted. Missed games late in year, thrown into high intensity. Adrenaline gone.

Marcus Thompson

Clippers are 6 of 11 from the FT line. That's going to be something to watch this series

Marcus Thompson

Curry ties game with his first basket, a 3 off the pick and roll

Marcus Thompson

Iguodala to be replaced by Harrison Barnes after picking up his third foul

Rusty Simmons

Andre Iguodala picks up his third personal foul -- hitting Jamal Crawford on a three-point attempt.

Marcus Thompson

Warriors are going to attack Jamal Crawford on offense.

Marcus Thompson

Warriors survived initial onslaught ... Assuming Lee will play better and Curry will get going. Its enough to make Doc nervous, for sure

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 15, #Warriors 10 (5:05, 1st) Stephen Curry finally hit the Warriors' first FG at the 7:38 mark, and that ignited a 9-3 run.

Marcus Thompson

Curry with a beautiful outlet pass to Iguodala for a dunk. Clippers timeout, lead down to 15-10

Tim Kawakami

Can already tell I'll be doing a lot of blocking today. Calm down or just read somebody else.

Marcus Thompson

Warriors small with Lee at center. DeAndre Jordan stays in game (with Blake on the bench)

Tim Kawakami

Curry vs. the World already, I would say.

Marcus Thompson

Warriors move Curry off the ball, make CP3 chase him

Tim Kawakami

Lee is checking back in, Jermaine O'Neal out.

Tim Kawakami

My wi-fi connection is on pace with the Warriors, so I might not be checking in very much from here.

Tim Kawakami

Thought this game might start a little slowly because of 12:30 tip. I was correct but only for one team.

Rusty Simmons

#Clippers 12, #Warriors 1 (7:49, 1st) The Warriors are 0-for-8 from the floor and have committed four turnovers.

Tim Kawakami

Warriors looking stunned by Clippers' aggression on both sides. GSW currently 0 for 8 with 4 turnovers. Down 12-1.

Marcus Thompson

And there is the first lob ... Warriors 0-for 8 from the field ... Mark Jackson takes another timeout

Marcus Thompson

Klay won't get more open than his last one ... he's 0-for-3

Marcus Thompson

O'Neal has drawn two fouls on Blake Griffin ... Blake forced to come out with 8:46 in first

Rusty Simmons

Blake Griffin joins Andre Iguodala with two early personal fouls.

Marcus Thompson

Mark Jackson calls a timeout after 7-0 Clippers run to start game

Marcus Thompson

David Lee isn't ready to play

Rusty Simmons

We've barely played two minutes, and David Lee has three turnovers, and Andre Iguodala has two personal fouls.

Rusty Simmons

Three Warriors possessions, three David Lee turnovers.

Tim Kawakami

Tried to send out a photo of the near-courtside view, apparently it's stuck in Twitter-verse. My apologies if it appears randomly.

Rusty Simmons

Game 1, GSW vs. LAC starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Lee, O'Neal; LAC -- Paul, Redick, Barnes, Griffin, Jordan. Out: Bogut/Ezeli.

I picked Draymond Green-Matt Barnes as the likeliest first skirmish. A new pregame add: David Lee is very, VERY amped up for this.

Center Andrew Bogut (rib) was in too much pain to travel with the Warriors for Game 1 of their first-round series against the Clippers.

Stephen Curry is an elite player now. Chris Paul gets some of the blame bit.ly/1r7wBib

Sorry. Prematurely pressed send

Tim Kawakami

For those asking why Bogut's not with the team in LA--Mark Jackson says he was in a lot of pain after yesterday's practice in Oakland.

Tim Kawakami

Chapel update: Mark Jackson, Steve Blake, Chris Paul and a few other Clippers were all in the group chapel together just now.

Diamond Leung

Nemanja Nedovic (calf) said he won't dress after originally getting hurt in Game 2 of Santa Cruz playoffs vs. Los Angeles D-Fenders.

Tim Kawakami

In case anybody is wondering: Andrew Bogut didn't fly with the team to LA. He's. not here. He's not playing

Marcus Thompson

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

Matt Steinmetz

Loving that Warriors now playing in games big enough to warrant meeting up with buddies to watch. Especially minutes after noon!

Rusty Simmons

Festus Ezeli (knee) isn't close to playing in a game, according to Warriors head coach Mark Jackson.

Marcus Thompson

Jackson said Festus won't be playing anytime soon. Guarantee it won't stop people from asking me though

Rusty Simmons

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.

Marcus Thompson

Jermaine O'Neal will start and Draymond Green will play a lot, Mark Jackson said

Diamond Leung

Mark Jackson: "We're in battle."

Matt Steinmetz

Bottom line, though, is as long as there are two 3-point arcs painted on the court, the Warriors have chance.

Matt Steinmetz

I just can't get around that Warriors go into series without high-quality player in Bogut. Teams close but that's a hurter.

Matt Steinmetz

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?

One thing that has been emphasized to me recently: Warriors management has made no decision on Mark Jackson's future, up or down.

Blake Griffin said he doesn't have Jermaine O'Neal's number. They don't talk like that.

Also will be surprises at the end of each quarter... If you can't hang out just order a pizza to go and tell them I sent you #DubNation
