Warriors Set NBA Record With 73rd Win of the Regular Season

Warriors Tie Franchise Mark for Single-Season Home Wins

The 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors earned their 73rd victory of the 2015-16 season with tonight’s 125-104 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in the regular-season finale at Oracle Arena, eclipsing the mark set by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls (72) to establish a new NBA record for single season wins. Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr, who is in his second year at the helm, was a key reserve on the record-setting Bulls team.

With tonight’s win, the Warriors finished the season with a 39-2 (.951) record at home, matching the franchise-record for single season home wins set in 2014-15. At 73-9 (.890), Golden State finishes the season at an NBA-record 64 games above .500.

In tonight’s regular season finale, Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 46 points on 10 made threes (10-of-19 3FG), making him the first player in NBA history to hit 400 threes in a single season (402) and giving him a season scoring average of 30.1 points. Curry, who became the seventh player in league annals to hit at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and 90 percent from the free throw line, is the first guard to average 30 points on at least 50 percent from the field since Michael Jordan in 1991-92, scoring 30 points per game in fewer minutes than any player.

Golden State will meet Houston in the First Round of the 2016 NBA Playoffs on Saturday, April 16 at 12:30 p.m. (PDT).
