Chicago

Bulls

Golden State

Warriors

Stephen Curry and his merry band have blitzed through the NBA this season, shattering records and threatening the Bulls’ season-wins mark. So who would come out on top? The Bulls were lockdown defenders, but Curry has proven he can rainbow threes over anyone–a key skill in a league that increasingly relies on perimeter shooting. The Warriors play faster and flashier than the Bulls, and they’re even more fun to watch. Advantage: Warriors. In seven.
