With a five-game winning streak, Golden State is the hottest team in the West right now along with Sacramento who has the same streak.
The difference between them is that the Warriors are doing it without their star.
As you know, Steph Kerry was absent for the last month due to a leg injury, but this did not prevent the champion from ending a streak of five home games with 100% success and establishing themselves in fifth place in the West.
Tonight (between Friday and Saturday) the Warriors said goodbye to the crowd before an away trip with 99:108 over New Orleans, when for the fourth time in a row the host team won after trailing by double digits (tonight they trailed by 17).
"We overcome obstacles, reverse deficits, improve the defense and get these wins," said coach Steve Kerr, "It's exciting to see the team, but we need to get wins on the road."
Keep winning without Kerry.

The games outside of San Francisco are indeed the Achilles heel of the champion this season, which holds a dismal record of 23:7 away compared to a positive 7:27 in the home hall.
The team now has visits to Los Angeles with the Lakers, Oklahoma City and Memphis, and Kerr said Curry may be back against the Lakers.
On the other hand, it is not at all certain that Andrew Wiggins, who was also absent from the last few games due to a family reason, will go on the foreign trip.
Clay Thompson, who led with 27 points, celebrated: "Players understood their role and we are in a great position. We are having fun, we know how important the remaining games are and we will do everything to try and get the home advantage."

In the dramatic game of the night, New York achieved an eighth consecutive victory with 120:122 in Miami thanks to a huge three-pointer by Julius Randle with 0.7 seconds left.
The forward of the Knicks almost lost the ball during the decisive move, but as mentioned provided an amazing shot that sealed a night of 43 points.
Following the loss and the corresponding victory of Brooklyn, the seventh Miami is already two and a half games away from the sixth place which automatically leads to the playoffs (without the play-in games).
In the meantime, Miami has six losses in the last seven games, and now the teams chasing it are also closing the gap.
"We didn't deserve to win," admitted Jimmy Butler following his team's crisis.
His coach, Erik Spoelstra, had a hard time believing what he saw in the last move: "If they had run this move 100 times, in 99 cases it would have ended in our favor."
