New Orleans
Golden State

[GOLDEN STATE] — The Golden State Warriors played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night and the homeside took care of business. A 123-101 win has the Warriors and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Golden State's record up to 66-14 on the season, while the loss drags New Orleans's down to 33-47. 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.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Kevin Durant's 16 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 31 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. 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.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Jrue Holiday did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Pelicans. Holiday's 10 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

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 Pelicans, 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 Utah Jazz while the visiting Pelicans will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers.
