The Warriors need Andrew Bogut if they are going to get out of the first round. They outscore teams by 8 points per 100 possessions when he is on the court — he anchors their defense, which is a little better with him playing, but his presence in the paint also helps their offensive spacing…

The Warriors and Clippers don’t like each other, but it seems the Warriors particularly dislike Blake Griffin. Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut went after Griffin in December, and they successfully got the Clippers star ejected. Bogut even made a point not to apologize. Add Jermaine O’Neal to the list of Warriors who’ve feuded with Griffin.…

BOSTON – Game-planning for the Golden State last season, the Phoenix Suns wrote “Finesse” on their whiteboard. “Be physical with them, and they tend to back away,” said Jermaine O’Neal, who played for Phoenix last year. Now a Warrior, O’Neal didn’t hesitate to share the observation of their defense with his new teammates. “I told…

This showdown of teams with dreams of getting past the first round of the playoffs was shaping up for an exciting ending. For three and a half quarters the teams had traded runs, made some big shots and both sides played some defense. The Warriors had been up 5 with just under 9 minutes left,…

We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear: The organization’s goal for this season was a top four seed in the West and home court in the first round of the playoffs. At 31-21, the Warriors are the six seed currently but are closer to Memphis in the nine seed out of the playoffs (2.5…

In case you missed it, we had to bring you this. Marreese Speights got more minutes because Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O’Neal out — that is how you take advantage. He had 17 second quarter points on his way to 32 points for the game on 12-of-15 shooting. What was amazing was how he was…

Mark Jackson is mad at the media. Andrew Bogut was mad at Jackson. And the media is probably mad at the pregame food spread. Bogut has missed the Warriors’ last three games, and before the third game, Jackson discussed the injury. Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury News: Jackson said before the game he…

When an All-Star replacement needed to be named for the injured Kobe Bryant, there was no way the league was going to pass up the opportunity to have the host city’s team represented, and Anthony Davis was certainly deserving of the honor. But so was Goran Dragic. The Suns’ point guard has played at an…

This was a meeting of two of the four best defenses in the NBA (yes, Golden State is one of the top four defenses in the NBA, it’s why they are a playoff threat). The difference between the teams is Golden State has a player in Stephen Curry who is an elite scorer and can…

Who has allowed fewer points per possession this season, the San Antonio Spurs or Golden State Warriors? Since I’m asking, you know the answer is Golden State. The Warrior rank fourth in the NBA in defensive rating (99.3) – behind only the Pacers, Bulls and Thunder and just ahead of the Spurs. Last season, Golden…

All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…
