About the only newsworthy element concerning the Golden State Warriors on what seems an inevitable path to a consecutive NBA Championship is the statistical records the team is amassing at the season winds down to the last dozen regular games prior to the playoffs.
Golden State, in beating the hapless New York Knicks 121-85, won their 50th straight home game. They have won 32 home games this season and finished the last with 18 consecutive.
Stephen Curry scored 34 points on 8 for 13 three-point attempts and 12 for 20 from the floor before taking a holiday for the final 25 percent of the game, watching the fourth quarter from the bench.
His ridiculous 60 percent average from three-point range will likely spur the same killjoys who wanted to raise the rim to counteract Abdul Kareem Jabbar’s dominance in the 70s and 80s to demand the three-point line be moved further from the rim.
The three-point line could be moved from Sacramento to Sydney and Curry would still bury over half his shots.
Andrew Bogut continued his solid play, scoring 10 points, seven rebounds and four assists. He has been a steady contributor averaging 20 minutes per game this season and maintaining a .698 field goal percentage for the season.
