The Warriors are a deep team. Probably the deepest team in the NBA and definitely the deepest team left in the playoffs. With Klay Thompson and Draymond Green starting alongside Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala coming off the bench, most teams don’t even approach the depth of Golden State.
But don’t let the Warriors’ deep lineup fool you. Golden State will only go as far as Chef Curry takes them. That’s why it was such a scare when he took this hard fall in Game 4.
That’s also the reason why it came as such a relief when it was announced that Curry is good to go for Game 5 against the Rockets.
Steph Curry, with a shooting sleeve with elbow pad on right arm, says he's sore from the fall but "good to go," will "play normal minutes."

James Harden may be stirring up the pot this series, but Chef Curry’s been cooking up something fierce. He’s averaging 32.5 points against the Rockets on 56 percent shooting from the field. But the most ridiculous stat is that he’s 24-of-44 from deep. Some players on the Rockets — Dwight Howard — don’t even shoot free throws that well.
