Golden State Warriors First to Five Finals in Row Since 1966 Boston Celtics
PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Golden State Warriors have earned their fifth straight trip to the NBA Finals after beating the Portland Trail Blazers 119-117 in overtime of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night.
The Warriors made it happen Monday night by coming back from a double-digit second-half deficit for the third straight game, this time crawling all the way out of a 17-point hole.
Once again, it was star guard Stephen Curry who led the Warriors on Monday night. The two-time MVP finished with a triple-double, racking up 37 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. It was the fifth straight postseason game that Curry scored at least 30 points, the longest such streak of his career.
Golden State now waits the winner of the eastern conference series which continues tonight here on ESPN 99 One with the Milwaukee Bucks leading the Toronto Raptors 2 games to one. Our coverage begins at 6:30.
