The 2022 NBA Playoffs are approaching, and the Golden State Warriors find themselves in good shape, holding a solid position at third place in the Western Conference.
With six games left in the regular season for the Warriors, they have a chance to climb up to second place, but that would require the Memphis Grizzlies to collect a bunch of losses in the remaining regular-season games.
So far, the Warriors have accumulated a 48-28 record (.632) but are on a three-game losing streak. If they don’t rack up a few more wins within the next six games, they could fall down the standings as the Mavericks, Jazz, Nuggets and Timberwolves are all narrowly behind them.
The 2022 playoff standings are clearly up for grabs, but here is everything you need to know about the Golden State Warriors:
