Steph Curry Nets 45 Points on Eight 3s as Warriors Start Season 2-0

A triple-header of NBA games took over Thursday night’s action in the Association, and Steph Curry made a statement in Golden State. Curry (45 points) buried eight 3s (8-for-13) before icing the Clippers with a pair of free throws in the finals seconds of the Warriors’ win (115-113). Golden State became the first team to reach 2-0 on Night 3 of the season, and they’re still without injured Klay Thompson, who is expected to return later this year. Curry’s dazzling shooting night was just another reminder that the greatest shooter in NBA history is just 33 years old with plenty left to give.
