good morning, everyone. we're taking a live look outside from our camera along the san francisco waterfront this morning. you can see kind of hard to tell, but it's a little cloudy out there this morning over this part of the bay area. we'll get a check of the full accuweather forecast from meteorologist lisa argen in just a little bit. in sports, the sharks are back in action tonight, but they may be shorthanded. brett burns is questionable for the game against the blackhawks with the flu. burns hasn't missed a game in more than five seasons. the sharks face chicago at s.a.p. center. the puck drops at 7:00 p.m. warriors will be back in action tuesday night at oracle arena against the celtics. last night, golden state battled the 76ers in the final game of a four-game road trip. abc7 sports director larry beil has the highlights in this morning's sports. good morning, everybody! yes, it was just a regular season game, but it felt a lot more important. the warriors came back from a 12-point halftime deficit in philly to beat the sixers and put a halt to a mini losing streak at two games. steve kerr a littleps, out with
6:45 am
a knee, and kevon looney. ben simmons here with the steal, went for a triple-double, 25 points, 15 rebounds, 11 assists. i'm not sure he took a shot outside of five feet in this game. steph curry missed 21 shots last game, much better in this one. oh, nice! high off the window, but an awkward fall, hit his head on the base of the basket. he's okay, but the sixers led by a dozen at the half. built it up to 14 points. the warriors go on a 16-0 run early in the third. damian lee, he had four 3s, 12 points. then demarcus cousins, then steph, and k.d. for 3 of his 34, and andre iguodala would add a three. the dubs were up three after three. big boogie inside! 25 points for him. mike scott, three of his six 3s came on the floor. he had the game of his life. sixers back on top.wanti. ansteph, jumper, splash. and then drives on j.j. redick.
6:46 am
oh, he's going to cook him. 11 of steph's 28 points come in the fourth quarter. warriors win it, 120-117. >> it was a just get it done however you can kind of game. the way the last two games have gone, definitely feels good for us to get on this long flight to go back home and have some smiles on our faces and feel good about ourselves. we obviously don't lose confidence in what we're about and what our goal is, but games like tonight are almost playoffesque, where you might nop play perfect, but you find out a way to win. >> gutted it out. we really got tested as a team from start to finish. that's an incredible team on the other end of that floor. but we got tested, so i think we needed this. we've kind of guess you could say in a slump these past couple games and not really playing the right way. but really came tether and took at winshad a year based on klay being out, loon being out and then having lost two
6:47 am
straight, you know, we're kind of in a little bit of a rut. so, this is what you need to dig out of it, you know. you've got to show the grit we did in the second half and our guys fought and they earned it. >> you can see how happy they were. college hoops final of the regular season for st. mary's, hosting number one gonzaga. jordan ford led the gales with 19. st. mary's a brief four-point lead, then the zags run away with it. brandon clark with authority on the hoop. gonzaga wins it and end the regular season 29-2. that's a wrap on morning sports. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beil. time now is 6:47. let's send it over to meteorologist lisa argen for a echaccuweaer forecast. >> hey, chrining toyou. nd me you can seero roof camera, and we will have those westerly winds today, but out ahead of our next storm system, you know there's another one coming in midweek. the winds will get breezy. but if you are headed out today, this morning, this afternoon, and you have to walk the dog,

6:50 am
skies tonight. but notice a couple areas of moisture that stand out to the then throughout the day, just very spotty, isolated, not much to write home about. in fact, we're just talking about maybe a couple hundredths here or there, if you get one of those heavier showers that hang over you, maybe a tenth of an inch up by clear lake. but other than that, just nuisance showers. 56 today san mateo and richmond as well as san rafael, bringing our storm impact scale for late tuesday into wednesday to a two. heavy rain in the north bay, a half inch to an inch and a half possible. and as we roll through monday and tuesday, here comes the rain by your tuesday evening commute, getting heavy in the north bay. everyone sees it for wednesday morning. wednesday afternoon. we dry out on thursday and we're looking at this focus to be central and southen california, but it's not going to leave us until it drops another inch to a third in the north bay, which certainly could cause some flooding. maybe a half inch redwood city. the accuweather seven-day forecast, light isolated shower today, one on our storm impact
