Golden State Warriors can make history with win tonight

There is no doubting that the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have been the best team in the league this year. The team started off 24-0 before suffering their one and only loss.

Despite that, the team is 26-1 and have a chance to pull off a big accomplishment tonight. The team plays Utah Jazz and with a win, they would have the best winning percentage heading into Christmas Day in NBA history.

It is also worth noting that three of the top four teams on that list went on to win the NBA Championship that year.

With a win tonight, the @warriors would have the best winning percentage by a team entering Christmas Day:

The Warriors have been compared to that 95-96 Chicago Bulls team and with good reason too. The Warriors are one of the most entertaining teams to watch and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them break this record.
