On improving the Kings roster for next season, Vivek Ranadive said Pete D'Alessandro & Vlade Divac have their work cut out for them.
Kings owner Vivek Ranadive still openly admires what the Warriors have done. Very much believes Kings are not that far away. Wore Kings polo
Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is very put-off by trade rumors with DeMarcus Cousins, especially since he signed him. No desire to trade him
Won't see this often: Anthony Davis loses his footing, slips, Draymond Green helps him up as teammates take off in transition
Just spoke with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive during halftime. Will share video of interview shortly, but very interesting off-camera comments
6-1 Warriors run to start 2nd half
Multiple touches in multiple quadrants of the floor is an under appreciated stress on the defense
Steph Curry and the Warriors storm back to lead Pelicans at halftime 55-52. Curry with a 3 in closing seconds, has 16pts. Anthony Davis 14
Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive Courtside watching his old Warriors team tonight. Appears to be wearing purple instead of yellow/gold
Perhaps Anthony Davis did figure something out in the second half of game 1 because he's still rolling with 14 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists
Leandro Barbosa is taking over this 2nd quarter for the Warriors. The Brazilian Blur has still got it. 10pts early in Game 2
Pelicans are up 37-32, 7:26 left in the second quarter
Norris Cole looking like Cleveland State Norris Cole
Tremendous job by the Warriors bench to pull within 4 forcing a Pelicans timeout. As if it were possible for Oracle to get anymore amped up
Now Barbosa is looking like Phoenix Barbosa
Impressive opening quarter by Pels. Forcing Warriors into difficult shots, too many jumpers. Attacking rim at the other end. Lead 28-17.
Pelicans lead 29-17 after 1. Impressive strt from Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis, each 11pts. Warriors shooting under 32%
And still the Brazilian Blur....
Despite Eric Gordon's hot start with 11pts, Anthony Davis picking right up where he left off in the 4th of game 1. Only against Bogut now
That Norris Cole pickup by New Orleans was a great move at the deadline.
Eric Gordon is out here looking like L.A. Clippers Eric Gordon
Much different first quarter for New Orleans this time around. Started 11-4 run but that quickly evaporated
So enough about crowd noise. None of these larger buildings compare with old Boston Gaden, Chicago Stadium. Fans would drown out anthem
In all seriousness, Mychal Thompson applauds Kings hire. Vlade's smart," Thompson added. "He's going to be terrific. I have no doubts."
Mychal Thompson - father of Klay - joked about his ex-Laker teammate and new Kings VP. "Vlade (Divac) thinks he's the Serbian Jerry West."
Tyreke Evans wrapped up his pregame routine. Looked OK, buried his only halfcourt attempt and ran to locker room. He'll play
Pelicans head coach Monty Williams says Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday remain game time decisions tonight for Game 2
Monty Williams said the comments were tongue in cheek. Thought it would be taken as a compliment
Monty Williams says he didn't mean to insult Warriors fans or Joe Lacob over noise concern comments he made earlier today
Someone brought brownies into the newsroom today. Considering today is 4/20, we may have a very interesting 6pm newscast.
Toronto guard Lou Williams wins Sixth Man of the Year. Isaiah Thomas is second. Jamal Crawford third
Tyreke Evans listed as questionable for Game 2 vs. Warriors, but told media today, he'd be a game-time decision.
Beno Udrih and the Memphis Grizzlies.
Need to see Aldridge challenge that dunk even if they are down big.
DeMarcus Cousins has officially gone fishing. http://t.co/zd0GWkNNQ3
Things have gone a little sideways in the A’s game. Ventura tossed for beaning Lawrie. Benches clear.
Takeaway from Warriors Game 1 win. -Players not too concerned with giving up leads -Players amused by Steph Curry flexing as much as fans
Warriors take Game 1, a little closer than they would have liked. 106-99 F.

The rout is on at Oracle. Warriors now lead 69-46 leading to New Orleans timeout.
Anthony Davis with 4th foul. Just 1 rebound to go with his 13pts, 3 blocks and 4 turnovers

Leandro Barbosa's layin waived off, after the horn. Warriors halftime lead is 59-41
19 first quarter points for Steph Curry, putting on a show at Oracle. Finds Barbosa to best the halftime buzzer. Warriors lead 61-41
When Steph Curry flexes 😂😂😂😂
Pelicans really settle for a lot of long jumpers, just inside the 3pt arc.
Technical stands after review, no flagrant issued. Pelicans have battled back cutting Warriors lead to 5 just moments ago
Quincy Pondexter issued a technical, shoved Draymond Green after fighting for position. Officials review, looks like Pondexter went to face
New Orleans shooting 23.8% in opening quarter to this playoff series
