Stephen Curry on Whether Warriors Will Chase Bulls' 72-10 Record

I think they should just roll on and see where they stand after 60 games.

Golden State gained an awesome cushion, winning their first 24 games in a row. Logically, the conversation went to whether the Warrior could attain or surpass the 1996 Chicago Bulls and their 72-10 record for most wins by an NBA team during the regular season.

The reigning MVP, Stephen Curry, told Fox Sports that they talk about it and they’ll chase history if they're in range.

“We talk about it because we’re asked about it, mostly,” Curry said. “We’re not afraid to address it and understand the opportunity we have, obviously with the 24-0 start. We’re on pace for it, or actually I think we’re one game ahead of that pace.

“So we know where we are, but it’s really hard to fast-forward to April and really kind of get your mind to where, we’re 28 games from tying the record. It just makes it sink in how hard and how special that accomplishment was for the Bulls.

“We’re obviously worried about what happens in the playoffs, and being healthy and full-strength playing our best come April 16 or whenever our last game is. But if we have an opportunity to go for it, we’ll go for it. Because how many chances are you going to get to be a team that passes that record, and obviously everybody’s still talking about the 95-96 Bulls — one, because of their record, and two, because they finished it off with a championship.

“We want to be able to do both, too.”

If you’re wondering just how hard the mark will be to attain: Golden State is 44-4 on the season, yet only stand one game ahead of the pace.

After Sunday night’s win over the Knicks, Golden State would still need to win every five or six for one loss just to stay in contention, or 28-6 the rest of the way just to tie the all-time record.

That would even mean not resting guys, even after locking up the No. 1 seed.
