and to communicate. and, ask dana for money more than 20 something times. >> reporter: he provided the cell phone records of the text messages between the two. and in a lie detecter test, he passed. stubblefield's attorneys say the timing of this rape charge a year after the encounter is very suspicious and nothing more than a political move because the da would like to run for attorney general. now, today, the da released a statement that reads in part that they will present evidence in a court of law and they expect stubblefield will be held accountable for his crime. live in san jose, betty yu, kpix5. the 49ers are playing hardball tonight. they say they have no choice but to go to arbitration over a rent fight with the city of santa clara. both sides agree the team would pay $24 million a year for the first two years. after that, the rent was supposed to be based on how much money the stadium is
bringing in. with things going well, the 9ers want it lowered to 20 million a year. the city wants its $24 million. it is important the rent amount combined with other revenue sources be enough to cover operating costs. the warriors kept us on the edge of our seats tonight. all the way until the bitter end. tonight, fans are celebrating again. this was the scene outside oracle arena about 40 minutes ago. christin ayers is there right now. christin, this one was so close. >> reporter: oh my god, it was a nail biter. really tight all throughout the game. the warriors now up two games to zero after a nail biter and a late fourth quarter comeback. some fans telling me they held their breath throughout the game. they were excited to see that the team could pull it off without curry, but they are ready to have their mvp back. >> go warriors! >> reporter: going in tonight, even with the star player on the bench, warriors fans were optimistic. >> we're going to win.
>> they will be great even though steph curry will be on the bench. >> reporter: some even suggesting mvp steph curry's absence had been a good thing for the team. >> they are getting better because curry is gone. because other players are getting the confidence to shoot. so, when he comes back, everybody will feel even stronger about taking that shot. >> reporter: this could be curry's last game on the bench during the playoffs. and tonight, the team struggled without him. fans told us they are ready to have their star player back. >> we are ready for the knee to be fixed and ready to go. >> we are a better team with him. >> we needs to come back and get a little practice. >> they can do without him, but he needs to come back. >> reporter: fans already looking ahead to the next round. they think the warriors already have this in the bag. curry could come back as early as the next game. that would be saturday. back in portland. liz? >> he certainly was chomping at the bit on that bench. he just really wanted to be out

based union bank and they couldn't access their accounts at atms or online. their debit cards were frozen. >> it was kind of upsetting to us that we didn't get a phone call or an e-mail from them saying that they were having issues. and, worse yet, if we had been, like at safeway or something else, we wouldn't have been able to pay for anything because our account was at zero. >> bank officials say during a routine back office update, they experienced a delay of overnight processing that affected various systems. we have reached out to union bank asking if they will cover any late fees for the customers. so far, we have yet to hear back. >> that has to be the scariest thing in the world to health care your balance and there is nothing there. >> oh. that's the worst. >> thanks veronica. well, tonight, the oakland police department is apologizing for an insensitive tweet about cinco de mayo and salty margaritas.
the message was to warn people against drunk driving. they said the celebration had become synonymous with fiestas and salty margaritas which would be a recipe for disasters. >> this is where the police lack sensitivity. today, there is a lack of trust. >> the department quickly backtracked calling the original message "completely insensitive." old navy is not apologizing tonight after catching some heat from some people for a new ad featuring a happy family. a happy interracial family. kpix5's cate caugurian shows us. >> reporter: old navy posted this picture to promote a sale the twitter verse thought as pushing an agenda. >> diversity is the new normal. >> reporter: it shows an interracial couple with their kid. >> interration is what is making the advertisement more viewable. >> they were trying to appeal to the generation we are in now. >> reporter: based on the internet's response, the

are most infected and how we can prevent that infection. >> reporter: time is of the essence. >> we are going to be in quite a fight. >> reporter: today, 4 # countries in more than 2 billion people are now at risk and the threat is coming here. the outbreak is expected to spread throughout most of the americas by the end of this year. in the news room, allen martin, kpix5. >> but experts believe that we won't see a pandemic or widespread transmission of the virus in the united states. but, there may be some localized outbreaks. okay. so, is there anything you can do to reduce your risk of infection? and we have that answer on cbssf.com. switching gears, paul, it is possible to see a little rain in the future? >> tomorrow is bike or walk day. so not tomorrow morning. millions of kids will be heading out walking to school and the weather should cooperate. low to mid 50s , cloudy skies. we are in the 60s now in a few
spots. 65 in concord. the cool spots are santa rosa and san francisco in the mid 50s . livermore, 53. walking or biking to work or school. in santa rosa tomorrow, 50. and san francisco, a low of 54 degrees. not only are we talking a low pressure area. but a low pressure area cut off from the jet stream. computer forecast models do their best work as things move along at a predicted path. we can see that with the storm tracker. you get a low like this separated from the jet stream like an eddy in a pool of water, we have this low pressure area which can kind of do whatever it wants and typically does what computer models don't think it will do. so this guy is going to sit off the california coastline feeding in unstable air and giving us a rain chance in may for three consecutive days. we know the rain chance window is wednesday, thursday, friday. which day will be the wettest? the jury is still out. it is predicting a few showers wednesday. a few more showers or thunderstorms on thursday.
