The Warriors "toaster streak" now stands at 10 wins and that could be extended to 11 by the end of the weekend. Stephen Curry has been in top form the last couple of weeks and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. The reigning unanimous MVP has been tearing defenses apart and outplaying everyone on the floor, including the top three MVP candidates with recent wins over San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Houston. During this run he has averaged 25.5 points, 8 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals while shooting 44% on three-pointers and 49% from the field.

Warriors fans have to be delighted with the way this team is clicking in the run up to the postseason, especially with the return of Kevin Durant on the horizon. For those who have lost count, he will be reevaluated seven days from now.

With the playoffs right around the corner, the Washington Wizards will want to take this opportunity to measure themselves against the best team in the world. Their short stint on the road out West hasn't been great, losing back to back games against the L.A Clippers and Utah Jazz, but on a good night this team is more than capable of keeping up with anyone.

While John Wall had plenty to say about the officiating following the Wizard’s game against the Jazz, he has shown great leadership this season and has had a fantastic run recently. In the five games before the matchup against Utah, Wall was averaging 31 points, 10 assists, 3 steals and 3 rebounds on 55% shooting from the field.

The Washington Wizards are one of only two teams over .500 that the Warriors have left to play before the playoffs. And if Utah coach Quin Snyder is to be believed, the Warriors will be facing off against the best backcourt in the NBA... I'm sure the Splash Brothers can't wait.
