Warriors’ Stephen Curry (30) passes the ball during an NBA victory over the Nets at Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY, US, on November 16, 2021.

Stephen Curry scored 37 points, including nine three-pointers, to help the Golden State Warriors beat the Brooklyn Nets 117-99.

Curry's tally meant he became the second player to pass 2,900 regular season three-pointers after Ray Allen, who tops the list with 2,973, BBC Sport reported.

The Warriors top the Western Conference with 12 wins and two defeats.

"We're a good team and we're off to a great start. We're building our identity and chemistry," said Curry.

"It's a great defensive team that can also put the ball in the basket obviously."

Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Clippers beat the San Antonio Spurs 106-92, while the Utah Jazz earned a dominant 120-85 victory against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Paul George scored 34 points for the Clippers, with team-mate Reggie Jackson adding 21.

The Sixers were again without Joel Embiid, who has missed five consecutive games because of Covid-19 protocols.

Utah capitalised with Bojan Bogdanovic scoring 27 points and Rudy Gobert registering his 11th double-double.
