  1. Andre Iguodala could return to Warriors Tuesday night

    Dec 17, 2013, 4:17 PM EST

    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…

  2. Mark Jackson frustrated with Warriors’ effort

    Dec 16, 2013, 6:14 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    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…

  6. Stephen Curry out vs. Spurs Friday

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:21 PM EST

    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.…

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

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 4, 2013, 11:40 PM EST

    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.

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

    Oct 15, 2013, 10:07 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EST

    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…

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

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    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…

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

    Bradley Beal

    Wizards guard Bradley Beal was honored by his former high school on Friday with a jersey retirement ceremony. From Ben Standig of CSN Washington: The Missouri native’s No. 23 jersey is being retired on Friday by his former high school.

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

    Sep 4, 2013, 6:01 PM EST

    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…

  15. Gary Payton picks Golden State to win Western Conference

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:59 PM EST

    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…

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

    Sep 2, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    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…

  17. Trip down memory lane: Dr. J visits Rucker Park (VIDEO)

    Aug 23, 2013, 7:01 PM EST

    Julius Erving slam dunk

    Last night was supposed to be one of the biggest nights of the year at famed Rucker Park in Harlem, the finals of the EBC league, but rain forced it inside where Kevin Durant, David Lee and some other NBA names still put on a show. That had me thinking about the history of Rucker…

  18. Kevin Durant, other stars light up NYC gym (VIDEO)

    Kevin_Durant

    This was supposed to be the EBC Finals at the legendary Rucker Park in New York… but Mother Nature was not in the mood for hoops and rained on the parade. So the game got moved indoors in the Bronx to the Gauchos Gym, where some NBA stars still put on a show. Kevin Durant dropped…

  19. Warriors’ Lee, Bazemore put on show at Rucker Park (VIDEO)

    Aug 13, 2013, 10:39 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Former Knick David Lee came to Rucker Park and got heckled — Knicks fans let him hear it a little bit. But Golden State’s double-double machine put on a show, along with teammate Kent Bazemore. They made their plays, as you can see above. Hat tip to SLAM for the video.

  20. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  21. David Lee says Warriors not trying to trade him

    Aug 7, 2013, 12:34 PM EST

    David Lee

    The Golden State Warriors have some salary challenges coming up in the next couple years. They are at a comfortable $66 million this season (over the cap but under the tax line) and next season Andrew Bogut comes off the books (at least at $14 million a year). However, Stephen Curry, David Lee and Andre…

  22. With Iguodala in fold, Harrison Barnes says he’s willing to come off bench

    Jul 23, 2013, 3:28 PM EST

    Harrison Barnes

    Golden State made a good move getting Andre Iguodala — his perimeter defense is needed on that roster and his play in transition will suit what the Warriors do well. But it left a Harrison Barnes question. Iguodala will be the starter at the three (with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut),…

  23. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…

  24. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EST

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

  25. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…
