coverage at oracle... and we start with mark carpenter who has a pregame report the warriors have a chance to lock up the title tonight, but this is probably the only team in all of sports where being up 3-1 brings some anxiety. the circumstances...very similar to last year as the series comes back to oakland with the cavs trying for an historic rally. let's show you some of the video from practice... both teams were at the warriors facility in downtown oakland. and the reason we are at this point is because of a bizarre game 4. where the cavs had 50-points in the first quarter. made a finals record 24-threes. there was also so much drama... you had kd vs lebron. a fan getting ejected.. and draymond green nearly got tossed as there was some confusion with technical fouls. é "the past is the past. it's definitely fueled us all year, just trying to
keep that hunger to get back to this stage, but we understand we're one win away from getting the job done and, you know, we have a chance to write our own story this year, so this is gonna be a fun night, and just keep a clear focus on what's going on in the present, for sure." the warriors have an opportunity to be the first team since the 1974 athletics to win a title in the bay area. so we'll see if the fireworks and champagne go off tonight... otherwise, the series goes back to cleveland for game 6 ( catherine ) it certainly has been a while since a bay area team has celebrated a championship at home.( steve ) and we can't forget, the warriors had the opportuniry twice last year but came up short. kron 4's alecia reid is at oracle as well.. she caught up to some fans who could be witnesses to history.

( catherine ) fire season is here in the bay area... officially starting at the end of may.( steve ) while we have yet to see any major wildfires... there is new information tonight on the impact the smoke has on our environment... and the climate. grant lodes is here to explain what scientists found. ( grant ) there are some theories that a wildfire can be a good thing for nature... clearing out old trees and shrubs and allowing for new growth to come in. but when it comes to our atmosphere... it is a much different story. researchers with nasa and georgia tech have made a rather alarming discovery.
wildfires put out a lot more brown carbon particles than previously thought. those particles rise high into the atmosphere and can interfere with the sun's rays. this could cause air to cool down or warm up... changing our climate. but scientists have not been able to pindown the exact effect of brown particles... other than to suggest the smoke from wildfires could have a lingering impact on our planet. at this point, they need to do more research to determine the effect... and if anything can be done to stop it. so just one more thing to think about when we see wildfires... not only can they do damage on the ground... but high up in the air as well... potentially altering our climate. catherine.
