The Golden State Warriors made history on Wednesday night with their close victory on the road against the Indiana Pacers.
Whenever the Golden State Warriors hit the hardwood, they’re bound to put on a show. Such was the case on Wednesday, with the Western Conference powerhouse traveling to Indiana and taking down the Pacers 111-107.
As it turns out, that victory over Indiana proved to be a historic one. That’s because with that triumph, Golden State has now won 1,000 road games in franchise history, becoming only the fifth organization in the NBA to reach that accomplishment.
The Golden State Warriors are the fifth team in NBA history to reach 1,000 road wins
This is remarkable from the Warriors. With the likes of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and others starring for the team in recent years, the organization has also won three NBA Finals titles since 2015.
Now that they’ve reached 1,000 road wins, they’ve joined the Lakers, Knicks, 76ers and Celtics as the only teams in the league to claim that honor. Thus far this season, without Thompson in the lineup due to a torn Achilles, the Warriors have managed an 18-15 record and sit in eighth place of the Western Conference standings.
It’s not quite what fans have expected, but Curry continues to light up the court whenever he’s out there. The superstar guard is second in the NBA with his 30 points per game. He’s also posting 6.3 assists and 5.5 rebounds per showing.
In Wednesday’s historic win against Indiana, Curry led the team with his 24 points, while adding eight rebounds and eight assists. While the Warriors aren’t at the top of the conference standings, they’re still a dangerous team each game. Later this season, we’ll see if Curry will be able to power the team on a deep postseason run, where they’ll hope to record even more history.
