The speed and shooting is just too good having Curry, Klay, AI, DGreen and Lee out there together and the defense is good also. With Lee, the pick and roll is his bread and butter and because of his niftiness he can score well with either hand. I like what Lee brings offensively, but it has to take to his strengths, not post ups against DJordan which obviously doesn't work in his favour.
The team has shown they can beat the Clips and step up. We are far better defensively and if the shots start to fall well, we will win rather easily.
I agree with 80% of what you have posted!
Sit Lee down and replace him with Barnes and then this Warrior team can go to a real small ball lineup that can "out-quick" the Clippers! Again, it is not about Lee's talent; it is about his lack of commitment to playing defense that is inexcusable. A defender can never let his man beat him down the court in a transition situation; yet, Lee does this no matter who he is guarding (Griffin, DJordan, etc.)!
