The Golden State Warriors were having a very up-and-down season even before Stephen Curry got sidelined with his latest injury.
That means that every recent game has been important as they try to acquire as many wins as possible prior to the postseason.
Their latest stretch of games has been quite impressive.
Warriors insider Anthony Slater noted on Twitter that the Warriors have just completed a 5-0 run at home without the help of Curry or Andrew Wiggins.
That's a 5-0 homestand for the Warriors without Steph Curry or Andrew Wiggins. Trailed by 17 to the Pelicans tonight. Won by nine. Fourth straight game they've been down double digits and won. They're 27-7 at home and 34-30 overall. Road trip: Lakers, Thunder, Grizzlies.

Despite trailing by 17 points to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday, the Warriors still pulled off a 9-point victory.
In fact, Slater points out that they have been down by double digits four straight times and still won.
This means the Warriors are now 27-7 at home and 34-30 overall for the season.
They are the reigning champions of the NBA but the Warriors haven’t been the most dominant team in the West this year.
They sit as the fifth team in their conference right now, which is much higher than they were just several weeks ago.
The fact that the team has been able to score important wins without Curry is exciting news for fans.
It’s made all the more exciting because Curry is set to return to the court on Sunday when the Warriors face off against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Golden State is about to go on a three-game road trip, taking on the Lakers, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Memphis Grizzlies.
Their schedule gets even harder after that, with the Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, and Los Angeles Clippers all on their horizon.
