The Golden State Warriors moved one step closer to the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' regular season record of 72-10 with a routine win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 117-105 victory, however, moved the Warriors into an illustrious category as they became only the second franchise in NBA history to record consecutive seasons with at least 66 wins.

The other franchise? The Chicago Bulls, who achieved the success from 1995-97. The other organisations to hold two seasons with at least 66 wins are the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, but they never did it back-to-back.

What sets the Bulls apart from the Warriors is the fact they ended both of their historic campaigns with championship rings. 

The Warriors can become the most winningest franchise in a single season if they win seven of their remaining nine games, but it will count for very little if they do not repeat their success of last season. 

Given their imperious form throughout the campaign, the Dubs are one of the favourites to lift the Larry O'Brien trophy, however, it will be far from easy.

The San Antonio Spurs have been frighteningly good and Gregg Popovich will have them ready for postseason action, while the likes of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder, among others, pose a distinct threat.
