    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    So much for that torn hip flexor ending David Lee‘s season. In a stunning development, Lee has been cleared to play in game 6 for the Warriors according to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports. Lee has missed the last four games of the series after he left game 1 early in the 4th quarter after injuring…

    It’s not a surprise. We told you it was coming. But it is still the end of an era we all enjoyed, even if we enjoyed mocking most of the time. David Kahn has been let go as the general manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves the team has confirmed, something first reported by the Associated…

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    The Warriors look to be in a perfect position. They have the series lead over the Nuggets at 3 games to 2. They’re heading home to Oracle Arena to play a close out game where the fans will create an environment that’s rarely seen in pro sports. They have the best player in the series…

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    The war of words between Mark Jackson and George Karl is heating up in advance of Thursday night’s Game 6 between the Nuggets and the Warriors. The entire series has been a physical one, with players on both sides getting in their fair share of shots. But Jackson took exception to the way Denver defended…

  5. Report: Nuggets players were calling Stephen Curry “soft”

    May 2, 2013, 10:14 AM EST

    Stephen Curry, Eric Lewis, Tony Brothers

    Let’s start by saying you should take this with a grain of salt — it’s Warriors sources talking about what Nuggets players are saying. That has spin written all over it. But the Nuggets ratcheted up the physical play in Game 5 so you can connect the dots with what Tim Kawakami wrote at the…

    We’ve essentially known this for quite some time, but it became official on Wednesday: Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers was named as the 2012-13 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year. Lillard’s selection was a unanimous one, as he received all 121 first place votes. The last unanimous winner of the award was Blake…

  7. Stephen Curry says Mark Jackson just protecting his players

    May 1, 2013, 6:34 PM EST

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    Mark Jackson had to know he sounded like a hypocrite saying the Nuggets were being too physical with his players. Jackson was the guy who sent out his players to commit hard fouls on Rockets players when Houston threatened to set a record for most three pointers in one game. This is Mark Jackson, former…

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    It was a rough night in Denver for the Warriors’ Stephen Curry. Not only did the Nuggets avoid elimination with a Game 5 victory, they were able to shut down Curry in the process. Denver held Curry to a series low 15 points on 7-of-19 shooting, including just 1-of-7 from three-point distance. This came after…

    Manimal was looking better Tuesday. Kenneth Faried was slowed this series by a sprained ankle but looked  recovered Tuesday as Denver got back home and picked up an emphatic Game 5 win. The victory came with some physical play that Warriors coach Mark Jackson didn’t like. (Golden State is going to need to toughen up, because…

  10. Mark Jackson accuses Nuggets of dirty plays on Stephen Curry after Warriors’ Game 5 loss

    May 1, 2013, 12:49 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    The Nuggets avoided elimination with their Game 5 win over the Warriors, but the way they went about it didn’t sit well at all with Golden State’s head coach, Mark Jackson. Denver was physical throughout the night, but especially so with Stephen Curry, who has been torching the Nuggets the entire series. He was held…

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala drives past Golden State Warriors' Curry during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    The Nuggets finally looked like themselves this series, and not a moment too soon. By beating the Warriors 107-100, the Nuggets not only staved off elimination, but grabbed some momentum in the process. Nearly every Nugget win this season saw the same trends develop and this game was no different. Denver scored 50 points in…

  13. 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…

  14. Jason Collins’ road from journeyman to household name

    Apr 29, 2013, 3:17 PM EST

    FILE:  NBA Player Jason Collins Comes Out As Gay

    Jason Collins was the kind of player NBA people like on their team, but not a guy who was a household name. Until now. Collins — a 12-year NBA veteran — came out as gay on Monday. He’s the first active major American team sport athlete to come out as gay. At this point his…

  15. Jason Collins’ coming out as gay shouldn’t affect his free agency

    Apr 29, 2013, 2:07 PM EST

    File photo of Washington Wizards' Jason Collins going to the basket against Chicago Bulls' Taj Gibson during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago, Illinois

    When I read Jason Collins’ story in Sport Illustrated coming out as gay, my first thought was: good. This is an exciting moment, a historic declaration by Collins, who is tearing down the homophobia that once permeated through American team sports. Much later, my another thought kicked in: dread. As Collins notes in his story,…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

    Golden State Warriors' Curry shoots over Denver Nuggets' Miller during Game 4 of their NBA Western Division quarter-final basketball playoffs in Oakland

    For the first 29 minutes Sunday night, Denver’s strategy of taking Stephen Curry out of the Warriors offense was working — he only had one basket and that was a late in the clock desperation three from 28 feet. Curry had five assists, but Denver was successfully keeping him from triggering the offense. And then…

  19. 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…

  20. Nuggets need to make defensive adjustments to even it up against the Warriors

    Apr 28, 2013, 4:40 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    The Warriors have momentum on their side. They have won two straight games, are finding ways to hit the key shots that turn the tide of the game, and nearly every adjustment head coach Mark Jackson has made has worked out in their favor. The Nuggets, meanwhile, are still searching for something sustainable that works.…

    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…

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    Is there a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA right now than Stephen Curry? You can make an argument for a couple of guys if you want, but Curry is in the mix. Despite a sprained ankle suffered in Game 2 he had it going again against the Nuggets in Game 3 Friday,…

  23. Bulls-Nets Game 4 preview: Can either team generate offense?

    Apr 27, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    The teams with worse offensive ratings than the Bulls and Nets in these playoffs are a combined 0-11. Part defensive struggle, part offenses struggling, this series is the Eastern Conference’s answer to the high-flying Nuggets-Warriors matchup. While Stephen Curry is bombing 3-pointers and Ty Lawson is dishing assists, Joakim Noah and Joe Johnson are comparing…

    Golden State Warriors Jarrett Jack gestures during their NBA Western Division quarter-final playoff game against the Denver Nuggets in Oakland

    The Warriors shot the lights out in Denver to steal Game 2 from the Nuggets, and home court advantage in the best of seven first round series right along with it. In Game 3 at Oracle Arena on Friday, Golden State didn’t need an otherworldly performance to seal the victory; they only needed the Nuggets…

    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…
