20.Golden State Warriors (13-17) The Warriors' have the makings of a phenomenal team. Center Ekpe Udoh and guard Stephen Curry are their most fundamentally sound players. During the 217 minutes they've played together, Golden State is plus-20.2 points per 36 minutes. And if you add Brandon Rush, Monta Ellis and David Lee to that duo, they have thrashed opponents 111 to 64 during the nearly 44 minutes they have played together. The problem is the lack of joint playing time. Udoh is averaging only 20.1 minutes a game (although that number is steadily climbing) and Curry has been beset by injuries most of the season. By the way, the above-mentioned quintet are all signed through at least the end of next season with the exception of Rush, who can be secured for the $4.1 million qualifying offer.
