were so excited, but little over--amped. i thought you saw that come out in the course of the early play in this game. both sides had to be very nervous. no team has ever come from three gaming down to win a playoff series. houston trying to do it. good enough to put themselves in the final for the first time in four decades. i think jittery, would be the best way to describe both teams early. the warriors proved gritty enough to play through it on an off-shooting night. you see dwight howard get loose, everybody talked about the importance of getting off to a fast start. clay thompson the one guy who seemed to find a little bit of a rhythm, pops the three there before he ran into some foul trouble. more trouble with an injury, as you'll see in a moment. warriors up 6 at the half,
after trailing by 5 after 1. steph curry starts to get into the act. he wound up with 26 points, and they up the lead to 11 points in the early going of the 3rd. james harden becomes a major story. 13 turnovers, one of them leads to an andre iguodala open court dunk. the 13 turnovers, and nba playoff record. another frightening moment. trevor ariza, the same guy that steph fell over, overnight, knees clay thompson in the right temple. harrison barnes, ignites. rising to the occasion. barnes at one point, wound up with 24. you saw his outside shot. you see him go strong to the bucket, and 13 of his 24 come in the 4th quarter, and then the celebration, a nice moment there with james harden, 1-2 in the mvp balloting.

jump. we had to gut it out. the coach said at halftime, it was ugly, but i like our team better in ugly games than theirs. >> they really pushed us they're a great team. they're a great team. we stuck to our game plan, our coaches did a great job of bringing our game plans. we stuck to them, and we got the wins based on that. they're a great team, not taking anything away from them. >> reporter: the record is going to show the warriors won this series 4 games to 1, but every game was tight, with the exception of game 3 in houston. now, next up is the cleveland cavaliers. lebron james. the guys said we'll think about that maybe tomorrow, or the next day, but we're going to enjoy this one tonight. mark, back to you. >> can't blame them. coach kier was asked after the game, if he game planned at all
for the cleveland cavaliers. he said i haven't given it one moment of thought. good for him. what a blast out there. these guys were so keyed up before the game. you can just feel the excitement and the anxiety, and it showed. >> what a series. thanks mark, more in sports. >> our warriors coverage continues right now with ken wayne, live outside oracle arena, where fans have been wishing and wanting, are now celebrating. >> reporter: julie, are warriors fans happy? i think they are. the confetti came down after the game this evening. they waited a long, long time. 40 years for this moment. the warriors are finally going to the nba championship game. we talked to the fans inside and outside oracle about their reaction to this momentous
occasion. >> i wish i had season tickets to watch the whole thing evolve. we're late bloomers you know. >> reporter: you're on the bandwagon. >> yes, but to be here in this moment is absolutely amazing. >> it's been 40 years in the making. this is oakland's team. >> my first game ever. what an amazing game, right? >> this is what we've been waiting for, and finally we got it. you know what? this is history for us. we've been doing this for a long time. and finally we got it! this is the greatest feeling. >> reporter: as fans spill out of the arena tonight, fireworks exploded above other kl arena, a celebration of 40 years in the making to get the warriors back to the nba championship game. and they're all looking forward to it. and everybody is having a good

we'll see a lot more mid-70s out in livermore valley, and upper 70s. we'll see low 70s around the bay. there's the bay bridge. it's cloudy out there now. a lot of traffic on the bridge probably has a little bit to do with the a's game, and warriors game. there are high clouds that will bring us no rain. the fog right along the coast. that's sort of our plan, is high pressure building in. as we go into the next 24 hours, that sets us up with a warmer pattern. we've had drizzle really almost every morning, in some area along the coast for a while now. now we're setting up with more of a regular pattern, where we're going to be plenty warm during the daytime hours, with less drizzle, or less fog intrusion in the morning hours. you'll see that in the model. the plan is, high pressure is set up. as we head into thursday and friday, temperatures are going to start to peak. friday should be the warmest day of the week. as we head into the bay area
weekend, temperatures trend down. they're just going to be cooler than the mid-80s, that we're anticipating. so tomorrow, warmer than today by a good 5 degrees in many places. especially away from the coast. then on friday, the temperatures will warm further in the inland bay valley. san jose tomorrow, you make it to 74 degrees. 80 in st. helena. we had good wind. it's windy out there now. we've had wind gusts in the delta area to 35, and almost 40 miles per hour this evening. the airport is blowing pretty good. kind of a pattern, more typical for what you'd expect this time of year. still slightly cooler than what you might expect. 62 in san francisco. that's thursday's forecast. friday's forecast ratchet those numbers up another four or five degrees. the five-day forecast, a little warmer on thursday. warmer on friday. that's the warmest day, most likely. saturday, sunday, there's nothing wrong with those days.
