That's because the Warriors are opening up their home arena for watch parties for Game 3 on June 8 and Game 4 on June 10 – and Game 6 on June 16, if necessary. Doors to the arena will open one hour before tip-off.
Watch party tickets for Games 3 and 4 – priced at $25 each – are available now at warriors.com. If there is a Game 6 in the best-of-seven series, tickets for that watch party will go on sale at a later date.
A portion of the proceeds from the watch party tickets will benefit the Warriors Community Foundation.
Fans interested in watching Finals games at Thrive City outside the arena must register in advance at thrivecity.com.
Thrive City watch parties during the Finals will be standing room only. Lawn chairs are prohibited.
Game 1 of the Finals tips off at 6 p.m. Thursday.
