The Golden State Warriors Are The First Team Since 1985 To Start A Season Like This

Fastbreak on FanNation reporter Ben Stinar sat down with publisher Tom Brew to talk about Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors in Episode 10 of our daily video on hot topics around the league.

The Golden State Warriors are off to a great start on the new season. 

They have beaten the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Sacramento Kings and Oklahoma City Thunder to garner a perfect 4-0 record. 

After making the NBA Finals five-seasons in a row, they missed the postseason in each of the last two seasons, but now they look like they're a team who's one of the NBA's best once again. 

According to ESPN Stats & Info (tweet above), they are the first team since 1985-86 to trail at halftime in all four of the first games but also win all four of those games. 

In fact, outside of the Los Angeles Clippers who did that, no one else in NBA history has done such a thing. 

The other key factor has also been the play of Steph Curry, who at 33-years-old, appears as if he could be on the verge of coming for his third MVP trophy this season.

Many people thought he should have won the award last season when he led the NBA in points per game (32.0 PPG).

However, the Warriors were not a good team last season and missed the playoffs. 

This season it appears as if that will not be the case. 

In addition, they have won these four games without five-time All-Star Klay Thompson who has missed each of the last two seasons. 

If they can get Thompson back into the fold sooner rather than later and he plays like his usual self; this team could easily be in the running for winning an NBA title.
