The NBA finals rematch–explained in tweets

In a fantastic game between two powerhouse teams, the Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder and are heading to the NBA finals (Bernie Sanders was at the game!). Now, legends Steph Curry and Lebron James will get another chance to battle it out on the court.

The Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers last year and it's the 13th time the teams have met in back-to-back NBA finals.

How is Dub Nation preparing?

Well, they played crazy well on Monday, so they're probably ready to go.

And Steph Curry is all positive:

"[I knew] we were a mature basketball team that tried our best not to listen to the noise when we were down 3-1. ... In that locker room, the talk was positive."

Everyone is pretty excited (including Steph's wife, Ayesha).

And maybe a little competitive.

Are the Cavs up for the fight?


Well, one Cavs fan wasn't convinced the Warriors would even make it...so he ate his shirt.

Though the Warriors are favored to win, it's really up to whoever fights the hardest on Thursday.

Let's go team! Throw the ball! Do the things!
