13. Golden State Warriors
Roughly a week ago, when it was announced that James Wiseman could be out for the remainder of the season, there were whispers that the Golden State Warriors would likely miss the playoffs and that they should potentially rest some other veteran players and hit somewhat of a soft tank mode.
However, over the past week and a half, the Warriors are playing some of the best basketball of the season. Stephen Curry has gone absolutely bonkers and is reminding the rest of the NBA just how good he is and that he still one of the best players in the world.
Golden State is in a position to make a real push for the playoffs and could end up in the eight seed match up against the Utah jazz. Are you willing to bet against Curry in a seven-game series against the Jazz?
