An inconsistent offense has become more of the norm for the Golden State Warriors

Over the past 25 games, the Golden State Warriors have dropped to a below-average offense. Before this recent skid, the team was sporting a top 10 offense for the majority of the season. And while most of those games were played without Draymond Green, this recent slump on that end of the floor is still highly concerning.

Even though the Warriors have one of the league’s best defenses, if they’re going to beat a team like the Phoenix Suns in a playoff series, they’re going to need capable offense. And, quite frankly, an average offense probably won’t be good enough. Not this year.

If the Warriors can’t solve their offensive issues, they could have a huge awakening early in their playoff run. Hopefully getting healthy solves their issues on that end of the floor, but I’m not sure that’s a foregone conclusion.
