It seemed like an impossible task for the Golden State Warriors, hitting the road to beat a San Antonio Spurs team that hasn’t lost on its AT&T Center home court all season, trying to set a new NBA regular season wins record. But the Warriors prevailed, and they are now one win away from having the best regular season record in league history.
Stephen Curry, the league’s reigning MVP, had a stellar game offensively, scoring 37 points on 13-of-22 shooting, also dishing out five assists and grabbing five rebounds. The Under Armour-sponsored athlete hit the San Antonio court in a familiar player’s edition colorway of his latest signature shoe, the Curry Two, featuring a gold and black color palette.
But Curry wasn’t the only player who wore stellar kicks during the 92-86 Golden State victory. The “Splash Brother” opposite Curry, Klay Thompson, dropped 14 points on the Spurs on 6-of-14 shooting, including going 2-of-4 from downtown. The Anta-sponsored baller hit the court in a white, gold and blue iteration of his KT silhouette.
Forward Draymond Green, the team’s vocal leader, stepped onto the court Sunday in the Nike Zoom HyperRev 2016. Green scored 11 points, secured four rebounds and handed out four assists during the win. The team’s other starting forward, Harrison Barnes, added nine points to the Warriors’ scoring total in a blue and gold colorway of the Adidas Crazyquick 3.
Golden State is now one win away from setting a new benchmark for the best regular season record, set by Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in the 1995-96 season, when they went 72-10. There is one game remaining on their schedule: The Warriors will host the Memphis Grizzlies at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday.
