The defending champs just keep on rolling.
With a 132-100 win in Indiana, Golden State (36-15) has now won 11 straight games - its last loss came in overtime to Houston on Jan. 3. The streak becomes even more impressive when taking into account the fact that the Warriors have won eight of these games on the road.
All-Star Stephen Curry continued his stellar play Monday night as he led the way for the Warriors with 26 points in just over 26 minutes of action. Curry shot 10-for-13 from the field and connected on five of his eight 3-point attempts. The Warriors guard has eclipsed the mark of 200 total 3-pointers in a season for the seventh consecutive year, and he's done so in just 39 games.
