Will Golden State Warriors Or Cleveland Cavaliers Roll Through NBA Playoffs Undefeated?





Note: Updated after East finals Game 2.

While other teams have started 10-0 before losing a game, including last year's Cavaliers and the 2012 San Antonio Spurs -- who eventually lost a 2-0 lead in the conference finals to the Oklahoma City Thunder -- the top teams in both conferences have avoided a misstep long enough to legitimately pose the question of whether either one can become the first in NBA history to finish a postseason undefeated.
