Warriors become second team in NBA history to win 70 games
Only the '95-96 Chicago Bulls and Golden Sate Warriors have won 70 games in the history of the NBA.
Easily defeating the San Antonio Spurs 112-101 on Thursday, the Warriors (70-9) are three wins away from breaking the Bulls' record for single-season wins. Golden State is on pace with those Bulls as both teams picked up their 70th win in the 79th game.
Those Bulls won their 72nd game in their final game and the Warriors could possibly set the single-season mark in their last game against the Memphis Grizzlies next Wednesday. According to projections from SportsLine, Golden State has a 33 percent chance of finishing the season with 73 wins. To end their season, Golden State has to play the Grizzlies twice and the Spurs in San Antonio.
That Spurs game Sunday figures to be the deciding factor. San Antonio likely will have Boris Diaw back and could be motivated to stay undefeated at home. SportsLine's projections give the Warriors a 46 percent chance of defeating the Spurs on Sunday.
But before Golden State can focus on the Spurs, their quest for 73 heads to Memphis, where they will have to get past the Grizzlies on Saturday.
