While the Golden State Warriors are looking like the best team in the NBA and are almost unbeatable at home, they will be going on the road soon and I think there will be multiple times to fade them. Steph Curry is on fire and shooting lights out and expected to break the single season 3-pt FG’s made record by over 200 at the pace he is on. The Warriors have been winning and Klay Thompson has yet to play well. How scary is that?
Curry has 30 points in five of his first six games, the first Warriors player to do so since Hall of Famer Rick Barry in 1974-75. Hall of Famer Chris Mullin was the last player with 25 in each of the season’s first six games (1990-91).
Curry made a 3-pointer in his 79th straight game, matching Michael Adams for the third-longest streak in NBA history.
Curry knocked down eight 3s and is shooting more of them for Golden State, which had opened defense of its title with five straight games against Western Conference playoff teams from last season.
In closing, while Golden State has been a great bet this season, I do think they will cool off and the linesmakers will have to adjust the lines so much, that we can now start to get value with the opposing team. I expect the Warriors to slip when they hit a long road trip.
