That season had MJ leading his Chicago Bulls to an all-time single-season best record of 72-10, a mark that Curry's Golden State Warriors (55-5) are more than threatening with the best record in league history through 60 games.

The Warriors' second win over the Thunder in six days was their 44th in a row at Oracle Arena, allowing them to match the perfection achieved by the Bulls from March 30, 1995, to April 4, 1996.

Curry, who scored 33 points against Thunder, commented, "that's an awesome accomplishment". "We want home-court advantage in the playoffs". It is more than likely Kerr was not trying to sell Durant on playing for the Warriors or that the ultra-talented Durant was reaching out to the coach to know if the Warriors were interested.

Splash Brothers Curry and Thompson may have been the scoring leaders, but Speights and Livingston share the honor for superb contributions off the bench.

In the second game, the Golden State Warriors face the Oklahoma City Thunder for the second time in three games.

Recently, Phil Jackson made some comments about, and I'm paraphrasing, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf being similar to Stephen Curry as a player.

After a bad week when the Thunder lost six of their last eight games, Durant addressed the eventual issue of either leaving the Thunder or moving on to another National Basketball Association franchise.

We can get historical with it if you'd like.

Westbrook, meanwhile, hit only eight of his 24 shots, including one of eight from 3-point range.

Indeed, the 43-game home win streak looked somewhat in peril when the Thunder offense started clicking and turned a two-point halftime deficit to a 80-71 lead with less than five to play in the third.
