The Golden State Warriors Are Your 2015 NBA Champions

This is the most sportswritery thing I’ll ever write, but all season long the Golden State Warriors won as a team. Sure, Stephen Curry was the MVP of the league, but he was far from a one man band. Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andrew Bogut all won league-wide awards. After two stagnant season, Harrison Barnes… »6/17/15 12:07am6/17/15 12:07am

The Golden State Warriors Advance To The NBA Finals

Despite the 104-90 victory, the Warriors didn’t make it easy on themselves. They shot only 41%—and a putrid 23% in the first quarter—and never got their three-point shooting on track. Andrew Bogut picked up two early fouls, and Klay Thompson picked up five pretty stupid fouls (and had to go back to the locker room… »5/28/15 12:42am5/28/15 12:42am

First Quarter Offensive Explosion Propels Rockets Past Warriors

As well as the Warriors played in Game 3, the Rockets played even better in the first quarter of Game 4. Besides James Harden, the Rockets starters are all inconsistent offensive performers. But in the first quarter the Rockets went 17-21, 8-9 from three. James Harden scored “only” 10 of the Rockets’s 45 points, as… »5/26/15 12:31am5/26/15 12:31am

Calgary Seemingly Screwed By No-Goal Call, Ties Game Late Anyway

Down 2-3 with about six minutes left in the third period against the Ducks, the Flames really could have used a goal. And they seemingly got one on this shot by Sam Bennett that looked to barely cross the line before being kicked out by goalie Frederik Andersen. But the call on the ice was no goal, and after a review… »5/06/15 12:27am5/06/15 12:27am

The Wizards Are Figuring It Out, And The Raptors Aren't Good Enough

“That is a bad man, number 34.” Those are the words color commentator Doris Burke used to describe Paul Pierce’s game-sealing three-pointer against the Toronto Raptors last night. In just thirty seconds the Raptors cut an eight point deficit to three, and if the Wizards had come up empty, the Raptors would’ve had a… »4/25/15 11:34am4/25/15 11:34am

Down 20 Late, The Warriors Top The Pelicans In A Bananas Game

That might be the most incredible basketball game I have ever witnessed. As late as six minutes into the fourth quarter, the Pelicans held a 17-point lead over the Warriors. The Warriors weren’t just getting beat, they were getting comprehensively outplayed by the eight seed. And then in six quick minutes, the… »4/24/15 1:58am4/24/15 1:58am

The Golden State Warriors Are Going To Win The NBA Finals

If you are a longtime basketball fan who can’t shake the notion of the Warriors as a sad-sack franchise, or if you pay too much attention to Charles Barkley-class pundits’s ramblings about jump shooting and experience, this is going to sound crazy to you, but let’s get straight to it: the Golden State Warriors are… »4/18/15 11:49am4/18/15 11:49am

Report: 11 Of 12 Patriots-Supplied Footballs Were Underinflated

There has been two days worth of smoke surrounding Ballghazi, and now it looks like there might actually be a fire. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the NFL's investigation into whether the Patriots deflated footballs during Sunday's AFC Championship Game has found that 11 out of the 12 balls they supplied were… »1/20/15 11:30pm1/20/15 11:30pm

Doug Baldwin Is Probably Still Looking For Doubters To Call Out 

Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin made a brief and profane cameo in the madness immediately following Jermaine Kearse's game-winning touchdown catch, but that was just the start of his postgame highlight reel. From there, he went on to call out the NFL Network's Deion Sanders for being a punk-ass hater, and then… »1/19/15 9:32am1/19/15 9:32am

Giants Ride Their First Big Inning of the NLCS To Extra-Innings Win

The Giants offense has struggled lately. In winning Game 1 of the NLCS, they scored three runs on a single, error, and sacrifice fly. In losing Game 2, they scored four runs on a ground out, single, single, and walk. Across the two games they left 19 men on base to the Cardinals 11, unable to turn a steady trickle… »10/14/14 9:11pm10/14/14 9:11pm

Cardinals Fans Get Ugly In Clash With Ferguson Protesters

This guy right here, the one with "I am Darren Wilson" taped onto the back of his Cardinals jersey—an homage to the Ferguson, Mo., police officer who shot an unarmed teenager named Mike Brown to death in August—was at the Cardinals game last night. He, along with many other Cardinals fans, clashed with a small group… »10/07/14 10:04am10/07/14 10:04am
