It is their rival, the Cleveland Cavaliers who is in the top spot. Tying up to their performance beyond the arc is one of their toughest barricades in the west, San Antonio Spurs. Cleveland averaged 39 % while the Spurs and Warriors both with 38.4. It is quite close at first glance, but small decimal values in terms of comparing averages are relatively huge.
That explains why these three teams were considered to be the best in the league. In fact, the Warriors faced the San Antonio Spurs in the western conference finals.
Kevin Durant finally won his first championship after a decade in NBA. He finished the game with 39 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists and he took home the Finals MVP Award. While his buddy, Stephen Curry managed to collect 34 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists.
But it was Andre Iguodala who sparked the Warriors of the bench as he finished the game with 20 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. It was a big help for them as Klay Thompson was struggling in the game and finished with 11 points only.
Starting today, Kevin Durant will be a forever villain for the Cavalier fans. Not because he is a dirty player but he just basically shattered the hearts of millions of Cleveland fans.

The Golden State Warriors met their former assistant coach, new Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton in Las Vegas on October 15 at T-Mobile Arena.
Klay Thompson led the Warriors by 24 points to defeat the Lakers, 112-107. Kevin Durant has 17 points.
The Lakers were getting blown away by the Warriors in the second quarter. Lead had ballooned to 30 points. Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and David West did not even play.
The Lakers was outscored 54-30 in the paint and made assists on 29 of their 44 made field goals. Nick Young led the Lakers with 17 while No. 2 overall pick Brandon Ingram scored 12 off the bench. Lou Williams and Metta World Peace did not play also.
The purple and gold made a late fourth quarter comeback. The boys stayed focused and capitalized when it counted, unfortunately still lost to the Warriors by five.
I agree on Luol Deng: “This is why you have preseason. … You learn from things like this.”
How they play is what meaningful. A preseason win or loss means nothing. Preseason is important to get better and improve and get the players ready and evaluated.
The Lakers still have two preseason games left. They will face the Warriors again. Then the Phoenix Suns will test the new age Lakers before the regular season tips off.
I hope the Lakers will win at least one game against the Warriors.
It has been a shocking news for Oklahoma City Thunder Fans, after Kevin Durant joined the bandwagon and left them just to join the powerhouse Golden State Warriors. The Warriors now, are much more lethal as a contender than before. The Big 5 for the Warriors consists of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green and of course.. Durant.
The fans were not happy with what happened and were disappointed with Durant’s decision.
Here are some of what I found about fans reacting on Durant’s Instagram:
Here is Durant’s essay posted on The Players Tribune. A message on ending his 9-year stint with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsAfter all, it is still Durant’s decision. We couldn’t blame him for leaving, but it is unfair to go to a team who has a lot of star players in their prime and lastly, going to a team who just eliminated them last playoffs just to win a championship, is much worse than not winning a ring.
This Father’s day, let us take a look on some dads of some NBA Stars:
Happy Father’s Day!
We look at some of the famous peoples apparels and fads at Game 5 of the NBA Finals 2016
Golden State Warriors got their third loss of this NBA season, after a close game versus the Denver Nuggets that ended 110-112 for the home team.
The loss snapped their 7 consecutive wins streak since when the Stephen Curry-less Warriors played Dallas Mavericks , December 30.
In this game, Warriors star Stephen Curry scored 38 points for his team, and the another Splash Brother, Klay Thompson added 17. Former North Carolina Tar Heel forward, Harrison Barnes made 18 points for the away team. Australian center Andrew Bogut led the team in rebounds (7) and Curry led the assist bank for the team.
Danilo Gallinari scored 28 points, including his free throw at the end of the game which secured the victory for the Nuggets. Darrell Arthur led the Nuggets in rebounds with 11.
The Warriors are scheduled to play a home game against the Lakers tomorrow, and The Nuggets will host the traveling Miami Heat, this Saturday.
Klay Thompson, who was diagnosed with a concussion after suffering an injury during Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals on May 27, has completed the NBA’s concussion protocol and has been cleared to play for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.
It is no secret that Klay Thompson will be a big factor on this game if the Warriors want to win the Championship, he needs to be there and play for them. Thompson won’t have to worry because there will be no James Harden to play for the Cavs, but it would still be tough for him because J.R. Smith is playing out of his mind right now. We all know though that Harden is not Smith. So expect Klay Thompson to play more aggressive in the finals. The Splash Brother’s will be ready.
Geez can’t wait, Let’s get this finals started already!

“OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is expected to play in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, according to coach Steve Kerr.“He’s doing well,” Kerr said after practice Saturday at the team’s facility.
“I’m anticipating he’s going to be there.”
Klay Thompson was accidentally hit by a knee form Trevor Ariza after he tried to pump fake, that eventually resulted to concussion during the Game 5 of Western Conference Finals. Thompson was given clearance during the game but he needed stitches but was just in the sideline. Thompson needs to be cleared from concussion,
the Golden State Warriors and the NBA will surely come up with a decision before Thursday June 4, 2015.
