On and on the Warriors roll, piling up victory after victory over the weakest members of the NBA pack.
They completed a sweep of a their five-game road trip and ran their overall win streak to nine with a 104-93 victory over the reeling Pistons on Sunday at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Five Warriors (14-2) scored in double figures, with forward Draymond Green dropping in 20 points to lead the way. Stephen Curry finished with 16 points and 10 assists, while Klay Thompson added 15 points, Marreese Speights dropped in 11 and Shaun Livingston tossed in 12.
Speights, continuing his campaign for Sixth Man of the Year, submitted his first double-double of the season: 11 rebounds to go along with the 11 points.
Green, a Saginaw native returning to his home state, had his best game of the trip, adding six rebounds, two assists ferocious defense to his point total.
Once again, defense was at the core of the Warriors' victory. They held the Pistons to 27.7 percent shooting in the first half, and 36.3 percent for the game.
Facing their fourth sub-.500 opponent in five games, the Warriors swept a five-game road trip for the second time in franchise history. The Pistons (3-14), led by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's 23 points, fell for the eighth consecutive game.
Curry tweaked his ankle and sustained a cut on his elbow but was able to return to the game in the fourth quarter.
Green was the man who took this game out of the Pistons' reach. The former Michigan State star in the first three quarters totaled 19 points, 15 of which came on five 3-point bombs.
Andrew Bogut defended the paint with alacrity, blocking five shots in 29 minutes.
Down 24-21 after one quarter, the Warriors opened the second quarter with a 13-3 run, going up 34-27 on two Livingston free throws 7:12 before the half.
The Pistons never again caught up, as the Warriors pushed the lead to 13 (53-40) at the half, and took their first 20-point lead (62-42) when Green nailed a trey with 9:49 left in the third quarter. Detroit never got closer than 10 in the second half.
F David Lee (strained left hamstring) returned to the Bay Area to receive treatment. The Warriors hope he can return during the upcoming two-game home stand.
The Warriors return to Oakland, where on Tuesday night they face the Orlando Magic at Oracle Arena.
