Steph Curry vs Emmanuel Mudiay, Warriors Tie Record For Best Start In NBA History
The main story was obviously the Warriors chasing the record for best start in NBA history and when the night was over the Warriors were tied with the 48/49 Washington Capitals and 93/94 Rockets with a 15-0 start. But a fun side story was the match-up between MVP candidate Steph Curry and Rookie of the Year candidate Emmanuel Mudiay.
Curry finished with a human-like 19 points and 7 assists in just 28 minutes and Mudiay had 17 and 8 but missed 15 of 21 shots.
Tonight it was all about the streak but for years to come the main story might become the match-up between the two guards – which is fine with Danilo Gallinari who isn’t looking forward to guarding Steph one-on-one again.
“It’s a huge accomplishment,” Curry said the record start. “Obviously, coming off a championship and taking care of business 15 straight times to start the season — couldn’t ask for a better start.
It’s kind of a quiet confidence that we don’t feel like we’re going to lose anytime soon. The way we’re playing … we can get even better.”
And higher…you know Steph wanted to dunk this!
