    This thread makes me confident that we are just one catastrophic Warrior injury away from competing with them in a 7-game series.

    Dear Jesus, please make it be Draymond.

    Doesn't even have to be catastrophic... just timely.

    Alright cool. Still I think it’s very difficult to distinguish ‘garbage time’ from the rest of the game. Seems nearly impossible.

    Now up to 6th best team on defense with a rating of 103.8. We are behind Spurs for 5th who are at 103.6.

    So close to being top 5 in offense and defense

    Rockets are officially #1 in point differential.

    Rockets and Warriors are clearing on a different league of their own right now.

    What an awful website layout, but I found it:

    1st in offense
    6th in defense
    1st in overall efficiency differential

    GSW has a lot of talent, no question. I'm trying to figure out who these are:
    Top 5 KD, obvi
    Top 5 Curry (debatable)
    Top 10 ? Green
    Top 20 ? Klay
    Top 50 ? Igoudala

    I'm thinking:

    KD Top 3-5
    Curry Top 5-10
    Green Top 20-30
    Klay Top 50

    I will say that Green is the straw that stirs the drink. If he goes they can't win it all, even with Durant. That doesn't make Green their best player, but maybe their most important player. They could win with: KD/Curry/Green, Curry/Klay/Green, but not KD, Curry, Klay IMHO.

    No big deal, just wondering where you put their players.

    ESPN had this

    Top 5 KD, obvi
    Top 5 Curry (debatable)
    Top 10 Green
    Top 20 Klay
    Top 50 Igoudala

    I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have been champs last year without Finals MVP Durant. They learned that 2 years ago. They need Durant to beat Lebron & Co

    Green is their most important player in their situation. They can compete for a championship if Curry, Klay, or Durant go down.

    If Draymond goes down they are back to being a soft squad.

    I get what you are saying and see how green provided the grit,defense,heart,attitude, competitive spirit, and playing but id still feel much more confident facing them without curry than without green.

    I think curry is their most important player.

    If curry went down then gsw would suffer a lot more than if green went down IMO

    We could always just outplay them and hit timely shots like we did in the bay area during game 1 of the season. Do that 4 times and we've got a great shot at winning a series. I believe, historically, no one has ever lost when winning 4 in a best of 7. I'll have to do research.

    I know the 1906 World Series went to 9 games in a best of 7 so weird things are out there.

    I saw something about us have the highest defensive rating in the league since Paul returned

    Starting to feel like more of a possibility! Life is good under the red neon roof.

    Now officially top 5 in offensive (#2) and defensive rating (#5)

    Non garbage time stats are 1st and 4th.

    IMO only "glaring" need is a 3rd PG off the bench so that we don't have to play Bobby Brown and lose our 20-30+ leads and give Harden some rest
