We Undefeated

The Warriors enter the Finals with a perfect 12-0 record this postseason, the first team ever to accomplish that feat since the NBA switched to their current playoff format in 2003. The 1988-89 and 2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers each entered the NBA Finals undefeated, with 11-0 records.

 

Ahead of the pack

The Warriors (118.3) and Cavaliers (116.8) rank first and second in the playoffs in points scored per game. No other team is averaging more than 109 points.

 

Making History

Golden State finished with 67 wins in the 2016-17 regular season, tied for the seventh-most in NBA history. They are the first team in league history to win 64+ games in three consecutive seasons.

 

Advantage Warriors

Cleveland and Golden State have met 19 times since the start of the 2014-15 regular season, including their two NBA Finals matchups. Golden State has won 11 of those 19 games, outscoring Cleveland 103.6-97.3 in those matches. The teams split the regular season series this year, with the home team winning each match.
