The Golden State Warriors won an NBA-high 67 games during the 2016-17 regular season and went 16-1 in the postseason to claim their second championship in three years. That 67-win total was achieved with Kevin Durant playing in only 62 games. Despite those extraordinary feats, at media day on Friday coach Steve Kerr said he believes the Warriors can take the dominance to another level this year.

“I think we’ll be better this year,” Kerr said. “We’re deeper. As I talked about, the continuity is really important. But the challenge is obvious. Three years in a row in the Finals, trying to make it a fourth. Very few teams in the history of the league have done that, and there’s a reason. It’s a long haul, so we’re going to have to navigate the season, pace ourselves but not lose our edge, and that’s the balance we’re looking for.”
