    Legendary baseball statistician Bill James once said the big problem with the NBA is that the best team usually wins in the playoffs. He’s right, the NBA playoffs tend to follow form. And he’s right that we like unpredictability in the playoffs. Baseball has a long grind of a season, but in a seven game…

    What. A. Game. After the contest Manu Ginobili said he had no idea how his Spurs won this game 129 to 126 to take a 1-0 in the Western Conference semi-finals. He’s not alone as I’m sure the Warriors will be tormenting themselves wondering the same thing. The Spurs looked dead in the water against…

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    Jarrett Jack will hit free agency this summer as the third-place finisher in Sixth Man of the Year voting, a key cog in the Warriors’ upset of the Nuggets and a player in line for a raise. Jack made $5.4 million this season, arguably the best of his career. At 29, he’s really seemed to…

    It’s not a surprise. We told you it was coming. But it is still the end of an era we all enjoyed, even if we enjoyed mocking most of the time. David Kahn has been let go as the general manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves the team has confirmed, something first reported by the Associated…

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    The war of words between Mark Jackson and George Karl is heating up in advance of Thursday night’s Game 6 between the Nuggets and the Warriors.

  12. Report: Nuggets players were calling Stephen Curry “soft”

    May 2, 2013, 10:14 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Eric Lewis, Tony Brothers

    Let’s start by saying you should take this with a grain of salt — it’s Warriors sources talking about what Nuggets players are saying. That has spin written all over it. But the Nuggets ratcheted up the physical play in Game 5 so you can connect the dots with what Tim Kawakami wrote at the…

    May 1, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    Mark Jackson had to know he sounded like a hypocrite saying the Nuggets were being too physical with his players. Jackson was the guy who sent out his players to commit hard fouls on Rockets players when Houston threatened to set a record for most three pointers in one game. This is Mark Jackson, former…

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    It was a rough night in Denver for the Warriors’ Stephen Curry. Not only did the Nuggets avoid elimination with a Game 5 victory, they were able to shut down Curry in the process. Denver held Curry to a series low 15 points on 7-of-19 shooting, including just 1-of-7 from three-point distance. This came after…

    Manimal was looking better Tuesday. Kenneth Faried was slowed this series by a sprained ankle but looked  recovered Tuesday as Denver got back home and picked up an emphatic Game 5 win.

    May 1, 2013, 12:49 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    The Nuggets avoided elimination with their Game 5 win over the Warriors, but the way they went about it didn’t sit well at all with Golden State’s head coach, Mark Jackson. Denver was physical throughout the night, but especially so with Stephen Curry, who has been torching the Nuggets the entire series. He was held…

  19. Facing Elimination, Nuggets need to pull out all the stops against Warriors

    Apr 30, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    George Karl, Andre Iguodala

    Few people expected we’d be at this point this soon, if they even thought we’d be here at all. The Nuggets are facing elimination in the fifth game of their series versus the Warriors — a series many had them winning at the outset, with even more jumping on the bandwagon after David Lee was…

  20. Frustrated Faried kicked hole in locker room wall Sunday

    Apr 29, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried should be frustrated. He came back for Game two of the Nuggets series against Golden State right at the same time David Lee went out. Yet the Warriors have won three straight on the floor as Andrew Bogut and Carl Landry have stepped up inside the paint and, to the best of my…

    Golden State Warriors' Curry shoots over Denver Nuggets' Miller during Game 4 of their NBA Western Division quarter-final basketball playoffs in Oakland

    For the first 29 minutes Sunday night, Denver’s strategy of taking Stephen Curry out of the Warriors offense was working — he only had one basket and that was a late in the clock desperation three from 28 feet. Curry had five assists, but Denver was successfully keeping him from triggering the offense. And then…

    Apr 29, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry reacts during their NBA Western Division quarter-final playoff game against the Denver Nuggets in Oakland

    When David Lee went down for the playoffs with a torn hip flexor, the Warriors were going to go small and it was hard to see how they were going to slow down a Denver team that led the NBA in points in the paint this past season. Not that Lee’s a defensive force, but…

  23. Nuggets need to make defensive adjustments to even it up against the Warriors

    Apr 28, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    The Warriors have momentum on their side. They have won two straight games, are finding ways to hit the key shots that turn the tide of the game, and nearly every adjustment head coach Mark Jackson has made has worked out in their favor. The Nuggets, meanwhile, are still searching for something sustainable that works.…

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    Is there a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA right now than Stephen Curry? You can make an argument for a couple of guys if you want, but Curry is in the mix. Despite a sprained ankle suffered in Game 2 he had it going again against the Nuggets in Game 3 Friday,…

    Apr 27, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    The teams with worse offensive ratings than the Bulls and Nets in these playoffs are a combined 0-11. Part defensive struggle, part offenses struggling, this series is the Eastern Conference’s answer to the high-flying Nuggets-Warriors matchup. While Stephen Curry is bombing 3-pointers and Ty Lawson is dishing assists, Joakim Noah and Joe Johnson are comparing…
