The Golden State Warriors joined the 70-win club making them the only team alongside the Chicago Bulls for this milestone.
The most important thing is that the Warriors were able to bounce back from a crushing defeat against the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves as they suffered on their second home loss in the last three games. The Warriors looked tired the last few games and going up against a streaking San Antonio Spurs who is second in the league and looking more and more confident, could have crushed their hopes to reaching 70 games and possibly breaking the Chicago Bulls record.
Steve Kerr has downplayed the achievement of breaking the record of the Bulls and winning 73 games in the regular season. Most teams making the playoffs are already resting their starters to come fresh in the first round and while Steve insists that the record 73 wins is not their priority, the way they played Minnesota Timberwolves and the Spurs says otherwise.
It would be foolish for the Warriors to let go of this achievement and should go after the 73 wins like it is a Championship Game.
The Warriors will have to remain focus on the last three games against Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday & Wednesday and the Spurs on Sunday. The Warriors need to win the game against the Grizzlies as effortlessly as possible to rest and recharge against the Spurs on Sunday. The Spurs has not lost a home game this season and Popovich said he will be resting his players and be on full attack on Sunday against the Warriors.
