7:20 am
the finals with a kick to the face. and it's on to game two. for the second part of the series, the warriors said hello to an old friend, steve kerr. he turned to the bench after missing time for complications from back surgery. the team made him feel right at home. klay thompson broke out of a play-off shooting slump. k-d, did k-d type things and curry put lebron through the spin cycle.

ready to hold a trophy yet cleveland wouldn't die that easily. the cavs were within three in the fourth quarter, but the m-v-p's wouldn't let the game get any closer. once again, durant stayed on the war-path to his first title. ripping off 39 points and sealing his case for finals m-v-p. and steph chipped in 34 of his own. put on the finishing touches and then it was all over. the golden state warriors. your world champions for the second time in three years. and with four all-stars under the age of 30, it doesn't look like the champagne will stop flowing anytime soon. and this golden dynasty is just

9:14 am
9:15 am
(mark)(darya) taking a look overhead . good morning. getting readyfor the big parade just 45 minutes away. you can seefrom our helicopter shot that everybody is already assembled and waiting and this is the entered of the route where they have the big rally. >> that's right. it's a mess,the traffic, city streets, freeway, people are still trying to get there into downtown oakland right now. >> yeah, so, i mean, if you had to choose and you wanted to leave now because you could get there. >> yeah. >> and if you do you can walk and probably find a spot it's just the traffic. did youbattle the traffic what
9:16 am
would you think right now. >> bart i'd park at the nearest station but some of the lots are full so depends where you're coming from. do not get off at lake merit. hop on bart maybe get off at 12th street, 19th, walk off find a nice spot to watch the parade. look at thislong line of traffic trying to get to downtown. >> don't do that. >> no, you'll be frustrated and upset and not so happy >> a good thing a lot of skipping work to watch the parade. >> it helps the rest of the area. it's lighter than usual in some spots because everybody is in downtown oakland. but thedrive times for the nimitz have not been so good because some of those major ramps leading into downtown oakland like broadway and oak street and jackson, they're closed, you can't get on or off the freeway there. that's why it's extra slow. so55 minutes, major delays on the nimitz.
9:17 am
i've been suggesting 580 all morning west because look at that it's only 26 minutes compared to that drive on the nimitz freeway. that's how you save some time. if tough get to work if today is a regular day for you will be sitting in traffic in san francisco backed up beyond west grand but it's quiet. 25 minutes. no other big hot spots or mainly issues. it'sslow on the san mateo bridge. richmond bridge still backed up too but no big trouble spots into the north bay. one moreincident south 680, an accident blocking one lane so it's backed up well beyond 237. . >> all right. thank you. . continuing with your forecast now we're looking at pretty nice conditions again the sun has been out all morning long. and it's been clear. so we've been able to see the sun just fine and it's going to warm us up nicely. here's alook at your parade
9:18 am
forecast. there's the victory parade getting underway at 10:00 this morning. looking at mid-60swith a slight breeze coming from the ocean. 12:15 or so they're expecting that's when the parade will end and will start the speeches right at the shore line to lake merit. at that point inthe low 70s, but still very comfortable. make sure youdrink plenty of water though. here's where temperatures are right now. we've seen a steady increase in temperatures and more of the yellow taking over. we've got 66 in napa, 65 currently in livermore and those numbers will continue to climb until for the east bay valleys we get to the upper 80s. as we head into tomorrow we could be looking at 20 degrees above average for this time of year. upper 80s in the north bay low 80s in south bay and looking for a mix of low to mid-70s along the bay shore line. the wide picture which we can see here from the satellite perspective has relatively clear conditions over the san
9:19 am
francisco bay area for sure but much of the state high pressure sitting overhead. what doesthat mean? well, calm stableair clouds are gone. nothingbut sunshine, and we're going to sit and cook for the next few days. actually a little morethan that. here's your 3-dayoutlook. you can see the steady rise in temperatures for the inland valleys today as we work towards the week ends. tripledigit weather on the horizon and looks like it could last beyond this weekend. we'll have fulldetails on that coming up in a bit. >> it's giant like an orange basketball the sunshine. >> it is. with a blue sky around it. >> all the warriors fans gathered and mark live right now with more coverage. . >> good morning. great day indowntown oakland. we're at thecorner of 19th and harrison and in the 30 minutes since we last spoke the crowd has filled up even more. let's take a look. hundreds, hundreds of people, by the time the parade is in
