Warriors reach insane feat no other NBA team has this season
The Golden State Warriors are off to an NBA-best 14-2 start after beating the Detroit Pistons on Friday night without Stephen Curry, Otto Porter Jr, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala. It’s pretty clear that Steve Kerr’s squad is the real deal, showing tremendous depth past Steph.
In fact, the Warriors have already reached a feat no other team in the Association has. Via Bleacher Report:

Wow, impressive. In a nutshell, their offense has brought it every single night. Even without Curry against Detroit, backcourt partner Jordan Poole stepped up heavily, erupting for a season-high 32. He’s been one of the biggest surprises for the Warriors so far, giving Kerr another legitimate scoring threat and taking some of the load off Steph.
The scariest part? Golden State is literally missing two of their starters in James Wiseman and Klay Thompson. The second-year big man is expected to be back soon, while Thompson should make his long-awaited return in either December or January after over two years removed from his last NBA appearance.
In 2020/21, Steph was honestly relied on far too much to pick up the slack offensively for the Warriors. That’s why they were a fringe playoff team. While he’s still averaging 29.5 points per night, the 33-year-old has pieces around him once again just like the dynasty days.
Once the Dubs are at full strength, it’s going to be frightening. The sky is truly the limit for this squad as they look to make a run at an NBA title.
