The 1990–91 NBA season was the Warriors' 45th season in the National Basketball Association, and 28th in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] The trio of Chris Mullin, Mitch Richmond, and second-year star Tim Hardaway 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. The team got off to a solid start winning seven of their first nine games, but later on played around .500 along the way. 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]

The Warriors won their final five games of the season, finishing fourth in the Pacific Division with a 44–38 record. In the first round of the playoffs, the Warriors would again pull of an upset as they defeated the 2nd-seeded San Antonio Spurs in four games after losing Game 1. However, they would lose to the Los Angeles Lakers four games to one in the semifinals. Hardaway and Mullin were both selected for the 1991 NBA All-Star Game.

The team's season roster is featured in the video game NBA 2K16.[4]
