Here we go.
Anyone there or find out otherwise?
A few weeks back, after Golden State's first loss of the season there was a thread here discussing whether GS (then 24-1) could reach or exceed the '96 Bulls' 72-10 record.
I thought GS would not be able to break the record for a few reasons, namely: the lack of Michael Jordan, being located on the West Coast where travel is more of an issue, and the fact that to remain on schedule, they woud have had to win an astounding 17 out of their next 19.
Flash forward to tonight and after the loss to Detroit, GS is now a game behind the Bulls' pace at 37-4. Now the Bulls got off to a 41-3 start before losing their 4th game, so if GS wins their next 4, they will be right back on pace. However, tonight was the first game in a tough six game stretch:
at Detroit (L)
vs. San Antonio
All six teams figure to be playoff teams. What say you? Can GS still challenge the Bulls' record?
still in first, let's keep him there
OSU @ #3 Maryland
NC State @ #5 UNC

This should be a good one tonight. Rooting for the (my) local team. Go Hawks!
