Have you made it to a Santa Cruz Warriors game yet? The development team for the Golden State Warriors are the current NBA D-League champions and have advanced to the finals every year since they moved to Santa Cruz in 2012. In fact, 2015 was the first time an NBA team and their development affiliate both won the championship in the same year. Plus their new 2,500-seat arena located near Downtown Santa Cruz is awesome. Snag tickets for as little as $17 and grab pre-game drinks and dinner for the perfect evening.
