On Monday evening, though, Steve Kerr's team will be short-handed for a home game against the Orlando Magic, as two-time MVP point guard Stephen Curry will be on the sideline as a result of a thigh contusion. But Kevin Durant and Shaun Livingston, who started for Curry, got Golden State up by eight late in the second period before an Orlando rally tied the game at 56 heading to the second half. Forward Jordan Bell will also be inactive.

The injury is not too serious as Curry was previously listed as questionable prior to the final decision. He's shooting 46.7 percent from the field overall, chucking up over nine 3-point attempts per game, knocking down 38.8 percent of them.

The Golden State Warriors are beginning to look the part as the most dominant team in the National Basketball Association, as the team has rattled off six consecutive victories in impressive fashion. Livingston isn't a threat from three but the most unselfish team in the league can still find ways to score.

The Warriors turned to defense in the fourth, holding the Magic to just six points halfway through the period while extending the lead to 21, 102-81, after back-to-back baskets from Draymond Green with 5:11 to play. The Warriors begin a four-game road trip on Thursday in Boston, so hopefully Curry heals in time for the showdown vs. the Celtics.
