Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors came up with a big win over the Chicago Bulls to get their first W of the season.

Steph is being a great veteran. Helping the younger guys build on their confidence is imperative to the success of this team.

Guards like Lee will be required to step up now considering the lack of Klay Thompson. Hopefully, this is a good start for the Warriors who finally have a W on the season.

While Lee hit the game-winner tonight, we can’t underestimate Steph when it comes to making these big shots. He has one of the most famous regular-season game-winners in the history of the sport.

The Warriors had the worst record in the league last season, but that was with Steph injured as well. Now that he is here with the number one overall pick and a solid (expensive) roster around him, it is time for him to lead from the front.
