did not age well for Bazemore...Warriors lost in the playins with Bazemore as a starter last year yet quickly found his way to getting DNPs on the Lakers

>Bazemore turned down more money and years (two) from the Warriors, sources say, but believes he will have a bigger role and opportunity to win a championship with the Lakers. Bazemore is betting on himself.

Steph was phenomenal throughout the playoffs and the WCF. His leadership throughout this year has been impressive, and it all leads to the Warriors' 6th finals in 8 years.

his averages: 24/7/7 on 59 TS% in 5 games

He becomes just the 14th superstar ever to lead his team 6 or more NBA finals (after Russell, Kareem, LeBron, Magic, West, Havlicek, Kobe, MJ, Shaq, Wilt, Cousy, Duncan, Elgin)

This was the first TNT conference finals in years that was thoroughly enjoyable to watch without having to mute the sound. Marv was a legend for years but he really needed to retire a while back.

Hopefully Kevin gets a good run as the lead guy for TNT's Conference Finals coverage going forward.

The Toronto Raptors’ 114-110 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday marked the end of the 2019 NBA Finals, but Draymond Green cautioned against those who thought it marked the end of his team’s dynasty, as well.

"Everybody thinks it's kind of the end of us," he said, per Reid Forgrave of CBS Sports. "That's just not smart. We're not done yet."

The consensus greatest shooter ever had a tough Game 5 (shooting-wise) but finished with a super solid scoring series overall, playing great defense, displaying excellent playmaking, being a hurricane off ball, and hitting timely shots in the clutch when his team needed them all playoffs long. Congrats on your 6th Finals appearance, Steph.

Just two years after a league-worst 15-50 record, the Golden State Warriors have reached the NBA Finals.

2.3k Upvotes

The Warriors played their first regular-season game at the Chase Center on October 24, 2019, in a 141–122 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. During their very next home game, on October 30 against the Phoenix Suns, fate struck: franchise favorite Steph Curry broke his hand in a collision, requiring surgery that was expected to keep him out of action for at least 3 months. This, along with Thompson's injury rehab keeping him out the entire year, sent the Warriors into a downward spiral from which they never recovered. Curry returned for one game on March 5 before the season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Warriors were not one of the 22 teams invited to the NBA Bubble on June 4, which ended their 2019–20 season with a league-worst record of 15–50.

Warriors remain undefeated in Western Conference playoff series in the Steve Kerr era, 18-0 record overall

2.0k Upvotes

In May 2014, Steve Kerr became head coach of the Warriors. Starting with the 2015 playoffs, as long as they make the playoffs, they have never lost a series before the finals, with an 18-0 series record vs other Western conference opponents.

Other interesting stats:

  • 8 were with KD, 10 without KD. (Technically 7 since KD missed parts of 2017 vs POR and 2019 vs HOU)

  • Warriors had home court advantage in all but 2 of these series - 2018 vs HOU and 2022 vs MEM

  • In the WCF, Warriors have swept twice (2017 and 19), won in 5 twice (15 and 22), and won in 7 twice (16 and 18)

  • In the West in general they have swept 5 teams, beat 7 teams in 5, beat 4 teams in 6 and beat 2 teams in 7.

  • In the Curry era they have won at least one road game in all 26 playoff series, starting from 2013 playoffs.

  • They have never lost any playoff series in less than 6 games
