But Kevin Durant and Shaun Livingston, who started for Curry, got Golden State up by eight late in the second period before an Orlando rally tied the game at 56 heading to the second half. The veteran point guard has averaged 11.5 Fanduel points in 16.5 minutes per game this year.
The Golden State Warriors are beginning to look the part as the most dominant team in the National Basketball Association, as the team has rattled off six consecutive victories in impressive fashion.
The Warriors (10-3) are looking at playing without one of their superstars for the second time in the past week as Stephen Curry (thigh bruise) figures to miss the Magic. 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. Green chipped in 20 markers, with three triples.
Tesco's £3.7bn takeover of Booker gets green light from regulator
The Competition and Markets Authority has provisionally cleared Tesco's £3.7 billion merger with the cash-and-carry group Booker. "In particular, Tesco does not supply the catering sector to which Booker makes more than 30% of its sales", the CMA added.
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.
Ultimately, even without Curry to open up the Warriors' offense, Golden State had all the star power it needed to collect another blowout victory.
The Warriors return to action on Thursday night in Boston as they take on the Celtics, the top team in the Eastern Conference.
