9:01 am
controversy. forget j.r. smith running out the clock at the end of the game. let's focus in on -- >> count them in case you didn't realize it that was a three. >> a message to the cavs. steph curry in the final seconds of the half they may get the victory in game one. >> that was a big lapse. you know he can hit the shots. >> the first shot he made was a three-pointer. >> heck of a start to the finals. glued to the television i'm sure. >> definitely. >> heart pounding game. tough go to sleep after that. >> that's the other problem. warriors lead the nba finals 1- zip after beating the cavs in the overtime game. the score was 124-114. warriors had the lead in the fourth but lebron james, give
9:02 am
them credit, they fought back. lebron had 51 points. the cavs could not get the ball to him when the game was tied in the final seconds of regulation. >> rebound to the cavs he brings it out. shot blocked. >> that is the ball game. these the play everyone is talking about since last night. j.r. smith of the cavs got the rebound but tried to run out the clock. he ran way from the basket instead of making a play. it's as if he was unaware that the game was tied. he believed he had the lead. that was all the warriors needed. 124-114. after the game j.r. smith trying to explain what happened there at the end of regulation and lebron james asked about the whole situation
9:03 am
and he got tired of those questions. >> you knew you were tied. >> i knew we were tied. i thought they were going to call time out because i got the rebound. >> in the replay it looked like you said take lebron i thought we were ahead. >> i thought we were ahead. clearly that wasn't the case. >> i knew it was a tie game. we were down one. george hill went up, made the first one. we got the offensive rebound and i thought we were all the way. that's my view. i don't know what j.r. was thinking. i don't know the question you are trying to ask. >> do you know if he knew the score? >> thank you. >> with that lebron james left. he was done with the interview. both teams get a couple of days off then game 2 of the nba finals will be played sunday
9:04 am
night at oracle. >> he was done but fans were excited. ee is at oracle arena with more on what fans are saying about the game. >> reporter: i tried to talk to a fan this morning who lost his voice because he said he was screaming so much during the last seconds of regulation. warrior fans are feeling confident. there is a huge shift in momentum. a missed opportunity for the cavs became the golden opportunity for the warriors. some don't think that the cavs can come back from such a heart- breaking loss. the cavs coach said they were robbed. >> oh, man. i had a smile from here to here and woke up feeling like we got three more wins to go. >> it was a thrilling game. i think the referees was able to take the replay and come to
9:05 am
the right decision. i feel bad because it appears as though the cleveland fans had their hearts snatched out of them. i don't think we will be able to resuscitate them and there is no hope for their future. >> i thought it was a good game. lebron had 50 something points. smith had a bone head move at the end of the game. he didn't know what was going on. >> you got to know the score. you have to know your time. if he put it back up, durant would have fouled him, two more chances. sunday it's over. it will be like redemption. the warriors and the cavs face off again on warriors ground sunday at oracle arena. live in oakland, ee, elisa
9:06 am
harrington. warriors got punched in the face and took it but they punched back and one. >> you need a little luck to win the finals. everybody would agree that they got a little luck at oracle. not only with the reverse call, the charge -- >> let's talk about that. 36 left in the game. >> yeah, 37 and -- >> lebron has the ball -- >> katie has the ball. >> he says he is planted. here is the thing about that call and here is the beef that the cavs had. the refs aren't supposed to review it unless it's close to the restricted area. >> that is the debate. >> that was the debate. if he is clearly outside of the circle they aren't supposed to review it. >> i don't know what the refs can see. >> that's what tyrone was upset about. you see lebron did move, leaned in. after they reviewed the call it
9:07 am
was the right call. >> what he -- >> he was not set. the gripe is why are you reviewing the call when it was clearly outside that circle area. but, listen, once they made the call and it got reversed, katie hit two free throws. warriors get a ten point win. >> the thing that i noticed off the bat was the refs were going to let them play. they are not calling a lot. then toward the end it started. but it changes the game, right? >> at the very end of the game -- sometimes when you let teams play and you don't call -- not tiki tack but closer calls, you start -- tempers heat up. after the game you saw the flare-up at the end as well with tristan thompson. that was because they took a shot late in the game and didn't like it. there is an unwritten rule when you are up by 10 with 20 ticks left you don't shoot the ball.
9:08 am
i think the chippiness comes with four straight finals with these two teams. clay said in the locker room there is a lot of animosity here. we meet them every june. >> with a lot on the line. >> especially the way that game ended. >> and the way they made the mistakes. the cavs knew they had the game. what is your take on jr smith getting the rebound, great play. could have easily put it up for two points after he got it but dribbles away. >> he claims and i'm not sure i believe j.r. but he claims he dribbled out because he saw kevin durant, he thought he would block the shot. but when you get a rebound and the game is tied and you are right under the basic. >> you have to get a shot -- under the basket. >> you have to get a shot. >> i think he is trying to save face -- is he trying to save
9:09 am
face arguing that he knew the score. >> not only that, if you want to call time out, why are you waiting for lebron. maybe at the very least if he goes back up with the shot he gets fouled. george hill by the way missed the second free throw, another semi lucky break for the warriors. he is a 90% shooter. >> you don't think he missed it on purpose. >> no. unless he had money on the game. >> how deflating, that game and the way they let it slip away. how deflating for the cavs moving forward. >> it's a blow. they will rally around that block charged call. they will look at this, we got jobbed. that shouldn't have happened. if that call isn't reversed, we probably walk away with the win. >> what about clay. i love that he is smiling.
