Golden State Warriors 2013 Season
It's the world turned upside down. Traditional Western powers like the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns are struggling for success, while longtime cellar-dwellers like the Golden State Warriors are reaching out for success and winning traditions, and so far, the Warriors are doing it mostly right. Even though they're currently in the midst of a losing streak, the Warriors are hanging in there in the thick of the playoff chase; they’re getting the job done; sandwiched in between their division rivals in Los Angeles, even though they have a barely negative difference in points per game scored vs. points per game allowed
Point guard Stephen Curry is not only getting the ball to his teammates — leading the team in assists per game — but he is also leading in scoring as well. Forward David Lee and shooting guard Klay Thompson are also valuable contributors to the Warrior cause, along with Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli. Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry provide valuable minutes off the bench when the situation warrants. Fiery coach Mark Jackson — a former NBA all-star point guard himself — needs to get his players working harder to improve their scoring defense if the Warriors are to have any postseason success at Oracle Arena this year.
