On the heels of a reassuring annihilation of the rival-Lakers, Warriors fans are breathing a sigh of relief. Steph Curry's ankle is okay. Andrew Bogut is rounding into form, blocking shots, moving more fluidly and creating shots with his deft passing. Klay Thompson is back in the groove on his corner three-pointers. Can Jarrett Jack regain his early-season mojo? Things are falling back into place for the Warriors.
Meanwhile, Golden State and the Houston Rockets are battling for the Western Conference #6 seed. Both have 31 losses as of today (Tuesday, 3/26). Fortunately, the Warriors finish with 7 of 10 at Oracle Arena, with only 3 more games against +.500 teams, while the Rockets have 6 at home and 6 on the road, with 6 more games against +.500 teams.
Darko Index Prediction: With the home cooking, Golden State finishes 48-34, while Houston ends the season at 47-35. Why does it matter? Nobody wants to face #2 seed Oklahoma City, or top seed San Antonio. The Los Angeles Clippers sit at #3, with a 1-game edge on the red-hot Denver Nuggets. Golden State fans would love to see the Warriors match-up with their Pacific-rivals, the Clippers, and the Darko Index would love to watch Steph Curry battle Chris Paul for seven grueling games. Let's the Oracle Roar like it's 2007 all over again.
