Warriors forward Draymond Green fell a bit short of his standard triple-double output against the Rockets last night, but he appeared to accomplish a rare NBA feat after having a clean block erased by a bad foul call.
The Warriors and Rockets are engaged in an absolute barn burner in Oakland—it was 93-93 at the end of the third quarter—full of unlikely threes and great offense. But even within the context of an already hyperkinetic game, this amazing sequence by the Warriors is one of the prettiest things I’ve seen all season.
This past Saturday, the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors blew a 24-point lead to the lowly Philadelphia 76ers, needing a last-second Harrison Barnes three-pointer to dispatch the Association’s most consistently-pathetic team. In a season full of Warriors blowout wins, allowing that kind of Sixers comeback…
The triple-double has always been more of a fun box-score artifact than a meaningful statistic, but Draymond Green has been gilding lilies that deserve special recognition.
Draymond Green and the Warriors lost by -3 in Philadelphia to those guys who are always hogging the court down at your local Y. The Warriors clinched the narrow loss with a Harrison Barnes three, from a great pass out of the middle from Green. However, they really shouldn’t have let it get that close. Golden State…
The hapless Philadelphia 76ers erased a 24-point Golden State lead en route to shocking the reigning champion Warriors 105-108, with a last-second Harrison Barnes three-pointer proving to establish the final score.
Next Saturday, the Oklahoma City Thunder will play the Golden State Warriors for the first time this season. You may think this game is just a blip on the sports calendar, a solid NBA matchup meant to offer some small amusement to those of us looking for ways to pass the time until the Super Bowl. That assessment may…
A 4-year-old fan named Lucas showed up at Wednesday night’s Warriors game to ask if Riley Curry, the Sports Baby of 2015, would be his valentine. He had a sign and an eager expression that was just waiting to be shot down.
Once Gregg Popovich opted to sit Tim Duncan for Monday night’s matchup, we were never going to get a complete picture of the Warriors’ and Spurs’ relative abilities. But in laying waste to the Spurs 120-90, the Warriors demonstrated that even when Duncan returns, the Spurs will face an uphill slog.
Tonight’s intensely-anticipated Spurs-Warriors matchup is going Golden State’s way, and in a big way, early. Leading the charge, expectedly, is the MVP Stephen Curry. He’s singlehandedly making us jaded to his own highlights.
One of baseball’s last remaining virtues is that the maxim “Watch any baseball game, and you’ll see something you’ve never seen before” is generally true. We think it’s about time that rule be applied to any time Steph Curry is on a basketball court... or off it.
Steph Curry and the Warriors beat some ass against the Cavaliers last night. Curry scored 35 points in the laugher despite not playing the fourth quarter, but he had plenty of time to toy with the Cavs before taking a rest.
The Cleveland Cavaliers screwed the goddamn pooch. They dropped the ball. They shit the bed. They crashed and burned. They were on the ass-end of a trainwreck. They blew it.
Portland actually filed their paperwork correctly and had C.J. McCollum around for last night’s game against the Warriors, but, yeah, no, Golden State rolled easily. That’s thoroughly unsurprising, but this cool little alley-oop from Steph Curry to Andrew Bogut kind of was.
According to the invaluable Basketball-Reference, Steph Curry has scored via dunk 15 times in his NBA career. And so one might say that the answer to the question up in the headline of this blog is, “Yes, of course he can dunk, you fool. He has dunked, he is capable of dunking, he can dunk.” In fact, one might even…
24 wins in a row is as impressive of a streak as you’ll ever see to start an NBA season, but the Warriors were close to a different, sneakily difficult record last night. Had they beaten the Milwaukee Bucks, they would have secured the first 7-0 road trip in history. That stat doesn’t leap off the page the same way…
Finally, someone has beaten the Golden State Warriors this 2015-26 season—and it’s the Milwaukee Bucks, whose 108-95 win lets us go back to pretending the NBA doesn’t exist for another two weeks.
With the Warriors off to a 20-0 start under interim head coach Luke Walton, a popular topic of discussion has been who deserves credit for the historic start. Coaching-wise Luke Walton and Steve Kerr both defer, crediting the other one, while the NBA has split the baby by officially crediting the wins to Kerr but…
