There is No Stopping Us; Golden State Improves to 17-0

By Francisco Romero

The Golden State Warriors took their show on the road and beat the Phoenix Suns 135-116 to improve to 17-0 on the season and setting a new record for the best start in NBA history.

The Warriors relied on their perimeter game in the victory; they finished with a franchise record making 22 three-pointers in 38 attempts, at the same time setting a league record with the most three-pointers in a half with 15.

Golden State did not hesitate from start to finish as they held the lead throughout the whole game.

After one quarter, the Warriors led 44-27.

Golden State’s Stephen Curry finished the game with 41 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists; Curry only played three quarters.

Draymond Green finished the game with a triple-double; he scored 14 points, grabbed 10 rebound and 10 assists.

Former Suns’ player Leandro Barbosa added 21 points, scoring all of his 5 three-point attempts.

The Suns’ backcourt went toe to toe with their Golden State counterparts, but fell short.

Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight combined to finish the night with 42 points and 12 assists.

“I think we can go out there and compete with anybody and do what it takes,” said Bledsoe after the game.

With Fridays’s victory, Golden State has now 21 straight regular season wins dating back to last season making them the fourth NBA team in league history to reach 21 or more victories in a row.

On Saturday the Warriors will be playing their second game in a row by hosting the Sacramento Kings.

The Kings will also be playing back to back as they hosted the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night and losing.

The Warriors will most likely be without Harrison Barnes who suffered a sprained ankle against the Suns on Friday.

The Phoenix Suns will visit the Raptors on Sunday.
