Last season’s NBA Finals was an epic battle between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics.
The Warriors ended up winning that series, of course, and were once again crowned the best team in the league.
Since then, they have experienced a serious rough patch while the Celtics have only gotten stronger.
Boston is now seen as the NBA’s toughest team while the Warriors are still trying to find their footing.

On Thursday night, Stephen Curry and his Warriors will return to the TD Garden in Boston to take on the Celtics.
They are hoping to once again experience some of the magic they created during last year’s championship.
With a big win under their belt in Boston, the Warriors could start a bounce-back that takes them into the second half of the season.
The Warriors are actually doing better than they have been and are currently the 6th seed in the West.
They clearly want to climb even higher.
As for the Celtics, they are the best team in the association right now with a league-best 33-12 record.
They are seen as the favorites to make the NBA Finals again while the Warriors are going to have to fight hard to make the playoffs.
Some people thought a new rivalry was born last season during the Finals.
But since then, one team has surged while another has suffered and struggled.
No one should ever count the Warriors out – there is time for them to get it together and come back strongly.
Will that comeback start on Thursday night at the arena where they found their latest championship victory?
Will a rivalry be reborn with this game or will the Celtics continue to pull away from the Warriors?
