NBA Wrapping Up Season of Records

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors

Please take a look at my recently published Guardian Liberty Voice article:

I wrote an article recently for the Guardian Liberty Voice again. This one was for the month of April, and it was on a familiar subject - the Golden State Warriors and their pursuit of the record for winningest NBA franchise in history. Also, it was about the San Antonio Spurs, who are possibly about to achieve some history of their own, either by tying the 1985-86 Boston Celtics for the best home record ever at 40-1 or, if they manage to win both of their remaining home games, by becoming the first team in NBA history to complete a perfect, undefeated regular season at home. But they will have to get past Golden State tomorrow, and then Oklahoma City on Tuesday in order to do so.

These two teams have been far and away the two best teams this season, and it is hard to imagine that they will not continue this level of dominance once the playoffs start. That is, until they meet each other, which seems likely. If that should happen, it would happen in the Western Conference Finals, and the winning would likely be favored to go on to win another NBA championship. These two teams have won the last two NBA titles, so that would make it three in a row, if one of these two teams wins it again this season.

Obviously, nothing is certain in sports. The Golden State Warriors looked like they were on pace to crush the record for much of the season, but once the pressure came on in the last few weeks, they started to lose games that they likely would not have lost earlier in the season. That is likely a glimpse of the pressure that they are facing, and verification that these guys are actually human, even if they are playing on such a level that defies normal expectations and limitations.
