The Golden State Warriors opened their preseason Monday night, and it looks like they haven’t skipped a beat since their championship.
Not only did they come up with a 95-87 victory over the Raptors, they looked good doing it.
Despite several months off, the Warriors’ brand of flashy, pass-happy, net-splashing offense seems to have picked up right where they left off.
At the end of the second quarter, Stephen Curry brought the ball up court, and made a fancy behind-the-back pass to an open Klay Thompson for three. However, Thompson spotted Draymond Green down low, and whipped a pass for what should have been a layup. Instead, Green saw Curry dashing to the corner and hit him for an even more open three-pointer, which for Curry, is the equivalent of a layup.
To top it off, as Curry let it go, he turned to teammate Andre Iguodala on the sidelines, and high-fived him before it even went in.
Here’s a little video breakdown of the play:

A fan at the game also caught a great video of the play as it happened:
Curry has done this before. Before he was MVP, he knew when his shots were going down:

The Warriors basically kept their whole roster together, and it looks like that continuity is already helping them. The rest of the Western Conference is going to have to play catch-up.
