Golden State Warriors: Updated Playoff Scenarios

There are only twelve days left in the Golden State Warriors’ regular season schedule. And with six games left on the schedule, the Dubs still have plenty of work left to do just to ensure their spot in the postseason.

The Warriors currently sit two games up on the eight seed Memphis Grizzlies who are tied with the youthful Suns. They are a game and a half up on the Dallas Mavericks, and after a monumental 122-20 overtime win over Dallas earlier this week, have the tiebreaker over the Mavs.

If season ended today, then the Warriors would take on their division rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers. The Dubs and Clippers split their four-game season series with each team winning both games at home. The Warriors and Clippers have plenty of bad blood and would surely play a physical series.

The Dubs are also only 1.5  games back of the upstart Portland Trail Blazers who have cooled off after their sizzling hot start. The Warriors play the Blazers on Sunday, April 13 in Portland in what will be an important game in terms of playoff seeding.

The fourth seed in the Western Conference is the Houston Rockets. The Rockets have been one of the best teams since New Year’s Day and have surprisingly good defense for a team that plays at such a high tempo. The Dubs are 1-2 against the Rockets, having won and lost games at home.

The Warriors are having their best season record-wise since the Chris Webber era, and yet are only going to end up with a bottom four seed, if they don’t self-combust.

Briefly: The Warriors are currently looking for new assistant coaches with the only job requirements being whether or not Mark Jackson likes you. Assistant coach Darren Erman became the second Warriors assistant in the past two weeks to lose his job for what the team called, “a violation of company policy.”
