NBA -- GSW off to their best start since '91-92 season


PhilBoxing.com




SAN FRANCISCO -- After last season's disappointing 23-43 finish, the Golden State Warriors were optimistic that they would make strides and compete in the talent-loaded Western Conference.

But 29 games into this season, no one could have imagined that they would be this good. Not only are the 19-10 Warriors off to their best start since the 1991-92 campaign, they are in pretty good shape to make the NBA playoffs this coming April.

After losing to the Los Angeles Lakers - 118-115 - last December 21, the Warriors rebounded solidly on Wednesday night and easily dispatched the Utah Jazz, 94-83, at the Energy Solutions Arena.

As has been Golden State's theme almost all throughout this season, Stephen Curry led the way with 23 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. He guided the Warriors to a lead that would eventually balloon to 88-66 with 6:25 left in the final quarter.

"The guy's an All-Star. There's no question about it. Playing at an elite level. Defending. Being a maestro for us at the offensive end. Attacking. It's great to see him healthy and really being a catalyst for this basketball team and all the success we've had," Warriors head coach Mark Jackson told NBA.com of this team's sparkplug.

Beating Utah, however, required more than just Curry's all-around play. David Lee also had 18 points and nine rebounds while point guard Jarrett Jack and Klay Thompson chipped in 15 each for the Warriors.

Al Jefferson paced the Jazz with 18 points and 10 rebounds while Paul Millsap added 14 and seven rebounds. But the Jazz shot only 32 of 83 field goals (38.6 percent) and 4-for-17 from three-point range (23.5 percent).

With the loss, Utah fell down the bottom of the Western Conference's Northwest Division with a 15-15 record. (JSM)
