After losing the first two games of the NBA season by 26 and 39 points (respectively), it looked like the Golden State Warriors was headed straight (back) to the NBA lottery. However, it now appears that Two Time, NBA MVP Stephen Curry, has bigger aspirations and has risen to the occasion.
In the Warriors first two loses, Curry scored 20 then 19 points. Afterwards he dropped 36 points on the Chicago Bulls to help the Warriors get their first win of the NBA Season. He then followed up with an 31 point performance on the Detroit Pistons, which gave the Warriors their second win of the NBA season.
Three nights later, Curry struggled to score 26, on the Portland TrailBlazers, as he shot 9-21 from the floor, and 2-12 from behind the three point line. The game ended with the Blazers beating the Warriors 123-98 at home.
The two teams faced each other two nights later at Golden State, and Stephen Curry posted a career high 62 points, as his team beat the Portland TrailBlazers in a 137-122 blowout.
The Sacramento Kings, came into the Chase Center to face Golden State (The very next night), and it only took a red hot Stephen Curry, 31 minutes to score 30 points on them.
The win gives the Warriors an 4-3 record, and the sixth best record in the Western Conferences.
