    Warriors are starting to heat up ladies and gents

    IM not gonna sit here and say they are gonna win and all like I did with the SFGiants, but when healthy this is a very very good team at home.

    I expect them to pull into the playoffs as the 8th or 7th seed.

    Ellis, Wright, Curry, Lee, and Brandan Wright is starting to play a little bit.

    Acie Law is a travesty, wish he would get hit by a truck, but oh well. The rest of this team is very good.

    Long home trip too - 13 out of 14 games.

    They started hot, went cold, they'll miss the playoffs.

    They have good starters when all are healthy, but no they have very thin bench. I don't think they have a shot for playoffs.

    Very solid starters when all are healthy, but they have very thin bench. Slim chances for playoffs. There's more than 8 better teams in the west.

    Well the top 7 is set and the battle for 8 is Portland, Phoenix, Houston, Memphis, Golden State, Los Angeles. Hard to predict how things will go but I will be shocked if Warriors beat out all of those teams. If Carmelo gets traded and Denver starts losing like crazy then that would open up another spot.

    I love the Warriors, I've watched every game this year and get over to Oakland as much as I can. But I can't see anything playoff related this year. That bench is just too bad. As you said, Acie Law is a horrible option. So is almost all of our bench. If Biedrens was playing better than average this year I'd be a lot more stoked. They can't run their starters out there 45 minutes each every game and there's no way they'll win enough on the road. Plus, Smart is not always that bright.

    But they sure are fun to watch! Hope they can fill in their holes soon.

    Doesn't matter anyways, they are your typical all-offense little defense teams that can't do much in the playoff picture.

    I attend many warriors games, including tonights. Let me know when you see this team beat a winning team. Same story every year.

    8th seed or out this year. West is down but not that down.

    So much improved from earlier in the season. They were unwatchable at times but have been much better.

    Yuck. Don't remind us the SF Giants won... :P It's too bad GS doesn't play in the East, they'd get in but not in the Western Conference. I'd give the edge to POR for the 8th seed. I think MEM is a better team, but POR has a better record.

    There's ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE THEY MAKE THE PLAYOFFS.

    You'd probably need something around 48 wins to make the playoffs in the West this year.

    Warriors 18-23 with 41 games left, they would have to win at a 70ish% rate all the way to get in.

    Like I said, NO CHANCE.

    Maybe if they were in the East. Hell, Indiana is currently playoff bound and they are 16-23.

    If somebody in the NBA has a worse bench than GS...I haven't seen it? I will say I'm always very impressed by the Golden State crowd...you would think they're a team with a very good record and recent history in the playoffs? My home state of Indiana has always been a basketball state but steady losing has killed the enthusiasm! The Warriors lose more than we do & their place is always packed and loud?

    ELLIS is a beast hands down. They just need Curry to return to the form he had last year.
