A 50-point win for Stephen Curry and the defending Hau'oli Kikaha Jerseychampion Warriors and the season isn't even a week old.
''It's surprising,'' Curry said. ''I don't remember the last time that's ever happened to any guys on this team, being on the winning side of a 50-point game.''
Curry scored 21 of his 30 points in an emphatic third-quarter stretch and the reigning NBA MVP http://www.saintsshopnfl.com/Authentic-Hauoli-Kikaha-Jerseyfollowed up his 53-point performance from the weekend with another gem to lead unbeaten Golden State past the Memphis Grizzlies 119-69 on Monday night.
Curry did not play in the fourth quarter with his team up big after shooting 10 for 16 and hitting four 3-pointers to give him 21 through four games - even after Grizzlies coach David Joerger joked before the game, ''We're going to put three guys on him tonight.''
The Grizzlies were outscored 72-27 over the second and third quarters on the way to the worst defeat in franchise history.
Festus Ezeli added 11 points and 10 rebounds filling in for injured center Andrew Bogut, and Curry scored 16 straight points during one stretch in Golden State's franchise-record 20th straight win at Oracle Arena. It was the team's first 50-point win since exactly 24 years earlier when the Warriors beat Sacramento 153-91 on Nov. 2, 1991.
The Grizzlies starters combined to shoot 11 Allen Hurns Jerseyfor 46, led by Marc Gasol's 13 points.
''That's a championship team. They're not 40-50 points better than us, we know that,'' Memphis forward Zach Randolph said.
All three of the Warriors' opponents in four games - they faced the Pelicans twice already - have been teams Golden State eliminated in last season's playoffs en route to an NBA championship. The Warriors beat the Grizzlies in six games in the Western Conference semifinals.
''There's a little bit of an intimidation factor when we start making shots http://www.shopjaguarsnfljersey.com/Allen-Robinson-Jerseyand we start locking up on defense,'' interim coach Luke Walton said. ''It can cause some teams to fold. Memphis I do not think is one of those teams. I just think they had a poor shooting night.''
Curry made a steal and a driving hook shot with 6:28 left in the third to put Golden State ahead 75-40. He knocked down a 3-pointer a minute later and another about 30 seconds after that.
The Grizzlies kicked off a season-long five-game, nine-day road trip in forgettable fashion, going 3 for 23 from 3-point range.
''I don't think anyone is intimidated by us, nor do we expect it,'' Golden State's Draymond Green said. ''We've just raised our level of play.''
