Streaking Warriors won't let up: Bogut

  • Streaking Warriors won't let up: Bogut

Australian centre Andrew Bogut says it is going to take something very special to snap Golden State's record-breaking start to the NBA season.

The Warriors have made a remarkable beginning to their title defence and will take a 23-0 record into Friday night's (Saturday AEDT) clash against the Boston Celtics.

"We're definitely rolling right now and playing some good ball," Bogut told SEN radio.

"In the midst of this streak a lot of people are asking `how are we doing it?'

"We said `let's not lose to anybody'.

"If they beat us they are going to have to shoot 70 per cent from the three (point line), have someone go for a big night and beat us fair and square."

Actually beating the Warriors is one of those things that is easily said but not done.

Led by League MVP Stephen Curry the Warriors have been killing the opposition this season, averaging a league-best 115.8 points per game (Oklahoma City are next with 108.5), while Curry is leading individual scoring with 32.2 points per game.

Bogut is finding form himself, scoring a season-high 14 points and pulling down 10 rebounds last time out, when the Warriors defeated the Indiana Pacers 131-123.

Golden State have 27 wins on the trot, - including the last four of their victorious 2013-14 campaign, just six behind the alltime record of 33 set by the LA Lakers in 1971-72.

Bogut says there isn't necessarily a secret to the Warriors' success but does believe team unity and stability has played a part.

"We've been together for a number of years now," he said.

"Professional sports in general, especially the NBA, teams and owners get impatient after a year or two (and think) `let's trade for a superstar, let's blow it up, let's fire our GM, let's fire our coach'.

"We have only really had a coaching change and kept the same core group together and that's very underrated.

"We're getting everyone's best crack and in the long run that will make us stronger and tougher and hopefully will carry us to a championship again."
