The Golden State Warriors lost their seventh game of the NBA season last night, going down 87-79 to the San Antonio Spurs in Texas.
It was a poor performance from pretty much everyone on the Warriors side of the ball as their offense never really got going.
Golden State look like their quest to break the record for the best ever regular season record is wearing them down as the year gets to it's closure, but Draymond Green has ensured the team are still going for that 73-9 goal.

I'm not going to shy away from saying we want the record," Green told Scott Cacciola of the New York Times. "Absolutely we want it, and we're going after it."
To get that record, however, Golden State is going to have to win 11 of its final 13 games – including two more meetings with the Spurs in the final week of the regular season, one more in Texas and one at the Oracle Arena.
After beginning the season going 24 games unbeaten, the Warriors have been considered a threat to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' record. However, head coach Steve Kerr said earlier this month that resting "will take precedence" over chasing the mark and making history.
Whatever happens, this Warriors side will go down as one of the best in NBA history. If they can break that Bulls record and go back-to-back as NBA Champions, they might be number one.
