Warriors in great position as NBA season starts to wind down
The Golden State Warriors are enjoying a fantastic season and have their eye on the 2015 NBA championship. And it's a realistic goal. Here's CSN Bay Area reporting:
The Warriors want nothing more from this regular season than to remain atop the Western Conference and own home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.
With 19 games remaining and a seven-game lead over the second-place Memphis Grizzlies, there is almost no chance the Warriors will tumble from their perch.
Which is why the decision by Warriors coach Steve Kerr to sit four of his top six players Friday night at Denver is, under the circumstances, entirely rational and absolutely simple – and is going to happen a few more times before the regular season ends April 15.
Insofar as Kerr occasionally mentions finding rest for center Andrew Bogut and reserve forward Andre Iguodala, I asked the coach this week if that would apply to the current stretch, in which the Warriors play five games in seven nights.
"Yeah, and maybe beyond that," he said.
