22 41 44 67 71 101 | Spurs vs Warriors, April 10, 2016 & Final Team Records for 2015-16 NBA Season thoughts


The Warriors and Cavs face off for the final time later today, April 10, 2016.  The Spurs are attempting to become the first team to go undefeated at home.  Going 41-0 at home is interesting in light of them playing in a building that is named after 'AT&T'.

AT&T = 1+20+20 = 41
41-0...

To go 41-0 at home, they will have to beat the Warriors today, and Oklahoma City Thunder in the coming days.  They have one other game on the road, against Dallas.

Anyhow, if they beat the Warriors todays, I have a feeling the Warriors will finish the season with 71-wins, where they now stand.  Recall how the Spurs, earlier this year, won 44-games in a row at home, with #44 coming against the Warriors.  '44' has been a big number all year for Golden State, who are in their 44th year of being in the city.

Recall the connection between 44 and 71?


And one last point about the records of the Spurs and Warriors.  If the Spurs finish at 67 wins, it could be a tribute to Greg Popovich, the longtime coach of the team, who is currently 67-years old.  Let us not forget the Spurs joined the NBA in '76.


Today's game comes 22-days after they last played in San Antonio, or 3-weeks and 1-day.

Basketball = 2+1+1+2+5+2+2+1+3+3 = 22/31


Also notice that they last times the teams played, San Antonio lost with 101 points.  Todays' rematch is the 101st day of the year.


Tonight will be the 160th game between the two teams.  The Spurs lead the series 104-55.

Meanwhile in the East, I think if they Cavs finish the season with 57-wins, it could bode well for their championship hopes.  They have two games remaining, against the Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons.
