Warriors owner Mark Jackson wants the fans to stay home instead of attending game fiveof his teams western conference first round series with the Los Angeles Clippers.
"I believe as fans, the loudest statement they could make as far as fans is to not show up to the game," Jackson said on Monday in Oakland before the Warriors traveled to Los Angeles.
"As an African-American man that's a fan of the game of basketball and knows its history and knows what's right and what's wrong, I would not come to the game tomorrow, whether I was a Clipper fan or a Warrior fan."
The series it tied at two games apiece, with each team winning once at home and once on the road.
The Clippers made a statement against the owner's comments by wearing their warm-up shirts inside out during pre-game, and the national anthem ahead of game four, which Golden State won easily.
Game five is Tuesday night at Staples Center in LA.
