The Warriors are a single victory away from immortality.
After compiling 72 victories during the 2015-16 regular season, Golden State is one win away from surpassing the 1995-96 Bulls as the most winningest team in NBA history.
If the team manages to defeat Memphis — a team it has already beaten three times this season — it will finish the year at 73-9, the best individual record the league has ever seen.
Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is closing in on his second straight MVP award, an accomplishment previously achieved only by nine other players in league history, as he has put up unfathomable numbers.
Curry leads the league in scoring, is posting the highest field goal percentage of any point guard in the NBA, ranks second in 3-point field goal shooting percentage and has connected 392 times from 3-point range, 120 more than any other player in the league this year.
The 28-year-old guard has made his case for becoming the first unanimous MVP award winner, as he leads the league with 29.9 points and 2.1 steals per game while also posting 6.7 assists and 5.5 rebounds.
In our latest podcast, we breakdown Golden State’s chances of winning that elusive 73rd game, take a look back at the finer moments of Kobe Bryant’s career and much more.
