In the last three games Stephen Curry has been on absolute fire from 3-point range. Including tonight's 7-of-13, he is shooting 23/38 (61%). Tonight he scored 33 points with 7 assists and 5 rebounds. He scored 15 in the third quarter alone to help open up a 24-point lead over the Denver Nuggets (3-5) going into the final period. 

With the win the Warriors (7-2) tied the John Stockton/ Karl Malone-era Utah Jazz for 95 straight games without losing back-to-back games. 

Fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson seems to be out of his three-point shooting slump. He hit 3/4 from deep and had 19 points for the game. 

Draymond Green had 13 points with 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. Kevin Durant had 18 points and snapped his consecutive 20 points or more scoring streak, tying Michael Jordan for 4th place on the all-time list. 

Off the bench JaVale McGee had 10 points and 2 blocks in 11 minutes of play against his former team. David West and Shaun Livingston combined for 11 points. Every player who entered the game scored for the Warriors. 

The Warriors will take on the Suns this Sunday, 5 p.m. at Oracle.
