Stephen Curry establishes a change of focus for the Golden State Warriors

Published 1 Comments

The Golden State Warriors wrote themselves into the NBA history books after finishing the regular season with 73 wins, breaking the 72 win record set by the Chicago Bulls 20 years ago.

However, with that achievement ticked off, they now look to go get another and win back-to-back championships. When they face the Houston Rockets in the playoffs this weekend, their regular season accomplishments won't count for nothing.

"The regular season doesn't mean anything at this point," Curry said Friday, according to "We have two months to play our best basketball and compete and get it done."

If they do manage to win another championship, they will be arguably the best team ever to grace the NBA, but if they fall short of that goal, you have to wonder why they went for the record in the first place only to fall when it really matters.

"Whether the atmosphere was there or not, on the court it felt like playoff intensity for the majority of our games. We feel confident we're ready for the moment," Curry said.

Houston will be a tough challenge for the Warriors, but with what Golden State has managed to achieve this season, whether that be breaking records as a team or with individuals like Curry, anything less than advancement to the next round would be disappointing.
