Warriors loose, ready for Game 6 at Oracle
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Warriors fans are starting to head out to the newly dubbed "Roaracle" Arena in Oakland for the game that could clinch Golden State a spot in the next round of the NBA Playoffs. This comes after some physical play and nasty words exchanged after the last game in Denver.
The Warriors have won three games in the best of seven series and could close it out tonight. A win would mean they move into the semifinals, while a loss would mean they're heading back to Denver Saturday for Game 7.
We caught up with the team's barber, Demorea Evans, who said the players are really loose and ready to go, "It's good, it's in a health place," he said. "They got the right mind set. I mean, they in a good place. We were talking about BBQ, that was the conversation, the different types of BBQ they've had in Texas, Memphis, and places like that."
The Nuggets played a physical style in Game 5 that Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry is shaking off.
"Guys will try to get under your skin anyway they can," Curry said. "It's fun and a competitive environment."
The Warriors organization spent three hours Wednesday night putting yellow shirts on every seat at Oracle Arena, but ran short of about 3,000 shirts. The shirts were expected in a shipment earlier this afternoon.
Tipoff for Game 6 is 7:30 p.m.
