  1. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

  2. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

  3. Thursday night NBA grades: Golden State get a couple “A” grades

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about what was really in your donkey meat… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. When he is going like he was in this game — especially in the third quarter when he had 14 of his 36 — there is nothing you can do.…

  4. The Extra Pass: Changes coming in threes; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    If you’ve watched basketball this year and thought at some point, “Man, these teams sure are shooting a lot of threes”, you’re not alone. Firing up shots from behind the arc has become more of a standard practice for most NBA teams (except for good ol’ Memphis) and teams like the Phoenix Suns and Portland…

  5. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  6. Warriors beat Clippers… do we have a rivalry brewing?

    Dec 26, 2013, 2:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There isn’t a full-blown rivalry between the Clippers and Warriors. Yet. NBA rivalries are forged in the playoffs and these two up-and-coming teams in the West have yet to meet on that stage. But can they please? Can we get a Clippers/Warriors playoff matchup this season? I don’t think that’s too much to ask. The…

  7. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  8. The Extra Pass: Chicago’s never-ending story, plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nets Bulls Basketball

    In the early days of mixed martial arts, there were quite a few athletes who would refuse to submit in the ring. Their arm could be on the verge of snapping, but it didn’t matter – they wouldn’t give up. They would rather break their arm. I remember holding these athletes in such high regard,…

  9. The Extra Pass: The Spurs’ Hammer set; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs head coach Popovich talks to Duncan during the third quarter of play against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s San Antonio’s “Hammer” set. The San Antonio Spurs don’t get enough credit for keeping up with the times. Although the end result is often the same as it has always been – Tim Duncan facing up and banking a…

  10. Andre Iguodala could return to Warriors Tuesday night

    Dec 17, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Golden State is just one more loss away from being a .500 team — for all the sexy play of their sharpshooters they are not playing good defense anymore not winning games (6-9 in last 15, with the 17th ranked defense in the league). Who they miss is Andre Iguodala — and they could get…

  11. Mark Jackson frustrated with Warriors’ effort

    Dec 16, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Golden State had some dramatic and exciting comebacks at home recently, but those have masked some bigger issues. ‘The Warriors are 4-6 in their last 10, basically playing teams even, not hitting threes at the pace they used to but mostly not playing defense as well as they did at the start of the season…

  12. The Extra Pass: The league’s leading lineups; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  13. Andre Iguodala avoids surgery, but can the Golden State Warriors stay healthy?

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

  14. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  15. Stephen Curry out vs. Spurs Friday

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    UPDATE 6:10 p.m. ET: Curry is out, reports Sam Amick of USA Today. 1:17 p.m. ET: Stephen Curry is officially day-to-day with a bone bruise in his ankle — and considering this is their star player with a long history of ankle issues (including multiple surgeries), you can expect the Warriors will be cautious here.…

  16. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  17. Iguodala with ridiculous behind-the-back pass to Lee (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2013, 11:40 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    At points the Warriors just seemed to be toying with Philadelphia, playing their own blacktop game with plenty of street flair. Like long-distance alley-oops. Or, behind the back passes, like this Andre Iguodala to David Lee dish for the easy two. Iguodala had 32 points in his Philly homecoming. That went pretty well.

  18. Andrew Bogut, Xavier Henry highlights from Lakers/Warriors in Beijing (VIDEO)

    Oct 15, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    You could have NBA basketball for breakfast Tuesday. The Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 101-95 in a game played in Beijing, one that started at 7:30 am Eastern. There were a few highlights so we’re bringing them to you — Xavier Henry with the half-court alley-oop finish from Steve Blake, and Andrew Bogut…

  19. Harrison Barnes likely to miss Warriors’ next two preseason games in China due to foot injury

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    Harrison Barnes started 81 games as a rookie for the Warriors last season, and his explosiveness and athleticism on both ends of the floor were among the reasons the team exceeded expectations by getting to the second round of the playoffs. Health has been an ongoing concern in Golden State in recent years, so with…

  20. Harrison Barnes, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala competing for two starting spots

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Ever since the Warriors signed Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes has been pegged as Golden State’s sixth man. To his credit, Barnes said he’d be fine with that role. Barnes had an up-and-down rookie year, but he broke out in the playoffs by averaging 16.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. That’s the type of performance…

  21. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut says he is “100 percent” healthy

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    It’s going to be an interesting season in Golden State — there are expectations now. No sneaking up on anyone. They have a budding superstar in Stephen Curry, they went out and got a No. 2 guy and perimeter defender in Andre Iguodala, they have an All-Star in David Lee and good role players like…

  22. Wizards’ Bradley Beal has jersey retired by his former high school

    Bradley Beal

  23. David Lee says he has “no ill effects” from hip surgery

    Sep 4, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    David Lee

    If Golden State is going to take a step forward off last season, a few things need to happen for the Warriors. Among them, David Lee has to be all the way back from the hip flexor surgery he had last May. Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group put an interview with Lee…

  24. Gary Payton picks Golden State to win Western Conference

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Golden State is going to be a trendy pick for some this season. They have the shooting in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, they have added Andre Iguodala to help them in transition and with perimeter defense, they have a double-double machine in David Lee coming back, they bring Harrison Barnes off the bench. Optimism…

  25. New Kings coach wants Cousins to be an improved passer

    Sep 2, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    New Kings coach Mike Malone says of his offense what every coach says about their offense in the off-season — he wants to run. He wants to defend and be up tempo in transition. That may be true, but it’s pretty much like everyone running for president in the last 30 years saying they want…
