Stephen Curry Leads Golden State Warriors to 72nd Win, Tying 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for Most In a Season

STEPHEN Curry led the Golden State Warriors to its 72nd win of the season, tying the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for the most in a regular season.

The reigning MVP finished with 37 points, as the Warriors picked up the 92-86 win over the San Antonio Spurs; the first win by an opponent at San Antonio’s AT&T Center, this season.

The Chicago Bulls were the only team in NBA history to win 72 games in a regular season — achieving a 72-10 record during the 1995-96 season — with the Warriors joining that historic team, with one game to spare.

With one game remaining in the regular season — Thursday’s (AEST) matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies — the Warriors have the opportunity to improve to an unprecedented 73-9 record; a record that would be the greatest in the history of the NBA.

With the loss, the Spurs dropped to 39-1 on the season, eliminating any chance to be the first team in NBA history to finish the season without dropping a game at home.

Coming off a tight win over the Grizzlies, the Warriors had a quick turnover, and it showed as they came out to a slow start.

Kawhi Leonard came out of the gates quickly, scoring the Spurs’ first five points of the game, as the home team quickly looked to be on the front foot.

After struggling in the previous game, Stephen Curry looked more aggressive on the offensive end, opening the second quarter with a basket, before hitting Shaun Livingston for an open dunk; keeping the Warriors close.

The Spurs, who currently sit on a 39-0 home record, will be hoping to remain perfect at AT&T Center, while a Warriors win would see the team tie an NBA record for wins in a regular season.

The Warriors finished the second period with a 15-8 run, tying the game at 35 apiece heading into the main break.

Curry continued to dominate the offensive end as he entered the second half, scoring 16 points in the period as the Warriors managed to get back to their usual fast paced style of play.

However, the Spurs managed to keep the came close; a Kevin Martin three-pointer cutting the Warriors’ lead to just 62-61 heading into the final frame.

As expected, Curry managed to hit a shot from beyond half-court, but it was ruled that the attempt came just after the buzzer.

The fourth quarter opened with an individual 5-0 run from Harrison Barnes, extending the Warriors’ lead to 68-65 early in the period.

LaMarcus Aldridge’s signature mid-range game kept the Spurs in the game, but Curry, along with Klay Thompson, managed to stay in rhthym; not letting San Antonio cut too deep into the Warriors lead.

History isn’t on the Warriors’ side entering the game. Golden State has lost 32 games in a row in San Antonio, having not beaten the Spurs in San Antonio since February 14, 1997, when Stephen Curry was eight years old.

Trump Defends Brett Kavanaugh After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Resurface

Trump Defends Brett Kavanaugh After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Resurface

A new book by two New York Times reporters says there was more to an allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh than the Senate hearing uncovered.

President Donald Trump leapt to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Sunday after allegations of sexual misconduct that had once threatened to torpedo his nomination to the bench resurfaced.

“He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY,” Trump said on Twitter, referring to the accusations as “lies.” The president also accused critics of attempting to influence Kavanaugh’s opinions and suggested that Kavanaugh “start suing people for liable, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue.” (Trump apparently meant “libel,” and later re-issued the tweet with the correct spelling of the word.)

Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump after the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on the court. He was sworn in last October after a confirmation process that focused on the allegations — and the protests, controversy and high drama of the Senate hearing that followed.

Trump appeared to be reacting to an opinion-section article written by two New York Times reporters, published late Saturday, whose book on the Kavanaugh nomination will be published this week. In the book, which was summarized in Saturday’s article, the authors wrote that they had found new corroboration for accusations that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez, a classmate at Yale.

The book, written by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, also uncovered a new accusation. Citing two officials, the reporters said that a former Yale classmate told senators and the FBI about a different episode of alleged sexual misconduct.

NBC News has not verified the reporting released Sunday.

Kavanaugh has strongly denied the allegation by Ramirez as well as accusations by Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually assaulted her when the two were in high school.

“During his Senate testimony, Mr. Kavanaugh said that if the incident Ms. Ramirez described had occurred, it would have been ‘the talk of campus’,” the reporters wrote in the New York Times article. “Our reporting suggests that it was.”

Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath that the first time he heard of Ramirez’s allegation was in a Sept. 23 article in The New Yorker.

But according to text messages obtained last year by NBC News, in the days leading up to Ramirez’ public allegation Kavanaugh and his team were communicating behind the scenes with friends to refute the claim.

The FBI opened an expanded background investigation into Kavanaugh after pressure from Democrats in Congress initially delayed his confirmation process.

But dozens of people with potential information into the allegations against him were not contacted, according to multiple sources that include friends of both the nominee and his accusers.

Several members of the Senate Judiciary Commitee on Sunday spoke out about the new reporting, including Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who called for Kavanaugh to be impeached.

“I sat through those hearings,” Harris, a Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted. “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., called Kavanaugh’s confirmation process a “sham.”

“I strongly opposed him based on his views on executive power, which will continue to haunt our country, as well as how he behaved, including the allegations that we are hearing more about today,” Klobuchar, also a presidential candidate, told ABC’s “This Week.” “My concern here is that the process was a sham. I don’t think you can look at impeachment hearings without getting the documents. The House would have to get the documents. And the attorney general is shielding documents.”

“If you recall, we were given this moment just a few days every other hour to look at the documents related to other allegations that have been called in on the FBI tip line,” she continued, adding, “I think the whole thing was a sham and that those documents need to be turned over, as well as the documents that the White House hid from his time in the White House Counsel’s Office. All of that needs to come forward to even look at a proceeding like that.”

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told “This Week” that the new claims amounted to “an amazing level of reporting trying to just really dig up any dirt they can on the guy” adding the “far left” was “trying to smear” Kavanaugh.

“And you know what, I bet you the next Democratic debate, they’ll all be saying impeach Kavanaugh, impeach Trump,” Cruz said. “There’s nobody they don’t want to impeach. And at some point, they just have to let the anger go and recognize that the democratic process actually moves on. And I think it’s time for them to do that.”

Last October, Trump offered Kavanaugh and his family an unusual apology after attending his ceremonial swearing-in.

“On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure,” he said at the time.

Almost a year on, Kavanaugh’s tenure has been largely untroubled by the controversy. But the resurfacing of the allegations led to calls for renewed scrutiny against the judge, seemingly drawing Trump’s ire.
