Warriors run NBA-record start to 18-0

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry scored 19 points in Golden State's NBA-record 18th straight win at the start of a season, but what he didn't do against the Sacramento Kings was just as important to the defending champion Warriors.

Curry, the league's reigning Most Valuable Player and its leading scorer this season with an average of 32.6 points, played less than 30 minutes in the 120-101 victory Saturday night and took only seven shots - all but one in the first quarter.

"I'm sure Steph doesn't like it," Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said. "But the coaching staff and the training staff, we're thrilled to get him that rest."
