For the Bay Area football teams, the playoffs are in the rear view window, however the Warriors are the hottest topic Bay setting a new NBA record going 16-0 beating the Lakers 111-77.
We won't bore you with the boring details, you already know what happened. What I will share is what Interim head coach Luke Walton shared about his mentor and head coach Steve Kerr and the four core values he instilled in his team. (1) Joy, (2) Mindullness (3) Compassion (4) Competition; they want to be a team that's fun to watch, teach and be around.
''Feels great, especially the way we did it," said Walton afterwards. "To actually break the record on the night we were sharing the ball." "To do it as well as we did it tonight makes it even that more special."
Walton said its a mini goal they've accomplished. Challenges and the streak brings out the best in Kerr's guys.
Their core values show on the court. Whatever you call it; sharing the ball, free ball, this unselfish team is doing it with the bench scoring 42 points, everyone scored with the exception of Ian Clark.
It was a night to honor those from Saginaw, Michigan, former Warriors great Jason Richardson, was honored for the Hardwood Classics game and forward Draymond Green was honored with his own bobblehead.
Richardson said it was scary how he and Draymon's lives mirrored each other with both being from Saginaw, attending Michigan State and being drafted by the Warriors.

"Draymond was the best player on the court in my opinon," said Walton of Green who was the second leading scorer with 18 points to Stephen Curry's 24.
The team heads for one road game against the Suns on a back to back hosting Sacramento Saturday at ORACLE.
