6. Warriors make history with 73-9 regular-season record

Before there was heartbreak, there was triumph. The Warriors clinched the best record in NBA history on the season's last night, and to ice the cake, Stephen Curry hit 10 three-pointers that night to give him an NBA record 402 for the season. The record-breaking performances highlighted exactly how much of a juggernaut the Warriors were—during the regular season. — Rohan Nadkarni
