No Kevin Durant, no problem for the Warriors.
With their All-Star small forward still resting an injured knee, the Warriors have had other members of the team step up while compiling a 10-game winning streak. The latest win occurred Friday when Golden State rallied for a 107-98 win over the visiting Rockets.

“We had a special memories,” George said. “We’ve definitely got a bond on that court. Hopefully we pick up where we left off. He’s excited.
