Warriors Eclipse Jordan’s Bulls Record of 72 Wins


This wasn’t supposed to happen. No team was ever supposed to eclipse the Jordan Bulls’ hallowed benchmark of 72 wins, much less this one. In winning 125-104 over the Memphis Grizzlies, the Golden State Warriors, again, jumped the line and seized something the league still struggles to believe. They, and not Michael Jordan, now boast history’s best regular season.

The season-capper featured more than just win 73. Going in, Curry needed eight 3-pointers to reach 400 on the season, 41 points for a 30-point average. Reaching those benchmarks seemed like a stretch, and yet Curry did it in 30 minutes. Yet again, he made the extraordinarily difficult look wonderfully easy. Again, records fell with the loose flick of his wrist.
