Why can't the Warriors score in close games?

For a team that is on pace to have the most efficient offense in modern NBA history, the Golden State Warriors transform from a fear-inducing juggernaut into an entirely mediocre outfit when it matters the most.

If you think that's harsh, it's merely an echo of Draymond Green's assessment, which he candidly shared following the Golden State's stunning collapse Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

"Our fourth-quarter offense has been atrocious, and I don't know if you could see," he said. "Everyone only notices in losses, but I actually pay attention to things when we win also."

So, why can't the most dangerous offense we've ever seen finish games? Let's take a look.
