Warriors top '95-96 Bulls for longest home winning streak in NBA history
The Golden State Warriors set a new NBA record with their 45th straight win at home.
Once again, the Golden State Warriors made NBA history. By defeating the Orlando Magic 119-113 on Monday, the Warriors won their 45th straight game at home, breaking the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls' record for the longest home winning streak in NBA history.
The Warriors first tied the record on Thursday with a win over the Thunder but now the historical mark solely belongs to them. Golden State is 27-0 at home this season, and will have plenty of chances to extend the record since its next six games are all at Oracle Arena.
The Warriors could actually finish the season undefeated at home, which would be yet another NBA record. The Warriors could move another step closer to that mark on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz, who are 10-21 on the road.
