Stephen Curry needs to take better care of the basketball, according to Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson.

Curry, the Warriors' star point guard, enters Monday's contest against the 76ers averaging a whopping 6.3 turnovers per game -- the highest mark in the NBA.

Although he has emerged as Golden State's best player and one of the top young guards in the NBA, Curry has been committing turnovers at an "unacceptable" level, according to Jackson.

"He understands that he has to be better," Jackson said, according to "He understands that if we are going to achieve our vision, he's got to take care of the basketball."

Curry, 25, is averaging 23.3 points and 9.0 assists -- both team highs -- through the Warriors' first three games this season.

But two days after committing a career-high 11 turnovers in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Curry turned the ball over seven times in Saturday's win over the Sacramento Kings.
