This game has quite the throwback feel to it:
- Of course, the Chicago Bulls were the team that Steve Kerr spent his glory years with as a player.
- As Coach Nick has reminded us, the Warriors and Bulls used to constitute something of a rivalry back in the day.
#Bulls vs #Warriors tonite. Did u know this was a rivalry once? https://t.co/N8qloiU7vm— BBALLBREAKDOWN (@bballbreakdown) December 6, 2014
The last time the Warriors beat the Bulls in Chicago was January 18, 2008 (and most of those games since were lopsided losses).
- The last time the Warriors were on an 11-game winning streak -- over 40 years ago -- it was the Bulls that ended the streak.
Tonight, the Warriors can put their past with Chicago behind them while also establishing a new legacy for themselves as the first team in franchise history to win 12 straight games. We're witnessing greatness unfold with this Warriors team and a win tonight would ensure their place in franchise history.
