Stephen Curry

  1. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  2. Warriors may shut down Stephen Curry, can look forward to questions about tanking if they do

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    Stephen Curry has had a hard time staying healthy. He’s tweaked his surgically repaired right ankle more times this season than we’d like to count, including in Phoenix back on Feb. 22, and most recently in a win over the Mavericks on March 10. With the Warriors making the deal Tuesday that sent Monta Ellis…

  3. Warriors reach deal to send Ellis to Bucks for Bogut, Jackson

    Mar 13, 2012, 9:03 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    What happened to the Golden State franchise that would only trade Monta Ellis to Orlando if they got Dwight Howard back? This isn’t that. In the first of the deadline trades this year, Golden State will send Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  4. Report: Warriors owner kills Monta Ellis to Orlando

    Mar 13, 2012, 1:07 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Do the Orlando Magic want to acquire Monta Ellis in a desperate effort to prove to Dwight Howard how they want to keep him and put real talent around him? You bet they do. But it takes two teams to make a trade, and reports out of the Bay Area have consistently said they would…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls, Heat own top two spots. Again.

    Mar 12, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The trade deadline could really shake up the power rankings… but probably not. 1. Bulls (34-9, last week ranked number 1). The Bulls keep winning while they are banged up — Joakim Noah is back Monday for the Knicks but Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton are out. Those wins are really impressive. But the big…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  7. Report: Nuggets put “Birdman” Chris Andersen on trade block

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    CAnderson_necktat

    At the San Francisco Chronicle, they have done a detailed team-by-team breakdown of trade options for the Warriors. For example, they say Golden State doesn’t want to do a Stephen Curry for Rajon Rondo swap with Boston (the Celtics wouldn’t do that one either). But when it got to Denver there was an interesting note:…

  8. Monday And-1 links: A couple rumors, Kobe’s mask, more

    Mar 5, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Pau Gasol

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). The Clippers and Timberwolves have some interest in Jamal Crawford of Portland and trade talks may follow. Crawford was brought in after the Brandon Roy…

  9. Video: Monta Ellis with circus layup against Toronto

    Mar 5, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Monta Ellis is one of the most entertaining scorers in the league and this 360 reverse layup from Sunday’s game against the Raptors is a must see. With the Warriors scoring just 28 points in the second half, it pretty much took shots like this for them to get buckets. And it’s nice to see…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: All-Star Weekend edition

    Feb 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  11. Rajon Rondo to replace Stephen Curry in Skills Challenge

    Feb 24, 2012, 9:51 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    We told you the night it happened that Stephen Curry‘s foot injury — which his agent swears is not related to his ongoing ankle issues, and when has an agent ever lied? — might keep him from defending his title in the All-Star Saturday night skills challenge. It is. The league announced that Curry is…

  12. Video: Monta Ellis hits tough fadeaway with one second left to beat the Suns

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    It was far from a perfect win for the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. They led by as many as 21 points in the first half, before giving all of the lead away to trail by one with under two and a half minutes left in the game. But Monta Ellis made sure they’d go…

  13. Stephen Curry suffers right foot injury, consider him questionable for Skills Challenge

    Feb 23, 2012, 1:29 AM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Stephen Curry sat dejected in front of his locker Wednesday night, shirtless and with his right foot soaking in a tub of ice water. The unhappy look on his face wasn’t a product of the game’s result — a 106-104 victory for his Warriors over the Suns in Phoenix. It was due to the fact…

  14. Westbrook, Williams headline All-Star Skills Challenge

    Feb 20, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Samuel Dalembert

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge can get overlooked during the All-Star Saturday festivities (especially when guys are dunking over a car), watching guys go through drills is not the most exciting part of the weekend. But this year’s lineup might at least get you stop and watch. Participating are: Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Tony Parker,…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Streaking Heat, Spurs land on top

    Feb 20, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Miami has looked dominant the last week, while Tony Parker may be the best player in basketball the last two weeks so the Spurs climb. At the bottom, things look familiar. 1. Heat (24-7, last week ranked 1). They became the third team in the NBA to sweep a back-to-back-to-back (Bulls, Thunder), but they did…

  16. Report: Warriors aren’t giving up on the Dwight dream

    Feb 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Warriors are not storming the gates of playoff heaven. They’re barely within sight of the pearly wrought iron structures that guard May and June at 11-16, on a two-game losing streak after some progress this month. But that doesn’t mean they think they’re lost in the wilderness. Quite the contrary, they think they’re good…

  17. Warriors front office takes heat because Jeremy Lin got away

    Feb 15, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    At the time, Golden State was letting go a little-used guard who spent time in the D-League to clear the way for a $10 million a year offer to DeAndre Jordan, the big-time center the Warriors needed (and still need). Now, they are the team that had Jeremy Lin and didn’t realize what they had.…

  18. Tuesday And-1 links: Zach Randolph is back at practice

    Feb 14, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Zach Randolph has been cleared by doctors for non-contact practices and is expected to return to the Grizzlies in early March. That would be huge…

  19. Warriors Jerry West was watching Gilbert Arenas workout, too

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Jerry West

    Do the Golden State Warriors really need another guard? Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry start (and have been playing well together of late), Nate Robinson and Klay Thompson come off the bench. Well, they are at least looking. Warriors consultant — and by consultant, think Consigliere — was at Gilbert Arenas’ workout in Los Angeles,…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami crushes faith in Atlanta

    Feb 13, 2012, 2:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what the heck Nicki Minaj was doing at the Grammys…. Celtics 95, Bulls 91: No Derrick Rose but the Bulls made a late rally and a game of it, in our game of the day. Lakers 94, Raptors 92: The Lakers are still a disorganized mess at the end of…

  22. Warriors, Rockets feel regret about letting Jeremy Lin go

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:02 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Golden State had Jeremy Lin for a full season last year, but decided he just wasn’t going to work for them. Monta Ellis handles the ball a lot, Stephen Curry is the starter at the point and Golden State went another direction with his backup. The Rockets had Lin earlier this season, but they also…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Sacramento fans come out in force

    Feb 10, 2012, 3:03 AM EDT

    Kings, DeMarcus Cousins

    What you missed while making your Valentines Day dinner reservations at Waffle House…. Lakers 88, Celtics 87 (OT): It felt like and old rivalry when these two got together in our game of the night. Kings 106, Thunder 101: Kings fans used this game to remind you that they are as good as they come.…

  24. Wednesday’s And-1 links: It’s going to cost you to see Jeremy Lin

    Feb 8, 2012, 11:45 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin Knicks

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). You want to see Jeremy Lin play for the Knicks? It’s going to cost you. Larry Bird says he and Red Auerbach are about loyalty,…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Heat on top, Clippers climbing

    Feb 6, 2012, 2:12 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James prepares to make a shot against Milwaukee Bucks during their NBA game in Milwaukee

    Miami moves back into the top spot — but the Clippers have now cracked the top three, which had been the domain of the Heat, Bulls and Thunder for a while. Oh, and the Bobcats still suck. 1. Heat (18-6, last week ranked No. 2). They’ve had a few uninspired wins (like Sunday against the…
