It was supposed to be a tough test for the Warriors. They had just come off a shocking 18-point loss to the Detroit Pistons and were traveling to Cleveland for a Finals rematch.
It was the start of what many believed would be the Warriors’ toughest stretch this season: at Cleveland, at Chicago, home against Indiana and home against San Antonio.
Not only did the Warriors go 4-0, but they barely broke a sweat; crushing the Cavs, Bulls and Spurs by a combined 95 points. This was supposed to be the Warriors’ stumbling block as they pursued the ’95-96 Bulls’ 72-10 mark. Instead, it was further proof that the Warriors are far and away better than everyone else in the Association.
So why even bother watching, right? Well, it looks like that’s exactly what’s happening league-wide.
