Stephen Curry Says Warriors Will Lose Before Panthers … But It Won’t Be Tonight
On a night they honored his father in Charlotte, Stephen Curry scored 40 points -- with 28 in the third quarter on 11-of-12 shooting -- as the Warriors went to 20-0 with a 116-99 victory over the Hornets.
Curry and the rest of the NBA are clearly now residing on different planets.
When asked earlier today who will lose first, the Carolina Panthers or the Warriors, Curry said:
"My answer to that is us, but not until February, hopefully. Then the Panthers will get their Super Bowl win and we'll have the record for consecutive wins."
The Warriors extended their record for consecutive wins to begin a season, and made it 26 straight wins overall dating to last season. The record is 33, by the '71-72 Lakers (the Miami Heat won 27 straight).
It was Dell Curry Night in Charlotte, as the Hornets honored their all-time-leading scorer who played for them from 1988-98. Stephen Curry attended high school in Charlotte, played collegiality at Davidson and says that the Panthers are his favorite NFL team.

Should we be honoring win streaks that occur over parts of two different seasons? I say no -- its silly. Different circumstances, different personnel, etc. But it's not hurting anyone I guess, so what the hell? Knock yourselves out, people who care about that stuff.
The Warriors are 2-0 on their seven-game road trip, and have to make it out of Toronto and Brooklyn before it's over. As for Curry's prediction, February is a LONG way away. Oh, and if they happen to make it to February without a loss, Golden State plays Oklahoma City in Oakland on the night before the Super Bowl.
