Behind Golden State Warriors success… there’s Stephen Curry. The starting point guard and the reigning NBA MVP drops 28 points against Brooklyn Nets as the Warriors improves its winning record to 22-0.
The hottest team in the history of NBA had a huge lead against Brooklyn Nets (30-16) at the end of the first quarter behind Curry‘s hot shooting but the Nets rallied back in the second quarter and cuts the deficit to three points at the end of the first half.
The second half story was a roller coaster ride for both the Nets and Warriors but at the end Golden State record remains flawless and the pile for the most win to start an NBA season keeps rising.
“That’s what great players can do. Plus, he has a great team,” Nets coach Lionel Hollins said. “He doesn’t have to go out there and do it all the time. Last night he had 44. Two nights ago when they were in Charlotte he had 43. When he needs to he can and when he doesn’t need to he takes a backseat to those guys.”
Stephen Curry led all scorers with 28 points while Draymond Green teases another triple-double performance with 22 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists. Thaddeus Young scored 25 points and grabbed 14 boards for the Nets while teammate Brook Lopez chipped in 18 points and 8 rebounds.
