Golden State must win eight of the final nine games of the season to break the NBA’s best single-season record set by the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls.
The Golden State Warriors stayed on pace to reach 73 wins with their 117–105 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night.
With their record now standing at 66–7, the Warriors must win seven of their final nine games of the season to break the NBA’s best single-season record set by the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls.
The San Antonio Spurs, who have the second-best record in the league behind the Warriors at 61–12, have the best opportunity to play the spoiler as they face Golden State twice in the last four games of the year.
In the win over the 76ers on Sunday, Klay Thompson scored a team-high 40 points and shot 7 of 14 from three-point range. Steph Curry followed with 20 points but sunk only 2 of 9 three-point attempts. Draymond Green contributed 11 rebounds, 11 assists and three blocks.
