Golden State (42-40 in the regular season) became the first No. 8 seed to beat a No. 1 in a seven-game series, and took out a 67-win Mavs team that was the clear-cut title favorite. What's more, coach Don Nelson got revenge on his former team and bitter enemy, Mavs owner Mark Cuban, and the Warriors won their first playoff series in 16 seasons.
