Golden State Warriors have just earned the spot in NBA history as they are the first team to establish a 16-0 unblemished record at the onset of the season. Is it their year of fortune once again? Apparently, luck isn’t much a factor in their momentum. Statistical figures show otherwise how deadly their team have become in this season as they created more damages versus their opponents compared to how they fared last year.
According to ESPN, one of the significant departments wherein they are impressively great is the field goal percentage across the different area on the court. Points on the paint, mid-range, and beyond the rainbow arch are all adding up to their score. They are currently the top performing team when it comes to banking from the 3-pt area.
So far, this is the average of their distance and shooting percentage: 25-29 ft/3pt-area (43.9%), 20-24 ft (40. 2%), 15-19 ft (43.4%), 10-14 ft (47.9%), 5-9 ft (37.5%), and 5 ft below (62.4%).
Another key factor is Stephen Curry, surely he lives up to his recognition being the reigning MVP of the league. He doesn’t simply help the team in winning through his offensive onslaught but his current statistics speaks highly of his great performance making him the leader in these figures as of the moment. For the average points made per game, he is getting 32.1. Meanwhile for the total 3-pointers successfully made, he scored 78, and for the total field goals created, he has 173.
In a report from NBA.com, their 16th win via a lopsided victory against the Lakers proved their composure throughout the entire game. Even if the opponent had an opportunity to lessen the score margin, the Warriors remained focused and even launched a 15-0 run in the first quarter and 11-0 run in the third quarter.
Golden State Warriors is set to face the Phoenix Suns in their next game. Can they continue the momentum?
