Through five games, the Golden State Warriors are tied for the top spot in the Western Conference.

After splitting an opening back-to-back against the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the Dubs have reeled off three straight convincing wins.

Beating the Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves does not make a team elite. But, Sacramento beat up the Warriors last season while Philadelphia was 3-0 after, having beaten the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls. Minnesota is healthy, and they are a 45-50 win team if healthy.

The point is, Golden State has been impressive, as have most of its players.

Having said that, not everyone is contributing as expected. And while most of the team is playing well, there are a select few who are playing better than well.
