The Warriors won 73 games this year, the best regular season in NBA history. San Antonio finished with 67 victories, tied for the seventh-most of all time. The Thunder are one win away from eliminating them both from the playoffs in back-to-back series. In my mind, that would be a much more impressive feat than winning a championship.
Thunder on verge of taking out 2 teams w/ a combined 140 reg-season Ws. Obviously that's never happened, no 2 teams ever even won 140 before— Mark Van Deusen (@LucidSportsFan) May 25, 2016
Championships happen every year, but a third club consecutively knocking off the two squads who combined for the most wins of all time is truly historic.
However, if Stephen Curry is as good as I think he is, this series isn't over yet.
