The Golden State Warriors registered the best start in NBA history with their sixteenth straight victory in a blowout win over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

The outcome of the game was never really in doubt after the Warriors raced out to a 19-point lead in the first quarter, ultimately cruising to a 111-77 win.

The Warriors’ historic win broke the previous record of 15-0 starts held by the 1948-49 Washington Capitols and 1993-94 Houston Rockets.

The Warriors will now seek to match the record for consecutive victories during an NBA regular season, which is 33 games, set by the 1972 Lakers.

With the loss, the hapless Lakers move to 2-12. Starting forward Kobe Bryant was held to just four points.
