Keeping Their Heads in the Game: The Golden State Warriors Making History in NBA

People thought The Golden State Warriors were at risk of losing their first game this season in NBA when they faced-off with the San Antonio Spurs. When the two teams met for the first time in the regular season, the then “rookie” team Golden State Warriors beat the Spurs by 30 points, ending the game at 90-120.

The last game did not live up to the hype. While the Spurs played well, the Warriors played a notch higher. Curry was great on defense, and was a sharp shooter as well. Fans thought it was because of Duncan’s absence due to a knee injury, but the Warriors did not need to explain a lot about their win because their stats say a lot about how good they played the game.

Just like the Warriors, the Spurs were also undefeated (that is, before the GSW beat them for the first time this season), and won 33 straight games in San Antonio. They have beaten giant teams including the Celtics and the Hawks. Sadly for Spurs fans, the Golden State Warriors were as good as their team—or even better.

Can the Spurs get their crown back? It is hard to say for now, but the Golden State Warriors are showing solid performance—one that is for the books. Truly, the Warriors are making NBA history.
