[GOLDEN STATE] — The Golden State Warriors played host to the Detroit Pistons last night and the homeside took care of business. A 127-107 win has the Warriors and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Golden State's record up to 34-6 on the season, while the loss drags Detroit's down to 18-23. Though a win's a win and Warriors fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.
On this night it was Kevin Durant leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 25 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 31 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Durant included - and the most important part is that the Warriors walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.
Joining Durant in the winning effort was Draymond Green. Had it not been for Green rounding out the Warriors's attack with 2 points, 9 rebounds and 13 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.
Golden State's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Pistons, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Warriors will settle for the upper hand in this one.
Up next for the reeling Warriors will be a date with the Cleveland Cavaliers while the visiting Pistons will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Utah Jazz.
