The Golden State Warriors have a history for the fifth year in a row the NBA finals to achieve. The band from California won Monday (local time) after extra time a little of the Portland Trail Blazers: 117-119.
By the hard-won victory at the Moda Center in Portland came to the Warriors on an unbridgeable 4-0-lead in the best-of-sevenserie of the finals in the Western Conference.
The Boston Celtics were the only other team that has ever managed to five times in a row to the NBA finals. That formation put out a record with ten consecutive finaleplekken between 1957 and 1966. The Celtics conquered in that period, nine titles.
“I hope that our performance is underestimated, or that people are passing,” said coach Steve Kerr of the Warriors. “This has not happened since the sixties. And not without reason, because it is just very, very difficult.”
