NBA Western Conference History

 

The Western Conference Finals is one of two pro basketball conference series of the National Basketball Association. The winner of this best-of-seven series matchup will advance to The NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors have won the Western Conference Finals the last five years, which includes their 2019 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

This was the first time that a NBA team has captured five consecutive titles since the Boston Celtics accomplished the feat in the sixties.

However, Golden State's run ended in 2020 as the Los Angeles Lakers led by LeBron James advanced to the NBA Finals after eliminating the Denver Nuggets in five games of the Western Conference Finals.
