REIGNING NBA CHAMPIONS the Golden State Warriors are rolling like a well-oiled machine, extending their record setting start with a 135-116 rout of the host Phoenix Suns last night.

In what is becoming the status quo for the mighty Warriors, guard Stephen Curry scored 41 points and made nine three-pointers as they stretched their unbeaten streak to start the season to an NBA-record 17 games.

The Warriors had a season-high in points and made a season-high 22 three-pointers and shot 56.8% from the field, 57.9% on three-point attempts.

Curry said they are attracting new fans where ever they go.

“It was packed in our section,” Curry said. “Dub Nation is growing by the day.

It’s fun to see on the road. Even some ‘Let’s go Warrior’ chants during the game. And we played well to back it up.

Reserve guard Leandro Barbosa had 21 points and made all five of his three-point attempts for Golden State, who set the NBA record for consecutive wins at the start of the season against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Reigning league MVP Curry drained a season-high nine three-pointers and added eight assists and six rebounds at Talking Stick Resort Arena. He made nine-of-16 three-point attempts.

“A lot of that is based on our ball movement,” Curry said.

We shoot a lot of threes, but we like to shoot a lot of good ones. Ball movement leads to in-rhythm shots. I knew we made a lot.”

“They shoot threes like layups,” Phoenix forward Markieff Morris said.
