Golden State Warriors

  1. Bulls start fast but can’t stop Stephen Curry, hot shooting Warriors comeback

    Feb 7, 2014, 2:42 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    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…

  2. 2014 Rising Stars Challenge rosters set; Anthony Davis taken with first overall pick

    Feb 6, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    faried rising stars

    The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

  3. 2014 Three-Point Contest field features five All-Stars

    Feb 6, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Contest

    Kyrie Irving will defend his title at the 2014 Three-Point Contest in New Orleans, and to win it for the second straight year he’ll have to beat a field that, at least on paper, appears to be pretty stacked. In addition to Irving, the east will be represented by Arron Afflalo, Bradley Beal, and Joe Johnson.…

  4. Wall, Lillard, George headline new look All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

  5. All-Stars Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan highlight field for 2014 Skills Challenge

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:11 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It seems redundant at this point to list Damian Lillard as part of the lineup for any of All-Star weekends many events, considering he’s participating in all of them. But he, along with DeMar DeRozan are the two 2014 All-Stars who will be taking part in the Skills Challenge event on All-Star Saturday night. The…

  6. Reports: Dunk contest field headlined by George, Wall, Lillard

    Feb 6, 2014, 5:58 PM EDT

    Paul George

    We let you know last night that Damian Lillard said he was in for the dunk contest (and maybe much more). He’s not the only star. Multiple reports (including Yahoo, CSNWashington.com and ESPN) have given us what we expect to be the six-man dunk contest field: Paul George (Indiana Pacers) Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)…

  7. The Extra Pass: Talking Blazers, Clippers, coaching with Bill and Luke Walton

    Feb 5, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are not fair weathered. They have stuck with the franchise through some dark times. Now they are being rewarded — with LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard leading the way, Portland fans are getting to witness some of the best, most entertaining basketball Rip City has seen in more than a decade.…

  8. Tuesday night NBA grades: Charlotte, Chicago win with defense…

    Feb 5, 2014, 2:20 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking this guy is tougher than you would be in his shoes… Charlotte Bobcats defense. Here’s a little secret — Golden State’s offense isn’t as good as you think it is. In their last five games the Warriors are shooting 39.5 percent overall and…

  9. Mark Jackson pitches Andrew Bogut for Defensive Player of the Year

    Feb 4, 2014, 5:33 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Andrew Bogut

    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…

  10. Kevin Durant dislikes dark ‘Slim Reaper’ nickname

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Nicolas Batum

    To compete at the highest levels, Michael Jordan channeled something inside himself, something dark and menacing. Sometimes, it made him really unlikable, even to his teammates. But it also separated him from several similarly talented players to the point there’s little debate about the greatest player of all time. Jordan’s mean streak both helped him…

  11. Report: Knicks make late push for Andrew Bynum, still looking for another big man

    Feb 3, 2014, 11:35 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    For a team that has had its success this season playing small ball, the Knicks have a lot of guys in their frontcourt. They start Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony but behind them are Kenyon Martin, Amar’e Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani, Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich. The challenge has been keeping all those banged-up bodies healthy…

  12. It’s official: Pacers sign Andrew Bynum for rest of season

    Feb 1, 2014, 11:02 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    UPDATE  #2 11:02 a.m.: It’s official, the Pacers have announced that Andrew Bynum has signed with Indiana for the remainder of the season. Bynum had wanted to play for more than the league minimum (we don’t yet know the details of the contract yet but the Pacers could offer more than the minimum) and for…

  13. Harrison Barnes with the huge dunk. Plus the and-one. (VIDEO)

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors pretty much did this to the Clippers all night long (ninth game in 14 days for the Clippers and they looked tired). The Clippers were trying to get back in transition and were a step slow, Jordan Crawford drove the lane then passed back to Harrison Barnes and… Boom goes the dynamite. Golden…

  14. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    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…

  15. Doc Rivers lobbied other coaches to vote DeAndre Jordan an All-Star. It won’t be enough.

    Jan 30, 2014, 2:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Boston Celtics

    Later on Thursday the NBA All-Star Game reserves will be announced — and in the Western Conference frontcourt a couple deserving guys will get snubbed. The fans voted in Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love as the starters. There likely will be four (maybe five) front court replacement players from a group including LaMarcus…

  16. PBT Extra: PBT does its own Rising Stars Challenge draft; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

  17. Michael Carter-Williams, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard all in All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge

    Jan 29, 2014, 5:45 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Sacramento Kings

    While the All-Star Game itself is an exhibition for the biggest names in basketball, a sneaky fun part of All-Star Weekend is always the Rising Stars Challenge — watching the games best young players put on a little show. And there are plenty of good young players to showcase this season. Last season’s Rookie of…

  18. John Wall gets the chasedown block on Stephen Curry (VIDEO)

    Jan 29, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    John Wall

    An awful turnover on the game’s first possession was one John Wall was able to turn into one of the night’s better highlights. After the Wizards won the opening tip, Wall lost the ball after a questionable pass from Bradley Beal. He was credited with the turnover (unfairly, probably) but he didn’t give up on…

  19. The Extra Pass: Should Indiana be worried about its offense? And Tuesday’s recaps.

    Jan 29, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Indiana is the best team in the NBA right now — they have the best record in the league (by percentage points over Oklahoma City) and they have the best point differential in the league. The Pacers are legitimate title contenders. They have done all that in spite of their offense. The…

  20. Lakers make it official: Kobe out at least three weeks, meaning no All-Star Game

  21. Report: Australia’s Dante Exum to declare for NBA Draft

    Jan 28, 2014, 9:32 AM EDT

    dante exum eurocamp

    Dante Exum is an Australian 6’6″ point guard who has had scouts drooling over both his current skill set and his NBA potential for well over a year. Many executives of teams currently projected to end up in the lottery have yet to see him play in person, but that’s likely to change over the…

  22. The Extra Pass: Three guys that deserve more playing time, plus Monday’s recaps

    Jan 28, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Milwaukee Bucks

    With the first half of the season in the books, let’s look at five players who deserve to get a little more burn the rest of the way. John Henson, F/C, Milwaukee Bucks Before we get to Henson, let’s travel in the way back machine to the 2009-10 season. If you’ll remember, Kurt Rambis was…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  24. Pat Riley says David Stern “The No. 1 reason why this league is where it is today”

    Jan 27, 2014, 1:27 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    This is David Stern’s final week as NBA Commissioner — the power exchange to Adam Silver comes over the weekend. Feb. 1 is the final day for David Stern on the job, and we all know the final day on a job you’re just screwing around and cleaning out your desk anyway. Stern is taking…

  25. John Wall trying to use USA Basketball snub as motivation

    Jan 27, 2014, 10:37 AM EDT

    the Washington Wizards host the Boston Celtics

    When USA Basketball announced its pool of players being considered for the World Championships this summer (and the Rio Olympics in a couple years) the list included the best point guards in the NBA: Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving, and Damian Lillard. John Wall was not on that list. His…
