Warriors can join elite Michael Jordan-Bulls with this NBA Finals return stat

Published:

The Warriors, as a team, have a likelihood to affix some elite company on Thursday night.

If Golden State can close out the Western Conference finals series against the Dallas Mavericks, the Warriors will turn into the primary franchise to succeed in the NBA Finals six times in eight seasons for the reason that Michael Jordan-Scottie Pippien Chicago Bulls from 1991-98.

Ah, yes. One other link between the 2 “dynasty” teams. 

Earlier this week, Steph Curry had his seventh 30-point game of the playoffs. Jordan and Lakers superstar LeBron James are the one players with that many 30-point games in a single postseason at age 34 or older, each winning Finals MVP within the seasons they did. 

But before any Finals MVP talk, the Warriors should make it there first. 

And with Game 5 on their territory at Chase Center, many odds are pointing within the Dubs’ favor. 

Home-court advantage hasn’t failed the Warriors just yet, despite Chase Center hosting the NBA playoffs for the primary time ever since becoming the Warriors’ latest home in 2019. 

Golden State finished with a 31-10 home record within the regular season, behind only the Phoenix Suns, who went 32-9. 

 

And of their current postseason run, the Warriors are an ideal 8-0 at home. 

Also, the Warriors are 9-3 in potential closeout games at home for the reason that 2015 playoffs, essentially the most wins and losses within the league over that span.

But everyone knows the clutch young star that Luka Dončić is during crunch time moments. 

Nonetheless, there’s still a Game 5 to be played. The Warriors are only one win away from the NBA Finals, and it could all occur Thursday night.
