The Golden State Warriors are making a mockery of those who predicted that they would have problems integrating Kevin Durant into the team.

Following a slightly shaky start where they lost to the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers in two of their opening six games, the Warriors have not looked back.

They are currently on an 11-game winning streak and are turning into the force that everybody feared when they added the 2014 MVP to their ranks.

Durant has made a seamless transition to the Dubs and is enjoying a hugely productive season. He currently leads the team in scoring, averaging 27.2 points per game, whilst shooting a career-best 57.4 percent from the field.

In the team's most recent win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, KD also managed to add his name to the Golden State record books.

After finishing the game with 28 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and five assists, Durant became the first player in team history to post at least 25 points, 10 boards, five blocks and five assists in a contest, per ESPN Stats & Info (via Elias Sports Bureau).

The recent form of the seven-time All-Star and the Bay Area franchise shows just why they're the heavy favourites to win the championship this year.

They'll have a chance to extend their winning run to 12 games as they host the Atlanta Hawks tonight.
