Warriors set single-season NBA wins record

The Golden State Warriors earned a National Basketball Association record-setting 73rd regular season victory on Wednesday (13 April) with a 125-104 blowout win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

The victory came in the final game of the 82-game regular season and snapped the previous record of 72 wins set by Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls during the 1995-96 season.

To reach the once unthinkable 73-win plateau, the Warriors made a record 24-0 start to the campaign, won their first 36 home games, became the first team not to lose consecutive games and ended the season with a record 34 road wins.

In the record-setting victory, it was reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry who once again powered Golden State by scoring a game-high 46 points, including 10 three-pointers.

The long-range shooter also shattered the regular season mark for three-pointers, finishing with 402 made. The previous best was 286 made three-point shots last season – by Curry.

The defending NBA champion Warriors will now turn their focus to the playoffs where they will play the Houston Rockets in the opening round.
