Warriors tie NBA record with 13th straight playoff win
The Warriors joined the 1988-89 Los Angeles Lakers and 2016-17 Cavaliers as the only other teams to accomplish the feat. Golden State is the first team to win 13 consecutive playoff games in a single postseason.
After a brief swoon in March, Golden State has looked virtually unbeatable over the past couple of months, winning 28 of its last 29 contests overall.
A nine-day break appeared to have little affect on the Warriors in Game 1, as Golden State also tied an NBA record for the fewest turnovers in a Finals contest.
Should they manage to take Game 2 at Oracle, the Warriors would become the first team in NBA history to win 14 straight postseason contests.
