SAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors tried their best to bring the Oracle Arena atmosphere to the other side of the Bay, they really did.
And some of those efforts were validated in Thursday’s regular-season debut.
The verdict: the new place can get pretty loud — if you give the fans a reason to get loud.
It’s no Oracle Arena — not yet. And while I doubt it will ever reach those levels of ear-drum-ringing, goosebump-inducing, downright-disorienting noise, the Warriors will always have a noteworthy home-court advantage.
The fans made that abundantly clear Thursday. They might have a new commute, but the people still make the place.
