Warriors news: Golden State receives Best Home Court Advantage nod from NBPA

The Golden State Warriors received the Best Home Court Advantage award by the National Basketball Players Association during the Players’ Voice Awards. These awards are a direct result of voting by the players of the league, as the motto reads: “the only awards voted on BY the players, FOR the players.”

The Warriors netted this award due to the incredible buzz surrounding Oracle Arena, from the drive around the venue to the frenzied chants during the game, making it one of the loudest and most frantic environments for any team throughout the season.

Golden State’s home court advantage has been proven over the past three seasons, as the team has won 114 regular season games and lost only nine during this three-year span of dominance. This distinct advantage becomes a near sixth-man on the court at all times, making it a definite weapon when games count the most during the postseason wars.
