The Golden State Warriors have a long-standing history of small-ball lineups.
During the first championship run of their dynastic era, their small lineup was so lethal it was dubbed the "death lineup."
It has gone through a few different renditions since then, but as the Warriors embark
on their first playoff run in three years, it appears they have the newest version.
Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins played
just five minutes together in Game 1 of their first-round series against the Denver Nuggets,
but in those minutes, they outscored the Nuggets by 14 points.
And it was those five minutes that shifted the momentum to the Warriors going into halftime of their eventual 123-107 win on Saturday night.
"It's a scary sight when we really get going," Thompson said. "This is really only our first time really playing together."

Said Poole of the lineup: "It's pretty lethal."
