That record was set in 1996 by the Chicago Bulls, and only a handful of other teams have ever managed to win even more than 60 games in a season.

The Warriors, who beat the San Antonio Spurs 92-86 in Texas, will have a chance to go one better. They're scheduled to take on the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, and a win would leave them with a record-breaking 73-9 season.

Sunday also marked the first time the Warriors beat the Spurs in San Antonio in 33 games. The Spurs had almost achieved a perfect season at home; the loss to the Warriors robbed them of a 40-game streak.

Basketball fans cheered the victory as history in the making — and potentially upstaging the Bulls' legacy.

The Warriors will become the first team in history to go an entire season without losing to the same team twice.
