The Golden State Warriors are in the midst of a hard-fought series with the Sacramento Kings.
After dropping the first two games on the road, the Warriors knew Games 3&4 at home were must-wins.
Golden State cruised to victory in Game 3 but had to win a shootout in Game 4.
The game came down to the Warriros leading by one, and needing a stop to get the victory.
As you can assume, many of the fans’ hearts were racing.
One person who had an emotional reaction was Warriors owner Joe Lacob.

Lacob understood how big of a win this was for the Warriors.
They could not afford to go down 3-1, especially with how poorly they have played on the road.
Now this series is a best of 3, and Golden State needs to win one in Sacramento.
Game 5 might be their best bet to do so now that Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox is doubtful to play.
Fox suffered a fractured finger in Game 4 and played through the injury.
But it appears he will not be able to do so in Game 5.
That is a big blow for the Kings as Fox is their best player.
He is one of the most clutch players in the NBA and his shotmaking will be missed.
This series has been the best of the first round so far, and it seems destined for seven games.
But the injury to Fox could be too much for the Kings to overcome against the more experienced Warriors.NEXT: Colin Cowherd Reacts To Warriors' Win Over Kings
