I’m thinking the Denver Nuggets have two losses left in them, so the Warriors need to go 4-1 to make the playoffs. That looks feasible based on the schedule.
Of the Warriors five remaining games, four are at home (Sacramento, Denver, Los Angeles Clippers, Seattle).
There was a time that you could guarantee four victories left for the Ws. The league’s elite couldn’t win at Oracle. The Kings, Nuggets, league’s scrubs didn’t stand a chance.
At this point last season, the Kings, Clippers and Sonics — three of the remaining visitors — would’ve have stood a chance at the Oracle. Now, it’s hard to say. After home losses to Minnesota, Chicago and Atlanta, and near losses to visiting New Jersey, New York and Indiana, how confident are you the Warriors will get it done? Or will they slip up and suffer one last potentially fatal missed opportunity?
