>> The Golden State Warriors, once again, proving just about anything's possible. The defending NBA champ's heading back to the finals, after putting away the Oklahoma City Thunder, Monday night in game seven of the Western Conference finals. Coming back from a three one deficit in the series after looking elimination in the face.
Just in case you need a reminder who we're talking about, this is the club that won a record 73 regular season games, trumping Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls. They notched up the best start to a season of any pro sports team ever, going 24 and zero. And by February 27th, they'd clinched the earliest playoff spot in history.
That's before we even talk about this guy. In leading his team back to the finals Monday night, Steph Curry set a new record, hitting 32 three pointers in a seven game series. Curry and Clay Thompson leading the Warriors to a 96 to 88 win in Oakland. Many had written the Warriors off for this season after they fell behind two games in the series.
Just nine other NBA teams have ever come back to win a series after being down three to one. The Warriors now face the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James, who they beat in last year's finals. One surprise guest in Oakland, Bernie Sanders. A spokesman for the candidate noting before the game that Golden State had been down three one in the match up, saying many experts said a win was mathematically impossible, but that they were on the verge of a major comeback in California.
