Warriors’ McAdoo makes most of playing time in win over Houston

HOUSTON — Late in the first quarter Friday night, Stephen Curry found James Michael McAdoo in the post for a two-handed dunk. “It felt good,” said McAdoo, who finished Golden State’s 125-108 win over the Rockets with a season-high eight points. With center David West out with a thumb injury, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr made McAdoo his first big man off the bench Friday. Stuck behind West, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee and, at times, even Anderson Varejao on the depth chart, McAdoo relied on extra conditioning work and post-practice games of three-on-three to stay in shape. Kerr...

Warriors overpower Rockets with 3-point ... defense

HOUSTON — Seven years ago, after a group of venture capitalists bought the Warriors, the franchise adopted a peculiar philosophy: Three-point shooting could be foundational to a championship team. In Friday night’s 125-108 rout of the Rockets, a team on pace to break Golden State’s record for treys in a season, Golden State reinforced the importance of having stingy perimeter defense. Seven weeks after hitting 14 three-pointers in a double-overtime win over the Warriors, Houston finished just 7-of-35 from beyond the arc. In the third quarter, with the Rockets going 0-of-10 from...

49ers radio analyst: York will feel more comfortable with Shanahan

49ers radio analyst: Kyle Shanahan, 37, is in line to become the second-youngest NFL head coach and his youth makes him a peer of 49ers CEO Jed York. At least it is in the estimation of 49ers radio analyst Tim Ryan, who provided interesting insight on KNBR today regarding York’s relationships with previous head coaches Jim Harbaugh, 53, and Chip Kelly, 53. Not afraid, but ‘Man, should I ask this question to this guy?’ Because those guys walk around like you ask them anything it’s ‘I’m going to shut you down.’ If I ask my coaches, ‘What is a football made out of?’ -- he...

Steve Kerr sees similarities between James Harden, Joe Dumars

Coming up with a historical comparison for James Harden, however, is a tricky proposition. Unlike other throwback-style players, who rely on intellect more than supreme athleticism, Harden has almost no midrange game. Before Friday night’s Warriors-Rockets matchup at Toyota Center, Golden State head coach Steve Kerr provided an intriguing comparison for Harden. Though similar in strength and savviness, Dumars and Harden are hardly obvious parallels. Dumars never averaged more than 23.5 points, 5.7 assists or 2.8 rebounds in a season. Harden’s eye-popping averages — 28.9 points,...

Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton still valuable for Sharks

How quickly those three years have passed, and here we are again wondering what San Jose will do with a pair of aging franchise pillars who seem to have plenty of hockey left in their 37-year-old bodies?

Thornton has appeared in all but four games since re-signing and has assisted on 156 goals in addition to scoring 43 for 199 points. Thornton averaged nearly a point per game before the extension (1,167 points in 1,176 career games) and has dipped slightly to...
