Ranking Author Rank Comment Marc Stein 10 (+1) The Dubs are the only Western Conference team that can claim road wins over both Indiana and Miami. The Dubs have won 14 of their last 19 away dates. The Dubs play 11 of their final 18 games at home and need to start seeing the Road Warriors show up in Oakland with greater frequency. Marc Spears 7 (+1) All-Star guard Stephen Curry has been dealing with a right quad injury. Steve Blake has provided quality help.
CBS Sports Matt Moore 7 (+5) Golden State is gaining confidence, but we would feel better if they weren't so reliant on Jermaine O'Neal's health. But the panic button is off.
Pro Basketball Talk Kurt Helin 8 (+2) Of the four teams fighting for one of the final playoff spots in the West they are in the best position Ñ the softest schedule and the most home games. When their jumpers fall they can beat anyone, as they did with the Pacers (10-of-20 from three), when they donÕt they can fall to anyone. John Schuhmann 5 (+6) The Warriors have gone 9-2 since the All-Star break (4-2 against teams currently over .500) to keep themselves out of that scrum for the final two playoff spots. They have the second easiest remaining schedule in the West, playing a home-heavy March (Sunday's game in Portland is their only one outside California over a 26-day stretch). But their top-five defense faces three top-five offenses this week. David Aldridge 7 (+2) Have Warriors finally found the consistency of production that they've lacked all season?
SB Nation Jason Patt 6 (+5) The Warriors are riding a four-game winning streak, including an impressive win on the road in Indiana. Klay Thompson played hero in the thrilling win:
Sheridan Hoops Andrew Kamenetsky 8 (-) Charging hard behind a top shelf defense. 97.6 points per 100 trips over the last month, second only to the Bulls. Helps explain a 9-2 run, and a shot at a five seed. Matt Dollinger 7 (+1) The Warriors have won four consecutive games and nine of 11 to solidify their playoff position. They held three of four opponents below 100 points last week, improving to 30-4 in such games.
USA Today 7 (+1) With their bench taking form thanks largely to Steve Blake, the year-away tag might be premature.
