1990–91 Golden State Warriors season

The 1990-91 NBA season was the Warriors' 45th season in the NBA and 28th in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] The trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin were given the name "Run TMC" during the season.[2]

In the opening game, the Warriors defeated the Denver Nuggets 162–158, the highest-scoring regulation game in NBA history. Despite their scoring prowess, the Warriors were limited defensively. On February 26, 1991, they lost 131–119 to the Orlando Magic despite the Run TMC trio each scoring more than 30 points (the rest of the team totaled 21 points).[3]
