As he plots his own comeback in California, Sen. Bernard Sanders on Monday night took a break from campaigning and attended Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference finals, watching from the 15th row as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder and capped off an impressive come-from-behind win in the series.

Mr. Sanders was joined by actor Danny Glover, an ardent Sanders supporter, at the game. ESPN reported that the average ticket price for the event was $960.

On Twitter, Mr. Sanders posted several pictures from the game.

The Vermont senator stood out in the crowd as one of the few fans not wearing a distinctive yellow Warriors T-shirt; Mr. Sanders instead wore his trademark blue dress shirt.

After the game, he praised the Warriors comeback after being down three games to one in the series and hinted that he’ll mount a similar comeback against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary.

“Last week, Golden State was down three games to one. Tonight, they finished off a great comeback in California,” Mr. Sanders tweeted. “I like comebacks.”

Mr. Sanders will face off against Mrs. Clinton in the California primary on June 7, while the Warriors will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals.
