The Warriors are a professional basketball team that’s part of the NBA’s Western Conference Pacific Division, and their home court is the Chase Center, located in San Francisco, California.

Golden State Warriors Brief History

The Warriors were founded back in 1946 in Philadelphia, and the team relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1962.

At first, they were called the San Francisco Warriors, but then, in 1971, they switched it to Golden State, with the goal of including the full state of California.

The team won their first NBA title ever, back in 1947, then another couple of titles in 1956 and 1975.

But despite turning into a playoffs team thanks to the “Run TMC” (Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin) at the turn of the century, they weren’t able to win any championships for 20 years.

The fortunes of the team changed drastically with the arrival of superstar Stephen Curry and teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, allowing the Warriors to conquer another three titles.

Golden State Warriors Rivalries

The only known, direct rivalry for this team is versus the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Although these teams have been playing each other since the ‘70s when the Cavs joined the league, this rivalry heated up during the 2014-2015 season.

That was the first of four consecutive NBA Finals between the two teams.

Before this, no other two teams had faced at the Finals more than twice.

 

Now, out of these Finals, the Warriors were able to take 3 titles while the Cavs took one.

2015 Finals

The Cavs entered the Finals without Kevin Love, who got injured during the first round of the postseason, and they missed Kyrie Irving during the first game if the Finals due to injury!

This led them to lose that first match, but a great defense from Matthew Dellavedova and LeBron James allowed Cleveland to take the second match in overtime.

Then, Lebron, carrying the team on his shoulders, managed to lead the Cavs to a second win, allowing his team to lead 2-1.

But King James’s efforts were pointless, as the Warriors went on to win the next 3 matches in a row to win the 2015 NBA title.

2016 Finals

This is the second straight season both teams were meeting each other at the NBA Finals, and it was time for revenge for the Cavs!

The Warriors managed to take games one and two in Oakland, and then the Cavs took game 3 in Cleveland, but Golden State won game four on the road.

At this point, everybody believed the Warriors were headed to a second straight NBA championship.

But then the series moved back to California, and James and Irving put up an amazing show, scoring 41 points each to lead the Cavaliers to a victory that kept them alive in the series.

Next, the series moved back to Cleveland for game six, and LeBron continued to perform at his best, scoring another 41 points to lead his team to a decisive third victory in the series, and forcing a seventh match.

In fact, LeBron was the second player just behind Shaquille O’Neal to score 40 points in back-to-back Finals matches.

And game 7 was definitely what fans of both teams were expecting: a neck-to-neck show, with both teams tied at 89 points each during the fourth quarter.

At that point, LeBron blocked a shot from Andre Iguodala, to then allow teammate Kyrie Irving to score the winning 3-pointer, allowing the Cavs to acquire their first and only title in the history of the franchise.
