Our boys are in the Finals … for the fourth year in a row! There’s nothing like the collective Bay Area team spirit as we cheer on the Warriors to victory. This year’s Finals puts us against the Cleveland Cavaliers — the first time in NBA history two teams have faced each other for four straight seasons in the Finals.

Playing the Cavaliers will be no easy feat. But the Bay has helped lead the Warriors to two Championship wins in three years, and we’re ready to do it again.

For those looking for some camaraderie with fellow fans, or a place to watch the game with friends — check out one of the Bay's local watch parties. Here’s a roundup of some of the best spots, located conveniently close to BART. We recommend getting to each party early to settle in, grab a good spot, get your game face on and have some fun. Go Dubs!
