The Golden State Warriors are getting another chance to take down the Oklahoma City Thunder at Oracle Arena.

ABC7 News was at the team's practice facility on Thursday in Oakland, and so was civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson.


"The Warriors are such excellent role models for the community, and they give a certain joy in this place and it's a pleasure to watch," he said.

Steph Curry participated in the shoot around and started Thursday's game tonight. Andre Iguodala was listed as questionable.

A win would make it 44 straight regular season home wins for the Dubs. That would tie an NBA record.


Tip-off was 7:30 p.m. at Oracle.
