Warriors break record for consecutive regular-season home wins
Tuesday March 8th, 2016

The Golden State Warriors set a new NBA record for consecutive home wins on Monday night with their victory over the Orlando Magic at Oracle Arena.

The 119–113 win was the Warriors’ 45th straight win on their home court and their 27th at Oracle this season. With the victory they broke the record previously set by the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls, who also own the best single season record in NBA history at 72–10.

“To have protected our home court 45 straight games in the regular season, it hasn’t been done in history, so that’s a pretty special accomplishment,” Stephen Curry said, according to the Associated Press. “That win record is still in reach.”

At 56–6 with 20 games left to play, the Warriors still have a chance to top the Bulls’ 72-win season.

In the win over the Magic, Curry led the team with 41 points and 13 rebounds. He shot 7 for 13 from three-point range to become the first NBA player to hit 300 three-pointers in a season.
