Warriors advance to NBA Finals vs. Cavaliers

OAKLAND, Calif. – For a team that arguably breezed through the regular season by accumulating the NBA’s best season record of 73 wins and nine losses, this win-or-go-home Game 7 match-up Monday night was the hardest game to date for the Golden State Warriors.

They were down in the series 3-1, however, rallied back to win the Western Conference Championship in front of their home crowd in Oakland and advance to the NBA Finals.

2016 NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry led all scorers with 36 points, which included seven three-pointers.

“It means everything. This is what we work for – the opportunity to advance and get back to the finals in front of our home crowd and doing it in the fashion that we did it,” Curry said.

The Warriors will once again face the Cleveland Cavaliers, who defeated the Toronto Raptors, to claim the Eastern Conference Championship.

Head coach Tyronn Lue anticipates a competitive championship especially since his core players, which include Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will all be ready to play.

“Getting back and having a chance with everybody healthy, it’s our chance to really show what we can do,” Lue said.

All-Stars Irving and Love had to sit out most of last year’s NBA Finals due to injuries and eventually watch their team fall to the Warrior’s four games to two.

The Warriors faced the Cavaliers twice in the regular season and was victorious in both games.

Game 1 will take place this Thursday, June 2 at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

    Most people that watches basketball are getting fatter than ever…don’t even know how to drible or shoot the ball…like uncle Homer, he hardcore in cheering, loud obnoxious annoying noise but could hardly throw the ball..? The best to do is to not watch any basketball, get out thre and play it. Do not watch history, you go out there and do one for yourself…
