Result: Red-hot Curry inspires Golden State to victory

The star Warriors guard scored 11 three-pointers.

Stephen Curry racked up 51 points, including 11 three-pointers, as the Golden State Warriors were 144-122 victors over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

It was the sixth time in Curry's career that he had passed the 50-point mark, and the 10th time he had scored 10 or more three-pointers, with Kevin Durant adding 30 points.

The win took the Warriors' early-season record to 4-1.

LeBron James tasted victory for the first time as a Los Angeles Lakers player as they overcame the Phoenix Suns 131-113 in Arizona.

James managed 19 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds before sitting out the final quarter.

The Toronto Raptors' flying start to the season continued as they went 5-0 by beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-105.

Kawhi Leonard led all scorers for the Raptors with 35 points but also shone defensively, regaining possession with a 'no-look' interception to stop a pass from Gorgui Dieng reaching Jimmy Butler.

The Milwaukee Bucks have four wins from four as they beat the Philadelphia 76ers 123-108.

Giannis Antetokounmpo equalled a record set by Wilt Chamberlain from 1965-66 by scoring 25 or more points and claiming 15 or more rebounds in each of the first four games of the season.
