More than three decades after the last NBA championship, the NBA is back.
In a sport that’s been defined by dominance by one team, it’s no longer a matter of whether the Warriors beat the Clippers.
It’s a matter, again, of who wins and loses.
In the final five games of the 2016-17 season, the Warriors were up by a combined 13 points.
And if you don’t believe me, just look at the standings.
The Warriors were 1-1 heading into the Finals against the Los Angeles Clippers.
That was a game they won by an average of 8.8 points.
The Clippers went on to win that series, with the Warriors winning Game 7.
In 2018, the Golden State Warriors had a record of 33-2 and a record that didn’t even qualify as a Finals team, but they beat the Losers in six games.
The 2018 Clippers had a team record of 31-8.
They beat the Warriors in six straight games to win the series.
The 2019 Warriors had another record of 34-8 and a series record of 12-1.
The 2020 Clippers were up 3-1 in Game 5 and outplayed the Warriors by three in a four-game series.
Then the 2019 Warriors were down 2-1 with no one on the court and trailed by five in Game 6.
The 2017 Warriors were 3-2 with no player on the floor and led by seven.
The 2016 Clippers were down 1-0 and led 5-0 before the Warriors stormed back.
The 2022 Warriors were outmatched and down by three with one second remaining in the third quarter of Game 4.
They led by 17 points and held the Clippers to a single point in the final 10 seconds.
The 2021 Clippers were 3 and outmatched in Game 4, led by 10.
The 2000 Clippers were 2-2 in Game 3 and trailed the Warriors for nearly four minutes.
The 1999 Clippers were out of the playoffs.
The 1998 Clippers were tied 2-all with one minute left and trailing by five points with one to play.
The 1997 Clippers were 0-1, leading by nine.
The 1996 Clippers were 1 in Game 1, trailing by eight.
The 1995 Clippers were 4-2 on the season and had two players score in double figures.
The 1994 Clippers were the NBA’s best team and had the NBA record for most wins in a single season at 27.
The 1993 Warriors were the best team in NBA history, but lost to the Lakers in seven games.
And the 1990 Warriors had the best record in NBA History at 35-9.
They were the second-best team in history.
The 1992 Warriors were a different story.
They weren’t in the playoffs, but had a great record at 23-9, including a 24-6 record in the first month of the season.
They had two games of double digits, including an overtime win over the Thunder in Game 7 of the NBA finals.
And they had four players score at least 20 points, including the league’s top five scoring duo: Tim Duncan with 27, Shaquille O’Neal with 22, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with 21 and Magic Johnson with 20.
And then they went on the road to beat the New York Knicks in the finals.
They also had a season-high 28 assists.
It was an amazing season for the Warriors.
The NBA is still defining the Finals, and it’s a very different game now than it was when the series began.
So if you’re a Warriors fan, or just interested in the Warriors, here are some things you might not have known before the season: The Warriors have one of the best shooting guards in the NBA in Draymond Green.
Green has been a superstar since he was a kid.
His jumper has been one of his greatest gifts, and he’s always been a threat to score in the clutch.
He was a triple-double guy in the Finals and was one of only three players to score 100 points or more.
He’s been a triple double guy in eight of his 10 Finals appearances.
He scored 30 points against the Cavaliers in Game 2 of the 2017 Finals, putting up 25 points and eight rebounds.
Green was one step ahead of LeBron James in that series.
James has the most triple-doubles in Finals history and scored 27 points in that game.
The only other player in the history of the series to have more than three triple-digits was Magic Johnson.
Green also has one of those unique shooting touch, which allows him to hit 3s, jump shots, dunk shots, steal shots, drive to the basket, and do everything else you’d expect from a player who plays the game like a center.
But he’s also one of a handful of players to have an uncanny ability to score inside and score from 3 as well.
Green is also the only player in Finals History to average at least 12 points per game in all three categories.
He averaged 20.7 points per contest in the
