If you needed any proof that the Golden State Warriors are going to be scary this season, just take a look at the statistics for the third quarter of their win against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Stephen Curry had been having a quiet night, only managing five points during the first half at the Moda Center. The Warriors were already up by six as the third quarter began, but then it became the Steph show.
The point guard reminded everybody what he is about by outscoring Portland on his own. That's right, his five three-pointers contributed to 23 points in the quarter as he caught fire with a barrage of range shooting that left the Blazers stunned.
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE HIGHLIGHTS
Golden State would go on to outscore Portland 41-20 in the third and put the game completely out of reach of the home team.
It was easily the most impressive performance of the season for the Warriors and showed exactly what they are capable of when one of their volume scorers is able to get into a rhythm.
Their huge lead heading into the fourth quarter was reminiscent of what we saw last season and head coach Steve Kerr will be delighted to see his charges perform in such a manner.
Kevin Durant and Curry have been consistently scoring over 20 points a game since the campaign began, it's Klay Thompson whose scoring has taken a knock.
If the shooting guard can find his stroke then it won't be long before we see the Warriors posting NBA 2k17-like scores.
