The Golden State Warriors cruised past the San Antonio Spurs, 129-115, on Monday night to complete a dominant four-game sweep in the N.B.A.’s Western Conference finals.
The Warriors, who advanced to their third straight finals, turned the first three rounds of the playoffs into exhibition matches. They became the first team in league history to start the playoffs with a 12-0 record and have not lost since April 10, their next-to-last game of the regular season.
Golden State will face the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Boston Celtics in the N.B.A. finals, starting June 1. The Cavaliers, the defending champions, have a 2-1 lead against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals and up until a slight hiccup had made very light work going 10 of 11 in the post season.
With two dominate well rested teams, with no injuries we are set for an epic NBA finals showdown. Lots has been said about the weak Eastern Conference throughout the season, however lets acknowledge that the Warrior’s in the West have yet to face a full strength team in the playoffs. If last years showdown was anything to go on, this year should be the best yet!
