The Only NBA Teams in History to Reach the Finals Three or More Consecutive Times

Tonight the Golden State Warriors completed their sweep of the San Antonio Spurs to return to the NBA Finals for the third straight time.

What other NBA teams have reached the Finals three (or more) consecutive times?

  1. The New York Knicks: 1951 - 1953
  2. The Minneapolis / Los Angeles Lakers: 1952 - 1954, 1968 - 1970, 1982 - 1985, 1987 - 1989, 2000 - 2002, 2008 - 2010
  3. The Boston Celtics: 1957 - 1966, 1984 - 1987
  4. The Detroit Pistons: 1988 - 1990
  5. The Chicago Bulls: 1991 - 1993, 1995 - 1998
  6. The Miami Heat: 2011 - 2014
  7. The Golden State Warriors: 2015 - 2017
Presuming Cleveland knocks out the Celtics, they'll be the 8th team on the list, appearing in the Finals from 2015 - 2017 and making the Warriors-Cavs matchup the first time in NBA history where two teams met in three consecutive Finals.
