9:01 am
looking at a live and foggy picture. that's san francisco back there, believe it or not, it is overcast june gloom. this usually happens at this time, if you lived here for a while. it's no surprise today. the golden state warriors meet the boston celtics at chase center for the first game of the nba finals. and if you're hoping to go to the game, you'll need to pay a lot to get their tonight's average ticket is going for $873. most of those younger those cheap, i say cheaper. tickets are for upper bowl. if you're looking for a cheaper alternative, though you can watch the game of chase, but you can do that for the away games. the wires can watch games three and four. inside chase. welcome to the nine have been wonder who the people are who sit courtside other than celebrities of right, wasn't she was there? yeah, that's what i like and what's not any of us price for that break away. yeah
9:02 am
that's pretty cool. i would love to get just a chance to sit there just to see what it was like to watch the game so close up will never happen at that price. yeah i mean, there was an awful lot of warriors buzz happening all across the whole. yeah everyone's talking about it right now. everyone's looking forward first. game first nba finals. we played a chasing her. that's a that's an awesome thing to be doing. all right? i think a magus was the lucky one to get the assignment through the straw the right one. wherever you watch the game, it's going to be a great one. let's turn it over to ktvu emma gosper what she found inside chase center. i'm sitting in one of the priciest seats you can find at chase center. it was listed this morning on stubhub from more than $64,000. it's being sold as a pair. just multiply that amount by two, according to ticket website vivid seats. tonight's game also has the most expensive average ticket price for any event at chase center. that average price close to $900 when least expensive to get we found on stubhub, including fees
9:03 am
was going for $771. it's a momentous game to be at for one. it's the first time ever than nba finals game will be played at chase center since it opened in 2019. the warriors started the season strong in november. they are the best record in the league. injuries challenged them throughout the season, steph curry suffered a sprained ligament and bone bruise in his foot back in march, playing against the celtics and was out for 12 games of the regular season. he spoke at a press conference yesterday about the ups and downs of the season. you ride that momentum, and that obviously cares you through some crazy, uh ups and downs throughout the season with injuries and revolving door, the rotation and all that, but and also speaks to no. that's the tablet word. the culture of our organization like it speaks to who we are. and um, what it takes to win at the highest level said it's still questionable if gary payton, the second otto porter jr and andre equal dollar are able to play
9:04 am
tonight. all three are recovering from injuries but managed to participate in yesterday's scrimmage. but it was a good sign that all three were able to have contact today for tonight's game is at six o'clock reporting from chase center demagogues. ktvu fox two news. all right. a lot of warriors fans obviously excited. tonight's the night we brought in my good friend matt steinmetz to talk about the first finals at chase, which i mean, a lot of people thought that the you know the words when they got to chase would be you know kind of past their prime that the warriors would not see a finals at chase that they had left their glory days back at oracle arena in oakland, but here we are. i mean, it's pretty amazing what they've done, sal. there's only been four teams that have had a run of six finals appearances in eight years. there was a lot of concern whether the warriors could thread the needle using a lot of young players. jordan's pool commingle moody, um even wise men who didn't play this year and whether there would be
9:05 am
enough time to, you know, keep the older guys in play still in their prime, and they've managed to do it, they managed to get to the finals. lot of people didn't expect it. but now that i think they're here, i think a lot of warrior fans think they can get this done. the boston celtics. you know, i think that a lot of the casual fans may not know some of the names on that team. you know, they kind of watched the warriors they haven't seen too much of the celtics. who are the warriors going to be planning for? who are the big players on that team? they have three guys kind of like the warriors have their three guys. they got marcus smart jason tatum. and jalen brown, who went to cal, actually, and they're they're all three very good defensive players, especially marcus smart. he was the defensive player of the year. he's going to be guarding curry a lot of the time and they hope what the celtics hope, anyway. is that marcus smart kind of by himself can keep curry under control because the warriors are at their best when other teams try to take the ball out of steph curry's hands and they
9:06 am
succeed succeed in doing that, and then they get to play four on three. so the celtics are hoping they can match up with the warriors, man to man and play them that way, but that's you know, that's a tall task is different from this. it seems as if that the celtics have three players. that the warriors have to plan for, but dallas honestly had one. memphis had one right. even though the teams are good, they wouldn't get there. but this team has three and they have great defense. doesn't that stymie the warriors? i don't know about if it's stymies the warriors, but the one thing that you write about is jam around for memphis and don trick for dallas. if i asked him a lot of people who is the second best player in each of those teams, they would say. somebody different each time because there's no real number to boston's got what i call a pecking order. it's tatum. it's brown. it's smart, and they know exactly where they're going to go when they're going to go there. and i think the one key
