2023 Kings versus Warriors - Playoffs: West 1st Round, Game 5

Larkin, Drew, Sharon and I went to game five of the first round of the NBA Playoffs: Sacramento Kings versus Golden State Warriors. While I went to the game with Larkin, Drew took Sharon to the game. Drew, Sharon and I all got a chicken rice bowls from Ginger Star for dinner. While we were eating on the second floor, Kyle and Kelsey and Van Wong wandered by.

Going 8 for 12 from 3-point range in the first quarter, the Kings ran out to a 10 point lead. The Kings then went 2 for 21 from 3 over the final three quarters. Although they got within 1 point with 5 minutes to play [109-108], the Kings lost the game by the score of 123 to 116.

As you would expect, Stephen Curry was the high scorer for the Warriors. He had 31 points on 12 for 25 from the field, 2 for 10 from three and 5 for 6 from the free throw line.

De'Aaron Fox was the high scorer for the Kings. He had 24 points on 9 for 25 from the field, 3 for 10 from three and 3 for 3 from the free throw line.

At halftime, Larkin and I wandered up to the Sierra Nevada Draught House to connect with Drew and Sharon.

It was very cool to be in the building for game one and game five. Unfortunately, the game five experience was marred a little by a couple of very obnoxious warrior fans sitting around us. While I probably shouldn't have been, I was surprised at the number of Warriors at game five.

The Kings have five wins and two losses in games that I have seen in person during the 2022-2023 NBA season.
