    This didn’t feel like a Game 1

    This felt like a Game 7

      @zone x entertainment I don’t know about that one, I think gsw got it in round 5, kings are good but warriors are a clutch team ngl😅

    • Issac Mitchell says:

      Because the warriors needed that one, especially with the road record they got

    • Sterling Powell says:

      Every game will be like this hopefully

    • hamhockbeans says:

      ​@zone x entertainment Just Kings players watch for that cheap shot artist Draymond.

    • Robert Jr says:

      @Mo Gamingff  Kings have the most blown calls against them this year. The league even admitted it lol. It’s not the first year either they lead the league in blown calls. Why would refs switch it up now all of a sudden? Love the excuses lmao

  2. Uthman Alawiye says:

    this is why we love the playoffs.. the intensity was unbeatable 🔥🔥

  3. WhyNotZero says:

    In the early game fox was struggling , Malik monk was carrying it all ,fox started to kill in the fourth
    Their chemistry is still there 🔥

    • Collin says:

      A lil tight it is their first experience and the all the buzz and the atmosphere. But they handled it once they got settled. I expect better production from domas huerter and even Keegan next game.

    • Shaul yehudah says:

      @Mustafa khan especially heurter. He’s usually pretty consistent

    • Mustafa khan says:

      Kings had a couple of players who seemed a bit off that game.

  4. Mystic Usher says:

    Damn, it’s been 17 years since their last playoff appearance. I was just 8 years old back then. It feels so good seeing them back in the playoffs again. Well deserved win, let’s go kings!! 👏

  5. D2 Masochist says:

    What a sensational game, truly. Both teams played exceptional basketball.

  6. matt87 says:

    Honestly now I’m kinda happy we got the Warriors. We have a great series on our hands. Go Kings!

    • DavidVideosr. says:

      @bambi boi but they did also have three starters who were non existent this game. If they show up in this series it could be dangerous

    • bambi boi says:

      Kings had to have to players to go off to barely win while warriors didn’t even play that good

    • Alireza Esfandiari says:

      I am fan of neither but it seem like Kings going nowhere. It felt like Kings performed more than their best but for Warriors I am not saying it was their average performance but ofc it wasn’t the best. So in IMO Warriors in 7

    • Bryant Wallace says:

      @Victor Byeyou can tell you all do haven’t been here much 😂

    • Victor Bye says:

      @Raul Melo smoking that warriors pack 🚬
