With their loss to the Lakers on Saturday night, the Golden State Warriors‘ run of seven consecutive winning seasons has officially come to an end; with their 41st loss of the season, Golden State can finish no better than .500 (and, well, a 29-game winning streak to end the campaign seems … unlikely).
That run of seven winning seasons in a row matches the franchise record, originally set from 1971-72 through 1977-78, a run that included the Warriors’ first NBA title after moving from Philadelphia to the Bay Area when they swept the then-Washington Bullets in the NBA Finals in 1975.
After shipping out five players at the trade deadline, the Warriors re-signed Marquese Chriss to a regular contract and he celebrated with a 26-point, nine-rebound night against the Lakers on 12-of-15 shooting. For the week, Chriss averaged 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 27.1 minutes per game, shooting 66.7 percent overall and hitting 2-of-6 from deep.
