A sellout crowd is expected Saturday in Oakland for the Golden State Warriors opening round playoff game and four lucky young fans from the Valley will be in the arena.

All four kids are members of the East Fresno Boys and Girls Club. They each received a ticket to the playoff game between the Warriors and the Houston Rockets, all courtesy of Kaiser Permenente.

Transportation will be provided by the Police Activities League and Fresno Police will be taking the boys on the trip.

"These kids are great kids. They come from neighborhoods that are tough with gangs and poverty, but these are great kids," Lt. Mark Salazar of the Fresno Police Department said. "The Fresno Police Department has a great working relationship with the Boys and Girls Club. We've been on trips to Disneyland together. We've done educational trips. And we have a mentoring program with the East Fresno Boys and Girls Club."

The Warriors posted the best regular season record in NBA this season at 73-9.
