    Golden State Warriors v Sacramento Kings

    Jermaine O’Neal has a quirky hitch in his free throw shooting motion, and 18 years later, opponents still haven’t adjusted.

    Mar 14, 2014, 6:36 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Sacramento Kings

    Blake Griffin, David Lee

    The Warriors and Clippers don’t like each other, but it seems the Warriors particularly dislike Blake Griffin. Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut went after Griffin in December, and they successfully got the Clippers star ejected. Bogut even made a point not to apologize. Add Jermaine O’Neal to the list of Warriors who’ve feuded with Griffin.…

  7. Stephen Curry drops triple-double on Knicks at MSG

    Mar 1, 2014, 4:20 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    The NBA’s best players have a thing about being on the biggest stage — they know it and they put on their best performances in Madison Square Garden. Stephen Curry dropped 54 points on the Knicks last season in a coming out party, on Friday night he followed it up with 27 points, 11 rebounds…

  8. Curry floater, O’Neal block key dramatic Golden State win (VIDEOS)

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Houston and Golden State put on a show — a sloppy, poor shooting show, but one filled with drama nonetheless. That included Stephen Curry hitting a floater over Dwight Howard and off the glass to send the game to overtime. Then in overtime, with 30 seconds to go and Golden State up one, Jermaine O’Neal…

  9. Marreese Speights has dream night, hears “M-V-P” chants (VIDEO)

    Philadelphia 76ers v Golden State Warriors

    In case you missed it, we had to bring you this. Marreese Speights got more minutes because Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O’Neal out — that is how you take advantage.  He had 17 second quarter points on his way to 32 points for the game on 12-of-15 shooting. What was amazing was how he was…

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had a beer refrigerator as cool as Canada’s…. Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost two consecutive games by 40 or more points — 45 to the Clippers on Sunday, 43 to the Warriors on Monday. The only other team to lose back-to-back games…

  11. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  12. Andre Iguodala avoids surgery, but can the Golden State Warriors stay healthy?

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

  13. With O’Neal out, Warriors sign Dewayne Dedmon from D-League

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational - Day 2 - USC v South Carolina

    The news was not good but it was what was expected: an MRI on Jermaine O’Neal confirmed a bruised right knee and right groin strain. The backup big man is going to miss some time. For depth, the Warriors signed Dewayne Dedmon from their D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz, reports CSNBayArea.com. Dedmon was signed for…

  15. Jermaine O’Neal suffers sprained knee and strained groin in Warriors’ win over Jazz

    Nov 17, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    jermaine oneal warriors

    The Warriors had no trouble with the Jazz on Saturday and cruised to an easy double-digit win as expected. But the team lost backup center Jermaine O’Neal in the process. O’Neal went down early in the fourth quarter after slipping along the baseline, and had to be helped off the floor. It didn’t look good,…

  16. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  17. 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…

  18. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Golden State Warriors

    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…

  19. Lucas Nogueira says he’s flexible on developing his skill set either in Europe or in the NBA

    Adidas Eurocamp - Day 2

    TREVISO, Italy — Lucas Nogueira performed well during the first day of adidas Eurocamp, and perhaps even a bit better than expected. The competition level is always to be taken into account, but he showed a maturity on the floor and a controlled athleticism that made it easy to see why he’s projected as a…

  20. Marcin Gortat says lack of character in younger players a big problem for the Suns

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    PHOENIX — Marcin Gortat was among the veteran Suns players who weren’t at all happy with the way this season went in Phoenix. Along with Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley, Gortat is a holdover from better times the team experienced while playing with the likes of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, two of the game’s…

  22. Rockets win, make playoffs on Harden three, ridiculous Jermaine O’Neal goaltend (VIDEO)

    Apr 10, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    This may be the most ridiculous ending to a game this season. Not what the Rockets did — with seven seconds left in a 98-98 game they went to the old “isolate your best player out high” and James Harden dribbled it out then pulled up for a three. Which was short and bounced high.…

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

    Apr 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns
