One for the Ages: The Golden State Warriors’ 2015-16 Historic Season


There was no fairy tale ending for the Golden State Warriors last season after failing to win back-to-back championships, conceding the NBA title to the Cleveland Cavaliers. But to overlook and not appreciate what the Dubs had accomplished in the regular season would just be wrong.

Some of the NBA records the Warriors set will be quite difficult, though not impossible, to beat.

Best start to an NBA season: The Warriors sprinted ahead of the pack and never looked back. They won their first 24 games, incredibly eclipsing the previous record by nine games. Additionally, the team broke a 131-year-old record for the best start to a season in all the major leagues: NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL.

No back-to-back losses in a regular season: Not once did the team lose two games in a row in the regular season. They are the first to do so in league’s 70 years of existence, and it would probably take a long time before a team does it again.

Most three-point field goals made in a regular season: This record might be broken sooner than later as more teams are relying on the three-point shot. But Golden State is the first team to break the one thousand barrier as they made 1,077 three-point field goals last season, led by Steph Curry’s 402 and Klay Thompson’s 276.

Best regular season record: There is no question that this was the Warriors’ greatest accomplishment last season. The 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ 72-10 record was supposed to be an unbeatable record – until Golden State won 73 games.