9:07 am
sal is and the warriors are like this to a little bit with draymond is their best players are also good defensive players and when you have that that means it sets a positive tone, and that's kind of what the warriors have always had with draymond green singularly, but also with clay thompson has been a very good defender in his day. wiggins is a good defender, and even steph curry has gotten a lot better. you know, this is a big spectacle. i don't think people appreciate what a big spectacle this is. one of the warriors were in the nba finals the first time i was lucky enough to get out there on the press, and there's so many people everywhere in the world coming to see this, right? yeah i don't think people appreciate how big of a deal the stages. no i mean, there's literally hundreds and hundreds of media who are in the bay area and another way to tell that it's very important. at least in the bay is you have a guy like me on the news portion of the of the program, which means it's sports and real life has intersected sports and a block exactly
9:08 am
exactly reserved for the giants in the world series and 49ers in the super bowl and warriors in the finals time. it's 95 7 the game. have a good show. thanks for coming in problem. gentlemen. thank you. that were wildfire coverage. firefighters are making progress in their fight against the old fire in napa. alvira says favorable weather conditions help cruz get a better handle on the flames. the 570 acre fire that sparked near the old soda canyon road area. on tuesday is now 30% contained. one firefighter did get hurt and was taken to the hospital for a minor injury. there are no reports of any damaged structures in that area. and of course, the weather, as we've been talking about, certainly will be helping the situation. steve paul's is here now, with more on that they have some good news. now. the wind never good news, but at least it's more westerly or west southwest. higher humidity and temperature is starting to come down, although near the side there's a little east southeast at six humidity, those 64% temperature 61. it will not be as hot as yesterday. but there's a pretty good seabreeze kicking
9:09 am
of the napa airport as a west southwest at nine fairfield now west southwest 22. almost gusting to 30, so an onshore breeze and higher humidity will help firefighters going forward over the next few days. and maybe even some rain. i mean, they could use it today or tomorrow it looks likely on sunday. and a possibility. i mean again, it's just in the minor details now. but up around santa rosa russian river you can there's possibility north of a half inch or more, much less as you go south now. today low clouds are already on the coast . there's a mix of us and iron clouds coming in some sun. that would be the pattern today and probably most of tomorrow but 60 seventies coast in bay some upper fifties for a few on the course as well. those water temps were just so called mainly mid eighties inland, but not as hot as yesterday. still though, you're seeing some upper sixties to near 70 already, but we are running a little cooler from especially coast and bay. because of their low cloud deck , and i mean, it has really banked up and you can see a lot of low clouds, even moving through the petaluma gap with higher clouds up above that so
9:10 am
higher humidity levels and more of an onshore breeze sure beats clear skies hot temperatures in an offshore breeze. that's for sure a lot of systems are going to rotate around that low and the gulf of alaska and it's actually tapping into some pretty good moisture will get drizzled friday night saturday morning than the leading edge of that system. looks like it starts to arrive santa rosa sunday morning. petaluma maybe napa fairfield conquered the rest. it will be coming in a little bit later. but you can see some of the totals so far. now again, these will change. they always change about every 12 24 hours, but totals of a third of an inch to two thirds from santa rosa. to uk is really impressive for this time of year. san francisco to concord, 18. 100 san jose 1000.8. that's why it looks right now we'll see what they say on friday and saturday 60 seventies eighties inland temps will come way down tomorrow. then we'll cloud it up. and maybe it looks like rain on saturday morning, you guys, steve. thank you. oakland a's fans looking for a done deal when it comes to building a new ballpark at howard terminal. next on the nine. you just spoke with mayor chef here in studio what she says about a major presentation happening today on the environmental impact. of a

9:15 am
current record that's building trust in the community. the federal oversight will end and the city's police commission takes over on may 31st of next year over to the south bay. the san jose city council has been directed to take a look at how police investigate alleged misconduct by officers or any city employee during a joint meeting of the rules and open government committee yesterday, members voted to send the item to the san jose city council for consideration. the council meets june 21st to discuss the measure. mayor sam liccardo believes there needs to be changed following two high profile incidents involving misconduct by city employees. local police say they will have a significant update on the alexis cape case in the next two hours or so. game is a 24 year old oakley woman who was last seen in january at the home of a former boyfriend in any stock. her car was found abandoned with the keys inside the following day, a reward fund for the information in the case stands at $100,000, the oakley police chief, expected to have that update at 11 o'clock. a verdict has been reached in the closely
