With 19 games left in the season, the Warriors are 20-27, five games behind the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

If they were in the Eastern Conference, the Warriors would be just three games behind the Knicks for the No.8 seed, with two games in hand.

Should the club shut down Stephen Curry for the remainder of the season, and hope he can get to full strength before next season?

Are the Chicago Bulls the favorite to reach the NBA Finals out of the East?