9:10 am
that is rare. but his injury. >> it sucked the life out of oracle. the whole arena went quiet. it was one of those moments where you think how quick these things can change. warriors are a huge favorite. everybody things they will role in four, five games and one of your best players goes down. it looked bad. clay is one tough guy. >> the crowd loved it when he came out. >> you were there. >> it was a big burst of emotion. he came in in the 4th quarter and hit the big three-pointer. he said after the game once he got an extra and found out it was negative, it became a pain tolerance thing. there was no way that would keep him out. >> nba finals, jason, thank you. sunday, 5:00 oracle. game 3 and 4 wednesday and friday in cleveland. 5, 6 and 7 would be played into
9:11 am
the second week of june alternating between oakland and cleveland. game 7 will be in oakland if that happens. up next, school shooting officials are comparing columbine to one that may have been prevented in the city of san ramon. the tip that ended with police arresting a student. >> we are days away from the election. a closer look at the local measures that people are talking about. will change that. mahall tuck tuck turned around struggling schools, raising graduation rates over 60%. marshall tuck for state superintendent. marshall tuck.

9:33 am
opened fire at columbine in colorado killing 12 students and one teacher. since that day there were a number of school shootings across the country. now the "new york times" is reporting that much of what is happening can be traced back to columbine with followers known as columbiners. i am joined via skype by a "new york times" correspondent based in denver. good morning. >> hi, mike, thanks for having me. >> in your piece you talk about the teenage gunman in santa fe, texas, how there was similar clothing, weapons used to those responsible for columbine. is columbine the model for what we are seeing today. >> so, i actually -- i live in denver and i spent quite a bit of time getting to know some of the people who were involved with the initial attack in
9:34 am
1999. i think in talking to them it is astounding because many of them never quite realized that we would be speaking about this 20 years later. i spoke to the principal in 1999 at the school when the attack happened and went on to work there for another 15 years or so. and even he had said that he believes this has become the model for the other schools. he travels the country trying to help schools dealing with this very thinghe as well as other people were astounded by the fact that it has become the model. >> it's not -- are we talking about an ideology here? >> i think in ways, yes. i think that the young men, because the vast majority of cases, it's young men that plan
9:35 am
and carry out these attacks are not only attracted to the idea of destruction but are specifically interested in the thoughts and feelings of the two young men that carried out the attack in 1999 and study what it is. i think they feel that these two young men in some ways represent the same frustrations that they have with their current environment. >> when we look at the shootings taking place today compared to columbine in 1999 -- i remember columbine very well. i was in colorado on that particular day, social media wasn't around, you know. i'm trying to think why are we seeing more and more of these in recent years. maybe social media is one reason. what are the other reasons that you think we are seeing these more frequently.
9:36 am
>> the 19899 -- 1999 took place when the competitive 24-7 news was taking route. those images were rooted in people's mind. i remember where i was and seeing the images. then immediately this take off on social media. so all of these imagery and journals of these gunman have been able to sort of proliferate throughout society. i spoke at length with klebold, the mother of one of the gunmen, she sees this contagion. she attributed social media as one of the reasons that her son's terrible legacy has lived on.
9:37 am
>> you talk about the news cycle. when it comes to the parkland school shooting, the alleged gunman had a video released of him talking. in it he says it's going to be a big event. when you see me on the news, you will all know who i am. so, my question is, regard willing us in the news media, how much of a role are we playing in this and do we need to change things when it comes to coverage of school shootings? >> sure. i think that a lot of people that i spoke with for this piece and a lot of people that i spoke with for many of these stories -- i was in parkland after that attack, many people have pointed to the role of the media. i think that all of us in society are asking how do we inspect the story line with the rigor that it deserves. these are terrible things
9:38 am
happening while not participating in the glory identification. i think that the "new york times" has taken the position where a lot of it is about tone. we will name the gunmen. we have taken that stance. but it's important to explore their identities and what was going on with them so we as a society can identify gaps that are allowing these things to happen. in this particular piece, we didn't name any of the gunmen because we felt that the focus, the tone of this story should be on the phenomenon as opposed to the individual roles that these -- the individual identities of these young men. i think that all of us as a society are asking the questions and worthy of inspection and all of us have the responsibility to take the right town and be responsible. >> very interesting. julie, thank you for your time.
9:39 am
have a great weekend. >> thanks so much. you too. a top aide to kim jong-un is expected to arrive at the white house to present a letter to president trump from the north korean leader. it's unclear what it will say, it comes after the north korean official met with secretary of state mike pompeo in new york. the trump administration is in the final planning stages of the possible summit between president trump and kim jong-un in singapore. >> reporter: officials are scrambling to keep the north korea summit on track. high level talks are taking place in the demilitarized zone. they are reviving hopes for a merger of north and south. >> public opinion will decide whether a mode of reconciliation or confrontation is created. >> i believe there is no problem we cannot solve together.

9:44 am
street from the main hospital building and the sheriff says deputies never searched that building. >> we are looking to see who was responsible. >> security badge access to the power plant building was disabled at that time to make it easier for vendors and others to get in but that security has been restored. this morning we are hearing from the chief of the san jose police department, eddie garcia. he is talking about the success that the city had with getting guns off the streets. he credits every day patrol officers going the extra mile. >> they are going above and beyond making investigative stops on individuals that turned out to have firearms. a lot of them stolen out of this city or other cities. frankly each one of those firearms that we take off the b responsible for a shooting,
