>> announcer: now abc 7 sports with larry beil. good evening. game two of the bay bridge series is going to get underway in a few minutes. they are waiting out the rain. drew has staked his reputation on the forecast. much like the giants roster, oracle not ready over the
6:53 pm
ballpark. the new gigantic video screen which they are still testing out. the giants say it will be ready for the home opener on april against tampa bay. who will play in the outfield is a mystery because they didn't do much to bolster the roster in the off season. one night after being crushed at home by the mavericks, the warriors flip the switch again last night and bounce back with a win over detroit led by steph curry. he had a night of rest and the offense was obismal. only four 3's. and last night he went for 26 and kevin durant took only six shots all game but did rack up 11 assists. and a 121-114 victory that moved them back into first place by half a game. and deciding to dish instead of swish and broke out post game humor. >> i'm a well-rounded player and i could still affect the game
6:54 pm
without taking a bunch of shots. i thought i passed the ball well and i know you used to put me in the box as a player but i've grown. >> he's like you, individual. marcus thompson used to put me in a box so i had to let you know, i'm just kind of well versed, you know what i'm saying. well rounded as a human. you know what i mean. >> [ inaudible question ]. >> you did write about that. i appreciate that. my bad. i was talking to the guy next to you then. >> nice to see him having fun. cal needs a new basketball coach after firing viking jones and the lakers may soon need a new coach because they're expected to ax luke walton. jason kid linked to both jobs. he started at cal before going on to hall of fame nba career coached for 4.5 seasons in the nba with the nets and bucs. so-so, combined record of 183 wins 190 losses. coaching the lakers would be more glamorous and lucrative but a lot of guys will be in line
6:55 pm
for that possibility. cal are at rock bottom with wins and attendance both way down. and frankly not all that appealing of a job. kidd was on espn the jump today and made it a point not to tip his hand. >> i'm going to be patient in this process. but what luke has done in l.a. with the injuries and everything that has gone on, i think he's done an incredible job and they have a coach. and so we'll wait until the season is over to see what opportunities come about and hopefully there is one that fits. >> speaking of cal, lindsay gottlieb and the bears visiting baylor and lady bears. early on, smith using the screen and gets the roll on the three. nice bounce there. 10-10 game. smith steal coast to coast. a little hesitation move and pullup and cal was hanging in against the number one seed and things started to go downhill quickly like right here. khloe jackson, 46-27 baylor has
6:56 pm
opened up that lead at the half. and now it is officially official, the nfl approved the raiders lease to play in the coliseum for the 2019 league season and approving the lease deal with the provision that the raiders could play the 2020 season in oakland as well if the new stadium in vegas is not quite complete. so all parties that needed to sign off on this, they have done so. and meanwhile oakland lawsuit against the team and nfl will continue. let's enjoy nature at the valspar championship and an osprey catches a fish and tries to fly away and this guy springs into action and picks up the fish and takes him back to the water. so fishy has been saved -- look at the guy with a cell phone getting the shot of the savior and the good samaritan. it is the circle of life, everybody. their fishy is alive. >> thanks, larry. join us tonight at 10:00 on kofi. boeing is testing the 737 and
6:57 pm
using real pilots to see if it works and what they found so far. >> and at 11:00, piles and piles of trash next to busy 80 in berkeley. why cleaning it up isn't as easy as you think. >> more for you later but this is this edition of abc 7 news but for breaking news whenever you like on the abc 7 news app. we appreciate your time. i'm dan ashley and i'm ama daetz. for everyone out there at santa cruz beach boardwalk -- >> say, look out. >> thanks for being here.
