Golden State ties franchise record for most consecutive road wins

Warriors villains antiheroes

The Golden State Warriors took down the Chicago Bulls 119-112 at the United Center on Wednesday night, tying the franchise record for most consecutive road wins with 14 straight.

Klay Thompson scored 38 points while Stephen Curry added 30 points for the Warriors.

The new year has been good for the Warriors whose only loss this month has been a 125-106 loss at home to the L.A. Clippers on January 10. On the road, however, they have been unstoppable.

Golden State has not lost on the road since losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-91 on November 22, almost two months ago.

Not only are the 2017-18 Warriors gunning for their 15th straight road win, they are also looking to break the record for most consecutive road wins in NBA history.

The distinction belongs to the 1971-72 L.A. Lakers who won 16 straight road games while going on a 33-game winning streak. That Lakers team owned the league’s best record of 69-13 at the end of the season and went on to win the NBA championship.

The Warriors, however, will have a tough task ahead of them as they face the Houston Rockets next on the 20th. A win would tie them with the 1994-95 Utah Jazz for second all time. Coincidentally, the Dubs head to Utah on January 30 as they hope to tie the Lakers’ record.

If Golden State keeps winning, the record-breaking milestone of 17 consecutive road wins could happen on February 2 when they take on the Sacramento Kings.  The Warriors are 7-1 in their last eight games in Sacramento.
