The Golden State Warriors stand on the brink of a fifth consecutive appearance in the NBA Finals and the chance to win a third straight championship. All they have to do is close out the Portland Trail Blazers in Game Four of the Western Conference Finals on Monday night. No NBA team has appeared in more than four consecutive NBA Finals series since the Boston Celtics ended a streak of 10 in a row with the 1966 Finals, as recounted by the San Francisco Chronicle, with only four teams other than the Warriors accomplishing the feat of making the Finals four years in a row since 1966. Golden State will try to punch that ticket in the game that will live stream from the Rose Garden.

The matchup gets underway at 6 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time at the 19,980-seat Moda Center at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon, on Monday, May 20.
That start time is 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 8 p.m. Central. In the United Kingdom, the Blazers-Warriors Game Two tipoff time will be 2 a.m. British Summer Time on Tuesday, May 21.
The Warriors also made a bit of history in Game Three, rallying from 13 points down to win the game — making them the first team in NBA playoff history to win back-to-back games in which they trailed by at least 13, according to the NBA site.
The Warriors will be missing three of their star players for the potential decider, with Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, and Andre Iguodala all expected to be in street clothes for the game, according to SB Nation.
As for Portland, they must win not only to stay alive, but will have to accomplish something no NBA team has ever done — come back to win a playoff series after falling behind 3-0.
“Obviously it’s frustrating,” Portland star Damian Lillard told the NBA. “You look at the numbers and there’s a slim chance of you winning the series like that, but we’ve got a lot to play for. Obviously, you never know when the first time it’s going to happen. We could be the first team to do it.”
