The Warriors remained undefeated in exhibition play with their win over Israeli professional team Maccabi Haifa.

The Golden State Warriors had their third dress rehearsal of the season on Thursday night at Oracle Arena in Oakland, and used a well-rounded attack to take out Israel's Haifa Maccabi by the score of 108-100.

Rookie Harrison Barnes made his first-career start and netted 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field, 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. Fellow rookie Festus Ezeli, who will see a brunt of the minutes at center with Andrew Bogut still out, looked strong from the get-go and had 15 points and eight rebounds. Newcomer Carl Landry, a free agent signee, led the way for Golden State, with 24 points and eight boards.

Stephen Curry, who is still working his way back from offseason ankle surgery, finished the game with 13 points and 10 assists on just under 23 minutes of play for the Warriors, who are now 3-0 in exhibition play.

American Donta Smith, a 2004 second-round draft choice of the Atlanta Hawks, led visiting Maccabi Haifa with 28 points and eight rebounds. Speedy 5'10 point guard Paul Stoll gave several Warriors matchup problems all night, adding 18 points and three steals to the Haifa total.

The Warriors now prepare for their next preseason matchup against the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Monday, Oct. 15. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. PT.
