Warriors Win 60 for 1st Time in Franchise History; Knicks Lose 60 for 1st Time in Franchise History

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr turned down the New York Knicks job before signing up with Golden State. It’s safe to say he chose wisely.

The Warriors won a franchise-record 60th game on Saturday night, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 108-95 despite both Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala sitting out for rest purposes. Not only did the win set a franchise record, but Golden State also clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.

The Warriors have been dominant all season, racking up a 34-2 home record thus far and boasting an insane average point differential of 10.9. That would be the best mark since the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, who won 72 games and had an average point differential of 12.24.

Meanwhile, the team that Kerr spurned lost a franchise-record 60th game against the Bulls on Saturday night. The game was a blowout from the very beginning, and the final score was a 111-80 beat down.

It has truly been a miserable season in New York, with a knee injury to Carmelo Anthony making it all even worse. At 14-60, the Knicks have the worst record in the league and have a league-worst -9.7 average point differential. The team is trotting out a starting lineup these days of Shane Larkin, Langston Galloway, Lance Thomas, Andrea Bargnani and Lou Amundson. That’s awful.

The silver lining, of course, is a boatload of cap space and the best odds of earning the No. 1 pick in the draft.
