Warriors become first team to start 16-0

The Suns have the next shot at stopping this incredible start when the Warriors visit Phoenix on Friday night.

The Capitols went on to lose in the final round of the 1949 postseason tournament to the Minneapolis Lakers, while the Rockets edged the New York Knicks in the 1994 NBA Finals for their first championship.

Only one team in National Basketball Association history has ever won 70 or more games: The 1995-96 Chicago Bulls-which were, of course, led by Michael Jordan-won 72.

In the fifth game of the season on 4 November, Golden State prevailed 112-108 at the Oracle Arena over their Pacific Division Rivals and then on 19 November, the Warriors hit back from a 23-point deficit at the Staples Center to beat the Clippers. Starting forward Kobe Bryant was held to just four points on 14 shot attempts as the Lakers shot a meager 37.8 percent from the field.

"Stop trying to say winning is getting old", Draymond Green said with a smile on his face when asked about the blas demeanor of the Warriors. "We have a lot of one-on-one players, including myself".

Los Angeles coach Byron Scott was part of his share of special teams with the Lakers, too.

Even Kobe Bryant, who went 1-of-14 in the loss to GSW, said he could see the Warriors breaking the Lakers' record.

In 2008, the Pats made it to the Super Bowl on the heels of a 16-0 regular season but lost a shocker to the Giants, courtesy of David Tyree's helmet catch.

Golden State shot 48.9 percent from the field and 34.3 percent from 3-point range.

"A lot of players have played in this league, a lot of great teams", he continued.

"We both have a creative style, where it's just about a feel when you're out on the pitch or on the court", Curry said.

The Warriors extended their lead to 22 points in the second quarter and 34 by the end of the third before coasting home to their 11th double-digit win of the young season.

The Lakers are 2-12 and travel to face the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.

The next record Golden State hopes to break is the 33 consecutive victories of the Lakers achieved in 1972; but that in itself is a longshot considering the level of competitiveness in the league today.

"I haven't thought about reducing his role", Scott said Wednesday at the team's practice facility. "We've got to continue to just stay in the moment". I love watching him play.
