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

    Apr 30, 2013, 2:11 PM EST

    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…

  2. Frustrated Faried kicked hole in locker room wall Sunday

    Apr 29, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried should be frustrated. He came back for Game two of the Nuggets series against Golden State right at the same time David Lee went out. Yet the Warriors have won three straight on the floor as Andrew Bogut and Carl Landry have stepped up inside the paint and, to the best of my…

  3. Andrew Bogut’s big night included some big dunks (VIDEO)

    Apr 29, 2013, 8:42 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut

    When the Golden State Warriors were trading for Andrew Bogut, this is the guy they were hoping to get — the Bogut from before the back and ankle injuries, the defensive force who had some offensive game. And could throw down a dunk or two as well. Which he did all over JaVale McGee. Bogut…

  4. Warriors shoot, play solid defense and take control of series 3-1 over Nuggets

    Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry reacts during their NBA Western Division quarter-final playoff game against the Denver Nuggets in Oakland

    When David Lee went down for the playoffs with a torn hip flexor, the Warriors were going to go small and it was hard to see how they were going to slow down a Denver team that led the NBA in points in the paint this past season. Not that Lee’s a defensive force, but…

  5. Westbrook officially out for playoffs following knee surgery

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook looks on during a timeout against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Russell Westbrook underwent successful surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee on Saturday, Oklahoma City officially announced. He will make a full recovery. That’s the good news if you’re an Oklahoma City Thunder fan. He will be out for these entire playoffs. That’s the bad news. The question of his return really…

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

    Apr 26, 2013, 2:17 PM EST

    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…

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

    Apr 26, 2013, 1:26 PM EST

    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…

  8. The Extra Pass: Lakers and Warriors forced to juggle lineups, Knicks do so by choice

    Apr 24, 2013, 1:20 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Warriors’ starters last night – Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut, Stephen Curry, Jarrett Jack and Klay Thompson – played one minute together during the regular season. The Lakers’ Game 1 starters – Steve Blake, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and Metta World Peace – had never before shared the court. Such is life without…

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

    Apr 24, 2013, 2:09 AM EST

    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 EST

    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. Roy Hibbert and David Lee exchange pleasantries while declaring dislike for each other

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:58 PM EST

    David Lee, Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert and David Lee fought during a Pacers-Warriors game in February, and in the aftermath, Hibbert apologized. To be clear, Hibbert apologized “to the fans that were sitting courtside.” You can watch that video again just to be sure, but Hibbert did not apologize to Lee. Hibbert even took Lee’s season-ending hip injury as…

  12. PBT Extra: Talking first weekend of NBA playoffs, Kobe’s tweets

    Honestly, I’m not sure how Kobe Bryant tweeting during the Lakers Game 1 loss to the Spurs became a story, but it did. Kobe’s says he’s going to shut down the in-game tweets, but as part of our discussion on PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about Kobe tweeting (she likes it) and the…

  13. David Lee played through back pain last two weeks, did that impact hip?

    Apr 22, 2013, 5:16 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    David Lee had the NBA’s longest active streak of regular season games played without a playoff appearance (577) — until Saturday night. He started his first playoff game, suited up for the Warriors against the Nuggets. He lasted three quarters, at the start of the fourth he took an awkward step and ended up tearing…

  14. David Lee out for season, spelling big problems for Warriors against Nuggets

    Apr 21, 2013, 1:28 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    Warriors forward David Lee is out for the season after tearing his right hip flexor against the Nuggets, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com: The Warriors were already in a hole after losing Game 1 to Denver, and they just sunk a lot deeper. Not only is Lee – who averaged 18.5 points and 11.2…

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

    Apr 20, 2013, 10:44 PM EST

    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…

Early reports are that he has a right hip injury: INJURY UPDATE:…

  21. David Lee assessed a retroactive flagrant foul for elbow that caused Dwight Howard to need stitches

    Mar 27, 2013, 9:42 PM EST

    Dwight Howard, David Lee

    Dwight Howard wasn’t at all pleased with David Lee following the Lakers’ loss to the Warriors on Monday, and it’s because of a play from Lee (seen in the video clip above) that caused Howard some discomfort. Howard was on the receiving end of an elbow from Lee, and to add insult to the injury,…

  22. Dwight Howard says he will remember elbow from David Lee. Really?

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:08 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Note to Dwight Howard: The best revenge is not getting beat in a key division game. But that’s not what Howard was talking about after the Lakers loss Monday to Golden State. In the second quarter Klay Thompson drove around Steve Blake like he wasn’t there (the Lakers perimeter defense was a disaster all game),…

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    John Wall already had one technical against the Warriors Saturday night, he had argued a physical screen set by David Lee in the first quarter should have been a foul. But the game was going to get more physical, more chippy in the second half. In the middle of the third quarter Wall was going for…

    Mar 15, 2013, 6:10 PM EST

    James Harden

    Whether you choose to believe this or not really comes down to how much you believe in ESPN’s Bill Simmons. But NBA trades do not work where a potential available player is only discussed with one team. If a GM is shopping — or even just testing the market — for a specific player then…
