The calendar is one full week into the month of December and the Golden State Warriors are still undefeated. It’s hard to become more impressed by a team that has accomplished this much, but the next milestone is matching the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak from the 2013 season.
In addition to the Warriors going streaking, Kobe Bryant and the Lakers are causing packed houses in arenas throughout the country.
