This is beautiful basketball.

Late in the third quarter against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, the Golden State Warriors put on a marvelous display of passing and teamwork.

It started with an outlet pass to Stephen Curry from Draymond Green. The league’s reigning MVP then whipped the rock behind his back to Andre Iguodala, who lobbed a pass to Leandro Barbosa for an easy deuce.

So perfect.

Golden State won, 123-110, moving to an NBA-best 47-4 on the year. Thanks to the victory, the Warriors set the league record for the best 51-game start to a season.
