After a 124-117 overtime loss to the Timberwolves, the Golden State Warriors have lost two out of their last three, and looked rough getting there. They turned the ball over a season-high 24 times, saw Minnesota attempt 28 more free throws, and allowed the T-Wolves enough open looks that they shot at Warrior-like rates. Seventy-three wins now requires perfection, and perfection feels like more of a challenge than it has all season. What’s wrong with the Warriors?!
Nah. This is not that column. That would be a very dumb column. (That column will probably be on Foxsports.com shortly.) The Warriors are fine—they are the best team in basketball. They are getting healthy, getting their depth back, and walking the very fine line of rounding into playoff mode while still trying to win games, because the second-best team in basketball is having a historically great season of its own.
