Draymond Green says Warriors can go 41-0 at home this season

They are already 26-0. And any time you mention Golden State and a record nothing seems impossible now.

But can the Warriors go 41-0 at home this season?

Draymond Green says yes — but what did you expect the confident, loquacious Green to say? Here are his exact words when asked if the Warriors can do it, via Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com.

“I think so,” he told NBA.com. “We’ve been phenomenal at home. We’ve protected our home court. I think it’s possible for us to do it.”

 And then, without prompting:”I think we will.”

The record belongs to the 1986 Celtics, who went 40-1 at the Garden.

Of the 15 games the Warriors still have at Oracle Arena, there are a couple against the hot Trail Blazers, plus games against the Spurs, Clippers, Celtics and other quality teams. It’s not easy. But are you going to bet against the Warriors at home, where they are outscoring opponents by 16.3 points per 100 possessions? Where the Warriors have won 44 in a row dating back to last season?

Maybe the more interesting question is, can the Spurs do it, too? They are 29-0 at home and outscoring opponents by 17.4 points per 100 possessions at the AT&T Center.

Just think of how big home court would be between the Spurs and Warriors in the playoffs.
