SI.com Power Rankings: Warriors at 10

45

10. Golden State Warriors "Who would have guessed that running set plays that methodically maneuver for good shots and trying to defend in the half-court with tall players down near the basket could actually win games? Don Nelson's replacement, the aptly named Keith Smart, has figured this out. In three ugly losses to Utah last season, the Warriors were outrebounded by an average of 55.3-39.3 and yielded 110.3 points. In Friday's game against the Jazz, the Warriors were plus-6 on the boards and grinded out an 85-78 victory in which neither team shot 40 percent. Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry are a potent backcourt when healthy (and they've already been dinged up), but it is the revamped front line of Andris Biedrins, David Lee and (the most pleasant surprise) Dorell Wright that has the Warriors moving up in the standings."
