For the Warriors, positions mean so little on defense because they've built a roster comprised of guys the same size. The players and coaches call it "versatility," a common set of qualities that allows the team to constantly switch on and off the ball. With Iguodala, Livingston, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes and Justin Holiday, Golden State has a half-dozen long, defensively talented players who stand between 6-foot-6 and 6-foot-8. That height range is perfect for navigating between marking little guys and grappling with big men. For example, Green typically guards power forwards, but he can stop Chris Paul in a pinch.

But while with Idaho in the D League in 2012-13, Holiday caught the fancy of Warriors assistant general manager Kirk Lacob, and along with fellow assistant G.M. Travis Schlenk, they continued to keep tabs on his progress. Lacob and Schlenk convinced general manager Bob Myers that Holiday might be a good summer league invite, and the rest is history. "Kirk, who was our D League G.M. (in Santa Cruz), had always liked him," said Myers. "Justin put in some really good time in the D League, and we were excited to get him in the summer league. Then he was very good there. Finally, in camp, he showed up really early. Most of the guys play pick-up in September, and he just continued to elevate himself." San Jose Mercury-News

The reinvigorated Warriors bench combined for 62 points and was led by Justin Holiday's career-high 18 points. Iguodala and Marreese Speights added 12 points apiece as the Warriors led by as many as 25 points in the game. "It's a problem to deal with on the defensive end for the other team," Curry said. "You're going to have to be aware of 12 different guys that can come out there and play against you and even beat you." Oakland Tribune