9:16 am
watched defamation case by actor johnny depp against his ex wife, amber heard the jury ruled in favor of death, awarding him $10 million in compensatory damages . five million in punitive damages. the jury awarded heard two million in compensatory damages. this trial was about much more than money for the millions who watched the proceedings live. let's talk about the impact the trial and the outcome may have on domestic violence, survivors and those in abusive relationships who have yet to seek help we welcome to the nine leah kimball price, head of bay area women against rape. thanks for being with us. so happy to be here. garcia i've heard from people in your field that what we all watched unfold online and on tv is going to have a chilling effect on people experiencing domestic violence. what are your thoughts? absolutely i think that, uh, whenever we see something so important and so serious, kind of turned into more of a media event and something that is, uh common topic on social media is
9:17 am
going to have repercussions in a ripple effect, and we're definitely seeing that on our hotline. we're seeing that with our, um survivor clients seeing that i'm across the board that male survivors are coming forward more and using our services. we serve all genders. um but we're also seeing a lot of people saying i don't want to speak out because i'm afraid of being ridiculed or becoming a meme on social media because a lot of people were judging very quickly from the get go. they thought they knew for sure it was johnny depp. amber heard who was in the right here. absolutely and the truth of the matter is that whenever violence exists in a relationship, the violence is its own being and has to be addressed. the finding faults doesn't really change anything in terms of what people are experiencing, and so the goal is really to eradicate the violence. versus finding fault and unfortunately that's obviously not what court cases are about. they are about finding fault and so it's just an unfortunate intersection for the work that we do. we heard
9:18 am
and saw a lot of graphic testimony, audio recordings, physical and emotional abuse for those men and women you've already helped what did that do to them in their own situation? i think for some people, it may have been, um, validation of what they're experiencing. these are attractive, popular people who were both experiencing violence that being said many people also have i kind of sensitivity to the content and not being able to control how it's being fed to you, and it's coming up in your social media feeds and in conversation at work, and, um it's kind of in popular culture can be very difficult. yeah it's interesting . i mean, i had a dentist appointment. i think at some point in the past couple of weeks, and my new dentist has these big fancy screens and i got in the chair and it was the trial and i said, can we watch like a food network show? because i didn't even want to feel it. i didn't want it in my face in that sense, and it was a very difficult thing. even for me to process. let's talk about
9:19 am
a phrase that came up in this trial. one win is called it a mutual abuse. what do you think of that sort of characterization of a relationship? i think it's an oversimplification. of course, there can be times when one person is the target of harm, and the other person is using violence as a tool. i think mutual abuse is kind of a misnomer. and it does. um alleviate all accountability across the board, and so i think it can be problematic and i think when it comes to survivor experience of that's how they would describe it, and that's what we're going to follow. it's really not our role to decide from people how to describe what they've experienced. and finally, what do you say to those women and men out there who may have seen this very graphic trial for weeks and say, boy, i don't want anyone to know my business. it's bad enough that i'm dealing with it. i don't want it out there. absolutely i think it's important for people to remember that they can access services like ours across the state and across the country without disposing their identity without identifying as a survivor of any kind of abuse that can just say they want help, or want
9:20 am
something some support. we're happy to do that. anonymity and confidentiality are a huge part of what we do and why we are successful in supporting survivors and getting their stories out there. you don't have to, um, make a report. you don't have to engage with law enforcement unless you want to. and you don't have to go to court unless you want to. and so i think that we want to make sure that people know that we're here for them, regardless of how they choose to address what's going on in their lives. kimball price. i know your group barry women against rape has done. good work for many years. i appreciate your joining us here on the nine thank you for your continued support. garcia, of course, of course. coming up on mornings onto the night. we're going to be live from san ramon valley high school, where hundreds of students are putting together care kits for underserved students in contra costa county, but first russian forces gain ground in eastern ukraine as moscow condemns the latest u. s aid package

