The team is off to a 20-4 start and Curry is playing at an MVP level.
The veteran guard is leading the way with 27.7 points per game and the Warriors are dominating even without Klay Thompson.
They may be unstoppable once he returns.
But that is still a few weeks away from happening and the focus Wednesday night is all on Curry.
That is because he is chasing history with his three-point shooting.
Stephen Curry returns to action tonight, 15 threes away from matching Ray Allen's record.

He needs 15 three-pointers to match Ray Allen for the NBA record.
Allen has been atop the NBA with 2,973 since his retirement.
But Curry is going to overtake him soon and doing so Wednesday night would involve even more history that involves a teammate.
Seeking History At Home
Curry and the Warriors are home Wednesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Getting to 15 made three-pointers on the night would not only tie Allen, but would break Thompson’s single-game record of 14.
He set that back in 2018.

Curry has reached 13 made threes in a game, but never 14.
So expecting 15 may be out of the question.
However, Curry knows he is on the brink of history and may just shoot as much as possible and hope for the best.
Following the game against Portland, Golden State heads out on a five-game road trip.
So if Curry wants to break history in front of his home fans, he needs to shoot the lights out Wednesday night.
Otherwise, he will likely set the all-time record Saturday in Philadelphia or next Monday in Indiana.
The craziest thing about Curry setting this record is that he is only 33 years old.
He may be on the pursuit for 4,000 before his career ultimately comes to an end.
