Teams have adjusted to the Warriors transition game this year and have learned to slow things down to a glacial pace in the 4th Quarter through grinding low post play. David Lee will continue to get exposed and without Ezeli, Bogut's foul trouble will continue to be a problem. Small ball will not work because teams have realized how to expose one on one matchups. Kwame Brown is a known commodity. Physical defender who can rebound within his area. Bring him on a few 10 days and see what happens.
Ezeli is a huge loss and O'Neal coming back is only a partial solution.
