NBA Decade
NBA Decade: The '90s index
Phil Jackson's 12-man wrecking crew compiled the three best single-season records for the 1990's, including a record-setting 72-10 season in 1995-96. Interestingly enough, the three clubs that tallied 63-19 records all failed to advance to the NBA Finals, while 3 of 4 teams to went 62-20 reached the NBA Finals (San Antonio missed in 1994-95).

• On 19 occasions, teams won 60 or more games in a single season.

• The Bulls are the only team to win 60 games and also win the NBA Title in the same year, doing so five times in the 90's.

• On 32 occasions, teams lost 60 or more games.

• Utah and Portland were the only the only clubs to post a winning record for all 10 seasons of the 90's.
