Free Golden State Warriors vs. Sacramento Kings tickets
Using the promo code "facebook" will apparently get you 75-cent tickets for this game at Oracle on Sunday. - First-Ever "Courtside Corner Three-Point Party"
So the Kings have this section for a 14-member group. If the Kings hit 14 threes in the game, the ticket prices for the group are refunded. The group would be very excited by this, so they will be keeping track on some big board during the game. As noted in the FanShots Wednesday, the Kings hitting 14 threes is rare. It happened once last year, against Memphis. Kevin Martin hit seven of those 14.
