Light work.

That's what the Warriors did against the Portland Trail Blazers, sweeping their first-round series with a win Monday night. It was very much expected, and now it's onto the Western Conference semifinals for them. But there's something more important going on with coach Steve Kerr, who didn't coach in Games 3 and 4 of the series because of lingering issues from two back surgeries in 2015.

Kerr is in so much pain that he's decided he can't coach the Warriors during games right now -- and won't come back until feels better. Put it this way: It looks like it's possible the Warriors won't have Kerr on the sidelines from this point on.

The San Francisco Giants are off to a terrible start, and it just got worse because Madison Bumgarner injured himself riding a dirt bike. The act was selfish, irresponsible, a bad decision, short-sighted, immature and just plain stupid -- or so most people say.

Hey, this guy is one of the best pitchers in baseball, so he'll ride a dirt bike any time he wants -- and there plenty of teams that would be more than happy to let him do it.

Lastly, bad time for BART, with this takeover robbery at the West Oakland station. Haven't seen anything like that before and hopefully we won't again. Also, Steinmetz has a BART/Clipper card dilemma if anyone can help.

The Golden State Warriors have gotten off to the kind of start in the playoffs that their fans hoped they'd get off to -- taking a 2-0 lead after a couple of games at Oracle.

Even playing without Kevin Durant, the Warriors blew out the Blazers 110-81 on Wednesday. In addition, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson didn't play all that well. That's what's got to be demoralizing for the Blazers. Players such as JaVale McGee, Patrick McCaw, Ian Clark and David West did in Portland.

Now, the series shifts to Portland, but it doesn't seem like anyone is expecting much to change. The themes heading into that one: Will Durant play? Will Jusuf Nurkic play? Bottom line is the Warriors look unbeatable, and we talk about it.

Lastly, real quick, what age is "too old" to be living with your parents? Apparently, according to Sal, millennials are living at home older and older these cays, and what's most shocking is: The parents don't throw them out!

The Golden State Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 121-109 in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Sunday night. It was a heck of a ballgame, really, as Damian Lillard and C.J.McCollum were brilliant, combining for 75 points.

But the Warriors, led by Draymond Green, used their defense to finally hold down the Blazers' potent backcourt in the fourth quarter. Green finished with an unreal game: 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, five blocks and three steals.

Not sure if he also had a partridge in a pear tree.

Sal and Steiny also talked briefly about the San Francisco Giants and whether they stink or not. It's early and Steinmetz still thinks they have time. Of course they do. They've only played 14 games. Last but not least, the boys want to find a way to get A's president Dave Kaval on their podcast. Why? Because Kaval is the man and he's got things going in a great direction for the A's.
