The Latest: Warriors could match 2 more NBA records
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Latest on Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers (all times local):
Golden State can tie two NBA records Sunday night.
The Warriors enter Game 2 of the NBA Finals against Cleveland with 49 home wins and 86 wins overall this season, factoring in regular season and playoffs.
That puts Golden State one shy of matching the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' full-season record of 87 wins. The Warriors toppled their regular-season mark of 72 wins this year, going 73-9.
Also, Golden State could become the third team to win 50 home games. That would match the record set by the 1985-86 and 1986-87 Boston Celtics.
Having said that, Golden State could stand alone in one respect: The Warriors would be the first team to win 50 games in one arena in a season. Those Celtics teams that won 50 games at ''home'' played three games in each of those seasons at Hartford, Connecticut, going 5-1 in those contests.
