Record Broken

Golden State Warriors beat Grizzlies, end season with a record 73 wins

Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game of the season at home on Wednesday night, beating the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104 in the final game of the regular season. The Warriors' 73-9 season beats the 72-10 record set by the 1995-96 Michael Jordan–era Chicago Bulls. Curry also set a new benchmark for most 3-pointers in one season, 402, obliterating his previous record of 286. Those points helped the Warriors romp to victory: Curry had 46 points in the game. Here's what the crowd looked like when the buzzer sounded:

Steve Kerr, the Warriors coach, played for the Bulls when the 20-year-old record was set. "I never thought anyone would break it," he said after the game. Now Golden State can set their sights on back-to-back NBA championships.
