So last night, the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors were trailing in a game. And not just for a brief moment either. They trailed by a lot – 23 points at one point, to be exact. But then they remembered they were the Golden State Warriors, who have yet to lose a game all season so far, and stormed back to take the lead late in the fourth quarter, and ultimately defeated the Los Angeles Clippers by the score of 124-117.
This was clearly a big game in the NBA, as it featured two of the best teams in the Western Conference, added with the elements of the Warriors yet to lose and that the Clippers may or may not have called the 2014-2015 Warriors team “lucky.”
It actually turned out that this game was so big, that it was the most talked about NBA game on social media so far this season. And not only that, it accumulated more tweets than any NFL game from this past weekend. The Patriots vs. Giants game was the most popular NFL tilt from Sunday, and it tallied 197,468 total tweets. Warriors vs. Clippers accumulated 218,927 total tweets during a shorter timeframe (a typical NFL game lasts about an hour longer than a typical NBA game).

Hopefully we’ll get to see a few more of these types of games during the regular season and in the playoffs as well! The Warriors will go right back at it again tonight when they play the Chicago Bulls at home on ESPN. The game begins at 10:30 p.m. ET and you can follow along with what’s trending in the game at Social Delta.
