The Golden State Warriors have won at least 50 games in each of the past six seasons after their 121-114 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. It’s an accomplishment the back-to-back NBA champions take a great deal of pride in as they finish the end of another long regular season in the midst of a historic run.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

“It’s kind of surreal, to be honest,” Warriors guard Stephen Curry said after the game. “You talk about the history of the organization, how hard it is to win NBA games, win championships and string together [wins] year after year after year. It takes a collection of talented guys, a commitment to trying to put together the best team possible every year. That’s front office, coaching staff, all the way down. So I think I have a true appreciation for what we’ve been able to do and want to continue it for as long as we can.”7

“To have the run that we’re currently having, it’s a special thing,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said. “But in saying that, we get the opportunity to do it with a special group of guys, a special organization, a special coaching staff, a special ownership group, a special front-office group. So it’s more so about the people that you come to work with every day. That’s what makes runs like this possible. That’s what makes runs like this sustainable.”

With the win, the Warriors moved ahead of the Denver Nuggets for first place in the Western Conference standings. After some poor performances throughout the season at Oracle Arena, including Saturday’s lifeless effort, the Warriors embraced Sunday night’s win as just four regular-season home games remain in the old building.

“It’s hard for anybody to understand what these guys go through, physically, emotionally, spiritually, trying to defend the crown, trying to win the title, trying to stay on top of the mountain. It’s hard,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “And [Saturday] night they had nothing, we had nothing in the tank. And the great thing about this team is they always bounce back because they have so much pride. But what they’ve accomplished — this team has the best record over the last four seasons of any four-year period in the history of the NBA. So what they’ve done is just remarkable.”
