The next day, the Warriors were in Orlando to face the Magic.  On a back-to-back in the middle of a road trip all the way on the East Coast, this game was looked at as one the Warriors could lose.


Golden State stayed hot, beating Orlando 111-96.  The Dubs got off to an early 10-0 lead and didn’t let up.  The final score doesn’t reflect how out of hand this game once was.  At the end of the third quarter, the Warriors were up by 27 points, so this one was never in doubt.

Curry picked up right where he left off against Miami, hitting six threes in this one. He finished with 28 points and didn’t play the entire fourth quarter.

Another Curry highlight, for your viewing pleasure:

Post-game, Kerr gloated about his point guard:

"“I always think he’s going to make every shot. That’s what you expect. He’s got the most beautiful rhythm to his shot that I’ve ever seen,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said."

Thanks to the extra minutes the bench played during the blowout, seven Warriors were able to score double digits.  This includes Shaun Livingston, whose 11 points marked the first time he scored in double digits this season.

The defense was outstanding once again, holding the Magic to just 96 points, even with reserves playing big minutes.

Here’s what Curry had to say on the victory:

"“Right now I think we have a pretty high level of tunnel vision to stay in the moment, cherish every opportunity to play,” Curry said. “We’re winning in different styles, everybody’s getting involved and you enjoy that as you go along.”"

Seven wins in a row. 12-2 record.
