except that we don't hold our opponents to a low fg%. We're #20 in the league in fg% allowed and #24 in the league in adj fg% allowed. And steals and blocks are partially amplified because of more possessions.
Exactly... our defense is bad no matter how you look at it. It's mainly based on forcing turnovers. We have a more than decent offense... and there's a reason we're still below .500
Right... the reason is because we can't win away from home. If the Warriors played half as well on the road as they did in the Oracle, they'd be 10 games over .500...
yes, but if they played even average defense they'd be ten games above .500 as well
