The Warriors improved to 1-8 away from Chase Center with a 127-120 win in Houston on Sunday, showing that they are carrying things one step at a time as they try to climb out of this early-season hole.


The 1989–90 club lost its first nine games away from home and had a worse record (0–8) than the 0–8 road start to the current season.


Klay Thompson, whose difficulties in starting the season have been well documented, was in fine form, making ten 3-pointers en route to 41 points. With seven 3-pointers, Stephen Curry contributed 33 points. If you do the math, the Splash Brothers scored 74 points with 17 3-pointers.


According to source, Thompson, Curry, and Wiggins combined for 23 3-pointers, which is the most by any trio in NBA history. Add in Andrew Wiggins’ 22 points on 6-of-11 shooting from beyond the arc.


According to Warriors PR, this is the sixth time Thompson has made a minimum of 10 3-pointers in a single game. Curry holds the NBA record with 22, and Thompson started the game off hot with 20 points in the opening nine minutes.


In his postgame interview, Thompson said, “It feels wonderful. I’m harsh on myself, so I’ve been craving one. And to get one and sort of open the floodgates, it’s only up from here. I assure you.” “I don’t care if it’s a middle November game; it felt wonderful,” said the player. “I feel like myself. My legs feel awesome. I’m cutting to the rim, shooting tremendous shots, and eager for what’s to come.”


The Warriors were on fire from beyond the arc as they struck at a team-high 51 percent clip. They accumulated 38 assists. Curry has fifteen on his own. Everyone was hunting for Thompson after he started to get hot. The Warriors are challenging to defend against when they move the ball with that much speed. The good news is that.


The bad news is that the Rockets, who are matched with the Pistons for the league’s fewest victories (3), had to be narrowly defeated to avoid a real record 3-point shooting outburst. Golden State’s defense has been a doormat throughout the entire season, and Houston’s 120 points made it pretty simple for them to find decent shots.


The game moved quickly, and Golden State realized that winning would require outscoring opponents in its current configuration. However, this can’t be a daily routine. The old Warriors, who had already won five of their previous seven games, were fantastic for one night, dumping triples all over the court.
