Golden State Warriors Set NBA Record For Best Start To A Season

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors were met with LITTLE resistance last night en route to their 16th straight win to start the 2015-16 season, setting a new NBA record. 

Curry, who finished with a game-high 24 points, nine assists, four rebounds, and he was a +36 on the night. The reigning MVP is on pace for roughly 400 3-point field goals made this season, which would shatter the record he set last year of 286.

The 111-77 victory over the lousy Lakers was as much about how dominant the reigning champs looked as it was about how dreadful Kobe Bryant and the Lakers played. 

To put it in perspective, Curry made as many field goals [10] as the entire Lakers starting lineup made combined. 

The Black Mamba shot just 1-14 from the floor, including a handful of air balls, tying his worst field goal % in a game of his career [with a minimum of 10 shots].

Kobe (1/3): “I could’ve scored 80 tonight & it wouldn’t have made a damn difference. We have bigger problems…”

Kobe (2/3): “I could be out there averaging 35 points a game & we would be what, 3-11? See what I’m saying?”

Kobe (3/3): “We’ve got to figure out how to play systematically in a position that’s going to keep us in ball games.” (on @TWCSportsNet)

Next up for the Warriors is a matchup against the 7-7 Suns, before meetings with the Kings and Jazz. No exaggeration, there’s a real chance this team heads into a Christmas Day matchup against the Cavaliers as an undefeated team.
