STEPH CURRY SCORED 19 points then got plenty of help so he could take the fourth quarter off as the Golden State Warriors improved to 18-0 with a 120-101 win over Sacramento.

Forward Brandon Rush drained three three-pointers in the third-quarter, and Curry finished with three three-pointers on the night, as the Warriors kept their perfect start to the season intact and equaled the 2007-08 Houston Rockets with a 22nd consecutive regular-season win dating back to last season.

The Warriors now embark on a seven-game trip, during which they will be chasing the 27-game winning streak set by the Miami Heat during the 2012-13 season.

The Los Angeles Lakers hold the all-time record of 33 straight wins, set during the 1971-72 season.

Forward Draymond Green recorded the franchise’s first back-to-back triple-double in 51 years with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists. The last Warriors player to record triple-doubles in consecutive games had been Hall of Fame center Wilt Chamberlain in 1964.

Green contributed 14 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in Friday’s 135-116 win at Phoenix.
