    "Undefeated" means through game of 12/31/15 only. If the Suns don't beat Warriors on Friday, it may be a while.

    Nobody is close to beating Golden State. Team might not lose all year. Pistons do have a shot as tickets are sky-rocking.

    ABC is licking their chops that they would still be undefeated when they play the Cavaliers on Christmas.

    Hakeem Olajuwon on how to beat the Warriors:

    "You have to understand small ball has always been popular, but any time you have a dominant big man, it causes so much trouble on that end, meaning lots of double-teams," Olajuwon said of the best way to counter Golden State's schemes. "When you double-team, that leaves opportunities for wide-open shots or three-point shooters."

    "The small ball is nothing new," Olajuwon continued. "How about Don Nelson with his big three? It was (Mitch) Richmond, (Tim) Hardaway and Chris Mullin. That's how they played. ... They played small ball. But in the playoffs, we'd run and set up and post up even back then. They won a lot of games. But when it came to the playoffs, they got killed. That was the problem with small ball."

    "If a 6'7" guy is guarding me, I'm going to get a layup all day," Olajuwon said. "He's too small. He doesn't have the size. So, now what do they do? Guard with two or three guys, double-team. Then you swing it around to shoot threes."

    "No, no, no," Olajuwon protested in response to the prospect of playing differently if he were in his prime nowadays. "You've got to use the inside game and win the battle. People who are saying the post game is dead don't know anything about basketball because you can always have that guy to dominate the post."

    Suns, Jazz, Raptors, Pacers, Bucks, Cavs, Mavs and Rockets all will have a chance to beat them -- teams that go on win streaks to start the season have been very average the rest of the year historically -- watch the wheels come of this team after the first loss

    Especially as should that be the case, they would be going for their 34th straight win dating back to last season which would beat the all-time longest winning streak in the NBA.

    Won't happen though.

    This is a tough one, who would've thought the Nets were the only team with an almost sure lead in the 4Q against the GSW. On paper, the way GS are playing right now nobody will be a fav against them. But yeah, the question is how to find those letdown spots.
