Pursuit of Perfection: Regular Season Finale

Warriors make history with 73rd win


The Golden State Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104 to set the all time record for most wins in NBA history, 73. The previous record was set by a ’95-’96 bulls team that featured stars Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

Many didn’t think the Warriors could do it after losing twice in the span of four days from April 1st-April 5th, but they proved even NBA greats wrong. Most of whom argued that modern NBA rules make today’s game softer.

The defending NBA champions were led by the leading MVP candidate, Stephen Curry. He hit ten shots from outside the three-point arc, being the only player to hit 400 or more three pointers in a season. In fact, no other has even hit 300. Curry’s play was complimented by Klay Thompson, who scored 16 points. This duo is commonly referred to as the “Splash Brothers”.

While Golden State will savor the record, they cannot stay content. With the NBA playoffs starting on Saturday April 16th. As Warriors power forward Draymond Green said, “72-10 don’t mean a thing without a ring.”
