The Golden State Warriors will take on the Memphis Grizzlies to aim for history at the Oracle Arena in Oakland on Wednesday, April 13, starting 10:30 PM ET.
According to official NBA sources, the Golden State Warriors did the impossible in Sunday night’s game agains the San Antonio Spurs. They beat the Spurs at the AT&T Center in Texas, after failing to achieve the feat in two decades. They have the same record now with the Chicago Bulls 1995-96 record of 72-9. The Warriors are now just one win away from the momentous accomplishment and top Michael Jordan’s Bull’s record.
“I knew what it was but you never really thought about it in perspective of anybody chasing it. It was kind of that number that was out there that seemed invincible,” Curry said after practice Tuesday. “Even at the beginning of this year, even when we started 24-0, it was kind of: ‘Well, maybe we can do it. We’re going to keep playing every night with the intention of winning as many games as possible,’ but it just sounded kind of ludicrous, 72-10, how much good play has to go into it. We’re there now, 72-9, and we’ve got one more chance to beat it.”
“It’s a big deal for sure,” Curry said. “It’s our last regular-season game, our last tuneup before the playoffs and nobody wants to lose their last game going into the playoffs if you can avoid it, and obviously 73. We want to get that number. Why not?”
As per the BBC reports, the resale tickets for the “historic game” are going for $15,900. Still, the record breaking prices will not dampen the spirit of the fans.
