After Saturday night’s 102-91 victory, the Warriors are a win away from the conference finals, up 3-0 on Utah.

But where can they go to celebrate?

Earlier in the week, Andre Iguodala and Matt Barnes told ESPN they would have rather faced the Los Angeles Clippers, with the latter claiming Utah has “no nightlife.”

The Jazz responded quickly, printing and selling T-shirts labeled “#Nightlife.”

The exchange has stayed mostly playful.

Of course, Vivint Smart Home Arena was the center of Salt Lake City nightlife Saturday as nearly 20,000 showed up to watch the Warriors. Millions more watched from home, and fans were quick to reference #Nightlife on Twitter.
