Steph Curry put on a dominant performance on Thursday evening in the Golden State Warriors home-opener against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The three-time NBA Champion scored 25 points in the first quarter on 100% shooting, and finished the game with 45 points and ten rebounds.
Not to mention the Warriors are also now 2-0 after beating the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday evening at Staples Center.
After the game, the two-time MVP spoke to the NBA on TNT crew, and some of what he said can be seen in video that is in a tweet that is embedded below.
"MVP type caliber expectation," Curry said post-game on TNT. "I always have that."
Last season, Curry averaged 32.0 points per game (which led the entire NBA), but did not win the MVP and the Warriors did not make the playoffs.
After making the NBA Finals for five straight seasons, they have missed the postseason in each of the last two years, but are off to an incredible start on the new year.
