are draped in a gold shirt. it is the first from the warriors have been to the finals 2018.in dion: without further ado, let's kick things off with sports director larry beil at chase center. dan: i know it is still calm over there but you have to have a sense of anticipation and the excitement to come. larry: i'm not calm. [laughter] i'm freaking out inside. fortunately, i don't have to play, so we don't have to worry about that. we spent five years covering the warriors in the finals winning three out of five. k.d. left, klay got hurt, they had two years where they bottomed out. suddenly they are back in the finals. typically, that is not the way it works in the nba. it takes a lot to rebuild. talking about roster construction.
steph curry calls them the old heads. he's talking about himself, andrea good dollar, klay, tray, but also the new kids on the block like jordan poole.. and a pair of 19-year-old, trying to soak all this up. somehow the warriors have made this work. here they are in the nba finals for the sixth time in eight years. >> every year is its own year end journey. appreciating that journey and actually going through it. not doing all you can to get around and thinking we will just get back there. just appreciating the journey and going through it. feeling the ups and downs. >> to be back for sixth time is incredible. it is incredible just saying that. i never thought it would be a possibility in my rookie year.
it is just great. i will enjoy every second of this. play as hard as i can. walk away with no regrets. >> the celtics, obviously their first time at this level. from the first time you made the finals, is there something that surprised you, something you were not prepared for that you wished you had known about at this level? >> me, i'm not going to give it away right now. larry: steph curry, he is thinking about that question for a second. i'm telling them nothing. meanwhile, the celtics come in here, no member of this boston roster has ever played in an nba finals so big advantage for the warriors from experience standpoint. also from an injury standpoint, both teams a little bit banged up. reporter: the celtics went seven
games, about a week off. that will be huge as the warriors look to get andre, otto porter junior and gary payton off to a good start. they did a scrimmage so that is a good sign. the warriors will need everything they can get. larry: you did a one-on-one interview yesterday with gary payton. i keep trying to read the tea leaves or figure out, we have a few more boxes to check because he's coming back from a broken . toi plaold me? reporter: i kind of think he might play. he had a bit of a smirk when he was talking. i actually he does play, maybe 5 minutes. larry: we don't have cia training but we will see what happens. give me a quick prediction. >> i have the warriors in five. larry: i have my warriors and seven but my taxi driver says
warriors in six. so 5, 6, or seven. i have to say i'm having a flashback. i have not seen the countdown clock in a few years. here we go, 1:26 and counting. one hour and 26 minutes away. we have the pregame show coming up. i asked if he wanted to come up but i think he would've rather make money and drive. dan: we are going to have a fun night. thank you both. just a blast the next few days. thank you. dion: we do want to remind everybody, we are livestreaming larry and chris in the pregame show. then join us again for after the game, all of it on the bay area, livestreaming 24/7. dan:dan: you know fans are pumped. let's continue with reporter
j.r. stone. dion: he's all decked out in his warriors throwback jacket. give us an idea. the fans must be aesthetic. reporter:reporter: we talk about the countdown clock but the party is already on here. you know it is a big game when magic johnson walks by you and hall of famer magic just walked by moments ago. outside all the bigwigs, you can see it is all dubs fans with some celtics fans sprinkled here and there. here's what they had to say about tonight's big game. >> it's only going to take three games to win the series. the third game, we will beat them so bad that they are going to forfeit. >> we will definitely give the two at home. we might give boston one. >> on days like this, do you get
like a buy one get one free? >> don't we wish? [laughter] no but it's worth the price of admission. >> how do you define expensive? >> four digits. over $1000. >> i've been up until 3:30 in the morning. abc 7 news >> we will take it all. that's all i have to say. >> you saw that little dog that was ready to go. you can see the stage ready to go. the fans waiting to get into chase center. they will be loud. at least that's what they say. the sun is out, the band is playing, no complaints whatsoever outside of the nba finals here. back to you. dan: does not get much better than this. good night. dion: there is no question
tonight's game is the hottest ticket in history at chase center. not even close. check out this breakdown from secondary market. i'm choked up at these prices. the average ticket price is $873. courtside seats tonight are going for $44,000 each. how can you wrap your head around that? the highest for a warriors game before this was $543 against the lakers in february. the third-highest was $418 for game five against dallas in the western conference finals. experts say prices will only go up. >> with game one being thursday compared to game two sunday, sunday is more extant -- expensive. the dynamics somewhat dictates the pricing. if there's a home game where the warriors could win, you know what will happen. there's a crazy premium.
