The 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors set a franchise record with their first undefeated full calendar month following Monday night's 106-103 win at Utah, finishing the November slate with a perfect 16-0 mark. The Warriors are the sixth team in the NBA’s 70-year history to finish a month of at least 16 games with an undefeated record.

Golden State’s 16 wins in November also ties the franchise mark for most wins in a month, set last season when the Warriors posted a 16-2 ledger in March 2015. Golden State’s winning percentage this month tops the club’s previous record of .929 (13-1), set in January 1972 behind former Warriors guard Jim Barnett’s averages of 16.0 points, 5.6 assists and 4.0 rebounds on 50.3 percent shooting from the field.

With Monday night's win, the Warriors have extended the best start in NBA history by beginning the season with a 19-0 record. Dating back to 2014-15, the Warriors have won 23-straight regular-season games (19-straight this season, four-straight to end last season), extending a franchise-record streak and becoming the third team in NBA history to win 23 consecutive regular-season contests. The Warriors have also won nine-straight regular-season road games, the second-longest regular-season road winning streak in franchise history behind only the team’s record of 10-straight wins away from home set last season.
