On Wednesday, Golden State Warriors monitor Steph Curry reacted to reports games at the Chase Center in San Francisco would be played without fans after the city hall leader prohibited social events more than 1,000 individuals.
“Everything about our routines is reliant upon that kind of game day energy. Pulling up to the arena, seeing fans outside of Chase [Center] walking around in all the Warrior jerseys, even energy in the building, you can feel it all the way through the locker room, through the tunnel,” Curry said at training. “The only thing is try to have a conversation about how you raise your level of intensity from the jump because you don’t have that actual adrenaline rush of playing in front of 18,000 people like that.”
Most NBA groups had around 15 to 20 games left. The normal season was set to end April 15 with the end of the season games to start three days after the fact.
