It comes down to this. One game. The Golden State Warriors need one more win, over the Memphis Grizzlies on April 13th at the Oracle Arena, to break the NBA’s single season win record. Watch the history-making game on live stream here.
Obvious league MVP Stephen Curry, 28, and his NBA champion Golden State Warriors have earned 72 wins during this regular season of games. They have tied Michael Jordan, 53, and his 1996 Chicago Bulls team. But there is one more game on the schedule for the Warriors and it’s at home against an inferior team. Will they break the record? Watch the action online and find out here!
The Warriors are so wickedly good, even though there were moments in the season where fans doubted if they could get to this point. But Golden State has persevered and has achieved the near impossible, being one game away from having the most wins in an NBA season in league history. After starting the season with a record-shattering 24-0 winning streak, they stumbled late but are finishing strong after dispatching a tough San Antonio Spurs team at home.
The Warriors have a great chance at breaking the record as they will be facing a weaker team in the Grizzlies. The Warriors are looking for their fourth win in a row while the Memphis team is riding a two-game losing streak. The Grizz have already clinched a play-off spot and are over 29 games behind the first place Warriors in the west.
The Grizzlies may rest some key players as they will be looking to go into the first round of the post season action as healthy as possible. The squad likely will be lacking proper motivation to put up a good fight as they have little at stake in this game beyond pride. The Warriors however, are favored to repeat as NBA champions and want to leave their mark in the history books as the greatest team to ever play the game. They want this win so badly!
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Will the Golden State Warriors break the single season win record? If they do win, will you consider them the best team in the history of the NBA? Who do you think is the best team ever to play on a hard court?
