The Warriors were 68-7 and 36-0 at home this season.
But they've lost two of their last three at Oracle Arena and need to win all four of their remaining games to break the 1995-96 Bulls record for most wins in a single season in NBA history.
Is the pressure of making history wearing on Golden State?
"I don't think so," Steph Curry said after the Warriors' 114-107 overtime loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night. "We put ourselves in position that it's a realistic goal. Gotta embrace the challenge. It's obviously not easy to get it done. We're proving that right now. But I don't think it's anything that's weighing us down or anything like that on the floor.
"We just haven't played well in two of the last three home games, and it's amplified now because we're so close to the goal."
Last Friday night against the Celtics, the Warriors turned it over 22 times -- resulting in 27 points for Boston.
Last night, the Warriors turned it over 23 times -- which resulted in 31 points for the Timberwolves.
Golden State started the game up 27-12, and led 71-54 midway through the third quarter.
"We had a pretty good first half, and then second half -- turnovers kind of got us," Curry explained. "We had a tough time getting established on the defensive end, I think the turnovers got them into transition so we couldn't set our defense.
"It was just one of those nights where we didn't have a punch back to stop the momentum that they were building down the stretch once they got back into the game. Tough night."
In the first 24 minutes, Curry registered two points and 10 assists. He was 0-for-8 from the floor and 0-for-5 from deep.
In the third quarter, Curry scored 12 points on 4-for-6 shooting and 4-for-5 from 3-point territory.
But in the fourth quarter and overtime combined, Curry made just 3-of-11 shots for seven points.
"The first half -- shooting the ball was kind of out of the ordinary," Curry said. "Shots I normally make, and wasn't really concerned about it. Down the stretch in the fourth quarter -- probably wanted to kind of take my time a little bit more and get to my spots. Control the possessions a little bit better.
"Overall, I thought I was able to bounce back from that crazy weird shooting in the first half and have some impact on the game. But down the stretch, I just gotta slow down a little bit."
As the Warriors look to rewrite the record books, how tough is it to maintain the necessary energy and focus on a night in and night out basis?
"There's a reason no team has been in the position that we are, with a realistic chance of breaking that record," Curry answered. "It is challenging. I think we've excelled at the consistent focus over the course of the season, but for any team down the stretch leading into the playoffs, this is where you want to get right, sharpen up the details of what we do.
"And regardless how much focus it's taken to get to this point, I think we have a lot left in the tank to finish it out these last four games and then these last two and a half months leading into the goal of winning a championship.
"It can't be an excuse that we put ourselves in this situation and now it's draining us to finish. I think we're mature enough and we have enough of an edge to get it done."
The Warriors lead the Spurs by 3.5 games for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.
Golden State hosts San Antonio on Thursday night, and plays the Spurs in Texas on Sunday night.
The Dubs play at Memphis on Saturday, and host the Grizzlies in the season finale next Wednesday.
"We'll be ourselves hopefully sooner than later," Curry added. "We're not invincible, so we have to play our game at that top notch level that we need to win. We just didn't have it (against Minnesota), and know this is what can happen if we don't bring it."
