Hello basketball world! Welcome to a new episode of NBA basketball. This week has been full of amazing hoop action. After defeating the Los Angeles Lakers 111-77 on Tuesday night, the Golden State Warriors set the new NBA record for most consecutive wins without a loss to start a season. The previous record was set by the Houston Rocket franchise at 15 consecutive wins without a loss. The Golden State Warriors, who won the NBA championship last season, have crushed and destroyed every single team on their way so far and have outscored their opponents by a total of 250 points in the process. The Warriors have been the most dominant team and remain the only undefeated team in the NBA. Stephen Curry, the MVP of the NBA last season, is leading the Association in scoring with more than 30 points per night. Curry increased his scoring from last season by almost 10 points. Curry appears determined to run with the MVP trophy again this season and is on the right path if he keeps his steady performance on the floor.
Standing at 16-0, which is the new NBA record, it seems like the Warriors will not lose anytime soon considering their upcoming schedule. The Warriors can shatter the previous NBA record if they’re able to win their next 5 or so games. The Warriors upcoming match-ups include the Phoenix Suns, the Sacramento Kings, the Utah Jazz, the Charlotte Hornets, the Toronto Raptors, and the Brooklyn Nets. the Warriors have already faced the Raptors and the Nets this season and have won both games in convincing fashion. None of these teams are in the top 10 of the NBA as of right now. The Warriors could not have asked for a better schedule. However, can they sustain the same level of energy every single night? Every game that the Warriors will play from now on, will be a big game because they have a record to protect. Every team they will face will most likely bring their A game and do everything they can to stop the Warriors streak. The Warriors will obviously lose at some point but it is hard to guess when that will happen because they have been so dominant. Do you think the Warriors will lose one of their next 5 or 6 games? If so, please leave us a comment and tell us which team you think they will lose to.
