Fatigued from last night's win over the defending champions in Miami, the Warriors staged a 15 point comeback on Friday night in Atlanta that was punctuated by an Andre Iguodala three pointer as time expired to give Golden State a 101-100 victory.

Iguodala finished with seven points, five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes.

This was his second buzzer-beater of the season, the first came in a 116-115 win over Oklahoma City on Nov. 14 at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors improve to 22-13 and reeled off their eighth consecutive win since losing to at home to San Antonio on Dec. 19 - they've beaten the Lakers, Nuggets, Clippers, Suns, Cavaliers, Magic, Heat and Hawks in succession. The last five have been road games.

They now head to the nation's capital to play the Wizards on Sunday before finishing up this road trip with a back-to-back at Milwaukee and Brooklyn on Jan. 7-8.

The Warriors are 17-6 with Iguodala in the lineup. He missed 12 games with a hamstring injury earlier this season.
