Cal Basketball Video: Ex-Bears Star Tyrone Wallace Excited for First NBA Playoff

Second-year guard played 2 minutes in the postseason opener vs. the Warriors

Former Cal star Tyrone Wallace, a second-year pro with the Los Angeles Clippers, played just under 2 minutes in Saturday night's series opener against the Warriors at Oracle Arena.

Wallace, who made two free throws after teammate Patrick Beverley was ejected late in the game, is excited about his first venture into NBA playoffs. He talks about it in the interview above, conducted before Saturday's game.

A 6-foot-5 guard, Wallace played in 62 games for the Clippers this season, averaging 3.5 points. His season high this year was 15 points against the Toronto Raptors, but Wallace has some history against the Warriors. As a rookie last season, he scored 22 points in just his third NBA game.

Wallace, the Clippers' fifth guard, played 1 minute, 50 seconds and converted a pair of free throws in the Clippers' 121-104 loss to the Warriors.

The teams square off again Monday night in Oakland.
