The Golden State Warriors have fixed a lot of their biggest issues from past seasons and made the playoffs as a result. However, this team has struggled to the finish line as its remaining weaknesses have been exposed.
The Warriors have improved in a variety of statistical categories this season, namely rebounding and defensive field-goal percentage, but they still have problem areas. They are not a complete team yet as evidenced by their play in a home loss to the title-contending Oklahoma City Thunder.
The playoffs will be the first true litmus test of how far this team can advance with its current roster. How the Warriors perform in the postseason will allow management to get a better read on where this team is going into the offseason, when it can make the appropriate adjustments.