on sunday morning, i know here in june. all right, let's talk about something else. that's on our mind. besides the weather gas, right, look these days if you can find a gallon of gas for under $6 you feel like you hit the jackpot here in the bay area, so let's go to the other end of things and the other end of our state. when gas station in downtown los angeles charging more than $8 a gallon, that's about $2 more than the average price. some people accuse this chevron station of price gouging. the attorney general's office says it's warned gas companies as a whole about market manipulation, but says that state price gouging laws only go into effect if there is a declaration of an emergency, so let me tell you one thing. i've been doing a lot more of lately, i make sure i get cash when i'm at the grocery store so i can get 10 cents off right because, you know, cash discount, right? exactly. so i've been paying with cash that helps a little but $8 i drive right on by drive right by that. so you know, i've gotten roped into paying these high gas prices. when you when you rent a car and driving back to the airport, and you forgot to get
9:30 am
gas closer to town, and you have you have to get gas before you return the vehicle. so now i just prepaid for the gas at the rental counter that way, i don't have to worry about that, because i always did that. and the gas stations closest to the airport, always the one that charge wants to charge the craziest let me ask you this. how much does it cost to pre pay for gas? well it's usually right around. whatever the price is right now. it's not super expensive to have him do that. it's a really good and it's probably even 10 cents more sometimes, and sometimes i found it to be less. you'll see the price listed when you go to the rental counter, and that's when you can make your decision on the back end. if he didn't pay, they're like, oh, that's $16 a gallon stopped at the airport guests. you know, those things are never cheap, right? just a couple of tips because of me doing the traffic and that would be trying to drive when there's no slow traffic idling kills. yeah right. uh and, you know, also consolidate trips. i know everyone always talks about that. but now it you know, it means something if you only have to start the car up once, do all your trips and then come home, so that should help to reload my clipper card going good one, too
9:31 am
little electric scooters you can do around town have also thought about getting that too. i mean, that's that's how serious it's 11 11 liters of gas 80 something dollars i filled up the other day. i was like, man, i could use that leaders. wait. are you in the uk? okay sorry. gallons of actually making sure my alright. okay this serious story now police arrested a 16 year old accused of trying to recruit other people to participate in an attack at an east bay school. investigators say the target was berkeley high school. police searched the voice home after receiving a tip last month, and they say they found parts to build assault rifles, several knives, explosives and electric items that could be used to create more weapons. the teenagers surrendered to police earlier this week. berkeley school officials addressed the incident at last night's school board meeting. supporting our students has never been more important as we collectively try to make sense of senseless murders in gun violence, become the school every day to make sure our students have a foundation of stability and support and at the same time we worry about our own family safety. we keep showing up
9:32 am
because we are needed, but what is actually needed is for all of us to corrective lee stand up and say no to gun violence. the teenager could face charges of progressive are aggressive destruction device materials and threatening to commit a crime, which would result in the death of great bodily injury. the school district says it is also conducting its own investigation into these threats. we're learning more about the deadly school shooting in texas last week, but there are still lingering questions about the response by law enforcement. casey stengel has more from you validate texas. a busy week of funerals underway here in new valley as the 21 victims of last week's mass shooting at rob elementary school are laid to rest, but as the mourning process continues, daily questions remain about the police response. that day priorities is to get information to our families. the man at the center of the controversy, school police chief pr redondo made his first public comments since the shooting, saying wednesday he has been in constant contact with the texas department. of public safety
9:33 am
after dps said itself, redondo was not responding to requests for more information about why he waited more than an hour to instruct his officers on confronting the shooter. you in this newly released video? you can see law enforcement talking to at least one student who confirmed there was a gunman in the building, prompting even more frustration from folks. here you go by what you know. you know he was shooting. you know, he has a gun. you know, there's kids in there. you have to get in there. meantime, governor greg abbott is calling for an immediate safety review of all texas public schools. and in houston, the state's biggest school district. extra security has already been put in place for the last week of classes knowing what happened in your body. i can assure everyone that we are committed and will do everything in our power to keep our kids safe. the governor says he wants a progress report on his desk no later than october, 1st. that's the latest from you.

