The Warriors keep on rolling.
With the addition of Boogie Cousins, the Golden State Warriors have become even more unstoppable and it's manifesting on the court. The Warriors played the Indiana Pacers on Monday night and promptly obliterated them, picking up a 132-100 victory. The win was the team's 11th in a row and their 10th road win in a row. With the victory, Golden State is now 36-14 on the season and are first place in the Western Conference. Now with only 32 games left this season, Warriors star Steph Curry is already looking towards the playoffs.
"Coach hit us with what game this is -- I think it's 50," Curry said according to ESPN. "And you think about how quickly that springs on you. You get back from All-Star break, you still have 30 games and you're like, 'All right, this is playoff mentality time,' and you start to ramp it up, so we're starting early."
Curry had a game-high 26 points last night with Cousins picking up another 22. Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both picked up 16 points each. Curry spoke about Cousins impact since returning from injury.
"Every game, he's looking a little bit more athletic, more confident," Curry said. "Got a little bit more of a rhythm. Understanding where he's going to get his touches. Just the way he runs in transition defensively, the effort he's bringing on that end of the floor, as well."
The Warriors will look to extend their winning streak when they take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.
