The Golden State Warriors have written their name in the NBA record books once again, as they become the sole leader in the most undefeated games at the start of the season, as they move to 16-0 on the season.

The Oakland-based franchise defeated the LA Lakers 111-77 last night to break the record, with current NBA MVP and standout player in the league at the moment Stephen Curry getting 24 points and nine assists.

The win by the Warriors meant they broke the record of 15-0 for the best undefeated start to the season previously held by the 1993-94 Houston Rockets and 1948-49 Washington Capitals.

The home win as well meant the Warriors have won 85 of their last 100 regular season games, with a consecutive streak of 27 games won

The next target for the current NBA Champions could be to break the record of 33 consecutive victories during a regular NBA season, currently held by the 1972 Lakers, or it could be to win at least 70 or more games this season, which has only been done by the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls. 

Curry recognised the accomplishment achieved last night but knows it won't go on forever, according to ESPN.

He said: "It's a special accomplishment any time you can do something that hasn't been done before. It's not going to be total dominance for 82 games."

The next game for the Warriors on the road towards winning 33 consecutive games or a 72 game win season is a trip to Phoenix to play against the Suns on Friday, where they hope to continue their dominance in the NBA.
