Warriors look to put together winning streak

The Warriors got off to a strong start but are stumbling of late with Andre Iguodala out of the lineup. The Warriors will look to put back-to-back wins together for the first time in over two weeks when they host the Toronto Raptors Tuesday.

Golden State is 2-3 since Iguodala went down with a hamstring strain and won for just the second time in seven contests with a 115-113 triumph in Sacramento on Sunday.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson did most of the damage in Sunday’s triumph as the Warriors pulled out a close victory after dropping their previous two by a total of five points. Thompson knocked down a career-high eight 3-pointers and Curry went off for 36 points.

<p> “It’s been frustrating as of late not being able to close out games, especially on the road,” Curry said. “… Everybody pitched in [against the Kings]. It was a good learning lesson for us to continue to stick to the program.”

The Raptors dropped their last three games and are beginning a three-game West Coast road trip. Despite that, Toronto is somehow leading the Atlantic Division as Philadelphia, Boston, New York and Brooklyn take turns posting disappointing results.