and, more widespread showers coming up on friday. if i had to make a guess at which one it is going to be, i would say friday. though there is a rain chance starting tomorrow lasting all the way through the end of this week. so we are staying unsettled the next three dais. there will be clearing for mom's day. mother's day looking good and dry. cooler cloudier, that's the guarantee. scattered showers are possible. fremont, 67. vallejo, 68. san rafael, 67 degrees. scattered showers thursday and friday. we will dry out for the weekend. not terribly warm. much warmer, much sunnier, monday and tuesday of next week. that is weather. time for sports. hello dennis. >> reporter: we are live at oracle tonight. can the warriors overcome a 17 point deficit? highlights and reaction next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
>> and dennis o'donnell has tonight's sports report from oracle arena. dennis? >> reporter: yeah, i tell you what, i think the blazers look like a completely different team than the one that got whacked by the warriors here on sunday. that was until the fourth quarter. that is when klay thompson, had
37 in game one. cold much of the first half tonight. oakland's damian lillard on fire. he shot from deep. beat the buzzer. 11-point portland lead. klay hit the shots when it mattered. knocked one from the corner to tie the game. he nails it from the wing. the joint was jumping. warriors go on top 94-93. thompson, 27 point to go with five threes. and then, they play defense. mason plumlee in the paint. the warriors win 110-99. azele didn't even play in game one. >> he stayed ready. i'm really proud of him. because he hasn't played much lately. in the houston series, he didn't get much of a flow going when he was out there. so, this was a good response. >> earlier today, after shoot- around, i walked to the weight room, he was in there doing
cat stuff... is it possible luck is gone??? 1st period, predat >> the predators mascot clearly sick of the black cat stuff. is it possible the luck is gone for the sharks? they probably want this one back. marleau glides into the net. a weber slap shot. that draws iron and went in. predators win 4-1. but the sharks still lead the series 2- 1. baseball, jeff struck out five reds in eightennings. but not satisfied at the plate. tomlinson drives in a bunt. giants win 3-1. they will go for the sweep tomorrow. what's the deal with sonny gray? shelved in the last two starts against detroit. served up two more shots to the
mariners this evening. one by martin, the other by cano. kyle seger added another one. seattle wins big over sonny gray and the as . here at oracle, the warriors win. now goes to portland. we will be back in a moment. ,, when josh atkins books at laquinta.com. he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so you know what he gives? i'll give you everything i've got and then some. he gives a hundred and ten percent! i'm confident this 10% can boost your market share. feel me lois? i'm feeling you.
see you tomorrow morning. >> good game. >> highlights. >> stephen: hey, dakota johnson, thank you so much for being here. >> hi, stephen. >> stephen: i'm really looking forward to your new movie "a bigger splash." >> thank you. >> stephen: it must be so fun to work with tomming hanks. >> what do you mean? >> stephen: "a bigger splash." it's a sequel to big and splash where tom hanks wishes to be a mermaid and learns a lesson about love. >> no, this one is actually sort of a gripping drama that's sort of erotic. >> stephen: yeah, yeah. gripping, erotic drama, tom hanks. >> no, it's about a rock star played by tilde squintop and she her ex-boyfriend ray fines comes to see her
