A young student from a West Oakland high school was thrilled to go to Wednesday night's Warriors game with tickets he got from Warriors All-Star forward Draymond Green

The Warriors took over sole possession of the record for most wins in a single season after they won their final regular season game Wednesday.

"Going to the finals last year and the playoffs was the best ever and the finals was the best ever, but going to this game is unique. It's going to be special and something to remember," Warriors fan Peter Sontag said.

Fans at Oracle Arena got an exclusive T-shirt that reads: "Not on our ground."

Tickets on the secondary market started at about $300, but for three underprivileged kids in Oakland, Green helped out. The all-star tweeted out he was going to buy three tickets to witness history.

Dyllon Louis from McClymonds High School was one of the chosen few. "I'm a person who really takes education seriously and really want to do something for my mother so, when I graduate I can get a good job from college and then just support her," he said.

Louis said he's going to take his friend Darrel Aikens, a Warriors fan who is battling leukemia.

Louis is a star football player with a 3.73 grade point average and lived in New Orleans until about three years ago. He transferred to live with cousins after his mom got sick.

Louis wrote a personal essay about himself not realizing it would lead to tickets to an historical game. "If not I'd probably be at home watching the game on TV or I'd probably miss the game because we have track practice today. But yeah, my coach is letting me out of track practice for this so, it's got to be worth it," he said.
