Golden State Warriors

  1. Young, Iguodala with highlight dunks in Warriors win over Lakers (VIDEO)

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Young reacts after scoring against Golden State Warriors during their NBA Global Games in Shanghai

    Everyone could use a Swaggy P highlight before lunch. Golden State routed the Los Angeles Lakers 115-89 in Shanghai, China, early in the morning here (it was a 4:30 a.m. start in the cities where those teams play). Klay Thompson dropped 25 points to lead a Warriors team that shot 51.1 percent overall and hit…

  2. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  3. Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried suffers right hamstring strain

    Oct 17, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried in some ways symbolized the Denver Nuggets last season — athletic and with boundless energy to outwork his opponents, improving but still a bit raw and figuring out how to really play the game. Faried’s ability to bring that same energy at the start of this new season could have been compromised —…

  4. Harrison Barnes out again Friday with foot injury, could send him to sixth man role

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    On paper it always seemed logical that Harrison Barnes would be the sixth man in Golden State (and he said he was good with that). You don’t pay Andre Iguodala $12.9 million to come off the bench, and do you really want to mess with the Stephen Curry/Klay Thompson backcourt? Still, Mark Jackson was going…

  5. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Sacramento Kings

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Last season: Another mired below mediocre for a Kings team that has been just awful for the past seven years. Sacramento finished with just 28 wins, good for 13th out of 15 teams in the West. The team was 29th out of 30 in defensive efficiency (only the Bobcats were worse), DeMarcus Cousins remained out…

  6. Report: Warriors, Bogut talking contract extension

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season in the playoffs the Warriors defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Bogut was on the court and was the anchor in the paint. Look at it this way: When Bogut was on the court the Warriors defense was close to the Bulls regular season defensive numbers, when he sat they…

  7. D’Antoni on Kobe playing opening night: “No. I don’t think so.”

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant gestures to his teammates before their game against the Golden State Warriors at the NBA Global Games in Beijing

    It always seemed pretty much impossible that Kobe Bryant would be back from his ruptured Achilles tendon in April in time for the NBA’s opening night. But because he’s Kobe Bryant we all looked at it differently — this guy played with a broken finger on his shooting hand and just adjusted his shot to…

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

    Oct 15, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

    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…

  9. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Last season: The Warriors ultimately overachieved when all was said and done in 2013, getting to the second round of the playoffs and taking the eventual Western Conference champion Spurs to six games before their season was ended. For a sixth seed entering the playoffs with just 47 wins and having to go through the…

  10. NBA’s new promo video has young stars turning on arena lights (VIDEO)

    Oct 14, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    I’m not sure this is the best NBA season opening promo video I’ve seen this season, but I like it. The league put together footage of Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes, John Wall, Jrue Holiday, Kenneth Faried, Paul George and other young stars from around the league “turning on the lights” in their buildings with the…

  11. UPDATE: Utah’s Trey Burke out 8-12 weeks after finger surgery

    Oct 14, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    trey burke finger

    Trey Burke is still going to get the chance to run the Utah Jazz offense, but it likely will be 2014 before he gets the opportunity now. We got an update Monday on Burke’s broken finger from Saturday’s preseason game — he is going to need surgery to put pins in said finger. That was…

  12. Andrew Bogut cautious about believing the hype surrounding Warriors

    Oct 12, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    The Warriors overachieved last year by reaching the second round of the playoffs, and did so without a full complement of healthy players. The expectations are even higher entering this season, with the addition of Andre Iguodala in free agency and most of the key pieces anticipated to be 100 percent by the time the…

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

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    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…

  15. Harrison Barnes likely out Wednesday with foot issue

    Oct 8, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    Harrison Barnes put together a good rookie season then burst on the scene with the fan favorite, bombs-away Warriors during the playoffs (when he averaged 16.1 points a game). For his next trick this season all he has to do is show improvement to his game while meshing with newcomer Andre Iguodala who largely plays…

  16. Stephen Curry’s new post-three dance (okay, not really)

    Oct 8, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Isaiah Thomas

    Stephen Curry is not going to actually break this out in a game, because if he did even injured Mo Williams could beat him down the court. But this new ad made my chuckle, so I pass it along. Also, nice to see Curry getting some endorsements — the guy is poised for a breakout…

  17. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

  18. Andre Iguodala was throwing down alley-oops Monday

    Oct 8, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala is a good fit on the wing for Golden State. For one, they need someone who actually defend on the perimeter (no offense Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson) and Iguodala brings that. Plus, he can finish in transition — and the Warriors love to run. Look at how that worked out here. We’ll…

  19. Mark Jackson’s challenge to Stephen Curry: Commit fewer turnovers

    Oct 7, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry is coming off of a breakout season for the Warriors, one in which he averaged career-bests in points, assists, and minutes played. But Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is a master motivator, and he wants Curry to continue to improve. So he provided him with a little project. The challenge he posed to…

  20. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

    Oct 7, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant reacts during NBA Global Game against Fenerbahce Ulker in Istanbul

    Last season: The Thunder finished the regular season with a record of 60-22, which was good for the number one playoff seed in the Western Conference. Thanks to the unfortunate knee injury that occurred in Game 2 of the team’s first round playoff series against the Rockets, however, OKC quite literally limped to the finish…

  21. Lakers’ Xavier Henry’s half court buzzer beater (VIDEO)

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Xavier Henry, Dewayne Dedmon

    Kobe Bryant is in Germany (he was going to get around to telling Mike D’Antoni he was going but it slipped his mind). Pau Gasol and Steve Nash were watching in suits. So the Lakers had to turn to some of the guys fighting to make the team/get minutes to step up against Golden State…

  22. Randy Foye’s internal organs are all in the wrong place. Yes, seriously.

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Randy Foye

    Randy Foye is a veteran sharpshooter, last season in Utah he was taking 5.3 shots from beyond the arc a game and hitting 41 percent of them. He is entering his eighth NBA season, can play a little point in a pinch but mostly he is there to space the floor and knock down bombs…

  23. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  24. Battier says it will take time for Sports VU camera info to trickle down to players

    Oct 3, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Shane Battier

    We’ve talked about this a few times recently — new high-tech Sports VU cameras are going into all 29 NBA arenas this year. These cameras track every movement on the court by every player and send them to a computer for processing that opens up a world of potential data. You can measure and compare…

  25. Andrea Bargnani playing a lot of small forward? Bad. Idea. Jeans.

    Oct 3, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Andrea Bargnani

    Carmelo Anthony thrived last season on offense for the Knicks playing the four, the power forward spot — he could take bigger guys outside and beat them off the dribble, if teams went small against him he could post up. But that creates some roster challenges for Mike Woodson this season because Andrea Bargnani, Amar’e…
