What is there to say about the Warriors? They’ve been dominating all season and they haven’t shown any signs of slowing down. Stephen Curry is burning opponents left, right and center, Draymond Green has been a stellar defender as usual while showcasing exceptional passing (6.7 assists a night), Festus Ezeli stepped up in the early absence of Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala make plays when it counts, and everyone is doing what it takes.

Everyone is doing what it takes to win. Or, to be precise, everyone is doing what it takes to win in commanding fashion.

They lead the NBA in points per game (114.5), assists per game (29.4), field goal percentage (48.7), three point percentage (41.6), and win differential (+14.4). They just seem to take over in every facet of the game, and they have the smothering defense to support their unstoppable offense.

Again, what more is there to say?

It really isn’t out of the question to think they can match (or potentially even surpass) the 72-10 record of Michael Jordan’s 1995-96 Bulls.
