On April 1 of this year, the Golden State Warriors were 37-0 at Oracle Arena. That same day, the San Antonio Spurs were also 38-0 at the AT&T Center (they got to 39-0 the next evening). After winning their first 75 home games combined, the two squads were just sevens victories away from putting together simultaneous undefeated seasons in their own buildings.

Those Celtics ran the table at the Garden in the playoffs and won the title with an overall home record of 50-1. The Spurs had an opportunity to top Larry Bird's squad from 30 years ago, with the potential to get as high as 56-1 depending on how the postseason played out.
But after falling to the Thunder in Game 2 of their second-round series on Monday, San Antonio is now 43-2 on its own floor, and the 1985-86 Celtics still lay claim to the greatest home season in NBA history.
