>> and now kron 4 sports brought to you by xfinity. >> the warriors looking to improve to 16 2 in hosting philadelphia chase center dubbed star steph curry is said you can never let your younger sibling one-up you. so he wasn't about to let his younger brother one-up him in this game. sibling rivalry on center stage. 76 ers guard seth curry off to a hot start this season averaging 15 points per game. there he is. he pushed deaf and this one 1st quarter staffed with guardian too hits the trey step at 14 the 1st half but said it did him 3 better
scoring 17. this layup right here gives philly a 19 point lead the half warriors guard jordan's pools from half court at the buzzer. >> it's good for 3 points. the dup's fight back to trail by 9 at the break. 3rd quarter staff transition staff in traffic dishes. it again, takes a step. hear this 3 ties. the game after gets it back. 63 all then curry time. but you see finds draymond what a pretty pass to find andrew wiggins in the corner. his shot is good warriors lead by 3 wiggins with 9 in the 3rd 4th quarter staff. ball's in his hands. again, no shock. there tawanda anderson for the tough hoop inside and he's fouled. where's retake the lead by 3 jta was not done here takes it to the rack, the slammer around the world and he has dubs up by 8 a couple minutes later, ball movement by the warriors pool misses
the 3, guess who's there to follow it up to anderson, a huge 4th quarter. he had 13 points off the bench staff. but the towel on his head is thrilled. now he's back in from 3. bring on the turkey step with 25 points set had 24 that's right. for years. when one 1696, they improved to an nba best 16 2, they host damian lillard and the blazers on friday. philly native and kron. 4 sports director jason dumas was in the house for tonight's game. he joins us now live at chase center. jason, how are the dup's able to turn it around in the 2nd half. >> thailand is just this team to go from down 19 to winning by 20 tonight was just another example of the potential of this team. i don't want to get ahead of myself as an 82 game season. but you just get special wives now before the
game. steve kerr said, hey, no, joel mb know tobias harris know ben simmons. it doesn't matter. this sixers team does not beat themselves. they commit the least amount of turnovers in the nba. if the warriors don't come out with energy. they're going to get slapped in the mouth can guess what happened. they got slapped in the mouth and that 1st half they're down by as many as 19 points and it got really ugly. but then they go into the half. they get rejuvenated. jordan poole hit big shot going into halftime. they come out and a half on a 30 to 8 run. they needed energy and they got it from the hometown kid want to anderson. this kid just a pit in my xyz warriors basketball and he grew up here in oakland, as we all know, been well publicized. he scored all 13 of his points in the 2nd half. and guess what, he calls himself a junkyard dog and his coaching loves it. in fact, the word he used privilege.

was asked about it after the game. he said it looked like that because i actually didn't think the shot was going in salt trying to willie in with my lower half and ended up going in. and that's what my reaction look like. so now as another funny moment and like you said, they hook up with the portland trail blazers on the portland trail blazers on friday. that's a homecoming oakland guy. but the warriors will want to take care of business before they go on the road and take on the clippers and then the suns who have the second-best record in the nba will have all that coverage leading up to all those games. but for now at all at oracle, she's at chase center adjacent to mask. i went back to you. >> thanks, jason. wrong here. we're back at chase center now and the president. thanks so much for that report. yeah, it looks like an irish jig it. but i guess it worked for stuff. the forty-niners putting in work at levi stadium looking to win their 3rd straight this weekend. it looks like san francisco may have turned a corner since destroying the rams home and then dominating the struggling jaguars on the road. however, head coach kyle shanahan says his team can't get complacent.
the vikings come to the south bay on sunday. minnesota is also 5, 5, and fighting to stay in the nfc playoff race is you have an idea of the other teams are stuff like that going into it. but. >> no, i think they've been battling back to the season just like we have 2 teams are probably playing better ball of the year right now and. >> so i think our players are very well aware of from the film from what they've been doing on their numbers in a bunch areas. it's going to be real tough game. >> there's record the sharks host. the senators at the tank. it was 3, 3, in the 3rd in san jose exploded for 3 goals timo meier logan couture and jacob middleton hall scored to break it open. there's a pretty one for middleton. it was the first goal of his nhl career. a special night for him. sharks win 6, 3, they've now won 2 straight after losing 6 of 8, they host toronto on friday.
>> california is the only place in the world where you can find naturally occurring groves of giant sequoia trees and experts use to think that wildfires didn't pose a threat to their existence. here. but as chip yost tells us, they don't think that anymore. >> as huge flames started getting closer to giant sequoia groves in september. special teams of firefighters try to protect them taking
special measures such as wrapping up protective foil around their bases. this here is the general grant, the second largest tree in the world. and one of the trees that firefighters and park workers used a very unique methods on in order to protect it during one of the recent fires, one of those methods involved setting up sprinklers next to the tree. firefighters were also taught what to do if the fire got inside the court say this heart was way up. top. >> this goes all the way up. they're going to get that hose, turn the pressure up and they actually stick the hose up into there. because really there's no other way you can get it from the top. can't get it with tools. so ehey're just they're out there think outside the box on some of these fires. the extraordinary measures put in place after thousands of remarkably fire resistant giant sequoias were lost to wildfires in recent years. such devastation. >> 10 to 14% of the entire giant sequoia population was
once unthinkable. that's been really disturbing because we didn't think that was possible for these trees have evolved with fire for thousands of years say the existing with fire for thousands of years. >> and something in the last couple years driven by changes in climate and hotter conditions. drier conditions. a difference in fuel loading. all of those things combined have created the conditions where these trees. are now struggling to survive. >> experts say one big reason for the unprecedented losses is decades and decades of fire suppression. let's explain for centuries. researchers say small to moderate fires sparked by lightning or other causes. >> would burn through the forest. every 10 to 20 years. clearing the ground of smaller trees, brush and forest debris and providing fertile spots for sequoia seeds to landing grow. but in 1935 the u.s. force service adopted the 10:00am policy. that is it would try to put out every fire by 10:00am the day after
it started that policy. however, allow the density of those for us to grow unchecked for decades combined with drought and hotter temperatures. all that dry forest buildup can now turn small to moderate fires into infernos. big enough to reach the top of giant sequoia trees and killed them. the fire gets off the ground gets into the canopy. a 100 to 200 feet off the ground. >> and incinerate these ancient trees. these 1000 to 2000 year old trees turns them into the world's biggest blackest toothpick. >> that's amazing. have a good night, everybody. and happy thanksgiving the night.
