|TORONTO， Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Reigning MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors scored a game-high 35 points in his team's 127-121 victory over the Toronto Raptors to extend its winning streak to five games on Wednesday evening.
Teammate Kevin Durant also chipped in with 30 points， nine rebounds and six assists as Golden State improves to 9-2 on the season and 5-1 on the road.
Since starting the season 4-2， the Warriors have found their groove， beating teams by an average of 14.8 points during the five-game winning streak that began on Nov. 7 against New Orleans.
Despite the winning streak， Curry says he is more focused on improving as a unit rather than winning as many games possible. Last season， the team won an NBA record 73 wins but fell short in the Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
"We've all been in situations knowing what it takes in April， May and June. You can't fall in love with regular season success and understand the little things that change a series and change a championship run，" said Curry following the game. "It's a long season. We all are smart enough to know where we are and assess if we are championship calibre or not， on both ends of the floor."
Wednesday's game started with Toronto running away with 38 points in the first quarter on 14-for-24 (58.3 percent) shooting from the field. Toronto led 38-34 at the end of the quarter.
In the second quarter， Warriors' defence stepped up and held Toronto to 15 points on 5-for-24 (20.8 percent) shooting. Curry and Durant each had 10 points and helped Golden State end the quarter on a 21-4 run to take a lead that they would never give up.
"The second quarter was great， one of the best quarters we've played，" Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told the media following the victory. "Defence was good， we didn't foul， we rebounded， that was obviously the key to the game， that whole stretch."
Entering his third season as head coach of Golden State， Kerr hopes that his team can continue to develop on both ends of the floor during the regular season to ultimately capture their second championship in three seasons.
LUSAKA http://www.cheapnfljerseysbroncos.com/Carlos-Henderson/ , Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- A candidate for the governing party in Zambia on Tuesday expressed confidence that he will emerge as the winner of a presidential election necessitated by the death of President Michael Sata.
While acknowledging that the election was tight, Edgar Lungu, the candidate of the governing Patriotic Front (PF) told reporters after casting his vote at a polling center in his Chawama constituency in Lusaka http://www.cheapnfljerseysbroncos.com/Demarcus-Walker/ , the country's capital that he will eventually emerge victorious when results are announced because of the message he sent out during campaigns.
Lungu, who is also justice and defense minister, was accompanied to the polling center by his wife and a heavy security personnel from the party http://www.cheapnfljerseysbroncos.com/Garett-Bolles/ , is considered as a front-runner in the election called to succeed Sata but he faces stiff challenge from Hakainde Hichilema, leader of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND).
Lungu further said he will initiate discussions with the mining firms on a new tax regime for the sector which has caused anxiety among the mining companies in order to find a win-win situation.
The governing party candidate, who held his last rally in the Zambian capital on Monday http://www.cheapnfljerseysbroncos.com/Matt-Paradis/ , has mainly campaigned on the basis of continuing with the legacy of his predecessor.
Zambian voters braved the rains and turned up in various poling centers across the country's 10 provinces to choose the country's sixth president since gaining independence from Britain in 1964.
Eleven candidates are contesting in the presidential election and whoever wins will only serve out the remaining 18 months of Sata's term.
Sata won the 2011 general elections and the southern African nation will hold a general election in 2016.
According to the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ), there are 5.1 million registered voters in Zambia but the turnout has so far been not impressive from many parts of the country due to the rains. Voting has been hampered by late arrival of materials in some districts due to bad roads following the rains the country has experienced.

It also said "customers will be contacted directly... and offered alternative flights or full refunds."
