“Warriors pride has filled the San Francisco Bay Area as our home team basketball heroes enter the NBA playoffs this weekend. The Dub Nation can now turn its attention to what will undoubtedly be an exhilarating post-season, after an exciting 51-win regular season – the team’s first back-to-back playoff appearances in 20 years.
The San Francisco Bay Area is Warriors Ground, and San Francisco stands behind the Warriors with high hopes for a successful playoff season. Congratulations to the remarkable Warriors team, the entire Golden State Warriors organization and the many fans in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We’re loud and proud. Go Warriors!”
