Golden State Warriors have made NBA history after recording 73 wins in a season by beating Memphis Grizzlies.

The 125-104 win in Oakland means the defending NBA champions become the first team in the history of the league to win 73 games.

They now surpass the record of 72-10 set by the Chicago Bulls in 1995-96 season.

Steph Curry also became the first to net more than 400 three-pointers in a season, taking his tally to 402.

“I thought we would be better this year because of the continuity of our roster and confidence from winning a championship,” Kerr told the San Francisco Chronicle.

“But I didn’t know it would translate to more wins. A lot has to go right. I’m very grateful to be a part of it. I’m well aware of how lucky I am.”
