For the week of Monday, Nov. 16 – Sunday, Nov. 22

Record: 4-0

With victories over the Pistons, Grizzlies, Timberwolves and Nets, the Warriors put together their third consecutive undefeated week and now sit as the 11th team in NBA history to begin a season with an 11-0 record. They’re also the fourth defending champion to begin a season 11-0, and of those previous three, only one team did not repeat as champions. That team was the 1957-58 Boston Celtics who, after losing in the Finals in six games, won the title the next eight years in a row. So, while it’s still far too early to even begin talking about a repeat, this torrid start has placed the Warriors in some very select company.
