The Golden State Warriors keep improving on their record start to the season, defeating the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday for the 20th straight win. Stephen Curry led Golden State to a 116-99 victory, scoring 40 points on 14-for-18 shooting, including 8-for-11 from behind the 3-point line and notching five assists and three rebounds.
Curry scored 28 in the fourth quarter, including 19 points in a four-minute stretch. The Hornets trailed by nine points at halftime, but it was 93-72 for Golden State at the end of the third quarter. Curry didn't need to re-enter the game after that, so he once again played only 31 minutes.
This was Curry's sixth 40-point performance of the season, so none of this feels particularly abnormal. This dominance is almost boring to talk about at this point, but it remains extremely exciting to watch. A piece of advice: Don't miss a single Warriors game.
