History for the Golden State Warriors
By Jill Martin and Steve Almasy, CNN

(CNN)Golden State’s remarkable regular-season run brought another record Wednesday night as the Warriors won their 73rd game.

The Warriors drubbed the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104 to become the all-time winningest team for one season, besting the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls by one victory.

“It’s a great way to finish off what was an amazing regular season. I just told our guys I never in a million years would have guessed that record would ever be broken,” said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who played on the Bulls’ record-setting team.

Shooting guard Klay Thompson said the team played hard every contest.
“That’s hard to do for 82 games,” he said. “We’re going to enjoy this tonight, but we have a quick turnaround this weekend.”

The Warriors are now 16 victories away from more glory as they are set to defend their NBA title in this year’s playoffs. The top seed is theirs, assuring home-court advantage for the second year in a row.
“Congrats to the @Warriors, a great group of guys on and off the court. If somebody had to break the Bulls’ record, I’m glad it’s them,” President Barack Obama’s Twitter account said.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 46 points, 30 of which came on 3-pointers.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver also congratulated the record-setters.

“The team held itself to a high standard throughout the season, playing with purpose every night and captivating fans around the world with its free-flowing style, spectacular shooting and flair for the dramatic. Kudos to the entire Warriors organization,” Silver said.
