OAKLAND -- The Warriors were still steaming a bit Friday about the play in which Los Angeles Clippers forward Glen Davis injured Jermaine O'Neal, leaving the veteran center's status in doubt for Game 7.

"That was tough, just seeing how it happened," Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala said. "You get the thought in your mind, 'Are we playing a game or are we trying to end things for other guys?' "

O'Neal was not at the Warriors' practice Friday because he was getting an MRI that revealed a bone bruise on his right knee. He's listed as questionable for Saturday's 7:30 p.m. game at Staples Center.

In his absence, O'Neal's teammates spoke about the need to respond.

"Regardless of whether the play was dirty or not, one of our guys went down," forward Draymond Green said. "And when a guy goes down, we've got to come together even more. With him going down, we knew we had to pick it up.

"You don't want that to be his last game. He barely could walk off the floor because he's in so much pain. After 18 years, all the work he's put in, everything he's done for this league, everything he's done for this team this year, you don't want that to be his last game."

Coach Mark Jackson said he'd wait for the MRI results but wouldn't rule out O'Neal playing Saturday.

"I would put nothing past him," Jackson said. "The guy is a gamer. He wants to go out on his terms."

Davis drew only a common foul with 9:39 left in the second quarter Thursday, and the NBA hasn't issued any further punishment.

  • With so much focus on the Clippers' distractions dealing with the Donald Sterling controversy, the Warriors believe they are the team that actually has overcome more off-the-court adversity this season with the uncertainty surrounding Jackson's future and the midseason firing of one assistant coach and reassignment of another.

    "That was one incident," Green of the Sterling ordeal. "But everybody knows the stories and everything we've been hearing about the entire year."

  • Al Attles, the Warriors' coach the last time they played in a Game 7, in 1977, gave his advice on approaching the final game of a series.

    "The most important thing is to try to stay true to what got you here," Attles said. "Trust what got you here. That's the most important thing, and we'll be in good shape tomorrow."

    Attles' team won Game 7 of the Western Conference finals in 1975 against the Chicago Bulls on its way to Golden State's only NBA title. But the next two years, the Warriors lost twice in Game 7s -- in the conference finals to the Phoenix Suns in 1976 and the conference semifinals to the Los Angeles Lakers in 1977. The Warriors haven't won a Game 7 on the road since 1948, when they played in Philadelphia.

  • The Game 6 coverage on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area was the highest-rated telecast of a Warriors game in the network's history, breaking the record set in Game 3. The game averaged 177,066 viewers.
