5:05 pm
caused a shortage. that forced the city to require all residents and businesses to cut their water used by 30% that's about 1.2 million gallons a day. this requirement could last for several days. it's very difficult pipe to fix its very old over 50 years, maybe 60 years old and we're working on fixing that right now by trying to bypass it and putting in a temporary fix activities such as car washing lawn, sprinkling, landscape watering or swimming pool filling. are prohibited. there's no danger in drinking the water, but in this situation , the pipe is buried under several layers of concrete with close by pipes and utility lines , which they do not want to interfere with. we don't have an exact timeline on when those long term fixes are going to be completed. water agencies a bar you've been asking for 10 to 15% reductions. to deal with the drought. but when you ask for 30% that's a very big ask. but
5:06 pm

5:09 pm
take a commanding lead in this series. i'm going to step aside and show you guys that's warming up right now. who is a very important person? that is the fact that he is out there playing right now we're going to talk a little bit more about why jordan's pool is such an integral part of this series. but first of all, there's a real anomaly when it comes to this series. and that is the fact that they played three games. and in all three games, someone has been ejected from the game and it started in game one. brandon clarke, hard foul by draymond green. this was ruled to be a flagrant too. and draymond left the game as a result, then the same thing happened again in game two, except this one was a lot more fragrant gary payton, the second going up for a lamp for the first warrior points that the game he was hammered to the ground by dillon brooks. this was ruled a flagrant two as well. brooks was not around for the end of this game, and he was suspended a game as a result. and then in game three of this series, it was kyle anderson, who got double technicals and was also not around at the end.
5:10 pm
but that is not the thing that people are really talking about when it comes to game three, and that was jama rant. the star memphis player who was fouled by jordan's pool late in the game. moran to left the game after it appeared that pool made inadvertent contact with his knee. maybe injured his knee actually earlier in the game, but there was a lot of talk about that moran tweeted that he had broken the code talking about jordan pool and that was referenced to what steve kerr said all the way back in game two, when peyton was knocked to the ground, but either way, morant is not expected to be playing tonight. but steve kerr knows that. that will not influence how the warriors play . the grizzlies are very good team with or without moran. memphis went 20 and five without him, um they're a #### of a team for a reason. they're really deep. so um, well, it may change. ah a scheme or two terms of how we're guarding. um, it doesn't change our respect for
5:11 pm
what they're capable of. um so we, um will be prepared either way. and you're getting a look at dillon brooks now who made his first public comments today and said that he was not a dirty player and actually apologize for that hit on gary payton the second, but after his one game suspension, he's out here for the first time tonight since that suspension, so here we go. we can expect nothing except a motion for this game. desperation time for the grizzlies. the warriors know that if they can go up three games to one, they'll have a stranglehold on this series, and this has been an emotional physical series already. we can expect it to be cranked up a notch tonight. no question about it. reporting live from san francisco. i'm joe fonzi back to you guys in the studio someone other than staff, clay or even jordan. paul who do you think steps up tonight to have a big effect? big impact here on game four. well you know, it's interesting. we're waiting to hear what steve kerr is lineup. it's you know, if you recall
5:12 pm
back in game three started jonathan commingle earlier in this series, he started gary payton the second, so i think the kind of wild card is who steve kerr decides to go within his starting lineup. jordan's bulls come off the bench. he had a great game last game coming off the bench. he's gone with that three guard lineup some of the time, so you know, i think the nice thing about the warriors is that they are so balanced. we haven't even talked about andrew wiggins, who has the ability to heat it up as well. so the warriors are very diverse, and i think the biggest key is to see who steve kerr decides to put in the starting lineup because he loves to play that match up game. very balanced. indeed alright, let's go get the w joe fonzi there. the chase center joe. thank you. if they area police departments want to beef up their equipment, they will need local lawmakers to sign off coming up tonight at 5 30. we're taking a look at the new approval process, vladimir putin doubling down on his reason for invading ukraine, but some are noting it's what putin didn't say that we should be paying attention to and whether
