The Golden State Warriors are in an amazing winning streak as they scripted their eight straight win of the NBA season. They dismantled Indiana Pacers, emerging victorious by 37 points, 120-83.
It was an easy victory for the Warriors with Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry in dazzling form, scoring 25 and 22 points respectively. Their other star Kevin Durant had a relatively quiet night as he scored 14 points, but he was strong in the rebound, collecting 11.
Curry and Thompson have been brilliant this season, already scoring massive points for the Warriors. The duo love drilling those three, but they only combined for six three-pointers on Monday. It was such an easy victory for the Warriors that none of the players, including the trio of Curry, Durant and Thompson played more than 30 minutes each.
The Pacers were aware about the humongous task, facing Warriors, who have been in sparkling form. The Warriors got off to a bright start, outscoring the home team in the first quarter by 13 points as the score read 34-21.
For a team like Warriors, if they get a good start, it becomes very difficult to stop them. They become a non-stop train, which never looks back.
After their great start, Warriors consolidated onto that with all the players getting into their game and contributing in the remaining three quarters. They outscored Pacers in all quarters of the game, which explains their dominance.
If the Pacers were to have any hope of winning the contest, Jeff Teague had to play a huge role in the offensive front, which was missing on Monday. He only managed to score 11 points. Rodney Stuckey top-scored for the Pacers with 21 points, however, it was not enough to stop the Warriors' train.
The Warriors face LA Lakers in their next game on Wednesday.
