LOS ANGELES (AP) — Golden State coach Mark Jackson has a suggestion for fans of both the Warriors and the Clippers: Don’t show up for Game 5 in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

Jackson was responding to questions Monday about how fans in Los Angeles should react to the purported comments of Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling a woman not to bring black people to his games or associate with them.

The Warriors coach said: “I believe if it was me, I wouldn’t come to the game. I believe the fans, the loudest statement that they can make as fans is to not show up to the game.”

Jackson said players have families to worry about and are getting paid to be there but fans “cannot allow someone with these feelings to profit.”
