And now, it’s wife Melinda, along with San Jose Sharks legend Joe Thornton and his wife Tabea:

At least based off social media sightings, it’s Erik Karlsson’s third straight Warriors’ home playoff game, and his first win. On Apr. 28, the Sacramento Kings ran the Warriors out of Chase Center 116-99 in Game Six of their series. On Tuesday, Los Angeles edged out Golden State 117-112 in Game One. But yesterday, the Warriors were all guns a-blazin’ in a 127-100 rout of the Lakers.
