The Utah Jazz and Toronto Raptors came so close, but another week showed that no one can beat the Golden State Warriors right now. When that may change and plenty more in this week’s NBA Rewind.
Two teams came within three points of doing so, but week 6 was yet another week where the Golden State Warriors extended their undefeated streak as they reached 22-0. The Utah Jazz were close on Monday and the Toronto Raptors (led by Kyle Lowry’s career-high 41 points) only fell right at the end on Saturday. At long last someone challenged the Warriors. Even though it wasn’t quite enough, these two teams at least provided some major entertainment and gave the Warriors a scare.
So, can Paul George’s Indiana Pacers rival them on Tuesday? Maybe if George can muster something amazing they can, but otherwise it looks like the Warriors’ streak will continue and the likelihood of them reaching 70 wins increases.
However, that’s enough talk about “the streak” for now. In week 6, we saw the Philadelphia 76ers do the impossible and actually win, the New Orleans Pelicans beat LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, some vintage Dwyane Wade, PG13 dominating, 10 threes in a sudden explosion from Wesley Matthews, and plenty of other action that needs some discussion.
That’s what this series will be for throughout the season, and these are the current segments that will be featured to breakdown every week of NBA action:
- The key games and results of the week
- Who’s heating up?
- Who’s struggling?
- The best highlights of the week
- A weekly rookie watch
- Under-the-radar players to watch out for next week
First, let’s start with what we can takeaway from some of the week’s key results.
