The reigning NBA title holders Golden State Warriors defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 100-84 Wednesday night to remain undefeated on the season.

The Warriors are just the second team since the Bulls to go 9-0 when Michael Jordan and company accomplished the feat in the 1996-97 season. The Bulls would finish 69-13 that year.

Through the first few weeks of the league schedule, the Dubs are dominating teams with superior offense and defense. GSW ranks first in the NBA in points per game (114.9) and assists (29.6), while crashing the boards at an elite level (48.5 rpg).

Stephen Curry, the reigning MVP, is playing lights out in the early goings. He’s averaging a league high 34.6 points per contest and is probably the hottest shooter in the game right now.
