Cavs, Warriors make history

This wasn’t the first time the Cleveland Cavaliers got swiped 4 to non in an NBA Final and on their own home court.

Back in 2007 the San Antonio Spurs won against LeBron James’ team the Cleveland Cavaliers 83 to 82 on their own backyard. LeBron later on transferred to Miami Heat winning the 2012 and 2013 NBA finals against Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs respectively.

A decade later, the Cavaliers lost against the Golden State Warriors (GSW) with a final score of 85 to 108 on their home court again.

There were only 8 NBA final swipes recorded throughout the NBA from 1947 down to 2018, one being the recently concluded match between the Cavaliers and Warriors.

Boston Celtics against Minneapolis Lakers in 1959, 12 years later Milwaukee Bucks against the Baltimore Bullets (1971), Philadelphia 76ers against the Los Angeles Lakers (1983), Detroit Pistons against the LA Lakers in 1989, Houston Rockets against the Orlando Magic back in 1995, and LA Lakers in 2002 against New Jersey Nets.

After 43 long years later, the Golden State Warriors repeats history by being the only team in NBA history currently to get 2 swipes in an NBA final – the first being was in 1975 against the Washington Bullets.

On the other hand, the Cleveland Cavaliers also made NBA history as the only team who lost twice in their own home court. (Dave Achondo)
