(Newser) – Kawhi Leonard had 26 points and the San Antonio Spurs had to rally at the AT&T Center to beat the short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder 102-98 in overtime Tuesday night to finish 40-1 at home this season, matching an NBA record, the AP reports. The Boston Celtics had the same record in 1985-86. San Antonio came close to surpassing the Celtics' record, but they had their first home loss of the season to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Golden State, meanwhile, are on the verge of making their season even more historic. The win over San Antonio matched the 72-win record set by the Chicago Bulls in 1995-96, and victory over the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday would give them win No. 73.
