Warriors’ 15th Straight Playoff Win Breaks North American Sports Record


The Golden State Warriors won their 15th consecutive playoff matchup Wednesday night by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-113 in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals.

The victory marks the record for the longest postseason win streak in the history of the four major North American sports leagues — the NBA, NHL, MLB and NFL.

Golden State can become the first NBA team ever to go undefeated in a single four-round playoff run if it beats Cleveland in Game 4 of the Finals on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena. The previous-best mark was set by the 2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers, who went 15-1 en route to an NBA Finals win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
