  1. Warriors break game open in the 3rd, hold on late to clinch series over Nuggets

    May 3, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    There will be no game 7. The Warriors did what many, including me, thought they could not do before this series started. By holding on to beat the Nuggets 92-88 in game 6, they clinched the series and head to the 2nd round where they’ll face the San Antonio Spurs for the right to advance…

  2. Report: David Lee cleared to play for Warriors in game 6

    May 2, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    So much for that torn hip flexor ending David Lee‘s season. In a stunning development, Lee has been cleared to play in game 6 for the Warriors according to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports. Lee has missed the last four games of the series after he left game 1 early in the 4th quarter after injuring…

  3. Warriors look to close out the Nuggets, but is their focus on the right things?

    May 2, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    The Warriors look to be in a perfect position. They have the series lead over the Nuggets at 3 games to 2. They’re heading home to Oracle Arena to play a close out game where the fans will create an environment that’s rarely seen in pro sports. They have the best player in the series…

  4. Nuggets find their game, hold off the Warriors to take game 5

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala drives past Golden State Warriors' Curry during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    The Nuggets finally looked like themselves this series, and not a moment too soon. By beating the Warriors 107-100, the Nuggets not only staved off elimination, but grabbed some momentum in the process. Nearly every Nugget win this season saw the same trends develop and this game was no different. Denver scored 50 points in…

  5. Facing Elimination, Nuggets need to pull out all the stops against Warriors

    Apr 30, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    George Karl, Andre Iguodala

    Few people expected we’d be at this point this soon, if they even thought we’d be here at all. The Nuggets are facing elimination in the fifth game of their series versus the Warriors — a series many had them winning at the outset, with even more jumping on the bandwagon after David Lee was…

  6. Nuggets need to make defensive adjustments to even it up against the Warriors

    Apr 28, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    The Warriors have momentum on their side. They have won two straight games, are finding ways to hit the key shots that turn the tide of the game, and nearly every adjustment head coach Mark Jackson has made has worked out in their favor. The Nuggets, meanwhile, are still searching for something sustainable that works.…

  7. Nuggets need to get back to basics to beat the Warriors in crucial game 3

    Apr 26, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Even though the series is tied at one game a piece, the Nuggets have been thoroughly outplayed by the Warriors in the first two games. Golden State has had the better game plan and has made the better adjustments. The Nuggets, meanwhile, have been very good in some areas but not able to play their…

  8. Stephen Curry a “game time decision” for Game 3 versus Nuggets

    Apr 26, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Stephen Curry returned to the game after spraining his ankle, helping to lead his Warriors to a win over the Nuggets that evened the series at one game a piece. Right after the injury he was seen on the bench using a giant rubber band to keep his ankle loose enough for him to be…

  9. Warriors go on the offensive, dominate Nuggets to even the series

    Apr 24, 2013, 2:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    The Warriors had a lot of questions surrounding them heading into this game. How would they adjust to playing without David Lee? Who would start in his place? Would Stephen Curry find his offense? Would anyone else step up? In order, they answered those accordingly: not much, Jarrett Jack, YES, and YES. The Warriors put…

  10. With David Lee out, Stephen Curry becomes even more important in Game 2

    Apr 23, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    The playoffs are all about adjustments, but even though the Warriors find themselves down 1-0 to the Nuggets they really don’t have to change too much heading into this all important game two. Missing David Lee certainly hurts. When looking at the match ups in this series, he was one player who clearly had an…

  11. Nuggets, Andre Miller use second half surge to defeat Warriors

    Apr 20, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    Game one proved to be the perfect example of why this series has a chance to be the best of the first round match ups. Both teams dueled down the stretch with some fantastic shot making, but it was Andre Miller’s lay up in the final seconds that lifted the Nuggets to a 97-95 win…

  12. David Lee leaves game 1 with “probable right hip flexor strain”

    Apr 20, 2013, 8:27 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Kosta Koufos defends Golden State Warriors David Lee in the third quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    The first playoff game of David Lee‘s career didn’t exactly finish the way he would have hoped. When driving to the rim in the early part of the 4th quarter, Lee drew a foul and when landing instantly grabbed his right quadricep area. Early reports are that he has a right hip injury: INJURY UPDATE:…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: Give me your Point Guards

    Apr 16, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    I’m a sucker for point guards. The guys who can balance scoring and dishing; who can control the game’s flow like they do the ball in their hands. Tonight there were several worthy performances of making out list, including fantastic nights from Kevin Durant, Luis Scola, Gerald Henderson, and Greg Monroe. But, tonight, I’m going…

    Bryant passes against Claver and Pavlovic during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    How Kobe Bryant functions within the structure of the Lakers’ offense will always be a hot-button topic. Even when the Lakers win the game. Last night Kobe was brilliant in the Lakers’ win over the Trailblazers, a win that kept the team in control of their own destiny to the playoffs. His 47 point, 8…

    Mar 21, 2013, 1:45 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Anthony Davis has had an up and down rookie season. Injuries — an early season concussion and later a sprained ankle — have kept him out of games entirely. When he has been healthy, he’s found himself on the bench in crunch time of close games as head coach Monty Williams has decided to play…

  17. Pacers’ Hill not happy with lack of fan support in game versus the Lakers

    Mar 16, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    George Hill

    In every sport, there are teams that are so popular they have fans all over the country. The Pittsburgh Steelers are like that in the NFL. In major league baseball it’s the Yankees and Redsox. And in the NBA, the Lakers definitely fit that description. So, when the Lakers visited the Indiana Pacers on Friday…

    It wasn’t a very competitive night of NBA games with blowouts littering scoreboards all across the league. But many of those games wouldn’t have seen the wide margins they did if it weren’t for some fantastic performances from guys who really went above and beyond what they’d normally provide on any given night. Without further…

    The Lakers’ win over the Bulls on Sunday was a real workmanlike effort that showed improved dedication on the defensive side of the ball and growing chemistry.

  20. Lakers make improbable comeback, survive the Hornets

    Mar 7, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    The Lakers entered the 4th quarter against the Hornets trailing by 18 points, 93-75. Up to that point in the game there was little reason to think that anything but a disappointing loss for the Lakers was on tap. Sure, they were on the 2nd night of a back to back and were coming off…

    Mar 5, 2013, 1:32 AM EDT

    jennings-ellis

    In today’s NBA — the NBA where the hand check and physical perimeter defense has gone the way of the dinosaur — there are few things more dangerous than attack guards who get on a roll. The rules simply favor them and once they find their rhythm, they can become unstoppable. Such was the case…

    There is a palpable frustration surrounding the Philadelphia 76ers. Whether you’re a fan watching at home, a season ticket holder, the head coach, or an executive in the front office, the odds are that you are not happy with the way this season has progressed. They have lost eight of their last 10 games, are…

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    No one really remembers the numbers guys get in losing efforts. Those numbers usually seem hollow; they come off as not worthy of mention. Tonight, though, we honor those guys who put up big numbers in a losing effort. Because as those guys showed out and did their best to help their team win, they…

    The Celtics have been hit hard with the injury bug lately, losing both Rajon Rondo and Leandro Barbosa for the season to knee injuries. It’s the latter injury, to Barbosa, that has the Celtics exploring their options on the wing, looking for a swingman who could soak up some minutes. It seems the player they’re…
