The Warriors defense clamped down, limiting Brooklyn to just two points in overtime while five different players scored for them.
Along with an 11-0 start to the season, Golden State has been propped up by an even more impressive performance from Stephen Curry following his MVP campaign from a year ago.
Curry — the NBA’s leading scorer with 367 points, the most in the first 11 games of the season since Michael Jordan poured in 387 to start the 1992-93 campaign — has become the most unstoppable scorer in the league.
Even as the shot clock is winding down, Curry is clutch. With four seconds or less remaining on the shot clock, Curry is converting 66.3 percent of his long range shots and half of his total attempts.
Just about anything Curry tosses up finds its way to the bottom of the net.
For the year, Curry is averaging 33.4 points, 5.6 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game. His excellent play has the Warriors in contention for the best start in league history.
