(Stephen) Curry doesn’t hide from it: The Warriors want that record.
“There’s not many opportunities that you probably have to go after that record,” Curry said Friday to CNN’s Andy Scholes. “Obviously, going to win a championship, that’s the main goal. But there’s a reason that we’re still talking about that ’95-’96 Bulls team that was able to accomplish the 72-and-10 record. They were on a mission that year and ended up winning the championship as well. So that’s kind of where we want to be.”
“But when you have a shot at history and being the best regular-season team in the history of the NBA, I think you’ve got to go for it.”
