“I didn’t feel good last game but I feel really good tonight!” said Marlene Lucky, a Warriors fan.

The fans are delighted with the victory. While some say it’s Stephen Curry’s lucky shoes, hair and persona, others think young Benny Romero from San Francisco was key to the Dubs’ success.

The 9-year-old, who some have called lucky, unfortunately had his Warriors bike stolen recently, so the organization invited him and his entire family to the game.

“We just got a call from the Warriors coach this morning, the assistant coach, and we’re thrilled about it,” Benny’s mother Brenda Rodriguez said.

“We all jumped up, got dressed and got out as fast as we could,” Benny’s father Ricardo Romero said.

“I was very happy. I learned what a box is first and got even happier,” Benny said.

Benny got that call from Warriors assistant coach Mike Brown. The team gave Benny and his family seats for game 2 with a signed Curry jersey, it’s almost as good as those who dressed in “pool” gear to attend Poole’s party with Jordan Poole and brothers Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry.
