The Golden State Warriors made NBA history with a 125-104 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in the final game of the regular season. The Warriors finished the 2015-2016 season 73-9 besting the 72-10 mark set by the Chicago Bulls 20 years ago. Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr was a member of that Bulls team. Of course, Kerr was sidelined for more than half the season recovering from back surgery. It was under Lukes Walton began the season 24-0 and winning 39 of its first 43 games before Kerr took back the reins.
But where would this team have been without Stephen Curry? He sank his 400th 3-pointer last night shattering his own record of 286 a year ago. A second consecutive NBA MVP is on the order paper for Curry.
How good were the Warriors? The 5-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs were 67-15. Normally that would have been the the league's best record. Instead the Spurs finished 6 games back of the Warriors.
