This Golden State Warriors season has been mired with inconsistency, but Andrew Wiggins has been one of the bright spots of the season. Andrew Wiggins is having career highs efficiency-wise, shooting 47.6% from the field and 37.7% from beyond the arc. He is also averaging almost 19 PPG and playing stellar perimeter defense.
Despite their up and down season, the Golden State Warriors have recently won four games straight, two of them coming against the Utah Jazz and the Phoenix Suns, two teams who are at the top of the Western Conference. While regular-season wins are not always indicative of how a team will perform come playoff time, it definitely looks like the Golden State Warriors could give some trouble to a potential first-round matchup.
Andrew Wiggins has commented on the Golden State Warriors' recent win streak and has claimed that they are an entirely different team than they were at the start of the season. That came after his 38 point eruption against the Phoenix Suns, and it seems as though the Warriors' second scoring option believes in this iteration of the team.
In terms of defensive rating, the Golden State Warriors are top 5 in the league. Their defense has been stellar all season, and while the offense has stagnated at times, their defense has been their calling card all season. The Golden State Warriors are an underrated team due to their position in the standings, but they are still dangerous to any contender due to their Stephen Curry. If the supporting cast continues to be consistent like they were during the win streak, then the Warriors will be a menace come playoff time.
