What the Warriors are doing right now is simply amazing. The team has won eleven games, and suffered no losses, since the start of the season. All of this has been accomplished even though they are without their coach – Coach Kerr – who is out due to persistent health issues.
The Warriors beat the Brooklyn Nets over the weekend in overtime, after letting the now 1-9 Nets come very close to pulling off the biggest upset of the year. It took Andre Iguodala hitting a 3-point shot in the final seconds of regulation to send the game into overtime. But once there, the Warriors dominated.
Their home-court winning streak is now 24, third best in NBA history. Their 15-game regular-season winning streak dating back to last year is one off the franchise record. And they have now scored over 100 points in 40 consecutive home games.
At the heart of all this of course is Stephen Curry, who is averaging 33 points a game. Many analysts say he might be literally changing the way basketball is played. Michael Jordan changed the game by playing above the rim, and in a similar way, Steph Curry might be changing the game by playing beyond the 3-point arc.
