i think our guys persevered through a lot of stuff. we were not as good as i would have liked earlier on, but i think we have always known what we wanted to be, but it takes time to do that. our guys got better through adversity, and i think it is easy to see how we want to win games when you watch the tape. larry: we don't often see the warriors melt down like they did last night, losing to the pacers. blowing defensive assignments down the stretch. clearly the worst loss of the year. they don't have much time to worry because tip-off against houston is a few minutes away. last nights overtime loss would deplete indiana's team. frustrating for everybody, including steph curry. a rare display of anger for number 30. then the defensive breakdown by s holiday to get the game-tying shot. they fell right there. afterwards, stafsteph owned up o

mistakes. >> j holliday made a good cut and made a shot. i was a step too slow. tried to guard the inbounds and i got caught looking. that is where us as players have to keep each other accountable to the little things we can control. you cannot control missing or making shots, but you can control execution. kind of where we are at tonight. larry: the warriors recen retired president with wells tonight at chase center. it was retired alongside alongse for other greats. it is a big part of three warriors titles during his tenure, also led the construction at chase center. >> explaining to my friends, especially on the east coast, why it is a good thing i was being put in the ground at chase center. it requires a little explanation. >> key is actually in the hall

of fame, the real one, literally . this is kind of a small thing compared to that, but that tells you how immensely credible and what a great guy this is an all the things he has done. >> to have my name alongside some of the greatest players in the history of the game is a special. larry: bears hall of famer dick butkus has started a podcast. he is joining twitter, tweeting today, it has been over an hour since i have been verified. i do not understand why the sponsorship money is not in the account yet. when he started trending, he says, now that i am trending, it is not because i am dead. butkus is 79 years old, still going strong. a lot of people in the audience never saw him play. but deacon jones, another legend, said every time butkus hit you, he tried to put you in the cemetery, not the hospital. that is what dick butkus was like as a player. dan: i loved watching him play.

thanks, larry. dion: tonight at 8:00, it is "shark tank," followed by "20/ 20" at 9:00, and do not miss abc news at 11:00. a reminder, you can watch all of our newscasts lived on demand through the abc 7 bay area connected at. -- app. dan: finally tonight, a few thoughts on what really matters. an important part of the vitality and verve of the bay area is at a tipping point. one of those things we might not fully appreciate until it is gone, or at least fundamentally changed. as the eye team reported site, restaurants across the bay area, or the ones that survived the initial wave of the pandemic, are teetering once again. they cannot withstand much more and stay open. they are hemorrhaging money, losing their leases and struggling to place workers who have moved on during this time of covid.

the i team analyzed cell phone location data from tech company safe graph for a better understanding about the impact of covid on the restaurant industry. that data tracks foot traffic and estimates visits to restaurants all across the state. the numbers have recovered somewhat since the early stages of the pandemic. then came omicron. tough times for restaurants getting tougher once again. what really matters, let's support them as best we can. we will miss them when they are gone. i always love to hear from you. let me know what you think. follow me on twitter and facebook. dion: so well said, and all it takes is one meal every so often. dan: that is a good point. dion: that is it for this edition of abc 7 news. dan: we appreciate your time. have a nice evening.
