The Golden State Warriors won tonight's game by a score of 112 to 109 after yet another stiff challenge from the Toronto Raptors.
With the win, the Warriors are now 21-0 and off to the best start in U.S. professional sports history. Mind you, they did that with starters Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut both out nursing injuries. But once again, Stephen Curry was just spectacular enough to pull off the win.

Curry led the way for the Warriors with a game-high 44 points, while shooting a whopping 9-for-15 from the 3-point line and scoring 15 points in the final seven minutes. While that might not seem to be that big a deal in the context of this season, consider that the fact that he has made hitting nine threes in a game routine is historic in and of itself: he's on track to have the most games with nine threes in NBA history.
Per @bball_ref, Steph Curry has tied NBA records for games with 8+ 3s (6) and 9+ 3s (2) in a season. It's December 5.— Kevin Pelton (@kpelton) December 6, 2015
As you can probably guess, you can almost tell the story of this game by looking at the output of the two teams' top stars: while Toronto's Kyle Lowry wasn't far behind with a team-high 41 points.
We'll have plenty more on this game coming up soon...in the meantime, what was the most spectacular part of that game to you?
