Warriors to honor Kevin Durant, Oakland with Game 6 rally towels
The Golden State Warriors are playing their most important game of the season on Thursday night, and it will be an emotional one for a number of different reasons. Their rally towels are a reflection of that.
Game 6 of the NBA Finals could be the Warriors’ final game of the season, but it will definitely be the last game they play at Oracle Arena in Oakland. They will also once again be playing without Kevin Durant, who suffered a torn Achilles in Game 5. The rally towels they are handing out give a nod to both Durant and the city of Oakland.

The Warriors are moving to a new state of the art arena in San Francisco next year. They’re hopeful they can re-sign Durant this offseason, but it may also end up being the last game in which he is a part of the team — injured or not.
Durant’s mother indicated earlier in the week that there could potentially be some tension between the Warriors and the Durant family, but the rally towels are a nice gesture. It should be a fun night at Oracle Arena.
