The Golden State Warriors are on the brink of securing back-to-back championships for the first time in franchise history after going up 3-1 against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. 

Friday night's 108-97 win at the Quicken Loans Arena means they'll successfully retain their title with a win in game six back on their home floor. 

The chances of that happening are pretty high as no team in NBA history has lost a Finals series with a 3-1 lead.

The Warriors will be worthy champions after a record-breaking year where they dominated the league from start to finish. 

After winning a record 73 games in the regular season and smashing multiple three-point records in the process, the win in Cleveland also saw the Dubs set a new Finals milestone. 

When Stephen Curry hit a 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter, the Warriors broke the NBA record for threes made in an NBA Finals game, connecting on 17 on the night. 

The previous record was held by the San Antonio Spurs who, coincidentally, also set the mark against a LeBron James team. Gregg Popovich's men made 16 in 2013 against the Miami Heat in game three of the Finals.

The Bay Area franchise hit 15 in game two against the Cavs and are capable of increasing that mark in the close out game at the Oracle Arena.

The historic numbers are great but Steve Kerr and his team know that they mean nothing without the ring and will be determined to get the job done back in Oakland on Monday to cap off one of the best single seasons by any franchise in the league. 

They are within touching distance of cementing their greatness and placing themselves among the best teams to have ever graced the hardwood.
