"We are going to win. We have more experience than them and they are too excited. They are going over the top and the Warriors are just relaxing right now and we are favorites so were going to have to play good on the road," said Warriors fan Otto Gaytan.

Fans from both teams are gearing up here in the Bay Area and others are even flying north to cheer on the dubs.

"I'm bringing a Warriors T-shirt to her husband and he has a Raptors t-shirt for me," said Margarita Calvio, a Bay Area resident and Warriors fan.

We asked Calvio if she is going to wear the Raptors jersey, "I'm a Bay Area girl and I'm not wearing the Raptors I'm wearing my Warriors," said Margarita Calvio.

Tickets to fly to Canada range between $400 to $600.

"Home court advantage it's the biggest thing that we have. Because we have all those fans and Drake supporting us. Drake will be there. Yeah he has a whole army around him," said Sanan Akhundzada.

Local rapper E40 posted a photo with Canadian rapper Drake and said, "SO IT BEGINS".
