A sweep of the Portland Trailblazers is how the West was won. The Golden State Warriors are heading to the NBA Finals for the 5th Consecutive season. They are now in the company of the 1957 – 1966 Boston Celtics who reached the NBA finals 10 times in a row.
The Warriors are on a mission to three-peat winning their 3rd consecutive title.
The undeniably talented squad were down two all-stars in Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins this series and even missed the clutch performance of bench legend Andre Iguodala during the final game. None of that really mattered as the other three all-stars in Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson handled business. The other role players who were called up from the bench, which included major contributions from Kevon Looney, also helped seal the deal.
Curry and Green managed to make a little history in their comeback to win Game 4. They became the first pair of teammates in all of postseason history to both record a triple-double in the same game.
They are set to face off against the winner of the Eastern Conference Final, who has yet to be determined. As of now, the Milwaukee Bucks lead the Toronto Raptors 2-1 in their series.
