  1. Mark Jackson wants Warriors to “speed up the process”

    Jan 3, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Mark Jackson has a calm, yet demanding presence as head coach of the Golden State Warriors that seems like it could work long-term if the team continues to add pieces and improve from a raw talent standpoint. But as a former player who wants to make a more immediate impact, Jackson’s patience will be tested.…

  2. Kobe shooting woes sign of changes coming to Lakers

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant looks on against the New York Knicks during second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant was ice cold last night, shooting 6-of-28. That of course has led to the standard black or white Kobe discussion on the internet — his defenders act as if he can do no wrong, his detractors think he shoots for his ego not because he’s one of the game’s great all time shooters.…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Blazers climb, Heat on top of mountain

    Jan 2, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Lots of big moves up and down as the rankings start to shake themselves out a little. In college football they should hold off doing polls through those early weeks because said polls impact the postseason, but as the NBA has a playoff to determine who is best let’s dive in. 1. Heat (5-0, last…

  4. 100 early season observations

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  5. Monta Ellis out Saturday for Warriors, Curry questionable

    Dec 30, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Golden State’s scoring power could be very depleted when Philadelphia comes to town Saturday. Monta Ellis has been given permission to miss the game to attend the funeral of his grandmother who recently passed away in Mississippi, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. “Bottom line is he’s a family member going through something right now,” (coach…

  6. Jeremy Lin is eager to prove himself as more than a piece of NBA trivia

    Dec 29, 2011, 6:52 PM EDT

    large_Lin

    A little known fact about Jeremy Lin, who was recently claimed off waivers by the New York Knicks: he actually has a pretty solid all-around game. He’s a big guard, racks up steals at an incredible rate, and is — at the very least — a solid straight-line driver. A better-known fact about Jeremy Lin:…

  7. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Golden State is still looking to add size in the paint, and they may have found some. Ukrainian center Kyrylo Fesenko has reached a one year deal with the Golden State Warriors, reports CSNBayArea.com and Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated.

    stephen curry

    UPDATE 1:42 PM: Stephen Curry is going to sit out the Warriors game against the Knicks Wednesday, his agent told the USA Today. This would be the smart thing to do, he’s rolled the same surgically repaired ankle twice in the past week. The good news out of this is that X-rays showed no serious…

  10. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EDT

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

  13. Chris Paul is really good, which makes Clippers better than Warriors

    Dec 26, 2011, 6:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    For three-plus quarters, the Clippers did not look like the Golden Child, the team anointed to take over Los Angles, lob city, Western Conference contenders. Their half court offensive execution was unimpressive and Chauncey Billups suddenly had the shot selection of a rookie. Then Chris Paul took over the game. In the final 6:07 of…

  14. Previewing NBA’s Christmas Day tip-off

    Dec 23, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    Time to unwrap the present of an NBA season — and just like the gifts under the tree there may be some assembly required. Condensed training camps and just two preseason games is going to mean some sloppy openers on Christmas day. But they are games, which are vastly superior to antitrust lawsuits. So let’s…

  15. Stephen Curry sounds optimistic about playing Christmas Day

    Dec 23, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    It wasn’t pretty when Stephen Curry sprained his ankle in a preseason game — the same one he had surgery on this summer. He was crawling around on the court on all fours then was carried by teammates back to the locker room. But the damage was not that bad, and it looks like he…

  16. Stephen Curry listed as day-to-day, could play Christmas Day

    Dec 21, 2011, 8:45 PM EDT

    nba-lockout-curry

    Stephen Curry’s ankles remain a concern. Just not as big a one in the short term. After an evaluation on Wednesday, Curry’s ankle didn’t show any ligament damage and he is considered day-to-day, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. No decision has been made on if he will play Christmas night for the Warriors as they…

    The woman accusing Monta Ellis and the Golden State Warriors of sexual harassment filed a lawsuit in Oakland Wednesday — a suit that includes the allegation the Warriors star texted her pictures of his genitals among other harassing measures.

  19. Stephen Curry sprains ankle he just had surgery on

    Dec 21, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    Curry injured AP

    The point of Stephen Curry’s offseason right ankle surgery was to tighten tendons and strengthen a part of the body prone to injury. But here we go again. And Warriors fans should feel a little queasy. In the second quarter of his second preseason game (against Sacramento Tuesday night), Curry rolled that same ankle pretty…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT.

  22. Report: Warriors to trade Lou Amundson to Pacers for Brandon Rush

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Golden State Warriors

    From Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times: UPDATE II: The Warriors are in the process of trading Lou Amundson, according to a team source. A second source confirmed it is for Indiana Pacers swingman Brandon Rush. Amundson was held out of Saturday’s game vs. Sacramento. It is not official and likely won’t be before…

  23. Now what for the Boston Celtics? It’s not a pretty picture.

    Dec 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    What really matters in all of this is that Jeff Green will be fine and next season will return to the NBA. That is what is important. But Green being out for the entire NBA season following heart surgery leaves the Boston Celtics in a bind. Green was key to their chances this season —…

    Because the Bobcats needed something else to go wrong… Eduardo Najera will be out for six to eight weeks recovering from surgery to repair a cartilage tear in his knee, tweets Steve Reed with the Associated Press. The Bobcats are already without Reggie Williams for a while due to knee surgery and Bismack Biyombo can’t…

  25. Bobcats Reggie Williams out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery

    Dec 16, 2011, 9:57 AM EDT

    WILLIAMS_REGGIE

    I like the Reggie Williams signing in Charlotte — right now that offense is going to rely too much on Corey Maggette and Williams is a guy who could be the spark off the bench, the sixth man who comes in with the green light and changes the flow of the game. But 24-hours after…
