2023 Kings versus Warriors - Playoffs: West 1st Round, Game 7

Sunday morning, Larkin and I met at Foundations for a misoma. Afterwards, we wandered over to the Golden 1 Center for game seven of the first round of the NBA Playoffs: Sacramento Kings versus Golden State Warriors. The Kings led the Warriors by the score of 58 to 56 at halftime. Powered by Stephen Curry, the Warriors pulled away in the third quarter and won by the score of 120 to 100.

Curry erupted for 50 points, the most points scored in a Game 7 in NBA history. His 38 shot attempts were the most he has had in an NBA game and his 22 points in the paint also were a career high. Curry was 20 for 38 from the field, 7 for 18 from three and 3 for 5 from the free throw line.

Domantas Sabonis was the high scorer for the Kings. He had 22 points on 10 for 16 from the field, 0 for 1 from three and 2 for 6 from the free throw line.

De'Aaron Fox struggled. He had 16 points on 5 for 19 from the field, 3 for 10 from three and 3 for 4 from the free throw line.

Larkin and I connected with Drew and Carmen before the game and at halftime. I ran into Bill Evans from work as I was getting a hotdog before the game.

I ended up sitting right next to a loud Warriors fan which marred the experience. I switched seats with Larkin at the end of the third quarter.

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