Golden State Warriors

  1. Warriors’ Curry, Thompson set record for backcourt three pointers in season

    Apr 9, 2013, 1:41 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    The Golden State Warriors average just shy of 20 three pointers a game (which is middle of the pack in the NBA). But they hit 40.1 percent of them, best in the NBA. That’s because almost 14 of those 20 are taking by Stephen Curry (shooting 45.2 percent from three) and Klay Thompson (41.2 percent).…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Knicks climb up to No. 2

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:11 PM EST

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    Welcome to the penultimate PBT power rankings for the season. If you win 12 games in a row you can get the No. 2 spot, but if you asked me to pick who wins a seven game series between the Thunder and Knicks it would look different than this ranking. Same with the Spurs. But…

  3. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Knicks win 12th straight, Clippers clinch first division title

    Caron Butler, Blake Griffin, Robert Sacre, Chris Paul, Earl Clark

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the two-hour season premiere of Mad Men … Knicks 125, Thunder 120: When the Knicks are knocking down threes they can beat anyone — and they hit 10 threes in the first half as they pulled away. But more impressive was…

  4. Warriors use ‘elevator’ screens to perfection to free up their shooters (VIDEO)

    Apr 7, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis

    There are plenty of teams that use variations of a single play to get wide open looks for their best shooters. The Warriors use what’s called an ‘elevator,’ or ‘gator’ action to free up Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson for open looks from distance, and do so with both consistency and success. The video clip…

  5. Warriors one win from clinching a playoff spot after coming from 18 points down get win over Suns

    Apr 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — The Warriors are one win from clinching a playoff spot for the first time since 2007, thanks to an effort which saw them come from 18 points down on the road to get a 111-107 win over the Suns on Friday. Phoenix got off to a hot start behind 15 first quarter points…

  8. The summer vacation where Stephen Curry remade his jumper

    Apr 3, 2013, 2:56 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis

    Stephen Curry is the best pure shooter in the NBA today. We can debate the finer points of that if you want — Ray Allen still holds the crown for many — but Curry and his 45 percent from three and 44 percent shooting from 16 feet out to the arc is in the conversation.…

  9. Damian Lillard’s future goal: MVP

    Apr 2, 2013, 1:45 PM EST

    Hornets Trail Blazers Basketball

    At some point during the NBA award season, Damian Lillard is going to pick up the Rookie of the Year hardware. It is the biggest lock of the award season (even ahead of the inevitable LeBron MVP). The question with Lillard — who is older than most of his draft class after a four-year college…

  10. John Wall admits a number of point guards are better than him, still wants to get paid

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:15 AM EST

    John Wall

    It remains one of the interesting questions of the NBA off-season: How much do the Wizards offer John Wall in a contract extension? The Wizards are going to make an offer and they’ve suggested it’s substantial. I think something close to Stephen Curry’s four year, $44 million seems about right. Since getting back and healthy…

  12. 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,…

  13. John Wall is knocking down jumpers. Steadily.

    Mar 26, 2013, 7:25 PM EST

    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…

  14. 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),…

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

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:42 AM EST

    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…

  16. Harrison Barnes gets snarky with Warriors fans

    Mar 26, 2013, 8:40 AM EST

    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…

  17. Three Stars of the night: We believe edition

    Mar 26, 2013, 1:32 AM EST

    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…

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

    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…

    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…

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

    Mar 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

    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…

    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…
