The Golden State Warriors are finally on that streak of wins coach Steve Kerr has talked about seemingly all season long.
Well, the team has at least hit a milestone. The Warriors won their fourth-straight game for the first time this season with a 119-101 road win against the Cavaliers on Thursday. Superstar guard Stephen Curry had 33 points, though he started slowly on offense. Golden State’s bench played well in the second quarter and throughout the game, most notably forward Juan Toscano-Anderson, who had a career-high 20 points.
The Warriors got back to the .500 mark, with a 28-28 record. And though the team is on a season-best streak, Curry is looking for “another level” of play from his squad.
Golden State needs to find that level if it’s to keep rising in the standings. The Warriors’ win against the Cavaliers put them in ninth place in the Western Conference, just two games in the loss column behind the eighth-place Grizzlies.
It’s not normal for Curry to fight for such lowly playoff position, which is probably why he’s looking for that next gear. He knows how to get there, and for the last sizable batch of games, he’s certainly led the way. Look for him to do the same moving forward and into the playoffs.
