In addition to Kobe Bryant's final game, last night saw the NBA notch another historical event as the Golden State Warriors entered the record books with a 125-104 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, setting an unprecedented single-season 73-9 mark. The feat eclipsed the record that the Dubs had shared for three days with the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, the Michael Jordan-led team that went 72-10. Stephen Curry met the historic moment head-on, pouring in 46-points while going 15-of-24 from the floor, including 10 made shots beyond the three-point arc. He needed less than 19 minutes on the court to hit the eight three-pointers, necessary to reach the 400 mark (he would finish with 402 threes). While the team will go down in history as one of the greatest of all time, Curry knows his work is unfinished. "The goal," he said, "is to win a championship."
