GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS: 10 Defining Moments of the Warriors' season


       


   An American Professional Basketball Team, The Golden State Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association(The NBA) as a member club of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. This Golden State Warriors team based in Oakland, California and established in 1946 as the Philadelphia Warriors based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a member of BAA(Basketball Association Of America). Later, the Golden State Warriors won the First 1947 BAA Finals, which is now considered as the First NBA Championship.

  The franchise relocated to the San Franciso Bay Area in 1962 and in 1971, it was renamed as the San Franciso Warriors. This is later changed to California's State Nickname, The Golden State. Since 1972, the team's home court has been Oracle Arena in Oakland.

These are the 10 Defining Moments Of The Warriors' Season:

10.) President Barack Obama Previews The Day:

          Anything is a pretty big deal when the President Of United States enters into it. On Wednesday night, a tweet has been posted from the Obama's Official Tweeter account previewing the action that was about to take place.

                                                       — President Obama (@POTUS) April 14, 2016
  President Obama tweeted congrats to the Warriors team after they win the final match.


       Congrats to the @Warriors, a great group of guys on and off the court. If somebody had to break the Bulls' record, I'm glad it's them.

9.) Warriors Breaks Record:

        The Lakers and Golden State Warriors match ended up about the same time. But the Bryant's performance dominated the discussion on Twitter  nearly to the view that only a few noticed Golden State had just marked an incredible feat.
    
        The Warriors just set a record for regular-season wins and NOBODY CARES. Amazing.

8.) Stephen Curry Tops 400 3-pointers For The Season:

       Last year,  Golden State Warrior MVP guard Stephen Curry set a new record for his 286 3-pointers made in a season.

On Wednesday Night, Stephen Curry needs other 8 trifectas to set a new record of 400 for this season. It seems to be a pretty big task even for Stephen Curry. His amazing effort made him to hit seven in the first half alone.
     
      I anticipated some scenarios, but none included Curry getting to 400 by halftime.

7.) LeBron James congratulates Bryant, the Warriors and Curry:

      After the match, the Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James recorded a congratulating video for the Warriors star Bryant on his performance, the Warriors on their season and Curry on his 3-point skill.  

                                                  .@KingJames sends his congrats to the 
                                            @Warriors and @StephenCurry30, as well as                                                                 @KobeBryant on his final NBA  game                                                                                      https://t.co/jWcr26Neoy

6.) Warriors prevail in double overtime against the Celtics:

       Till the Warriors December game agaist the Boston Celtics, most of their impressive wins are lacked drama. But the 24th game of the Golden State Warriors proved to be more dramatic. Untill this Friday Night classic, the Warriors didn't look beatable. However, Golden State pushed things to overtime, Twice. The Warriors ended up squeaking by the Celtics 124-119.

“Now I can admit I’m tired,” Curry said after the game.

5.) Warriors bounce back against the Spurs:


        The Golden State Warriors has two more games with the Spurs, the second game will be held at AT&T Center, where Spurs were undeatable and the Warriors didn't won a regular season game in San Antonio since 1997. In the first game, the Warriors were able to beat the Spurs rather easily, marking the best record in the NBA and home court throughout the playoffs. Three days later, they finally won on the Spurs’ home court, becoming the first opposing team to do so all season.

4.) Bucks hand the Warriors their first loss:


         It seems that Curry wasn’t kidding about being tired. The very next day, a lethargic Warriors team, playing their seventh straight road game, faced the Milwaukee Bucks. Probably, it isn’t so surprising that the rebuilding Bucks handed Golden State its first loss of the season. The Bucks defeated the Warriors 121-112, ending their chances at besting the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers’ 33-game win streak.

3.) Kerr Returns, and the Warriors Continue to Win:

       On January 23rd, Jackson was replaced by Steve Kerr,  who returned to the spotlight, guiding the Warriors to a 122-110 win over the Indiana Pacers. The NBA ruled that the Kerr will marked with 39 wins and 4 losses that happened under Walton's Watch, i.e, Walton was the NBA’s Western Conference coach of the month for December despite officially having a 0-0 record. 

2.) Impossible Curry shot stuns the Oklahoma City Thunder:


      In front of home crowd, The Oklahoma City Thunder were about to win due to 12 points in the fourth quater. Therefore, the Warriors made a last-minute push and the Warriors team member, Andre Iguodala tied the game with two free throws with just 0.7 seconds left in regulation. This made audience more anxiety. 

    So, the Warriors and Thunder went to overtime. There, almost as if he were trying to make Jackson’s point that nobody should try to emulate his game, Curry made an overtime game-winner that no other player in basketball history could have pulled off.

1.) Luke Walton steps in and the win streak begins:

      The returning champions began the season at a disadvantage, the Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was recovering from back surgery. Last year's NBA Best team, the Warriors would now be run by assistant Luke Walton, best known for being an end-of-the-bench punchline during his playing career. It’s hard to say how much of a difference a head coach makes in a team this talented, but certainly Walton must get some credit for the fact that the Warriors didn’t lose in the first 24 games of the season, the best start in NBA history.
