The Warriors Ran A Beautiful Play For An Alley-Oop Last Night

Played well, basketball is a spectacularly beautiful game. Despite having a 9-2 record, the Golden State Warriors offense has frequently been bogged down by careless turnovers. The team has a trigger-happy reputation, but it's actually their defense—tied for best in the league with the Spurs—that has won them most of… » 11/22/14 6:55pm Yesterday 6:55pm

The Warriors Might Actually Play Some Offense This Year. Thank God.

You'd think the mere presence of a shooter and playmaker like Steph Curry would guarantee you a top 10 offense. Last year, you would've thought wrong. Despite surrounding Curry with Klay Thompson, Swiss Army Knife Andre Iguodala, and a couple of skilled big men in David Lee and Andrew Bogut, Mark Jackson's Warriors… » 10/28/14 10:09am 10/28/14 10:09am

Steph Curry Is Not Trying To Mess With Kenneth Faried

Stephen Curry was putting on a nice little run of dunks before last night's Blue-White scrimmage, but then Kenneth Faried one-upped him with a between-the-legs dunk. Curry, who was watching from behind the three-point line, makes like he's gonna give it a whirl but thinks better of it, cooly draining a three instead. » 8/02/14 5:20pm 8/02/14 5:20pm

Stephen Curry's Numbers Are As Unlikely And Wonderful As Stephen Curry

Take a look at the two charts below. If you want to understand the unique appeal of someone like Stephen Curry—a player on whom both the basketball romantics and the quants agree, a guy who represents a rare intersection of narrative and analytics—there is no better place to start. » 10/23/13 2:50pm 10/23/13 2:50pm

Klay Thompson Does A Damn Good Steph Curry Impersonation

Game 2 goes to Golden State, on the backs of an unconscious Klay Thompson and some crucial makes from Steph Curry. If not for a once-in-a-decade San Antonio comeback, they would be up 2-0. They should be. But the what-ifs don't matter if one what-if is legit—if the Warriors, on the strength of their fearsome… » 5/09/13 9:08am 5/09/13 9:08am

Stephen Curry Finally Makes His Playoff Splash

Last night's Warriors-Nuggets game ended the way you'd expect it to end when the Nuggets play atrocious defense and the Warriors shoot somewhere around 125 percent from the floor. But the bigger factor–bless his heart and his shaky ankles–was Stephen Curry finally getting a chance to show us what he's made of on a big… » 4/24/13 10:45am 4/24/13 10:45am

Stephen Curry Pulls Off Two Sublime Crossovers, Is Brilliant

With respect to the shoving party that spilled into the first row, the most entertaining thing about last night's Warriors-Pacers game was Stephen Curry crossing up his opponents with extreme prejudice. His first victim was George Hill, whose valiant attempt to play good transition defense ended with him falling onto… » 2/27/13 10:05am 2/27/13 10:05am

This Stephen Curry Bounce Pass Is Just Vicious

Earlier today Stephen Curry executed what can objectively be described as a stunning play during the Golden State Warriors 106-99 defeat of the Los Angeles Clippers. In the fourth quarter, Curry fired a half-court bounce pass that split two defenders and caught Jarrett Jack in stride for a reverse layup that had no… » 1/21/13 10:50pm 1/21/13 10:50pm
