Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors made history by having the best start in NBA history! The Warriors faced the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 24, and only won but did it in the most dominating way, crushing the Lake Show by 34 points!
It’s the question on every basketball fan’s mind: could anyone stop the Golden State Warriors? Stephen Curry, 27, and the rest of the defending NBA Champions looked invincible at the start of the NBA season. After going 15-0, the undefeated Warriors wanted the record for Best Start in the league’s history, and boy did they get it. They demolished the Los Angeles Lakers in a blowout 111 – 77 win where Golden State owned every quarter!
The Warriors were looking for win number “Sweet Sixteen” when they hosted the Los Angeles Lakers at the Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Nov. 24, and they got it in spades, absolutely dominating the Lake Show the entire game with double digit leads for most of it. When the final horn blew, The Warriors came out on top with a score of 111 – 77 against the lowly Lakers.
The Warriors went into this game with a perfect record. Their 15 straight wins tied them with the 1948-49 Washington Capitols and the 1993-94 Houston Rockets for the best starting record in the league’s history, reports ESPN. On the other hand, the Lakers had the second-worst record in the NBA, with eleven losses and just two victories. Despite the efforts of coach Byron Scott, the team looks nothing like when Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom led them to the championships in 2010.
It seems with this win, Steph’s rivalry with the Rockets’ James Harden continues. With this win, Steph’s Warriors have taken the Best Start record away from James’s Rockets. Stephen eliminated James and the Rockets from the 2014-15 NBA playoffs. Stephen also took home the MVP award and the ESPY for Best Male Athlete. However, James shockingly won the NBPA award for MVP instead of Stephen.
Though, the question on everyone’s mind is: how will Steph’s daughter, Riley Curry, react to her daddy’s milestone victory? Riley was the REAL MVP of the NBA Finals, taking over the post-game news conferences and stealing the spotlight from her daddy during the championship celebrations. Plus, she may even be a better dancer than her father.
What do you think about the game, HollywoodLifers? Do you think anyone will stop the Warriors from winning back-to-back championships?
