You have to go back to 1991-92 to find a Warriors team that came out to play like this year's squad at the start of an NBA season. Golden State's two-point win at Miami was its fifth straight victory -- and all have come on the road. Klay Thompson has emerged as a scorer, Stephen Curry is healthy and David Lee has five consecutive 20-point, 10-rebound games. But the Warriors' biggest advantage might be their ability to make key plays late, as ESPN Stats & Information explains. Is Golden State riding a hot streak that's bound to level out, or is this a team to be reckoned with in the West?
