The Golden State Warriors are owners of the best regular season record in NBA history after they won their 73rd game on Wednesday evening.
The Golden State Warriors have accomplished the thing that was regarded as unthinkable over the last 20 years. On Wednesday night, the Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies because of their 73rd win regarding the regular period, a mark that eclipsed Michael Jordan and the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls’ 72-win standard.
The Warriors end their regular season at 73-9, six games free from just about any team this 12 months. Along because of the proven fact that they’re protecting NBA champions, it should come as surprise that is little Golden State is the heavy Las Vegas favorite heading into the playoffs.
The consensus among leading books in Nevada has the Warriors at 1/2 odds of winning the NBA Finals. The Cleveland Cavaliers (57-25) and San Antonio Spurs (67-15) are next at 4/1.
Golden State head mentor Steve Kerr, who was a member regarding the Bulls in ’95-96, said of his team’s brand new mark, ‘Never in a million years would have guessed that that record would ever be broken. I had been wrong.’
As an icing that is little the cake, last year’s MVP Stephen Curry finished the season with 402 three-pointers. No player within the history of the NBA had previously topped 300.
