What's the most wins an NBA team finishing 2nd in wins/loss in a conference has achieved?

This came to mind because the Dodgers recently set a record in the MLB for the most wins without winning a division title. And given that the Warriors and Suns are currently neck-and-neck in the West at 24-5, I was just curious what the record was for 2nd best record in a conference for the NBA.

Probably the Spurs in 2016, who went 67-15... finishing 6 games behind the record setting Warriors (73-9). That is tied for 7th all-time by winning percentage for any team.
