The Golden State Warriors were forced to navigate their way through the 2018 postseason as the second seed in the Western Conference but that did not stop them from winning their second consecutive NBA title.
Despite having to win a Game 7 on the road against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals last year, the Warriors do not appear to be that concerned with earning the No. 1 seed this coming postseason.
Prior to their game against the Heat on Wednesday, (7:30 p.m. ET — Watch on FuboTV with NBA League Pass add-on ), Stephen Curry was asked about that situation and admitted that it's a nice luxury to have, but also feels like Golden State 'can win anywhere.'
The Warriors currently find themselves with the best record in the Western Conference at 43-17 as they hold a one-game lead over the Denver Nuggets for that spot. Golden State is definitely clicking on all cylinders right now with victories in seven of their last nine games and the Warriors entered their business trip to Florida by coming off a 121-110 win over the Charlotte Hornets earlier this week.
Obtaining the top seed is certainly something that is a nice luxury considering the adversity that Golden State faced a season ago. After dealing with injuries to Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson down the stretch of the regular season in 2018, it proved to be a tough road as the team was forced to win a Game 7 in Houston to advance to the NBA Finals rather than having the ability to finish things off at Oracle Arena.
