8:49 am

8:50 am
numbers monday and we'll stay that way tuesday and wednesday, 60s and 70s. then maybe some rain next weekend. i always look to the extended and then it doesn't happen. so here we go again. >> we'll just hope for the best. lisa, thank you. turning now to sports, the golden state warriors back home today to take on the knicks. but last night in denver they were down five of their minor mall rotation players. collin rush is here with that outcome in this morning's sports report. good morning. steve curr taking a page from the book of popavich resting clay thompson and andrew bogan. andre igadella also given the definition off. the definition of lumber. we are in march but in need of some rest for the rest of us. getting some run and taking advantage. look at this. justin halladay led the warriors from deep.
