Move over, ’96 Bulls, because the Golden State Warriors just set a new record for wins in a season by achieving their 73rd in a 125-104 win over the Memphis Grizzlies at Oracle Arena tonight.
Star point guard Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 46 points and sunk 10 three-pointers, one of which set a record as his 400th three-ball of the season, and Klay Thompson was next in line with 16.
And there was no stopping Golden State tonight, not with history staring them square in the face. The Warriors shot 53 percent from the field as a team and out-rebounded Memphis 51-40. The Grizzlies also shot just 43 percent from the field, led by 24 points from Zach Randolph and 22 from Lance Stephenson.
Simply put, unless Golden State stumbles in the playoffs and doesn’t win a second consecutive championship, the comparisons to the ’96 Bulls will have to stop. As of this point, they have proven that they are just as good if not better than that team.
