Golden State Warroirs has qualified in the fifth consecutive NBA final after winning 119: 117 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Stephen Curry and Draymond Green combined to win the Portland victory. Both of them reached double-digit numbers in baskets, assists and dancing.

With this victory, Golden State Warriors was once again championed by the West Conference as well as qualifying in the final of this NBA season, where he would face either with Milwaukee Bucks, though with Toronto Raptors.

Golden State now joins the Boston Celtics - who had reached the ten consecutive NBA finals between 1957 and 1966 and had won nine of them - as the only teams that have managed to qualify for the five consecutive NBA finals. This is the 11th series of play-offs that Golden State wins.

"I hope this achievement will not be forgotten. Five consecutive finals ... this has not been achieved since the 1960s. It is not achieved for one reason: it is very, very difficult, "said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Curry finished the game with 37 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists, while Green contributed 18 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in the Warriors victory against Trail Blazers.

The match was 111: 111 at the end of regular time, but Curry found Greenin in a three-point position to give Warriors a win, only 39.6 seconds before the end of the extra time.

Curry and his younger brother, Sethi of Portland, write history in the NBA, becoming the only brothers facing each other in the final of an NBA conference.
