Warriors Embarrass The Lakers To Cement Best Start In NBA History

Stephen Curry made everyone look silly. Kobe Bryant looked old.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 111-77 Tuesday night, as they set an NBA record of 16 consecutive wins for best season start.

Golden State surpassed the '93-'94 Houston Rockets and the '48-'49 Washington Capitols, who both went 15-0 to start the season before each lost their first game.

If there was any hope that the Lakers were going to end the Warriors' win streak, Golden State made sure to crush that hope from the beginning, as they jumped out to a 30-11 lead by the end of the first quarter.

Even before that, Stephen Curry did this to Jordan Clarkson.

And then this to Lou Williams. 

 And then this to Kobe.

 

 Later, he did this to D'Angelo Russell.

To put it simply, the Warriors dominated the rest of the game, as Curry finished with 24 points and Draymond Green ended with 18.

The Warriors built a game-high 41-point lead in the fourth quarter.

While Golden State set a new record, the Lakers' Kobe Bryant made history of his own -- the bad kind.

The 37-year-old shot 1-14 -- a shooting percentage of 7 percent -- for the game. That shooting percentage matches a career low for Bryant, according to ESPN. He scored just four points and had two more turnovers than he did baskets. 

And then there were the airballs. 

Golden State's next game will be at Phoenix on Friday night with the chance to go 17-0.
