Warriors’ collapse brings back ‘3-1’ jokes

April 16, 2019 GMT

The Golden State Warriors surrendered a 31-point lead Monday in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers the largest in NBA playoff history. A few years back, they blew a 3-1 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers to lose the 2016 NBA Finals.

And boy, people couldn’t help themselves.

Search “Warriors 3-1” on Twitter and you’ll notice the same type of joke:
