Stephen to start?


Mired in a preseason-long shooting slump, Curry broke out a little with his jumper and a lot with everything else in the Warriors’ 126-92 win over New Orleans at Oracle Arena. He had 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting, 10 assists, six rebounds and six steals.

“I thought the difference in the game was Curry,” coach Don Nelson said. “When we inserted him into the game, we immediately started moving the ball better, pushing the ball better and doing all of the things I’ve been wanting us to do.

“The little guy is good, and it’s going to be hard to keep him out of the lineup.”

The fifth starter has been a question throughout the preseason, but Nelson said “as far as I’m concerned, he won the job tonight.”
