The Warriors delivered one of those rare NBA victories achieved in the first two minutes of the game rather than the last two on Tuesday night.

Seriously, the Warriors bolted out to a 9-2 lead after the first 2:10 and it only got worse from there for the Detroit Pistons in a 113-95 hammering at Oracle Arena.

Golden State won its third straight home game without a loss, and they've all been early knockouts. The Warriors have led by as much as 27 in all three, and they've trailed at Oracle for a total of only 23 seconds.

Of course, it's been against less than formidable competition -- the Kobe-less Lakers, the Sacramento Kings and now an undermanned Pistons team on the second night of a back-to-back. Those three clubs are a combined 1-8 on the road. Oklahoma City comes to town Thursday, and that will be a stronger test.

But to simply knock the opposition would be selling the Warriors' starting five short on this night, as the cast of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut, David Lee and newcomer Andre Iguodala were positively exquisite in delivering the quick KO.

The Warriors scored 35 first-quarter points without any starter posting double figures. That's how well they shared the basketball. They shot 60.6 percent. They logged 13 assists on 14 made baskets, two off the club record for a quarter. Defensively, they limited to Detroit to 33.3 percent shooting and outrebounded them 15-5.

For good measure, Golden State committed just one turnover in jumping out to a 35-16 advantage after the first 12 minutes.

"That first quarter -- 13 assists -- we just made plays," said Warriors coach Mark Jackson. "The great thing about it is that you can be unselfish not just offensively, but defensively as well. Our starters really set the tone."

Indeed, the starters look like they'd been playing together for eight years as opposed to eight games. Iguodala, the newcomer, looked the most comfortable of all, dishing five first-period assists.

"I thought we took care of business from the jump, and I think the biggest difference was that we were very unselfish," said David Lee, who scored 17 points with nine rebounds. "This was a great team win for us."

As for the reserves, well, it was bit of a different story. The Warriors announced before the game that backup point guard Toney Douglas would be lost for at least two weeks with a stress reaction in his left tibia.

Jackson said before the game that with Douglas out, Iguodala would assume more point guard responsibilities when Curry is out but added that Kent Bazemore would be the first bench option and rookie Nemanja Nedovic might get some chances, too.
