How Warriors fans can watch game this season with Larry O'Brien Trophy

Once the NBA season starts, every player is out for the same thing -- a chance to raise the Larry O'Brien Trophy at the end of the year.

During the 2017-18 season, Warriors fans can watch a game at Oracle Arena with the prize possession right by their side. All you need is $2,000. 

If you can write the check, the trophy will pay you a visit in a premium suite, plus two bottle of champagne and a gift bag that includes a six-inch replica trophy and a replica championship ring. 

Fans are limited to four experiences with the trophy per game. 

Darren Rovell of ESPN was first to share the details. 

Warriors one win away from playing Pelicans in Western Conference Semifinals

SAN ANTONIO -- The Warriors are one win away from advancing to the Western Conference Semifinals, and if they get there the New Orleans Pelicans will be waiting.

The Pelicans on Saturday became the first NBA team advance this postseason when they completed a sweep of Portland with a 131-123 win in Game 4 in New Orleans.

New Orleans entered the postseason as a No. 6 seed, while the Trail Blazers were the 3-seed and had earned homecourt advantage.

The Warriors have a 3-0 series lead over the San Antonio Spurs. The teams meet in Game 4 Sunday afternoon.

Should the Warriors close out the series, they would open against the Pelicans next weekend at Oracle Arena.

Steph Curry looks solid in return to Warriors practice with no sign of setback

SAN ANTONIO -- Stephen Curry returned to practice Saturday, but there will be no miracle Sunday when the Warriors meet the Spurs in Game 4 of their first-round series.

“He’s coming along well,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “But don’t expect him to be Willis Reed tomorrow.”

The Willis Reed reference dates back to the 1970 NBA Finals, when the Knicks center came limping onto the court for Game 7, despite a torn muscle in his right thigh, provided an emotional lift that gave New York the victory.

Curry has missed the last four weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee. The Warriors were pleased to have him back on the court for non-contact drills. He completed those drills along with his teammates, without any sign of a setback.

“From his movements, he looked good to me,” Kevin Durant said.

“He was really shooting the ball well and moving around well,” assistant coach Ron Adams said. “I don’t know how he’s feeling internally, but I like his attitude about this. He’s positive and upbeat and it rubs off on the other guys.”

Curry is scheduled to be re-evaluated next weekend, after which his status will be updated.

Though both Shaun Livingston and Durant rolled their left ankles in Game 3, participated in practice. Durant is not on the injury report and Livingston is listed as probable.
