The Golden State Warriors are the most improved team from last season.
Last year, the Warriors finished third-from-last in the Western Conference with a 23-43 record.
This season, Golden State is in fifth place with a 28-17 record.
The Warriors are in the top 10 in the NBA with points (eighth in the league), rebounds (fourth) and assists (seventh) per game. Golden State has a really talented squad that has been playing well.
Guard Stephen Curry has been a crucial player to this team's success. Forward David Lee is averaging a double-double, with 19.6 points (12th in the league) and 10.9 rebounds (tied for sixth) per game.
If the Warriors want to make a run in the playoffs, then they need to play better defense. Golden State allows 99.6 points per game, which is 21st in the NBA.
