The Warriors are off to a historic start to the 2015-16 season. No NBA team had ever started 16-0. Now they are up to 20-0 after beating the Hornets Wednesday night in Charlotte.
They've matched the 1884 St. Louis Maroons baseball team of the Union Association for the longest season-opening win-streak in North American professional sports.
They've run their overall regular season winning streak to 24, including the final four games of the 2014-15 season, the third longest in NBA history.

But there was a little Bay Area history at stake Wednesday.
Their 116-99 win over the Hornets also equaled a Bay Area record for most consecutive wins in a single season, tying the memorable 2002 A's, who won 20 straight games.
The Warriors can set the new Bay Area record with a win over the Raptors Saturday in Toronto.
