The Warriors have been careful not to get ahead of themselves, but after Friday’s win against the Bulls, Golden State is just one win away from tying the NBA’s all-time record start of 15-0.
Two more wins, and they’ll rewrite the history books.
With their next game against the Nuggets coming up, Stephen Curry finally spoke about it would mean for the team to extend their winning streak to 15-0.
From USA Today:
They just didn’t admit it until Friday night, when a 106-94 win against the Eastern Conference-leading Chicago Bulls (8-4) improved their record to 14-0 and brought them within one victory of tying the all-time mark that was set by both the 1948-49 Washington Capitals and the 1993-94 Houston Rockets.
“It’s a goal that’s right here and now, and that’s something that we want to experience,” Warriors star Stephen Curry said after finishing with 27 points. “It would be a huge accomplishment, because obviously doing something that hasn’t been done in the history of the league is special, but you never know if this opportunity will come back again.
“There’s so many variables that go into winning this many in a row, especially at the start of the season. So we want to accomplish that, since we’re here.”
