Really, we’d like to write about something else. But these Warriors just won’t be ignored. After beating the Brooklyn Nets yesterday, the Warriors are now 22-0, undefeated since the start of the season. Every time they play they set new records. They now have the most consecutive wins ever to start a season, and that goes for any of the four major U.S. sports – basketball, football, baseball, and hockey.
They are winning so many games so fast, Basketball-reference.com can’t keep up with them. The Warriors top a bunch of categories, and are climbing fast in others. They are tied for the most consecutive road games won at the start of the season, and if they win tomorrow night against the 12-7 Indiana Pacers, they’ll be all alone on top of that category as well.
What’s more, if the Warriors win tomorrow night, they’ll be six games away from tying the Los Angeles Lakers for the most consecutive wins ever, and perhaps well positioned to take on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls for the previously unassailable record of 72 wins in a season. But with a quarter of this season now behind them, and no losses at all, there’s no telling what these wildly entertaining and fiercely competitive Warriors can or can’t do.
