It has been 10 days since the Warriors last suited up at Oracle Arena, but today the team was back in their home digs in preparation for tomorrow’s Game 3 playoff matchup with the Denver Nuggets. Although it wasn’t their usual practice setting, the workout did allow them to get re-accustomed with the sightlines and backdrops of their home floor. But one thing was missing … #DubNation.
“The biggest thing that I’m waiting for and excited to see are these fans,” Jarrett Jack said after practice today. “They’ve been waiting for the opportunity to be a part of postseason basekball for a very long time. If there is any people that deserve it, they do. I just can’t wait to come in here and hear this place going crazy.”
Hear more from Jack and other Warriors in the video below.
It’d be an understatement to say the team is looking forward to the #WarriorsGround atmosphere provided by the best fans in professional sports, and even the mainstream media is anticipating a scene unlike any other in the NBA.
So quiet in Denver right now, I can hear the crowd in Oracle from three days away. #NUGGETSvWARRIORS— Scott Howard-Cooper (@SHowardCooper) April 24, 2013
If you plan on being part of the scene for Game 3, you should be aware that the A’s will also be playing a home game Friday night, and increased traffic and congestion is to be expected around Oracle Arena and O.Co Coliseum. For more gameday information that you should know about, click here.
Once fans arrive to their seat, they will be greeted with a commemorative “We Are Warriors” gold T-Shirt. These special edition playoff shirts are currently being placed on each and every seat in Oracle Arena, and the result will be a sea of gold that is sure to shine bright whether you’re at the game or watching from home.
These next 24 hours can’t pass soon enough!
