More ‘offs Notes

June 29, 2018

In 1975, while the Golden State Warriors swept the pretty big favorites, the Washington Bullets in the NBA Final Series, the first year Washington Capitals won just 8 games. (8 wins-67 losses- 5 ties).

These 43 years later, again the Warriors sweep the NBA Final series, this time vs the Cleveland Cavaliers, but there was Washington glory, as the Capitals won games (2-5) vs a first year team that did incredibly well, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, to win their first title.

To “CAP” it off, the Capitals title was achieved 40 years to the date after the lone other Washington winter sports crown, won by the Bullets on June 7, 1978.
