UNDATED (AP) -- Golden State tries to keep up its strong start to the season when it continues its five-game road trip in Miami tonight. The 10-2 Warriors have won five in a row and are off to their best start to a season in 41 years. Golden State is led by Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, two of the league's top 10 scorers, who are both averaging over 22 points a game. Miami has won two in a row, despite playing the last six games without Dwyane Wade, who's been sidelined with a strained left hamstring.

Sacramento is trying to keep pace with the Warriors at the top of the Pacific Division. The 8-5 Kings visit 7-5 New Orleans. Sacramento goes into tonight's play trailing the division-leading Warriors by 2 1/2 games.

Chicago is back in action on the road at Denver tonight. The Bulls are 7-2 in away games this season, including a two-point squeaker at Utah last night. Chicago tops the Central Division at 9-5.

Detroit will try to snap a four-game losing streak when it visits Milwaukee in the other game on the schedule.

The Wolverines are also 4-0 after they beat Oregon. Michigan is playing a stretch of five games in ten days.

The Ducks take on VCU in the consolation game of the tournament.

No. 3 Arizona is hoping to reverse a trend that has seen them get out to slow starts in three of their four wins thus far. Arizona meets 3-1 Kansas State in a Wildcats fight in the winners' bracket of the Maui Invitational.

No. 15 San Diego State meets Pittsburgh is another winner's bracket game at the tournament. The Aztecs are off to a 4-0 start including coach Steve Fisher's 500th career win against BYU last night.
