Life comes at you fast in the NBA.
The Boston Celtics are the best team in the league at 9-1 and pushed their winning streak to nine after beating the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. The Golden State Warriors -- yes, those Warriors -- are the worst.
Golden State sits at 2-10 with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson out due to injury and has lost four straight entering Friday's matchup with the Celtics at the Chase Center.
The C's gave the Warriors headaches back when they were the best team in the NBA -- the teams are 4-4 in their last eight matchups -- so Kemba Walker and Co. will be aiming for a decisive win to kick off their five-game West Coast road trip.
Here's how to watch NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-Warriors.
