Today in Sports History: April 16

By Jonah Sharf

On April 16, 1996, the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 86-80 for their 70th win of the season, passing the 1972 Lakers NBA record of 69 wins in one season — their record of 72 wins was bettered in 2015-16 by the Golden State Warriors. This was at the height of the Bulls’ 90s dynasty led by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. The Bulls teams of this era are considered some of the best of all time, only approached by teams such as the aforementioned Warriors and Lakers.
