The Golden State Warriors earned their 60th win of the 2015-16 campaign Monday against the New Orleans Pelicans, becoming the first team in NBA history to reach the 60-victory plateau in its 66th game of a season, per Sportsnet Stats.

The previous record of 67 games was held by none other than the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, the team the Warriors are chasing for the NBA record for most wins in a single season.

That Bulls team, of course, finished its campaign with a 72-10 record, eventually winning a third consecutive NBA title behind a 15-3 record in the playoffs.

The Warriors need to win 13 of their final 16 contests to set a new league record with 73 wins, but it could be a rather difficult task, as the team still has three games remaining against the San Antonio Spurs (57-10), with two of those games coming on the road in San Antonio.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook recorded his NBA-leading 12th triple-double of the season in Monday's 128-94 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, becoming the first player since Jason Kidd in 2007-08 to post a dozen or more triple-doubles in a single campaign, per NBA.com/stats.

Kidd actually accomplished the feat in both 2006-07 and 2007-08, but prior to that, Grant Hill (1996-97) and Magic Johnson (1990-91) were the last two players with 12 or more triple-doubles in a season.

Westbrook joined the club with an unusually efficient performance Monday night, putting up 17 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds without any turnovers, also making seven of his 11 field-goal attempts and adding two steals and a block.

He thus joined Magic Johnson and Scott Skiles as the only players since 1983-84 to have 16 or more assists and zero turnovers in a triple-double performance, per NBA.com/stats.

Detroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin scored his 20th goal of the season during Thursday's 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets, becoming the first Red Wings rookie to record a 20-goal campaign since Henrik Zetterberg had 22 tallies in 2002-03, per Sportsnet Stats.

Previously in the midst of a seven-game point drought, the impressive 19-year-old provided Detroit's first goal Thursday night, sparking a comeback from an early 2-0 deficit.

Though he's slowed down quite a bit as the season has worn on, Larkin surprisingly still leads his team in goals, with his 20 assists good for sixth-best on the squad.

Chicago Blackhawks left wing Artemi Panarin is the only member of the impressive 2015-16 rookie class with more goals than Larkin, having scored 25 times to go along with a rookie-leading 37 assists.

The San Antonio Spurs extended their home winning streak to 40 games with Thursday's 108-101 victory over the Chicago Bulls, tying the Shaquille O'Neal-era Orlando Magic (1994-96) for the third-longest home winning streak in NBA history, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The incredible run dates back to March 12, 2015, when the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off a 128-125 overtime victory in San Antonio with the help of a career-high 57 points from star point guard Kyrie Irving.

Of course, the Spurs' streak has been overshadowed by a more impressive run, with the Golden State Warriors entering Friday as owners of an NBA-record 46-game home winning streak that dates back to Jan. 27, 2015.

Interestingly enough, Golden State's last home loss also came in an overtime game, as the Chicago Bulls needed an extra period to eke out a 113-111 win behind 30 points from point guard Derrick Rose.

San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan recorded the 15,000th rebound of his career during Thursday's 109-101 win over the Chicago Bulls, becoming just the sixth player in NBA history to achieve the milestone, per NBA on Twitter.

The 39-year-old big man otherwise had an unassuming night, finishing with just seven points, three boards, four assists and two steals in 28 minutes, making three of his seven field-goal attempts and one of his three free throws.

Duncan's current averages of 8.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 25.2 minutes are by far the lowest of his career in each category, yet his Spurs own their best-ever record (55-10) through 65 games, with forwards Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge picking up all of the slack and then some.

Of course, Duncan is still a solid contributor on a per-minute basis, and his reduced statistical output is largely the product of a concerted effort to keep him in tip-top shape for the postseason.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was initially credited with a historic stat line in Wednesday's 120-108 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, becoming the first player since Magic Johnson (in 1988) to record 25-plus points, 10-plus rebounds and 20-plus assists in a single game, per NBA History on Twitter.

However, with one of his assists removed upon further review, the 27-year-old superstar technically finished with only 25 points, 11 boards and 19 dimes in 37 minutes, also turning the ball over seven times.

Unsurprisingly, the new stat line is nearly as rare, with no player since Johnson in 1988 going for 25, 10 and 19 in the same contest

The round number may have made Westbrook's performance sound better, but there have still been just eight 25-10-19 performances in the NBA since 1983-84, with three of those games including 20-plus assists.

With the official announcement of his retirement on Tuesday morning, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will finish his career as the owner of multiple NFL records, though he likely could have added a few more to the list if he'd kept playing.

Most notably, he set the NFL single-season mark for receiving yards in 2012, catching 122 passes for 1,964 yards, albeit with just five touchdowns.

The 2012 campaign marked his third of six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons to finish out his career, with Johnson averaging a remarkable 1,425 receiving yards over that span.

Per Sportsnet Stats, Johnson holds the NFL records for most consecutive 100-yard receiving games (eight), most receiving yards in a five-game span (861) and most consecutive games with 10 or more catches (four), having set each of those marks during his historic 2012 campaign.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard recorded his 1,500th point and 400th assist of the 2015-16 season during Tuesday's 116-109 overtime win over the Washington Wizards. Lillard joined Oscar Robertson and LeBron James as the only players in NBA history to reach both of those milestones in each of their first four seasons, per the Trail Blazers PR Twitter account.

The 25-year-old point guard accomplished the feat in impressive fashion, putting up 41 points, 11 assists and five rebounds over 44 minutes Tuesday night, converting 12 of his 25 field-goal attempts, six of his 13 three-point attempts and 11 of his 12 shots from the charity stripe.

He also added a steal and only turned the ball over one time, with his efficient performance making up for an off night from fellow Blazers guard C.J. McCollum, who finished with 18 points, two assists, three rebounds and a game-high six turnovers.

Lillard has now scored 20 or more points in 15 consecutive games, marking the longest such streak by a Trail Blazers player since Brandon Roy also strung together 15 straight 20-point performances during the 2009-10 season, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Much has been made of the Golden State Warriors' pursuit of 73 or more wins this season to oust the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls as the most dominant regular-season team in NBA history. But regardless of whether the Warriors unseat the Bulls or not, they have already made history this season with their record-breaking 45-game home win streak. Relive their incredible streak in the video above.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry took sole possession of an all-time NBA record during Thursday's 130-114 win over the Orlando Magic, recording his 128th consecutive regular-season game with at least one three-pointer made, per NBA History.

The old record of 127 games was set by Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver, who made at least one three-point shot in every appearance between Nov. 4, 2012 and March 2, 2014, obliterating the longstanding mark of 89 games that was set by Dana Barros as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics from 1994 to 1996, per GSWStats.

Curry didn't exactly limp to the new record, making 10 of his 15 three-point attempts (and 20 of his 27 field-goal attempts) in a 51-point, seven-rebound, eight-assist performance on Thursday night.

Per Elias Sports Bureau (h/t ESPN Stats & Info), he became the first player in NBA history to record a 50-point performance with one or fewer free-throw attempts, with his lone try from the charity stripe completing an and-1 play at the end of the first quarter.
