Steph Curry’s time beyond regulation prayer in probably the greatest common season video games ever wants a deep rewind
A deep rewind of a daily season sport? Have we run out of concepts? Nope, don’t fear, it’s simply that this common season sport dominated.
With Kevin Durant’s free company looming, the OKC Thunder have been roughly determined to show they have been title threats ASAP. Thus telling Durant: no want to go away, you’ll be able to attain nice success right here at residence! Along with your pal Russell Westbrook!
And the Thunder have been doing fairly nicely, on the time of this sport, late February, they have been the perfect rebounding crew within the league and the second highest scoring crew within the league.
Who was the best scoring crew? You’re actually gonna make me reply that? Nice, it was the Warriors. The very crew that was reportedly the highest contender to land Durant if he left OKC in free company.
Within the 2016 season, the reigning champion Golden State Warriors have been on a tear higher than all different tears earlier than it. They have been 52-5. That’s proper: in late February they’d solely misplaced 5 video games. Which suggests they have been on tempo to beat Michael Jordan’s ‘96 Bulls record-best season of 72 wins. The Warriors had already set the file for greatest begin by going 24-0, utterly destroying the earlier file of 15-0, held by Hakeem Olajuwon’s ‘94 Rockets.
So yeah, it’s a daily season sport, however there are stakes concerned. For the Thunder, a win would make them a title risk and will go a good distance in convincing KD to remain. For the Warriors, a win would recommend they don’t have any actual competitors on this league.
Oh, and should you’re a fan of disgustingly good taking pictures, Curry and Durant don’t disappoint.
An time beyond regulation battle, determined within the last seconds. Welcome to a second in historical past.