dion: he says if you are hunting for a ticket to a finals game, where the price on most secondary sites will be much higher because you have to add taxes and fees. dan: tipoff is at 6:00 p.m. so fans still have plenty of time to get to the game. sky 7 checking on traffic conditions. moving along nicely as we zoom in and you can get a sense of what things look like. the cars lined up a little bit but it is moving nicely. once you get there, you have to pay for parking of course. that is not cheap. this lot is going for $70. latte at oracle park which is a bit of a walk from chase center. other parking spots farther away are cheaper but still cost $40. public transit is recommended. game tickets function as muni tickets, giving fans rides all
day long. the san francisco bay ferry is running. about half a mile from chase center. there are plenty of ways to get to thrive city and chase center. i hope you take advantage of that. a lot of people of course will be standing outside, watching on the big screens. let's bring in mike nicco. mike: let me show you the temperature. if we could only have pricing and the lots, you would save $10 because it is only 60 degrees. we have a brisk wind. about 12 to 25 miles per hour. my best advice for you is dress like you're going to a giants game. almost the exact same temperatures you would have this time of year just up the street at oracle. here's a look at the nba finals forecast. sunshine in and out of the clouds but it will not be the winds that will keep you around 60 and dropping to around 57
degrees by the time the game ends and they get their first win of four on the way to their fourth championship with these players. it will be pretty nice out there. exactly what we would expect. instead of giants gear, you have the worriers gear that will be plenty warm for you. dan: thank you. dion: one very big boston celtics fan is looking to sweeten the stakes for any doughnut shop owner in the bay area. maria del dios is owner of kane's doughnuts, one of the most beloved shops in the area. full discloser, she is my husband's aunt. [laughter] she wants to issue a challenge, a wager, her business going doughnut for doughnut against the bay area's best. so far, no takers. >> so if the celtics lost, i would send them a dozen of hours.
but we know that is not happening. we were hoping to try some donuts from your area, but nobody wanted to do it. i don't get it. dion:dion: her accent is hilarious. she is showing some special donuts. a special edition green and white doughnut to honor the eastern conference champs. if anybody has a doughnut shop and wants to participate, let us know. dan: how fun. that is cool. one of the hottest items are some special steph curry shoes. the team store received a shipment of hard-to-find we believe edition made by under armor. it features the famous colors and logo from the we believe era and is highly sought after. >> they showed a picture of them years ago and just never released them for sale yet. then i saw them on the under armour site a few weeks ago. all of them were sold out except really small and really large. dan: we believe was the motto
that really stuck with the beloved 2007 warriors team that pulled off one of the biggest upsets in nba playoff history. there is a last-minute change with the abc broadcast team. . play-by-play announcer mike breen and game analyst jeff van gundy are both out for game one with covid unfortunately. that's according to multiple reports. former warriors head coach mark jackson is ok and will call the game with mark jones who is filling in. dion: once again, nba finals coverage officially starts at 5:00 p.m. with the w's on seven pregame show. then it is the countdown at 5:30. . game one tips off at 6:00. don't forget, catch jimmy kimmel live game night at 10:00 and abc7news starts early at 10:30. dan: a great evening here but we have a lot more news here on abc 7 at 4:00. did you feel it?

of doing something like this to her. reporter: after months of searching for their daughter, the family of alexis gabe finally has answers. oakley police say an arrest warrant was issued for marshall curtis jones, the ex-boyfriend. he was charged for the murderer of the young oakley woman who disappeared. >> marshall curtis jones, a 20 seven-year-old male and resident of antioch, killed alexis at his home on or about january 26, 2022. reporter: but the oakley police chief says jones, who is now living in washington state, was killed by seattle officers as they attempted to arrest him. >> we didn't want him dead. we wanted him arrested to pay for his sins. we wanted to meet with him face-to-face. we wanted to look him in the eyes and ask him why. ask him where is alexis? reporter: police say they still
not have located alexis's body, but after examining large amounts of digital and frantic analysis -- forensic analysis, there's enough to connect jones to the murder. >> we have surveillance footage, cell phone data, dna evidence. reporter: jones was reportedly the last person alexis saw before her disappearance, despite the mounting evidence linking jones to the crime, chief beard says it took months to peace to gave the the data before they arrest warrant could be issued. we understand the >> depth of the impact >> but we are still determined to continue with the investigation. reporter: the family says despite this news, this is not closure. before there is closurreporter:g up that fight. >> we are not giving up the fight. she will remain alive in our hearts until we find her. >> we will continue to find her. we want her back. reporter: abc 7 news.

each case be thoroughly investigated with integrity, with respect to the families, with respect to the victims. reporter: the families say they are questioning the da investigations into their loved ones deaths because of what they call a bad copy and paste job. antonio lopez was killed in 2014 in an officer-involved shooting. the da report found the officers were justified. the report listed the legal reasons they used took him to that conclusion sang apart that the courts cannot laskin officer to hold fire to ascertain whether lopez will in fact injure an officer. that same paragraph later appeared in three other reports in later years. those reports involve different men in different investigations, copying and pasting without taking guzman lopez's name out. >> the least this shows is negligence. it shows that our loved ones
