Where to watch the Warriors near BART
Dub Nation, get ready. The Warriors are back in the NBA Finals for the fifth straight year and there’s no better place to be than in the Bay Area during a championship run.
It's been Warriors vs Cavs for the last four years but now, our Dubs face a new set of challenges against the Toronto Raptors (and Drake). Game 5 was bittersweet for the Warriors with the brief return of KD (which we now know is injured and out for the rest of the Finals), but they managed to beat the Raptors in Toronto. Did you see how quiet that arena got when the final buzzer went off? We did, but we also saw a celebration at Oracle Arena fit for champions.
Oracle Arena is wishing it could fit every single person that is part of Dub Nation for the final Warriors game and Game 6 but we have Strength In Numbers. Since all of us can't fit, we have some great spots, conveniently close to BART, for you and your squad to watch the game. We recommend getting to each venue a little early to settle in, grab a good spot, get your game face on and have some fun.
