I know man, but here's why.
For starters, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. They obviously are in an entirely different stratosphere in comparison to the rest of the league.
Interconference matchups increase ten fold during the 2nd half of the season. By NO Means am I trying to knock the Dubs, but they've played OKC once, SAS once, and LAC twice within the first week or so of the season. And of those games, only one was on the road. The thinking, is that it'll be significantly tougher to be that good down the stretch this year. They've got the 3rd strongest strength of schedule remaining in the league, and they've got to go on the road against LAC, OKC multiple times, and SAS multiple times. I think they play LAC 2x, OKC 2x, and SAS 3x. All those games could go either way. And that's not counting a random loss here and there.
The hot take is that they won't do it. The real take is that they obviously can do it, but it's going to be incredibly tough. They are elite though, so they could do it, but I'm betting against it.
