The Golden Warriors upped their road record to 18-3 (.857 winning percentage) this season with a 108-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks last night in Milwaukee.
Should the Warriors continue at this pace in road games the rest of this season, they could seriously challenge the NBA record for highest winning percentage in road games in a season. The Warriors set the mark back in the 2015-16 season when they finished the year at 34-7 in away games, an .829 winning percentage.
Four NBA teams have ended a season with a winning percentage at or above .800 in a season. In addition to the 2015-16 Warriors, the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers were 31-7 (.816), the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls went 33-8 (.805) on the road, and the 1972-73 Boston Celtics were 32-8 (.800) in away games.
Since the 2012-13 season, the Warriors have been the NBA’s best road team with a record of 154-72 (.681 winning percentage). Here are the NBA teams that have a winning record in road games since 2012-13…
