Sooner or later, it was going to happen. The Golden State Warriors were going to lose.
Last night, they lost 108-95 to the mediocre Milwaukee Bucks. The night before the Warriors needed double overtime to beat the Boston Celtics 124-119 and were just out of gas.
The loss snapped a 28-game winning streak dating back to the final four regular season games from the 2014-2015 season. Although this was not the longest winning streak in NBA history (the 1971-72 L.A. Lakers won 33 games in a row) their 24-0 start this season shattered the previous record of 15-0 which was shared by the 1948-49 Washington Capitals and the 1983-84 Houston Rockets.
The question now is whether the defending NBA champs can go on to have the best record in NBA history. The 1995-96 Chicago Bulls went 72-10 en route to their fourth of six NBA titles during the Michael Jordan-Phil Jackson era. After their first 25 games, the Bulls were 23-2. The Warriors are 24-1. They have a long way to go, but records are made to be broken.
The Warriors next game takes place on Wednesday against the Phoenix Suns followed by a rematch with the Bucks on Friday.
