Stephen Curry leads the Warriors to their best start with 73 wins

SACRAMENTO – Stephen Curry completed his third double-double in a row while the Warriors remained undefeated with a 119-107 win over the Sacramento Kings. Almost like 2015-16 again. Only 21 years left.

At 3-0, the Warriors have their best start since their record 73-wins campaign six seasons ago, which they started with 24 straight losses before their first defeat. And this was helped by old-time Curry, who converted his third double-double in the same number of games with 27 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds to help Golden State pull away late from Golden1 Center.

Three games in a season, Curry is only one game away before tying his personal best for double-doubles in a row. He also became the first warrior and 69th player in NBA history, making 5,000 assists in his first-half career to Damion Lee.

Third-year defender Jordan Poole secured a productive spark behind Curry with 22 points, followed by Andrew Wiggins with 17 points (including a clutch, contested shot to keep the Warriors’ lead in the fourth quarter) and Draymond Green with 14 (plus seven assists and five boards ).

Harrison Barnes’ breakaway dunk by the end of the third quarter sparked the home crowd and could become a dagger in Dubs. But Curry immediately responded with three-pointers, betting on a draw. He tried it again and missed, but Otto Porter Jr. was there to take it away for 2 points and a lead that the Warriors never gave up completely.

Without Curry on the floor, the Warriors fell in another hole in the first half. When he sat down to his usual rest in the second quarter, the Kings turned a draw into an eight point deficit for Golden State.

Almost a whole quarter passed between the fragments of the Warriors.

But Golden State regained control of the game even before the break.

The Warriors increased their assists (20-8), did not send Sacramento to the penalty line often (13 attempts) and in their third game in a row showed at least 50 rebounds (53, corresponding to Sacramento). Nevertheless, the decision on the game remained uncertain until the last minutes of the fourth quarter.

Three quarters of the Kings were almost impossible to stop from the field. They connected on 34 of their first 64 shot attempts (53.1%), the highest success rate of any Warriors rival this season, but was capped at 8 of 22 (36.4%) in the final period.
