Warriors become second team in NBA history to reach 70 wins
Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors reached a milestone that only Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls have achieved in the history of the NBA.
This season, the Golden State Warriors started with a 24–0 run (part of a 28-game win streak stretching back to 2014–15) before falling in Milwaukee on the road. Curry scored 27 points and the Warriors became the second team to win 70 games in a season by beating the San Antonio Spurs, 112–101, on Thursday night.
“Two teams in the history of this game have reached where we are right now,” Curry said. “It’s a proud moment and something that should be recognized.”
The Warriors (70–9) bounced back from their second loss in three home games two nights earlier against Minnesota and joined the 1995–96 Bulls as the only teams in the 70-win club. Golden State can pass the Bulls by sweeping the final three games, including a rematch in San Antonio on Sunday.
