Warriors Win #68 In Overtime

The Golden State Warriors are on the brink of history as the NBA regular season comes to a close.  After somehow, someway getting to overtime to defeat the Utah Jazz tonight 103-96, the Warriors have a franchise best win-loss record of 68-7.


That's seven losses with none occurring at home. Also, no back-to-back losses; no two game losing streaks. It's an incredible feat that might never be duplicated in the NBA.  The Warriors are still chasing the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls 72-10 season, a league best.  There's seven games left with two of those games against the 63-12 San Antonio Spurs. 

The playoffs are right around the corner. The Warriors would and should probably rest players, but when your chasing greatness its all hands on deck.  The team is somehow finding different ways to beat teams that are bringing their best. The sooner Andre Igoudala get's back from an ankle injury the better. Meantime, every able body is contributing to give the defending champions a much deserved place in the NBA history books.

Just keep chopping wood and carrying water boys, The fruits of your labor will fall from the tree when ripe.
