The Golden State Warriors are one of only two NBA teams in the modern era to begin a season 15-0 after beating the Denver Nuggets 118-105 on Sunday. Although the Nuggets stayed in the game through three quarters, Golden State turned the game into a blowout in the fourth.
The Warriors join the 1993-94 Houston Rockets and the 1948-49 Washington Capitols as the only teams to win their first 15 games and can set a new record on Tuesday with a home game against the Lakers. It's worth noting that the Rockets beat the New York Knicks in the NBA Finals that year.

The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) is optimistic that the Philippines will be named one of the three hosts for an Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT) for a berth in the Rio de Janeiro Games next year.
The Philippines along with Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Iran, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Serbia, and Turkey are in the running to host the three six-team OQTs, which will run for six days in July 2016, according to FIBA.
Gilas Pilipinas may be facing a tall order as it tries to grab one of the three Olympic slots in the qualifying tournament in July 2016, but veteran national player LA Tenorio strongly believes the national team has a big chance of making it back to the Summer Games.
And the speedy Barangay Ginebra guard points to national coach Tab Baldwin as the biggest reason for that.
