On April 5th, 2019, the Golden State Warriors hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers in their penultimate regular season game at the Oracle Arena.

With LeBron James signing for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2018 offseason, this Warriors-Cavaliers clash didn't have the same excitement and competitiveness that the battles over the previous four seasons had.

The Warriors led by 19 at halftime and the game was pretty much done but there was some entertainment at halftime.

For the ninth straight year, the Bhangra Empire dance group performed at the Oracle Arena. Here's a look at their performance on the occasion of the Warriors' Bollywood night:

Bhangra Empire also performed at the sixth annual Bollywood night event hosted by Sacramento Kings in January.
