So how historic was the Warriors 92-86 win over the Spurs on Sunday? The win gave them 72, tying the 95/96 Bulls record. The win was their 34th road and a new NBA record, breaking the 95/96 Bulls record. The win ended the Spurs 48 game home win streak and was the first in San Antonio since February 14th of 1997! Worth noting is that Spurs team was the tanking Spurs team of 97 playing without “injured” David Robinson and the loss actually helped the Spurs since they ended up winning the Tim Duncan sweepstakes.
Steph Curry led the way with 37 points and 4 more 3-pointers, giving him 392 for the season. If he makes 8 3-pointers on Wednesday, when the Warriors go for win 73, he will become the first and maybe the last player to ever make 400 in a season.
“Obviously, we’re in the moment, enjoying the ride,” Curry said. “The goal is to win a championship. That’s the goal. But we put ourselves in a great position to end the season with a win and do something no team has done in history. That’s an amazing accomplishment.”
