Warriors and Kings fans brawl outside Chase Center

The Golden State Warriors faced a tough challenge in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night. Not only were they down 2-0 in the series, but they also had to play without their emotional leader and defensive anchor Draymond Green, who was suspended for one game for a flagrant foul on Kings’ Domantas Sabonis in Game 2.

But the Warriors did not let that stop them from putting on a dominant performance at Chase Center, where they led wire-to-wire and won 114-97 to cut the Kings’ lead to 2-1.

While the Warriors celebrated their win inside the arena, a chaotic scene unfolded outside as fans of both teams got into a violent brawl. A video posted on social media showed several people throwing punches and kicks at each other, while others tried to intervene or record the incident on their phones.

According to reports, the fight started after some Kings fans taunted some Warriors fans as they were leaving the arena. The situation quickly escalated into a physical confrontation, but no injuries were reported. The police arrived at the scene and dispersed the crowd, but no arrests were made. The authorities are investigating the incident and reviewing the video footage to identify the suspects. The NBA has not issued any statement on the matter yet.

Stephen Curry was the catalyst for the Warriors, scoring 36 points on 12-of-25 shooting, including 6-of-12 from three-point range. He also added six rebounds and three assists and hit some clutch shots in the fourth quarter. Klay Thompson was his usual sharpshooting self, scoring 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting. Andrew Wiggins stepped up in Green’s absence, contributing 20 points and seven rebounds, while Jordan Poole provided a spark with his 16 points.

The Warriors shot 40% from the field and 32% from beyond the arc, while holding the Kings to 38% and 23.4% respectively. They also outrebounded the Kings 59-53 and forced 15 turnovers. The Kings were led by De’Aaron Fox with 26 points. Harrison Barnes scored 17 points and Domantas Sabonis had 15 points for the Kings, who struggled to find their rhythm and never threatened the Warriors.

The Warriors showed their resilience and determination in Game 3, proving that they are not ready to give up on their season. They will need to bring the same energy and focus in Game 4, as they face a hungry and talented Kings team that will look to bounce back and regain control of the series.
