Six Good Teams Flying Under The Radar.

12

I can't believe Hollinger is giving us dabs. Copy and pasted for those who don't have insider. Golden State The Warriors are 15-22, but they've also played just 15 home games -- the league's fewest -- and 22 road games. Given the considerable advantage they enjoy in Oakland, that should give them a big boost in the second half of the season. As should the fact they're healthy for the first time in eons. David Lee was playing hurt when he played at all in the first half of the season, and Louis Amundson, Stephen Curry and Andris Biedrins also missed time. Golden State should put up slightly more defensive resistance now that the frontcourt is intact and, as a result, is capable of playing .500 ball or better the rest of the way. In fact, you'll be surprised to note the Playoff Odds see the Warriors with a 14.4 percent chance of making the postseason, giving them better odds than rapidly fading Phoenix and roughly the same chance as Houston. It's unlikely the Warriors will surge quite that strongly, even if Denver takes itself out of the picture … but the fact we're even having this discussion is a welcome change after the team made a laughingstock of itself the previous two seasons.
