The Harlem Globetrotters are the proud owners of a 3,589-game winning streak. But even the legendary basketball team is starting to get worried about the remarkable run the Golden State Warriors are on.

Following the Warriors’ 131-123 triumph over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, the defending NBA champions are now 23-0 on the season and on a 27-game winning streak going back to the conclusion of last season.

The Globetrotters took to Twitter to both congratulate the Warriors for their stupefying run of dominance — albeit in a snarky manner — and also express a bit of trepidation about the NBA team making a run at their winning streak record.

Congrats to the @Warriors on their 27-game win streak. They’re now just 3,562 short of our current mark.

All kidding aside, given that the Warriors will have to face some stiff competition and not a long run of games against the Washington Generals in the coming days, weeks and months, the Globetrotters obviously needn’t worry too much about it.

But if the Warriors start conducting pregame warm-ups to the tune of  “Sweet Georgia Brown”? Well, look out.
