SIMULATION: 2015-16 Warriors vs. 1995-96 Bulls

Golden State made history on Wednesday night, finishing with the best regular season record in NBA history at 73-9. They eclipsed the 1995-96 Bulls, who previously held the record at 72-10.
Chicago cruised through the playoffs that season en route to winning the NBA Finals over Seattle, and would follow that up by winning the next two titles.
Golden State, looking to defend its crown from last year, seeks to finish off its historic season with another championship.
