OAKLAND-The Golden State Warriors have a "luxury", on thier hands and on Monday night at Oracle Arena, head coach Steve Kerr made a decision to show the rest of the league just how much of an advantage that luxury provides.

An early-week absence for Curry could spell the first start of the season for the newly re-signed Shaun Livingston, who would likely get the nod at the point if he sits out. The veteran point guard has averaged 11.5 Fanduel points in 16.5 minutes per game this year.

Still, the Warriors are fully capable of holding serve, especially at home, against an improved Magic team without him and that is what makes Golden State all the more terrifying.

Nikola Vucevic had 20 points to lead the Magic (8-6) who have lost two in a row. And Golden State outscored Orlando, 32-19, in the period to take an 88-75 lead to the fourth.

A pair of Draymond Green baskets helped the Warriors to a 10-2 run to start the second half, and by the midpoint of the quarter, a wide open Klay Thompson three-pointer gave Golden State a 13-point advantage.

THE Golden State Warriors rode another third quarter surge to a 110-100 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) at the Oracle Arena.

Orlando, which dropped a 125-107 game in Denver on Saturday, also features ex-Warrior Marreese Speights in a reserve role.
