Sweet-shooting Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors have the best record, an unmatched home-court advantage, and the understanding that means nothing now.
“We had a great home record and did some historic things, but that doesn’t get you any extra points in the playoffs,” Curry said.
The Warriors (67-15) were the NBA’s best this season. LeBron James has been on top before, though never in Cleveland. And don’t forget the Spurs, even though you have to look far down the West standings to find them.
