Warriors-Kings Preview

Stephen Curry continues to amaze the NBA with his hot start for the unbeaten Golden State Warriors.

A flurry by another Curry may just have added some spice to the Warriors' trip north to face the Sacramento Kings.

Stephen Curry could get a chance to face brother Seth Curry for the first time Saturday night when the Warriors look to hand a Kings team playing without star big man DeMarcus Cousins a fifth straight loss.

Golden State (6-0) is off its best start since moving to the Bay Area and three wins shy of matching the Philadelphia Warriors' 9-0 start as the franchise's best.

Stephen Curry continues to lead the league with 35.5 points per game while shooting 56.9 percent overall and 51.4 percent on 3-pointers after he scored 34 with a season-high 10 assists in Friday's 119-104 victory over Denver. Curry scored 20 by halftime as the Warriors led by 30 at the break.

The reigning league MVP has hit a 3-pointer in 79 straight games to tie Michael Adams for the third-longest streak in league history.

''I'm more experienced, I think I'm a better player than I was last year,'' Curry said. ''That's the mission, but a long way to go.''

Sacramento (1-5) has dropped all three games without Cousins, who averages 22.0 points and 11.0 rebounds and will miss his fourth straight with a strained right Achilles.

The Warriors have won eight straight in this series, with four victories last season with Cousins in Sacramento's lineup by an average of 22.0 points.

Stephen Curry is 27 and Seth Curry is 25, with the younger brother's experience consisting of eight games over the last three seasons.

Seth Curry's minutes have mostly come with the game already decided. His first three appearances this season came in fourth quarters in which the margins were 21 points, 20 and 18.

That changed in Friday's 116-110 home loss to Houston in which Curry entered in the third with the Kings down by 16. He failed to score in that period before he scored Sacramento's first eight points of the fourth in a span of 1:12 as the Kings pulled within one point.

That comeback was short-lived as Sacramento conceded the next nine points and never seriously threatened again. Still, Seth Curry's personal-best eight points came in a career-high 15 minutes.

His effort was part of 70 bench points - the third-highest total in the NBA this season. Reserves Omri Casspi and Darren Collison each scored 22.

"I know he can play this game, we all know he can play, you know what I mean?" Collison said of the younger Curry. "He just needs the opportunity."

This should be an entertaining affair since these teams play at the fastest tempos in the West, as Sacramento averages 104.92 possessions per 48 minutes and Golden State 104.90. The Warriors are more lethal with a league-best 117.8 points per game while the Kings are fourth at 106.8.

Golden State averages a league-high 30.2 assists, with its 40 against Denver its most since it had 45 on April 1, 1994.

Kings rookie Willie Cauley-Stein went to the bench with just over 2 minutes remaining Friday with an apparent ankle injury.
