BOSTON — If you were to caricature the Golden State Warriors at their worst, their weakest, their most vulnerable, their most unstable, it might look like this.

Like Stephen Curry, who kicked the ball three times in 82 seconds to open the fourth quarter.

Like Draymond Green, chewing up a referee for several minutes after committing a foul later in the period.

As a team that is easily intimidated on the boards (a 47-31 margin) and in the paint (a 52-26 point margin) and on second chance points (22-11).
