Warriors coach Steve Kerr said if the team were pushing to break the Bulls’ record, he wouldn’t be resting some of his best players so much.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says his team isn’t solely focused on beating the Chicago Bulls’ record for most wins in an NBA season, he told USA Today on Monday.
“We’re not really pushing for this,” Kerr said. “All we’ve said is, ‘Yeah, it’d be nice to get. We’d like to get it.’
“But if I were pushing for it, I probably wouldn’t be resting
The Warriors (69–8) must win four of their final five games, two of which are against the 64–12 Spurs, in order to reach 73 wins and break the record set by the 1995–96 Bulls, who Kerr played for that year.
The Warriors next play the Minnesota Timberwolves (25–52) on Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. ET.
