This product includes all game parts.
Last year, the Golden State Warriors won a record 73 games. This time, they added NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant and won their first 15 playoff games before avenging last year’s Finals loss to Cleveland in five games. It was the third straight Warriors-Cavs Finals – A “Threematch” – in what could be called the NBA’s Year of the Three.
In a season of record three-point shooting (teams averaged 27 attempts and 9.7 made), Cleveland set records with 25 made in a game during the season and 24 made in the Finals and Stephen Curry set an individual record with 13 made in a game.
Only the Warriors could overshadow Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, the NBA’s MVP and leading scorer who set the record with 42 triple doubles, breaking the 55-year-old mark set by Oscar Robertson. Until Westbrook this season, Robertson was the only guard to lead his team in rebounding. Westbook led the Thunder with 10.7 rebounds per game and was in the NBA’s top 10 in that category.
This was the first season that 10 different players scored at least 50 points in a game. Phoenix guard Devin Booker became the sixth player in NBA history to score 70 in a game … Houston’s James Harden (29.1 ppg) was the first player with 2,000 points, 900 assists and 600 rebounds in a season … Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo became the first player to rank in the NBA’s top 20 in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks … San Antonio won 61 games and five other teams won at least 51.
Strat-O-Matic basketball card sets have 12 players per team. Injuries and performance force almost all NBA teams to use more than that. The extra players are here. Some are role players who filled in when regulars were hurt. But this set also includes stars who played considerably less than a full season because of injuries.