9:35 am

to be doing blanket and no so blankets that are going to end up. in local church shelters as well as toiletries, toiletries that i was mentioning. they are 1000 of them. we're going to split them into some of our local shelters and very exciting. to see the children engaged and involved in wanting to do something good for others on this day. yes. so not only are the kids who are being helped served by this, but also you just mentioned that you alluded to it. this helps the children or the students. i should say who are helping out and might set them on a path. to be more aware of what they can do with the community, right? absolutely the humanity believes that every child this serves to be able to have the opportunity to give back and we believe that every child is capable of making great things in the world. regardless of their age. it's about giving them empowerment
9:39 am
and the tools and supplies and projects and opportunities like this. for them to make a difference for them to understand that they can make a difference, regardless of their age. so how did this idea come about? how did you decide what how did you decide that you were going to or whoever decided to get this effort together because it's no small feat to get all this stuff together and then to execute. yes exactly heads, then it's been definitely several weeks, maybe a little bit longer than that. to put this event together and we are very, very grateful to the district that it's always so incredibly supportive to make sure that the kids and their communities get their hands on on the project that pledged to humanity has been putting together for many, many years. and so how did it started? it's just by the need. i think there is a need for us to help our communities and the need for children to understand that they can do. they are
9:40 am
activities that they can do. depends on with that they can see it from inception to reflection from the beginning of the project to the end, when they deliver the backpacks or the blankets or the toilet to the shelter within a tremendous sense. of joy for doing something good to others. gabby how did you decide to found pledged to humanity? did you just notice because i think a lot of people don't realize how many people out there may kind of look like everyone else. but they really do need things. how did you decide? to start helping out will ever since. i mean, i've been doing projects for many years even way before 2000 and nine windless. the humanity was founded, and it became a part five oh one c three. i think it was the need to connect the need with the people that want to give and want to serve, and so i feel like pleasure.
9:41 am
humanity is like a bridge. a bridge between the children because it is definitely youth led. primarily we certainly need parents and we definitely need adults to help us. at the support this effort, but at the same time, the goal in the heart of flesh the humanity is the children and i think the need of it was seen in need and seen so many people wanting to help, so i thought about it for a long time, and i decided to do something because when i was young, i didn't have that support or the organization that can empower me and said you can do it. and i knew that when i you know, i got older and became a young mother. that's what i wanted to do, and i think that's exactly what i was born to do. so well. well, gabby, first of all, thanks for talking above that leaf blower. that always seems to happen when you're on live television, but and also more importantly, thank you for doing what you're doing, and i'm
9:42 am
glad that you're helping out this way. it looks like it might make have a big effect. well thank you so much for having me and i really appreciate all the support that i get from everyone never fails, that leaf blower. great work being done there. let's swing over to the city now where many people in san francisco are launching an initiative to help defend abortion rights ahead of the u. s. supreme court expected overruling of roe v. wade the bar association of san francisco and san francisco city attorney announced the launch of the legal alliance for reproductive rights. the alliances of volunteer effort by 20 law firms to provide free legal services to those who may be affected if roe v. wade is struck down by the supreme court, the potential consequences of this opinion cannot be underestimated. we're not just talking about the arrests. the prosecution's the criminal convictions of women seeking reproductive healthcare. or medical professionals providing that care. we know from history. that woman. will
