The 2012-13 Warriors are 5-5 through 10 games. While a .500 record will not get the Warriors into the postseason, they've played six on the road and more than their share against the West's elite teams. Ten games is not worth reading too far into anyway, but if we're going to read into them, the Warriors appear to be more or less on track.
Golden State has not only lived up to expectations but been slightly impressive considering that they lost their best player in Monta Ellis and have been mostly without their new best player in Andrew Bogut.
The Warriors' relative success has been due to several new faces stepping up. For the team to break above .500 and become the Western Conference power they have the potential to be, others will need to up the ante.
I will grade the early-season performances of each Warriors player who plays significant minutes in this article. All stats used in this article were accurate as of Nov. 18 and are courtesy of NBA.com. Every player has appeared in all 10 games except where otherwise noted.
