Warriors at Raptors gamethread: Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes out for Golden State

New, comments

With a short-handed win tonight in Toronto, the Warriors would be off to the greatest start in U.S. professional sports history.

Well, I'm not even sure what to say about this Golden State Warriors team anymore — they're amazing.

So let's just bask in the numbers. And more numbers:

So what's at stake when the play the Toronto Raptors today? How about 21-0, indisputably the best start to a season in U.S. pro sports history? Not bad.

The challenge? The Warriors will be without both Harrison Barnes (ankle) and Andrew Bogut (strained back), which will make this a tough road game against a team that already posed a pretty strong challenge to the streak at Oracle Arena. If the Warriors can get through this weekend unscathed - tomorrow, they play the Brooklyn Nets, who took them to overine at Oracle - it could arguably be the most impressive (team) feat of the streak thus far.
