Even though Stephen Curry is having one of the most productive and productive seasons of his 14-year NBA career, the Warriors do not appear to be prepared to contend in the Playoffs if they were to begin today.
The 9-time All-Star recently outscored the Clippers by 50 points in a single game, and to make matters even crazier, he converted 20 of his 28 shots. The Warriors nevertheless fell short 134–126.
Because of this, several experts predict that the Dubs’ season won’t be as successful as in previous years.
Stephen Curry Can T Carry the Warriors According to Nick Wright
Fox Sports analyst Nick Wright believes Stephen Curry will not be able to carry the Warriors this season and tried proving it by bringing up a statistic of all The Chef s 40+ point nights of his career.
The Warriors have won 62 of those games, going 48-8 in his first 13 seasons and 3-3 this year.
This makes it abundantly evident that if the Warriors want to have a chance at the championship, Andrew Wiggins must return to the starting lineup. If not, they might be eliminated in the first round.
And if they don’t end the regular season strongly, they might not make the playoffs given how suddenly stacked the West is following the February transfer deadline.

Will the Warriors Be a Threat when Wiggins Is Back?
Wiggins is now sidelined indefinitely, but if he returns, along with Gary Payton II, who is scheduled to return later this month, the Dubs’ defense will be at least two times stronger than it is right now.
But if the former Timberwolves forward has to see the season out, the chances of the Warriors getting past the first round would be lower than any of the other top-8 teams in the West.
