Golden State Warriors

  1. John Wall is knocking down jumpers. Steadily.

    Mar 26, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    You’ve all heard the book on John Wall — go under the pick, play off him, he’s as quick as any guard in the league, amazing straight line speed, is a good playmaker… But he has no jump shot. Except, lately he has been knocking down his remade jumper. A lot of people noticed it…

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

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    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),…

  3. Stephen Curry breaks Steve Nash’s ankles, drains three (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    When Stephen Curry has it going there may not be a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA. And he had it going against the Lakers Monday — 25 points, 10 assists and spearheading the Warriors win over the Lakers. Maybe the most memorable play is this one, where a little move leaves Steve…

  4. Harrison Barnes gets snarky with Warriors fans

    Mar 26, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Most athletes and coaches make nothing but mundane comments after games. They just watched the same game as everyone else, and although the athletes and coaches often have more nuanced observations, they rarely offer to share those insights. So, the insiders often end up providing basic, fact-based quotes that could come from anyone. For an…

  5. Three Stars of the night: We believe edition

    Mar 26, 2013, 1:32 AM EDT

    John Wall

    There are some players everyone believes in , and other players whose teammates believe in them. And then there are those players who completely believe in themselves – even when others might not. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (35 points, 8 rebounds) Arguably, no player believes in himself more than Kobe, who shot 11-for-27 against the…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Streakers go to front of the line

    Mar 25, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Obviously the Heat are undefeated in their last 10 games, but in the East the Brooklyn Nets are the only team with a better than .500 record in their last 10 games. Which is why after the Heat the next five spots on this list come from the Western Conference. 1. Heat (54-14, last week…

  7. Stephen Curry leaves Warriors’ win over Wizards with ankle injury (VIDEO)

    Mar 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Any time you see Stephen Curry leave a game with an ankle injury, as he did Saturday night in the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ win over the Wizards, there’s going to be cause for concern. Those types of injuries have plagued Curry over the early part of his career, but thankfully, this one doesn’t…

  8. John Wall gives Klay Thompson an earful, gets ejected (VIDEO)

    Mar 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    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…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while reading the oral history of Ace of Bass’ one hit…. Heat 98, Cavaliers 95: Crazy game.

    Mar 19, 2013, 1:56 AM EDT

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    On a night with some big games and big lines — Stephen Curry had 30 points and just misses out — two of our three stars come from one game. One of the best, most entertaining games of the season. We couldn’t leave either of these guys off. Third Star: Wilson Chandler (35 points, 9…

  13. NBA Power Rankings: Western teams jockey for position behind Heat.

    Mar 18, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    It’s Miami and then everyone else right now — but notice the next six teams in our weekly power rankings are from the West. That’s because the play of the second tier teams in the East has fallen off (Indiana, New York, Brooklyn) 1. Heat (51-14, last week ranked No. 1). What kind of concerns…

  15. Three Stars of the night: Durant, Ellis show how to close out games

    Mar 18, 2013, 2:24 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    While you were hopping from Irish pub to Irish pub Sunday, the NBA was putting a pretty solid slate of eight games. We had some surprise good performances and some from the usual suspects. Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook, we’re sorry. On Selection Sunday you were the bubble guys who got cut from Three Stars.…

  16. Did Warriors, Wizards turn down James Harden deals?

    Mar 15, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    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…

    Mar 14, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers center Hibbert puts up a shot against Minnesota Timberwolves forward Williams during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Every team entering the playoffs needs their star to step up, but these three guys have a little extra weight on their shoulders. Without big performances these guys’ teams sink fast in the postseason (or in Kobe’s case, don’t even make the playoffs). Honorable mention tonight to Thaddeus Young who put up 24 points and…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:31 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Smith walks off the floor after missing a shot in their NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in New York

    On the scale of Flagrant II fouls, J.R. Smith‘s on Harrison Barnes Monday was not as bad as many. But Joey Crawford and the referee corp saw the replay above and decided the foul was “unnecessary and excessive” — the threshold that has to be met for the Flagrant II and automatic ejection. As Mike…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  22. David Lee misses Warriors’ loss to Bucks due to knee injury, says he’ll be ready to go Monday vs. Knicks

    Mar 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    David Lee, Zach Randolph

    David Lee sat out the Warriors’ 103-93 home loss to the Bucks on Saturday with a bruised right knee, but he doesn’t expect to be sidelined much longer. Lee was experiencing swelling in the knee, after banging it against the knee of Thomas Robinson midway through the first quarter of Golden State’s loss to Houston…

    Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Washington Wizards in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Deron Williams put himself in the NBA record book on Friday, and he did so before the first half of the game between the Nets and the Wizards was anywhere close to being finished.

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Stephen Curry has range. CSNBayarea.com caught him taking and making a shot from the players hallway in Oracle Arena before Wednesday night’s game. And caught the celebration afterwards. Unlike when the game was on the line later that night, Curry was not double teamed for this shot.
