Stephen Curry vs. Kemba Walker: Former Davidson star Curry is playing even better than he did as the NBA’s Most Valuable Player last season.
▪ The Warriors are on an NBA-record 19-game season-opening winning streak. It also is the third-longest overall winning streak in league history. They lead the NBA in points per game, field-goal percentage, 3-point percentage and assists per game.
▪ Cody Zeller will start at center for the Hornets in place of injured Al Jefferson. The Hornets need to find alternative ways to create post offense with Jefferson out two-three weeks with a calf strain. Zeller and wing players Nic Batum and Jeremy Lamb are possibilities.
▪ The Hornets will honor Dell Curry at halftime on the one night this season son Stephen will play in Charlotte. Dell is the Hornets’ career scoring leader with 9,839 points.
▪ Warriors forward and former North Carolina star Harrison Barnes has been out with a sprained left ankle. … Hornets guard Jeremy Lin is listed as questionable with a sprained right ankle.
