"NBA 4/7/19 - Last Regular Season Game at Oracle Arena"
And it's a pretty important game for both the Warriors and The Clippers. The Warriors win, they lock down the #1 seed, and get to rest everyone during the road back-to-back. And the Clippers lose, they're the #8 seed and only have one game left to play.
Regardless, kind of sad to have the last regular season home game at Oracle. I know the play-offs are still to come, but it just means it closer to the Warriors never playing here again. It's the home of many of my favorite in-person sports-related memories.

Back when it was just the Oakland Coliseum. Yeah, it was pretty no frills, but that was a no frills era for basketball stadiums. And it was a no frills type of crowd who used to come out there.
I know commentators like to talk a lot about "Roaracle," but during the '80s and early '90s, whoooo boy did it get loud. Went to Game 3 in 1989, where we ending up sweeping the Jazz out of the first round (#7 over #2 upset) and they gave Mitch Richmond the ROY award. Man, it was PAINFULLY loud.
Definitely going to miss. I might have to try to buy some play-off tickets off of my homie, because I know realistically I'm never going to be able to make it out to the Chase Center to catch a game.

Shit, man, lots of memories.
That's why IF we do win this year, it will be the second most important for me, after #1.
And as for the game itself, I do enjoy watching them beat the brakes off of the Clippers. Looks like there's a chance the Warriors will have a few more chances, since the Clippers destiny isn't solely in their hands anymore.
