Warriors vs. Heat: Golden State comes in confident

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors won each of the first four games of the team's seven-game road trip and are looking to make it five-in-a-row against the Heat on Wednesday night.

The Miami Heat have lost just one game at home this season, but that hasn't dissuaded the Golden State Warriors from the belief that they can be the team to hand the NBA's defending champions a second loss at AmericanAirlines Arena on Wednesday night.

Warriors head coach Mark Jackson spoke to Marcus Thompson of San Jose Mercury News about the confidence of his team entering Wednesday night's game:

"If we do what we're supposed to do, we're going to be fine," coach Mark Jackson said. "We feel good about it. It shows how far we've come, and it shows the mindset of this basketball team."

The Warriors began a seven-game road trip last Wednesday with a trip to play the Detroit Pistons. Now on game five of the trip, the Warriors have yet to earn a loss and carry a four-game winning streak into Miami.

During the winning streak, the Warriors have scored at least 100 points in each game and have vaulted themselves up to fifth in the Western Conference. The Heat bounced back from consecutive losses last week to win back-to-back games prior to Wednesday's game against the Warriors.
