Curry hails Warriors 'amazing' record-equalling run


Stephen Curry lauded the Golden State Warriors' "amazing accomplishment" after they secured a 44th successive regular-season home victory by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 121-106 on Thursday.

The Warriors equalled the NBA record set by the Chicago Bulls between 1995 and 1996, with Curry scoring 33 points on his return from an ankle injury to help them on their way to victory at Oracle Arena.

The reigning NBA MVP was proud after seeing the defending champions match the milestone and he hopes the run continues.

"It's an amazing accomplishment. Compliments to the team, coaches and our fans that bring that atmosphere every night, they give us the ultimate home-court advantage," said Curry.

"That's a high level of consistency to come out every single night and take advantage of the opportunities you have in front of your home crowd.

"We want to keep that going. If we don't lose another game at home this year then good things are going to happen.

"They are one of the top teams in the league and every night you need to be on your game. They bring [out] the best of us and I'm sure that competition is what we all live for. It's always fun."

Head coach Steven Kerr echoed the point guard's sentiments, suggesting the team have more self-belief than when they won the championship last year.

"It's crazy. You can't even dream this stuff up. It's been that kind of season for us. We've been pretty healthy most of the way," he said.

"The biggest thing is the continuity from a year ago. I think any time there is new coaching staff, the second year is going to be more comfortable and the guys will be more confident.

"You combine that with winning a championship. I think our team's confidence level is deeper than it was a year ago."
