The Golden State warriors have been playing some great basketball since the postseason started. They have been sharing the ball well, and no team has been able to stop them, not even the LeBron James-led Cavaliers. The Warriors haven't lost a game this postseason, so, could we see them go a perfect 16-0 in the playoffs? They are very close to this goal, as they are 14-0 currently, holding a 2-0 edge over the Cleveland Cavs with Game 3 shifting to Cleveland.

The Warriors look like the best team anyone has seen in a while, so this feat isn't as far-fetched as some may think. If they do manage to go 16-0 in the playoffs, will they go down as the best team in the history of the NBA?

Nobody is safe

The Warriors have shown no mercy this postseason. The Warriors have easily handled every opponent they have faced since the playoffs started, blowing them out in the majority of their games this postseason.

The average point differential of their wins is almost 17 points per game. The Warriors have been causing opposing offenses headaches with their defense, as they cause turnovers, which feeds into their transition offense -- something they thrive on.

Their offense is fast-paced, as many teams fail to keep up and ultimately end up tired and gassed when the third quarter ends. LeBron James was the latest victim of the Warriors' offense, as he looked tired when he came out in the third quarter of Game 2. Golden State has been firing on all cylinders, leaving their opponents catching their breath and scratching their heads.

Don't look too far ahead

The Warriors are closing in, and getting closer to obtaining that perfect record, but as close as it may seem, one shouldn't look too far ahead. The Warriors still have to play the Cavs in Cleveland for the next two games, and that is no easy feat. The last time the Warriors played the Cavs in Cleveland Kyrie Irving made a game-winning bucket on Christmas day. Also, the Cavs have the best player in the world in LeBron James on their roster.

James has been playing great playoff basketball and the Warriors haven't found a way to slow him down, as he is averaging a triple-double in the series.

Kevin Love has found his shooting stroke, dropping 27 in Game 2, and Kyrie Irving is continuing his impressive play in the playoffs as well. Let's not forget that history repeats itself. The Warriors were up 2-0 on the Cavs last year, and we all know how that ended.
