Wow, it is good to have Stephen Curry healthy again! The hand no longer seems to be an issue as the Splash Brother put on a clinic against the Sacramento Kings, leading his Golden State Warriors to a 113-109 win.

Curry ended with 29 points, knocking down six three-pointers in the process. The two-time MVP got an additional 22-points from his newest teammate Kelly Oubre Jr. and 19 from Andrew Wiggins. Steve Kerr and his team seem to have strong chemistry heading into the start of the 2020-21 NBA season.

Andrew Wiggins was unconscious to start the game. He had nine points in the first four minutes of the game and ended up with 11 points on perfect shooting in the first quarter.

Despite Andrew Wiggins's talents, he has a reputation for not giving full effort and taking games off. The Golden State Warriors will look to get the best out of the 2014 No. 1 overall draft pick and look for him to play a big role with Klay Thompson being out another season.

Stephen Curry seems to already be in mid-season form and the Warriors are hoping to bounce back into championship contention this year. They have already taken a tough blow losing Klay Thompson, but with Curry already playing the way he is, Golden State may be able to make a run for a top seed in the west.
