Warriors have won 84 of 100 games; ’96 Bulls were 89-11

The Warriors have a long way to go to eclipse the Bulls’ record of 72 wins in a season but at 15-0, they’re off to a pretty good start.

Some experts think the Warriors will have a tough time in the deeply competitive Western Conference. Others feel they’ve enjoyed uncommon luck by avoiding the injury bug.

Regardless, the Bulls-Warriors comparisons are inevitable.

The Warriors 100-game stretch includes the last three games (2-1) from last season.

The Bulls showed no signs of complacency after their record-setting season, winning 12 in a row to start the 1996-97 season.

The 1971-72 Lakers, who were 69-11, won 15 of their first 18 the next season to go 86-14.
