Two watch parties are being held in San Francisco tonight as the Golden State Warriors continue their first NBA playoff run in six years.
The parties are being organized by “Warriors on the Waterfront,” a group that launched last week in support of the team’s proposed waterfront arena in San Francisco.
The gatherings are scheduled for 7 p.m. at Original Joe’s restaurant at 601 Union St. in North Beach and at Stock in Trade at 2036 Lombard St. in the Marina District, according to the group.
The sixth-seeded Warriors lost Game 1 of their Western Conference first round match-up on Saturday on a last-second basket by the third-seeded Denver Nuggets and also lost All-Star forward David Lee to a hip injury for the rest of the playoffs.
The Warriors will try to even the series in a game that tips off at 7:30 p.m. The team will then come home to Oakland for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday.
More information about Warriors on the Waterfront, along with the times and locations of future watch parties, can be found on the group’s website at www.warriorsonthewaterfront.com.
