Playing sans Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors ran their win streak to seven, taking care of the Orlando Magic, 110-100, on Monday night at Oracle Arena.

Kevin Durant scored a game-high 21 points, while Draymodn Green, helped fill the Curry-sized void in the offense, dropping 20. 

Durant delivered an MVP-worthy sequence with just over four minutes to go in the half. With an assist from Kevon Looney, Durant blocked Aaron Gordon, pulled down the rebound, dribbled up the floor, crossed over the Magic forward and drained the long 2-pointer from near the top of the key.

In the place of Curry, Shaun Livingston went for 16 points and accounted for six assists in 20 minutes.

Before the game, head coach Steve Kerr continued his press-conference hijinks, playing with a Rubik's cube as he announced Curry's absence. The coach also lavised praise on ex-Dub and current Magic big Marreese Speights.

“Love Mo Speights. One of my favorites,” Kerr said. “Just a huge heart."
