    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being thankful you don’t live next door to the guy with 478 birds… Clippers 92, Spurs 87: The temptation is to say it’s too early to say the Clippers are legit contenders. And it is, but they have now beaten…

  3. Warriors coach Jackson defends playing small, David Lee

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:42 PM EST

    David Lee

    It wasn’t coach Mark Jackson’s plan to play a lot of small ball at Golden State — he wanted Andrew Bogut to be the guy in the middle. But with Bogut out for much of the young season, Jackson has gone small, playing David Lee and Carl Landry as the Warriors front line a lot.…

  4. Zeller trying to pass concussion tests; Varejao’s knee “not serious”

    Nov 8, 2012, 12:37 PM EST

    Tyler Zeller Cavaliers

    Cleveland did not look like same team in a loss to Golden State Wednesday as they did beating the Clippers Monday. Because they weren’t. No Anderson Varejao and his 15 points and 16 rebounds a game so far this season, he tweaked his knee against the Clippers. No backup big man Tyler Zeller and his…

  6. David Lee tells Blake Griffin to ‘stop flopping’ (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2012, 11:00 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, David Lee

    It’s honestly a surprise that this doesn’t happen more often. Mid-way through the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ win over the Clippers on Saturday, David Lee didn’t appreciate the way Blake Griffin reacted to some contact underneath the basket. Likely dealing with this in varying degrees all night, Lee had a message for Griffin, and…

  7. Stephen Curry says contract talks may have affected his opening night performance

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Stephen Curry

    The Warriors earned a hard-fought victory over the Suns on Wednesday, in a game where they blew all of a 17-point first-half lead and had to come from eight points down in the final period to get out with that win. A big part of the Warriors’ trouble was the fact that the team’s biggest…

    Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    Last Season: The Warriors hope that last season was one where the decisions the franchise made put the team in position to compete for years to come — starting now.

  12. Andrew Bogut wants his team to fight. Each other.

    Oct 6, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut has what you might call a false positive ID for being injury-prone. While it’s true that Bogut has lost a huge number of games over the  past three seasons to injury, much of that has stemmed from a serious of freak injuries. He doesn’t have the worrisome food problems that plague so many…

  13. No playoff promises from Warriors’ Jackson this year

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:21 AM EST

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Last year Mark Jackson was coming to the head coach’s chair straight out of a broadcast booth where he was supposed to be opinionated and brash. He was in front of a new team ownership group that was brimming with confidence. Jackson played right into all of it and was talking playoffs for the Warriors.…

  14. Andrew Bogut plans to play in a couple preseason games

    Sep 21, 2012, 8:12 AM EST

    Andrew Bogut, Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier

  15. Video: Jeremy Lin, David Lee play pick-up ball in Taipei

    Sep 6, 2012, 9:59 AM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    This is a fun video, and while the media crush was real, obviously the “we will go unnoticed if we put a huge Hello Kitty head on Jeremy Lin” part was staged. But Lin and David Lee playing some pickup ball in Taipei seems real enough. And this is a pretty fun video, worth watching…

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    The Warriors are betting big on Stephen Curry. It was only a matter of time before they had to choose between Curry and Monta Ellis, they chose Curry. But they did so with the knowledge that Curry was still having ankle issues, which have plagued him his entire career. But he and Andrew Bogut make…

  17. Mark Jackson has good players in Golden State now, can he lead them to wins?

    Aug 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Mark Jackson Warriors

    Last season, it wouldn’t have mattered if Golden State brought in John Wooden circa 1968 to coach the team — they didn’t have enough talent on the roster to win a lot of games. And what talent they did have kept getting injured. Mark Jackson kind of had a free pass to learn how to…

  18. The Inbounds: The Warriors become tank-proof

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors won’t be able to tank next year if they try. Well, OK, if they try they will. But it’s going to be a lot harder, because all of a sudden, their ten-man rotation isn’t just decent, it’s downright pretty good. Watching the Warriors’ moves over the past year has been an exercise in…

    Jul 26, 2012, 1:36 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum is in a great place, he can sit back and let the market come to him. He becomes a free agent next summer. If the Lakers trade him to Orlando or not, his options are pretty much clear — he can sign a five-year max deal with the team that has him or…

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:29 PM EST

    Turkey Basketball Euroleague Final Four

    It’s getting closer and closer to decision time for Andrei Kirilenko. He has said he’s interested in coming back to the NBA, but if he doesn’t like the offers he gets he could return to CSKA Moscow (where he played last season). You know they will take him. The Nets were the early frontrunners (Russian…

    The Lakers, Magic and Cavaliers are still talking about a blockbuster three-team deal that would send Dwight Howard to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum to the Cavaliers, and Anderson Varejao and picks to Orlando (there are other players in that deal as well).

    Houston Rockets v Memphis Grizzlies

    LAS VEGAS — The second day of NBA Summer League featured pretty the same things as the first — random cameos in the crowd by established NBA like Baron Davis, J.R.
