The Warriors staked their claim as best NBA team of all time by going 16-1 in the playoffs and capturing the NBA title. With a lineup that includes two league MVPs, two other stars and quality role players, there hasn’t been a team like these Warriors ever before.
Could the 2016-17 Warriors beat the team that’s widely considered as the best ever, though? The 1995-96 Bulls featured the best player in the history of the league in Michael Jordan, greats in Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman and a number of effective role players around them.
Green picks up his third personal foul with two minutes left in the first half, then gets hit with a technical foul for arguing with official Monty McCutchen. Oh boy.
There’s a Draymond sucks! chant circulating through the arena.
LeBron James is now over halfway to surpassing Michael Jordan in all-time postseason points, with 15. He is currently shooting 5 of 6 from the field and 5 of 8 from the free throw line.
A controversial personal foul (plus a technical) won’t go over well in Boston. The Celtics already have 15 personal fouls, and the Cavs lead 52-31.
The Cavs aren’t messing around in Game 5, leading 43-27 in Boston after the first quarter. They are shooting 16 of 23 from the field and have set a franchise record for most points scored in a playoff quarter. LeBron James has a game-high 11 points, while Kevin Love has 10. Marcus Smart has a team-high six points apiece for the Celtics.
