(NBA) Golden State fires head coach Jackson
(05-07 14:59)

The Golden State Warriors fired the head coach Mark Jackson on Tuesday.
The Warriors lost 126-121 on Saturday and 4-3 on aggregate to the Clippers and missed the chance to get into the "Final Four" in the Western Conference.
"It's never easy to make a decision of this nature," said General Manager Bob Myers.
"Mark has accomplished many good things during his three years with the organization, including his role in helping elevate this team into a better position than it was when he arrived nearly 36 months ago.
"However, as an organization, we simply feel it' s best to move in a different direction at this time."
Jackson coached the Warriors for three seasons, leading them to a 121-109 record, including 51-31 in the latest regular season. The Warriors went 47-35 last season and had a memorable run to the second round of the playoffs.
Jackson led the Warriors to consecutive playoff appearances in the past two seasons, the first time in the franchise history since the 1991-1992 season. --Xinhua
