The Warriors felt the absence of Stephen Curry, sidelined with a right thigh contusion, early after falling behind by five in the first quarter.

Without Curry, shots that seemingly come easily within the flow of the Warriors' offense were more hard to find, and rather unsurprisingly, Golden State relied on several backdoor cuts and a handful of Kevin Durant isolation plays to pace the team in the first half. Gordon's game continues to evolve to the point where he's no longer just a dunking machine - he now leads the National Basketball Association in 3-point shooting, making a whopping 55.3 percent of his tries. And Golden State outscored Orlando, 32-19, in the period to take an 88-75 lead to the fourth.

Orlando began to sit its starters at that point and Golden State's reserves held on to preserve the lead for the Warriors' seventh straight win. After West corralled a rebound, he and Speights exchanged words and had to be separated by officials.

After Monday's game, the Warriors fly to Boston to face the red-hot Celtics in a nationally televised game Thursday.
