Stephen Curry Key as Warriors beat Brooklyn Nets

Stephen Curry scored 37 points, including nine three-pointers, to help the Golden State Warriors beat the Brooklyn Nets 117-99.

Curry’s tally meant he became the second player to pass 2,900 regular-season three-pointers after Ray Allen, who tops the list with 2,973.
The Warriors lead the Western Conference with 12 wins and two losses.

“We’re a good team and we’re off to a great start. We’re building our identity and chemistry,” said Curry.

“It’s a great defensive team that can also put the ball in the basket obviously.”

Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Clippers beat the San Antonio Spurs 106-92, while the Utah Jazz earned a dominant 120-85 victory against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Paul George scored 34 points for the Clippers, with team-mate Reggie Jackson adding 21.

The Sixers again had to do without Joel Embiid, who missed five games in a row due to Covid-19 protocols.
Utah benefited from Bojan Bogdanovic with 27 points and Rudy Gobert with his 11th double-double.
