The 2016 NBA Playoffs are finally underway. The Golden State Warriors are the clear favourites to go back-to-back after amassing an unprecedented 73 wins during the regular season, with Steph Curry hitting a record 400 three-pointers!
Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are firing (like they have been for most of the season) at the right time for the Warriors. They have now sealed the opening two games against James Harden’s Rockets and will look to add to that tally when they travel to Houston on Thursday.
In other opening week highlights, the most fancied Eastern Conference team, LeBron James’s Cavaliers, will host Detroit after winning the first game by five points. Back in the West, San Antonio is the clear favourite to win the second match of their seven game series against the Grizzlies.
