There’s no place like home. Just ask the Golden State Warriors.

Stephen Curry scored 41 points as the Warriors set an NBA record with their 45th consecutive home win, a 119-113 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday.

The Warriors responded from an embarrassing loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday to improve to 56-6, the best start in NBA history.

Here’s a look at some of the numbers behind the Warriors’ record-setting win:

36: According to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, the Warriors now have a 36.3 percent chance to win at least 73 games and break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ mark for best record in NBA history.

87: Looking forward, the Warriors have five more games left on this homestand. According to BPI, Golden State has at least an 87 percent chance to win each of those games.

6: The Warriors have not lost back-to-back games this season and improved to 6-0 this season following a loss. No team in NBA history has made it through an entire season without losing back-to-back games.

301: Curry went 7-for-12 on 3-pointers Monday, giving him 301 3-point field goals this season. He is the first player in NBA history to make 300 3-pointers in a season.

46: Curry averaged 46 points per game against the Magic this season, tied with Kobe Bryant's 2005-06 against the Toronto Raptors (the 81-point-game year) for the fourth-highest single-season scoring average against a particular opponent in the past 20 seasons, according to Elias Sports Bureau (minimum two games). Curry has also averaged 46.5 points per game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

68: Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 68 points Monday. That’s 35 more points than the Splash Brothers had in Sunday’s loss to the Lakers. Curry and Thompson went 12-of-24 from the arc after going 1-of-18 in their previous game.

24: It wasn’t all positive. The Warriors overcame 24 turnovers, tied for their most this season. Those turnovers led to 23 points for the Magic.
