NBA : Quest for 73 Continues as Warriors Visit Mavs
Winning the championship isn't enough anymore for the Golden State Warriors. They're on a quest to break the NBA regular-season record of 72 wins, set by the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls. The saga continues Friday night (8:30 PM ET) when the Warriors visit the Dallas Mavericks, who are fighting to make the playoffs.
After smashing everything in sight earlier in the season, the Warriors (60-6 SU, 37-27-2 ATS) have come down to earth a little, and it's affecting them at the pay window. Golden State is 14-2 SU and 6-9-1 ATS over the past 16 games. The Dubs have also run into some rare injury problems; swingman Andre Igoudala (sprained left ankle) and back-up center Festus Ezeli (scoped left knee) are both out for Friday's game.
The Mavericks (34-33 SU, 35-31-1 ATS) have also lost a step or two, but in their case, it's costing them victories. Dallas is just 6-11 SU and ATS since the beginning of February. This is despite adding free agent power forward and former Warrior David Lee, who has played at a very high level during his 10 games in Dallas. Lee has 19.8 points and 15.0 rebounds per 36 minutes with the Mavs.
NBA : Warriors-Mavs in Big D
The Golden State Warriors (60-6 SU, 37-27-2 ATS) bring their Quest for 73 to the American Airlines Center this Friday night when they visit the Dallas Mavericks (34-33 SU, 35-31-1 ATS). Tip-off is at 8:30 PM ET.
Dallas will be happy just to make the playoffs after going 6-11 SU and ATS since the start of February. Golden State, on the other hand, is trying to win 73 games to break the record Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls set 20 years ago. The Warriors are 14-2 SU and 6-9-1 ATS in their last 16 games.
