As the conference semifinals got rolling, the Warriors ousted the  NBA 2K17 MT Coins  and the East's top seed, the Cavs, swept away the Atlanta Hawks. The Raptors again took a series to the distance and held off the Heat to reach their first East finals. Out West, the Thunder scored a major upset by toppling their longtime rivals, the San Antonio Spurs, in six games.

Toronto gave Cleveland a tough series in the East finals, but the Raptors ultimately fell to the Cavs in six games, assuring Cleveland of a second straight Finals trip. Out West, an epic series took shape. The Thunder built a 3-1 series lead on the Warriors, but couldn't close the deal in Game 6. Golden State pulled away in Game 7 to win the series becoming the 10th team to win a postseason series after trailing 3-1 (and the third to do so in the conference finals).

The Warriors' ship seemed righted and momentum was on their side as they faced off in a Finals rematch with the Cavs. Golden State won three of the first four games in the series by an average of 19.6 points per game and held a 3-1 Finals edge. That margin had never been overcome in NBA history, yet the Cavs would not be deterred.You can see
