History was made with the Golden State Warriors beating the San Antonio Spurs 92-86 on Sunday night. The Warriors joined the ranks of Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls, with a chance to surpass them with a historic 73rd win on Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Warriors don't seem to be all that concerned about resting their stars, although Steve Kerr did limit their minutes. Stephen Curry had 37 points, dished out 5 assists, and snagged 5 boards in the win.
After Sunday's game, former Bulls star and NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen tweeted congratulations to his former teammate on the record-setting Chicago team.
"Giving credit where credit is due. Congrats to @SteveKerr and his @warriors on win no. 72," Pippen wrote on Twitter. "They earned it tonight."
Pippen praised reigning league MVP Curry in a follow-up tweet and called him "as cold blooded shooter as I've ever seen" with a "basketball IQ that is off the charts."
Curry owns the two highest-scoring games against the Spurs this season. He dropped 37 points both times.
With the win Sunday, Golden State became the only team in NBA history to go an entire season without losing back-to-back games, according to Elias Sports Bureau research. The Warriors become the first team in NBA history to go an entire season without losing to the same team more than once.
Yes I think they're going to set a new record. Even though the entire starting lineup is pretty tired Memphis is playing back-to-back games so the Warriors are definitely going to have an advantage.
@mchlyang Exactly. We're going to take that record and the championship!
