(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer Mark Jackson jokes that when he saw Stephen Curry return to the court for the first time since the point guard's most recent right ankle surgery, he thought he could ''really be a better coach this year.''
The truth, as even Jackson admits, is that nobody is questioning the Golden State Warriors' ways now, in large part because nobody is questioning Curry's health.
The Warriors (17-9) are off to their best start since the 1991-92 season, when the team began 21-8 behind Tim Hardaway and Chris Mullin. Golden State enters Friday night's game against Curry's hometown Charlotte Bobcats playing like a playoff-bound team in the Western Conference.
After two surgeries and countless issues with his ankle, Curry is averaging career highs of 19.9 points and 6.3 assists per game this season.

Not the kind that comes to Jackson when he preaches from the pulpit for his ministry. Nor the sort he shouts from the sideline as the Golden State Warriors' coach. Instead, he just kept quiet and smiled...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- David Lee had another big game in what Golden State coach Mark Jackson believes is already an All-Star worthy season for the Warriors veteran forward.
