    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.

    speights

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Lakers loss at Golden State on Saturday, Nick Young got into the lane for what was going to be an uncontested layup or dunk. Marreese Speights didn’t want to give up the easy two points, however, and grabbed Young from behind around the neck to take him down.…

  5. Trade rumor update: Nets may be Kyle Lowry frontrunners

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Charlotte Bobcats

    When last we left off with “Days of our Kyle Lowry,” the Raptors were shopping their favorite point guard around hard and had talked with New York. Then Knicks owner James Dolan pulled the plug on it because… well, he’s James Dolan. Now the Nets may be the frontrunners but the Knicks want back in…

    The Warriors need big-man depth. Festus Ezeli has been out all season. Jermaine O’Neal and Draymond Green are banged up. Marreese Speights can’t gain Mark Jackson’s trust. Andre Iguodala is injured, too, and although he mostly plays on the wing, his absence the number of minutes he and Harrison Barnes can soak up as a…

  8. Warriors’ reserves embarrasses themselves, so Mark Jackson embarrasses them

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    With his team up 23 points and fewer than four minutes remaining against the Jazz on Monday, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled his top players in favor of Ognjen Kuzmic, Marreese Speights, Nemanja Nedovic, Kent Bazemore and Draymond Green (who was replaced by Dewayne Dedmon a few seconds later). Promptly, those five reserves ceded a…

  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. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Kyrie Irving became the youngest All-Star since LeBron James, but the Cavaliers were decidedly awful throughout the year, finishing 24-58. Only the Bobcats were worse both offensively and defensively, Injuries took a major toll (more on that below), but the season never looked promising at any point, regardless. On the bright side, Dion…

  11. Warriors think they have a healthy Andrew Bogut this season

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season, Andrew Bogut missed 50 games. The season before that 54. The season before that 17. It’s been a long time since we’ve really seen a healthy Bogut for an extended period. But we also saw in the playoffs last season what a healthy Bogut means to Golden State — he is their defensive…

  12. With Iguodala in fold, Harrison Barnes says he’s willing to come off bench

    Jul 23, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Golden State made a good move getting Andre Iguodala — his perimeter defense is needed on that roster and his play in transition will suit what the Warriors do well. But it left a Harrison Barnes question. Iguodala will be the starter at the three (with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut),…

  13. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

  14. Report: Warriors to sign Marreese Speights to three-year deal

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli

    The Warriors depleted their bench while upgrading their top six, which is a pretty good tradeoff. In the playoffs, where Golden State is and should now be focused, rotations shrink and a team’s best players matter more. But it doesn’t hurt to have depth, and this should help bolster the Warriors’ bench. Marc J. Spears…

Collins, 62, has one year left on a four-year deal, but has told management he won’t return in that job. Collins’ possible return…

    Mar 6, 2013, 9:32 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    Rookie Tyler Zeller has been starting at center for the Cleveland Cavaliers, which really speaks more to their depth issues than his play. But Monday night Zeller was out and Marreese Speights got a chance got a chance to start, he hit 10-of-10 for 21 first half points when the Cavaliers were ahead of the…

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

    Jan 22, 2013, 9:08 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    Dec 15, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari celebrates a score past the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Denver

    No one is going to confuse the game of Danilo Gallinari with that of, say, Tracy McGrady. But pulling a stunt like this, and doing so successfully in a real live NBA contest that counts in the standings is not only bold, but it’s also damn impressive. With Denver trailing by two and under nine-and-a-half…
