The Golden State Warriors have hit 73, but there’s still work to be done.
Beating the ’95-’96 Chicago Bulls will mean nothing if the Dubs aren’t able to add a second-straight NBA championship, and their title defense begins on Saturday afternoon against the Houston Rockets.
Golden State didn’t have much trouble with James Harden and the Rockets during the regular season, winning all three games by a combined 37 points. Nevertheless, this is the postseason, and nothing can be taken for granted.
