Sea Dubs on 4-game win streak

After losing to the Reno Bighorns, the Santa Cruz Warriors have won four consecutive games, defeating the Oklahoma City Blue, Sioux Falls Skyforce and the Austin Spurs. Three out of those four games have been on the road, and the Sea Dubs will look to extend their streak to five when they visit the Spurs again on Sunday.

The Warriors have exceeded all expectations through the first 15 games of the season, averaging 116.5 points, 46.5 rebounds, 27.3 assists and 6.7 blocks on shooting splits of 51.6/40.0/80.5.

Among all G League teams, they rank fifth in points, third in rebounds, first in assists, second in blocks first in field goal percentage, third in 3-point field goal percentage and third in free throw percentage.

In addition, the Sea Dubs rank first in plus-minus (+10.3), net rating (10.8) and eighth in opponents’ points per game (106.2).

While the fact of the matter is that the Warriors only have the third best regular season record in the league (10-5), I certainly think the team is in the conversation of which G League team is the best in the Western Conference.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see them top the Western Conference by the end of the regular season and possibly bring Santa Cruz its second championship trophy.
