PBT Extra: Warriors reaching 33 straight wins seeming reasonable

6 Comments

After thrashing the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night, the Golden State Warriors improved to 23-0 on the season — the fastest start in NBA history.

And suddenly catching the 1972 Lakers’ streak of 33 straight wins in a season doesn’t seem unreasonable. Even if Klay Thompson has to miss a couple games and Harrison Barnes remains out.

In this PBT Extra I take a look ahead at the NBA schedule and while there are some potential stumbling blocks — Utah gave them a hard time last meeting, of course the Cavaliers on Christmas Day when Cleveland will have Kyrie Irving healthy — jump off the list.

But if the Warriors play the way they have, with the focus they have of late, the Laker record is not out of the question.
