On the 1st (hereinafter Korean time) at the Sacramento Golden 1 Center, Game 7 of the 2023 NBA Playoffs Round 1 between the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings will be held.

Game 7 is unfamiliar to both teams. It is more so for Sacramento, who stepped on the playoff stage after 16 years.
Sacramento has never experienced a Game 7 matchup since the 2004 Western Semifinal Series, when they fought Minnesota in Game 7. The 2003-2004 season was the debut season for 20-year veteran LeBron James. At the time, Sacramento was leading the team with key members of the ‘Millennium Kings’ such as Chris Webber, Peya Stojakovic, Brad Miller, and Mike Bibi.
Even in Golden State, which is home to veterans who have gone through prenatal battles, the 7th game is a bit unfamiliar.
Since 2009, when Stephen Curry made his debut, Golden State has won only four times in Game 7. In particular, Golden State has never played Game 7 since the Western Finals in 2018, when it fought Houston. This is the first game in 5 years since the 7th game.
At that time, Golden State trailed Houston with 2 wins and 3 losses, but won 2 wins and succeeded in advancing to the finals for the 4th year in a row. And in the finals, there is a bar that won the league with a 4-game sweep victory over Cleveland. Even then, Golden State was the defending champion.
GSW’s most recent PO Game 7 win since the Curry era
2014 West 1R: 3-4 loss (vs Clippers)
2016 West Finals: 4-3 win (vs Oklahoma City)
2016 Finals: 3-4 loss (vs. Cleveland)
2018 Western Finals: 4-3 Victory (vs Houston)
If Sacramento wins in Game 7 held on the 1st, a new history will be written.
First of all, Sacramento will taste a playoff series victory in 19 years. Sacramento’s last playoff series victory was the 2004 Western Round 1 series (vs Dallas, 4-1). The opportunity to shake off the lingering attachment to the glory of the ‘Millennium Kings’ has finally arrived.
Meanwhile, Golden State will be named the 8th defending champion ever eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. The previous record holders were Portland (1978), Lakers (1981), Philadelphia (1984), San Antonio (2000), Miami (2007), Dallas (2012), and San Antonio (2015).
