Warriors Start 15-0, Inching Closer To History
Reigning NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors, are 15-0 to begin the current season... and are moving closer to NBA history.
The team tied the best start in league history on Sunday night (Nov. 22), when they beat the Denver Nuggets 118-105. With the win, the Warriors matched the start of the 1948-49 Washington Capitols and the '93-94 Houston Rockets... and can break the record Tuesday night, when they take on the Los Angeles Lakers at home.
"It's kind of a quiet confidence that we don't feel like we're going to lose anytime soon," Stephen Curry said. "The way we're playing ... we can get even better."
Despite it being such a big moment, the Warriors say they're focused on a back-to-back title, not an NBA record.
"Whether or not we get it, it really doesn't affect our ultimate goal of trying to win a championship," said interim coach Luke Walton. "It would be something nice to get along the way."