they'll be fine. coastal areas have been cool. upper 50s, low 60s. just incremental changes. but i've been pointing out how texas has been getting our weather. it goes out there and explodes. as this system goes through, that should be the last one for us. we'll get a little bit of a break as we head toward the end of the weekend. texas. floyd mayweather, kanye west sitting court side, among those watching the warriors win tonight. >> lots of luminaries out there. lots of every day fans too waiting a long time for this to happen. either way, the rockets knew they were going to have to fly back to houston. the warriors just wanted to make sure it was a red eye flight, from crying over a series loss to them. maybe not the way golden state dreamed it up, but nobody is going to out-grit this team. they wanted to get out to a quick start, but it just didn't happen. houston inside for dwight
howard. they settled down a little bit. clay thompson found a little bit of a rhythm. wound up with 23 points, but battled foul trouble. warriors up 6 at the half, after trailing by 5 after 1. of course, steph curry had a little something to do with them regaining control of this. he pops the three. had 26 for the night. and upped the lead to 11 in the 3rd period. james harden, just a disastrous night for him. a record setting nba playoff, 13 turnovers. this one leads to an open court andre iguodala. he knows what to do with it. also played great defense. another frightening moment. trevor ariza, the same guy it was steph who fell over. this time knees clay thompson in the right temple. he left for a while. suffered an ear contusion. he's all right they say. harrison barnes took off from there. barnes rising to the occasion with a three. in fact, he hit 9 straight
warrior points at one point. 24 on the evening. 13 in the 4th, he goes for the muscle shot. nice moment there. number 1 and number 2 in the mvp balloting. steve kerr, his first year as coach, leads the warriors to the final. for harden, 14 points, 13 turnovers. the warriors got 31 points as a result of those turnovers. one week from tonight, lebron james and the cavs will come to town for game 1 of the nba final. plenty of time to size all of that stuff up. but stay in the moment, enjoy it. joe fonzi was out there all night with the celebration and locker room stuff. >> we talked about it in the pregame, how it was steph curry a little bit banged up. it would be nice if some of the other guys carried the load. in a night when clay had an offnight shooting from three- point range, just 3 of 11, it was the other guys. two guys specifically, who have
come of age in this playoff series. festus azila wound up with the playoff career high 12 points. as you mentioned, that phase where harrison barnes took over in the 4th quarter. the rockets were saying, somebody besides curry had to step up. afterward, the guys talking about something they talked about all year, what a well balanced team this is. >> you know, steph and clay. we try to fill in and be aggressive from there. whether that means scoring, whether that means making the extra pass, offensive rebounding. things like that. on a night like this, when i'm able to get a lot more shots, and make shots it feels good. >> it feels like we're the deepest team in the nba. it's been showing throughout the playoffs, not only tonight. andre stepped up. everybody who came in made an impact. not in clay's spot, but huge
off the bench. they stepped up for us, and made plays. that's what helped us get to this win. i know i was horrible. >> reporter: warrior fans have waited a long time for this. the franchise has waited a long time for this, mark, 40 years ago, you and i remember the last time the warriors were in the final. it will be nice to have them there again. joe fonzi, back to you. >> joe was in college and i was in elementary school. another bay area team we've got out on a roll. the giants know a little something about what it it takes to go the distance, and they're showing off all their attributes right now. a series sweep in milwaukee. sports part 2 next.
take you to milwaukee in a swinging mood there. ryan vogelsong, brandon belt with a nice play at the plate to get the out. the giants were down in the 5th inning, 1-0 to the brewers. joe panik, to right. a two run shot to right. the bullpen was perfect, they added another in the 9th to win it by a score of 3-1. the a's
tes. you're destroying those things. ay, jay, leave him alone. well, i'm sorry, but that cow has suffered long enough. fun. whoa, whoa, whoa, wait. hang on. dinner's ready in five minutes. coach wants us to practice lay-ups. they are deceptively hard. a curious mix of dance and strength. you're making it lame again. sorry. ay, dios mío, that coach. i hate that guy. he seems to have the kids motivated. oh, dad, you haven't seen him. he taunts the kids. he's abusive. if this was a colombian soccer league, long time ago, one of the kids would have taken that guy out and kkkhh! a coach is supposed to ride the kids hard. phil, help me out here. he's a mean man. oh, you're such a woman. come to the game. you'll see. this guy's a real mother-scratcher. pardon the language, gloria. mm-hmm. gloria? he better cool it, or i'm gonna introduce him to the captain and tennille.
