After going down 2-1 approaching Game 4, a lot of people thought the Golden State Warriors are done. During that time, it seemed LeBron James and Matthew Dellavedova of the Cleveland Cavaliers had them all figured out.

There were a lot of high expectations for the Chicago Bulls last season due to the returning Derrick Rose, and a number of offensive reinforcements, particularly Pau Gasol, whom the Bulls acquired from the Lakers during the off-season.
Unfortunately, in spite becoming the best offensive Bulls squad in the Tom Thibodeau era, Chicago still bowed to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the East semifinals.
