Warriors’ insane run of dominance at home gives off major championship vibes
After two missed playoff appearances, the Golden State Warriors are back to dominating the league. Steph Curry and Draymond Green continue to excel together with Steve Kerr orchestrating it all. Klay Thompson finally returning to the court will only bolster the Warriors even further.
Golden State sits atop the whole NBA with a 19-3 record, which includes only one home loss and 11 consecutive home wins since then. Each of those wins has been decided by at least 13 points.
The only other team to achieve this? The Curry-Green-Thompson-led Warriors themselves, back in the 2014-15 season.
The Warriors have won 11 straight home games by 13+ points.
The only other team to EVER do this:

Curry is putting together another MVP-caliber season. He’s shooting threes more frequently than ever before and is in a neck-and-neck race with Kevin Durant for the scoring title by averaging 27.6 points per game while shooting 44.9 percent from the field 41.8 percent from beyond the arc.
Green remains a top-level defender and playmaker. Thompson will be back any day now. While he has been out, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole have picked up the load as the team’s second and third scorers, each averaging just over 18 points per game. The Warriors’ mix of established stars and productive newcomers has been working better than anticipated.
With the best defensive rating in the league and the second-best offensive rating, Golden State is gearing up for another lengthy playoff run.
