Livingston shines in Curry's absence as Warriors roll to seventh straight win

Stephen Curry Is Set To Miss Golden State's Game Against Orlando With A Thigh Injury

On Monday evening, though, Steve Kerr's team will be short-handed for a home game against the Orlando Magic, as two-time MVP point guard Stephen Curry will be on the sideline as a result of a thigh contusion.

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.

Curry is now averaging 25.2 points, 6.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game this season. 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.

After heading to the locker rooms tied at 56-56, the teams returned to the floor in the third quarter and Golden State again used its excellent conditioning to create wide open opportunities and generate meaningful separation from Orlando. Green chipped in 20 markers, with three triples.

Iguodala's ball-handling was instrumental in the Warriors' offensive success Monday, and his third quarter drive on Magic guard Elfrid Payton served as one of Golden State's best offensive highlights.

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