With five games remaining in the regular season, the Golden State Warriors are on the brink of another milestone.

Over the next week, Stephen Curry and Co. look to eclipse the record for wins set in the regular season by reaching 73 victories and surpassing the mark set by the Chicago Bulls in 1995-96.

Bay Area News Group columnist Marcus Thompson breaks down GSW’s last five games and explains why this record is all but in the bag for the Warriors.


Mark Jackson once again makes reference to Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob in sermon

By Diamond Leung

Mark Jackson continues to reference Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob in his sermons, with the latest mention coming 10 months after his firing.

“I had a joy when I was coaching,” Jackson said Sunday in recorded comments to his congregation at True Love Worship Center International in Reseda, where he is an ordained minister. “I had a joy when I got fired. The owner of the Golden State Warriors was baffled when I left the meeting, shook his hand and smiled. I said, ‘I’m praying for you.’ He looked at me like I just cussed him out. All I said was, ‘I’m praying for you.’

“There are folks in this world that cannot comprehend or understand the peace that you have…”

Lacob, who declined comment through a team spokesman, was previously a topic in Jackson’s sermon in December. Lacob had apologized for critical comments about Jackson that he made at a venture capitalists luncheon days earlier.

Jackson told the congregation Lacob “put me on blast” and “said I was good for nothing, an owner that knew me for three years and spent a couple of minutes around me, an owner that had the audacity to say that 200 folks don’t like me in the business.”

A current ESPN broadcaster, Jackson twice worked games at Oracle Arena since his firing, including two weeks ago when the league-leading Warriors beat the Los Angeles Clippers.

“I did say hello to him briefly the other night when he was there – waved to him, really,” Lacob told Mercury News columnist Tim Kawakami later that week on a podcast. “We didn’t get a chance to talk. Mark, we wish him the best. He’s obviously a very successful broadcaster. Probably will wind up coaching again at some point, and I’m sure he’ll do a good job.”
