The Warriors have long had a reputation for being one of the most fun teams to watch in the NBA. And during the 2013-14 season, they were particularly exciting. The team came back to win seven games in which they trailed by at least 15 points. And if that's not eough, there were 17 regular season games that were decided by two points or less, not to mention the six game-winning shots in the final three seconds.

So what was your favorite game of the season? The warriors.com staff shares some of their favorites in this three-part series, with games being listed in no particular order.

The Encore - February 28, 2014
Warriors at Knicks: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
One year and a day after he had 54 points at Madison Square Garden, Stephen Curry came through with another memorable performance in New York City, posting a triple-double in the Warriors' 126-103 win over the Knicks. Curry had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and did not play a minute in the fourth quarter. His five 3-pointers were matched by Klay Thompson, and the Warriors won for the fifth time in their first six games after the All-Star Break.

Splash Brothers Key Comeback in Portland - March 16, 2014
Warriors at Trail Blazers: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
The Splash Brothers combined for 51 points in the second half and the Warriors overcame an 18-point deficit in the third quarter to pull out a dramatic 113-112 win in Portland. Klay Thompson made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 11.9 seconds left in the game and the Warriors caught a break with Portland’s Nicolas Batum missing both a potential game-tying free throw and a potential game-winning shot in the final seconds. Thompson had 27 points and Curry scored 15 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter of the comeback win.

The Surprise - April 13, 2014
Warriors at Trail Blazers: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
The Trail Blazers were a near lock to take on the Rockets in the 4-5 matchup in the Western Conference Playoffs, and the Warriors had just clinched their berth in the postseason, so this conference showdown didn’t figure to be a memorable matchup. But we figured wrong. This classic back-and-forth battle, a growing trend between these two teams, had 16 lead changes and three ties. Stephen Curry had 47 points, connecting on seven of the game’s 27 3-pointers, and he assisted Draymond Green’s trey that sent the game into overtime. More dramatics occurred in the extra period, with the teams changing leads six times in the final three minutes. But in the end, the Warriors fell just short, losing 119-117 in one of the more entertaining games in the NBA this season.

The Birth of #FullSquad - December 27, 2013
Warriors vs. Suns: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
The Warriors dominated their division rival in the second quarter and Stephen Curry notched his second of four triple-doubles during the 2013-14 campaign, but this game makes the cut for what happened after the 115-86 victory. During a postgame interview, David Lee was looking for verification of a stat when the team had its Opening Night starting lineup, and the #FullSquad movement was born. The hashtag began trending on social media channels and the Warriors validated the moniker by going 30-13 when their starting five consisted of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, David Lee and Andre Bogut.

Iguodala Returns to Philly - November 4, 2013
Warriors at 76ers: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
With Andre Iguodala playing the first eight seasons of his NBA career with the 76ers, nobody would question him for being a little more amped up than usual when the Warriors played an early season game in Philadelphia. At the time, the 76ers were the talk of the league, having beaten the defending champion Miami Heat on Opening Night and reeling off two other wins to start the season with a 3-0 record. Iguodala, however, made it clear early that the Sixers would not be going 4-0. The veteran swingman connected on a career-high seven 3-pointers for a season-high 32 points in the 110-90 victory that improved the Warriors to 3-1 in the young season. While the game did feature a great scoring performance from Iguodala and a triple-double from Stephen Curry, the one play that sticks out the most is this ridiculous behind-the-back pass from Iguodala that resulted in an easy layup for David Lee.

Mo Speights Night - February 10, 2014
Warriors vs. 76ers: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
Andre Iguodala had a big night against the Sixers in November, but it was another former Philly player that torched his old team when the two clubs met in Oakland. Marreese Speights had Oracle Arena abuzz, going 12-for-15 from the floor for a career-high 32 points. Although Speights’ playing time fluctuated throughout the season, he proved ready for this moment and at one point scored 17 of 18 Warriors points in the second quarter. The Warriors cruised to the 123-80 victory, enjoying their largest margin of victory of the season.

Curry Delivers to Beat Boston - January 10, 2014
Warriors vs. Celtics: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
Just a week after Iguodala’s second buzzer beater to win a game this season, Stephen Curry matched that game-winner total by knocking down left wing jumper to give the Warriors a 99-97 win over the Celtics. The shot, which came in the team’s first game back after a 6-1 road trip, saved a game in which the Warriors let the Celtics come all the way back from a 13-point deficit.

The End - May 3, 2014
Game 7 - Warriors at Clippers: GAME RECAP | HIGHLIGHTS | PHOTO GALLERY
Most neutral observers would agree that this was one of the best Game 7s in recent memory, and even though it wasn’t the closest game of the series, it was by far the most well-played (on both sides) contest of the Warriors-Clippers first round matchup. The Warriors led for the majority of the game, but it went back and forth in the final quarter with six lead changes and two ties. Stephen Curry went 16-for-16 on free throws and had a game-high 33 points, while Draymond Green continued his strong postseason play with 24 points, including 5-for-8 on 3-pointers. But ultimately, the Warriors fell short 126-121 and the season came to an end far sooner than anybody in Dub Nation would have liked.
