Wolves have any chance against Steph Curry and the perfect Warriors?

There's no question the Timberwolves are a much better team now than they were a year ago, but Thursday night will likely give the NBA a taste of just how big the gap is between Minnesota and the reigning NBA champs.

Steph Curry, the reigning league MVP, has led the Golden State Warriors to nine straight wins to start the season, and they're blowing teams away in dominating fashion.

The Star Tribune notes that Golden State is beating its opponents by an average of 18 points per game.

Their victims thus far:

  1. New Orleans: 111-95
  2. Houston: 112-92
  3. New Orleans: 134-120
  4. Memphis: 119-69
  5. L.A. Clippers: 112-108
  6. Denver: 119-104
  7. Sacramento: 103-94
  8. Detroit: 109-95
  9. Memphis: 100-84

The 50-point win over Memphis is not a typo. The Warriors are that good.

Curry leads the league in scoring at 31.9 points per game. He's doing so hitting shots while falling down – like he did Wednesday night against Memphis.

And then Curry hit a shot from even deeper to end the third quarter.

Curry is a monster and the Warriors are the champs and the Wolves are still the Wolves, but maybe on the second night of a back-to-back Minnesota can catch the Warriors for their first loss of the season?

"You lose one game, and you're like, 'Oh we're going to lose nine more and try to get to 72,'" Curry told Inside Bay Area when talking about the potential of equaling the 1995-96 Bulls' 72-win regular season. "That's not a good way to think. We can obviously talk about it and stuff, but talk about how hard of a task that is and how great that Bulls team was."

A win over the Warriors would give the Wolves five on the season. They didn't win their fifth game until Dec. 10 last season and they didn't reach nine wins until Feb. 4.
