The Golden State Warriors play a unique, and, frankly, amazing, game.
They’re known for their explosive offense and defensive prowess, and they have a talented team that’s been playing at an elite level for decades.
This year, though, the Warriors have played a more conservative, back-and-forth style, and their win total has dropped from 51.4 points per game to 46.5.
While this was expected, the team’s record-breaking offense, which had been an integral part of their success in recent years, has now dropped off a cliff.
The big story of the last few weeks has been how the Warriors’ record dropped.
They’ve only scored 47.8 points per contest, which is well below their season average of 53.5, but that’s because of a number of things.
First, they’re playing a game in which they’re averaging only 12.5 assists per game, down from a season high of 14.3 assists per contest.
That means they’re allowing more turnovers (3.6 per game) than they did in their previous three seasons (4.0 per game), and their opponents have a 51.5% field goal percentage, which isn’t exactly good, considering the Warriors were second in the NBA in field goal shooting percentage in 2016-17.
That also means the Warriors are allowing more points per 100 possessions (14.6 points per100) than the average team in the league.
This is a team that averaged a league-leading 19.4 assists per 100 minutes last year, and that was before the arrival of Draymond Green.
Green, along with Andrew Bogut, are among the best passers in the game.
The Warriors have had one of the best backcourts in the sport, with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson as well as Klay, Klay and Kylo Renner.
So, while they may have a weak frontcourt, the frontcourt of Draysmond Green, Harrison Barnes and Harrison Barnes are the best the league has ever seen.
On the defensive end, they’ve also improved on last year’s defensive rating, which was tied for 30th in the entire league.
They are currently allowing 101.4 defensive points per 48 minutes of play, which would be the fifth-best defensive rating in the history of the league, behind only the 1998-99 Philadelphia 76ers, 1997-98 Dallas Mavericks and 2000-01 Philadelphia 76er.
There’s a lot of room to improve, but it’s still not a bad team.
The problem is, it won’t be a good team in 2021-22.
In the Warriors last three seasons, they have played in the Western Conference Finals twice, lost to the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs, and lost to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round.
This is the year, if they can stay healthy, that they can be a playoff team, which they can do if they’re smart.
But even with their new core, it still feels like a lot will depend on how the rest of the team plays.
After watching the Warriors play the last couple of games, I don’t think they have an answer for everything.
They have to figure out a way to keep up with a league that’s built on speed and athleticism, and a style that relies on ball movement, so they can’t just play the fast-paced game the way they did last year. I don
