As much as we’d like to bask in the glow of Game 3, we really do have to move on. Yes, Game 3 presented an absolutely electric atmosphere and yes, that win came in this season’s most important game for the Warriors, at least until Game 4 tips off on Sunday evening at Oracle Arena. The Warriors now have a 2-1 advantage in this series, and the Warriors have to do more than simply show up if they want to win two more and advance to the second round of the NBA Playoffs.
The players and coaches are aware of that, and they discussed as much at practice today in the videos below.
The fun starts back up Sunday evening, and fans attending the game should be aware of some important gameday information. Most notably, fans should be aware that the A’s also have a home game tomorrow at 1:05 p.m., and there’s a high likelihood of that game ending as Warriors fans start to arrive to Oracle Arena. As a result, fans are encouraged to use public transportation to get to and from the game, and those driving are asked to keep the A’s game in mind when making your travel plans.
Enough about logistics, let’s get back to enjoying Game 3, just as long as you promise to be focused on and ready for Game 4.
