Rex witnessed the Warriors and Clippers Playoff game live and he shared his once-in-a-lifetime experience with us!
Every hoops fan’s ultimate dream is to be able to watch the NBA Playoffs live.
During the Rexona NBA Flyaway, Rex Intal lived that dream for the rest of us. The former Ateneo men’s volleyball player flew to the Oracle Arena for Game 2 of the Playoff series between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers—he got to watch it courtside!
Rex documented his trip and shared Instagram stories and photos before, during, and after the game. Here are some of the highlights.
This was his first time to watch an NBA game live. And again, it wasn’t just any game—it was the Playoffs! Rex made sure that he was ready for all the sweat-inducing action that was about to go down.
Since Rex was in Warriors Ground, he was decked in all Golden State everything. He even asked fans to rate his Playoff OOTD!
Rex experienced firsthand what it felt like to be a part of “Strength in Numbers!”
After the first half, Rex shared his halftime thoughts. He noted that the Warriors lost DeMarcus Cousins to a torn quad injury in the first quarter and how the Clippers capitalized on his absence.
That was what Rex thought after seeing Golden State blow a 31-point lead—the largest in Playoff history—as the Clippers stole a victory in the Warriors’ home court. Rex even joked that he may be responsible for bringing bad luck to the defending champions.
Despite the loss of his Warriors, Rex was grateful to Rexona for the once-in-a-lifetime experience. He was courtside and witnessed an exciting game live, and Rex wouldn’t have it any other way.
For now, Rex will be watching the rest of the Playoffs on a screen, just like the rest of us. But for one game, he was able to live the ultimate dream of basketball fans everywhere.
