OAKLAND – Now that the Warriors are in the NBA record books as the first team in league history to win its first 16 games, every victory without a loss adds separation between them and the past.
Here are some of the relevant numbers through Tuesday night's win over the Lakers:
1.9: Assists per turnover, tops in the NBA.
12.4: 3-point field goals per game, highest in the NBA.
15.6: Point differential through the first 16 games, highest since the 1996-97 Chicago Bulls posted a 16.0 differential while going 15-1 through their first 16 games.
16: The obvious one, the much-publicized total of wins achieved through 16 games.
20: Not so obvious. This is the total of regular-season wins the Warriors have rang since losing at New Orleans last April 7. Win streaks carry over from year to year.
27: Number of consecutive wins at Oracle Arena. The last home loss occurred on Jan. 27, a 113-111 defeat at the hands of the Chicago Bulls.
28.8: 3-point shooting percentage by opponents, lowest in the NBA.
29.6: Number of assists the Warriors are averaging per game, 3.3 more than second-place Atlanta.
42.4: Opponents overall field-goal percentage, fourth lowest in the NBA.
89: Number of consecutive games in which Steph Curry has made a 3-point shot.
100: The Warriors have reached that point total in all 16 games.
114.3: Number of points the Warriors are averaging per game, 4.5 more than second-place Oklahoma City.
