all time nba record, 73 wins in a single season, curry, of course, leading the charge. he went after it right from the beginning, his three straight three-pointers in the opening quarter. he had 20 points, six three's in the 1st quarter alone. halftime the warriors were up 20 on memphis. halftime curry hit his 400th three. his own record was 298 last year. that's called shattering it. he leads with 46 points and we'll take you to bob fitzgerald's last call here. >> curry three! barbosa's got it, no longer chasing history. the golden state warriors now stand alone with 73 wins taking their place in the annals of the nba with the greatest regular season record of all time!
