The Golden State Warriors played their first game for 287 days on Saturday and Steph Curry marked the occasion in trademark fashion.

A shot from the Oracle Arena tunnel was a famed part of Curry's pre-game routine during the Warriors' time at their former Oakland home.

Injury forced Curry to miss most of last season, their first at the Chase Center in San Francisco, with Golden State enduring a prolonged absence from the court as they missed out on playing in the NBA bubble in Orlando.

But the man most consider the greatest shooter in NBA history showed off his ridiculous range as the Warriors ended their long wait for a game in a preseason encounter with the Denver Nuggets.

Curry demonstrated pinpoint accuracy in hitting on a pre-game shot from the Chase Center stands, and it proved a good omen for the Warriors as they prevailed 107-105 despite the absence of Draymond Green and rookie second overall pick James Wiseman.

The Warriors have two further preseason games with the Sacramento Kings before Curry faces his former teammate Kevin Durant in a season-opening clash with the Brooklyn Nets.
