Warriors notes: Centers Andrew Bogut and Festus Ezeli come up in a big way to help beat Houston

The two hit a combined 8 of 9 shots in the first two quarters and grab 10 rebounds

Game 2 impressions – Are the Rockets dumb on defense?

-Whatever cold medicine Andrew Bogut took in game 2, I want some. -The Rockets do not have a high defensive IQ. It took them several trips for them to figure out the back picks that led to uncontested lay-ups in game one. Then they rotated poorly on Steph Curry in the first quarter that left him open for three, 3-point makes. The Warriors simply don’t make those mistakes. -The Warriors look like they are sagging off of James Harden too much. Draymond Green did that to start the second quarter and Harden hit an uncontested 15-footer. However, Harden is probably the best duel-threat offensive...

Howard hobbled, but Rockets center comes up big

In Game 2 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday, the Rockets’ center took a modest, knee-braced step toward shedding that rap. A game-time decision due to a sprained left knee, Howard responded with 19 points and 17 rebounds in a 99-98 loss to Golden State. “I just tried to play as hard as I could tonight,” said Howard, who was limited to 26 minutes in Game 1 after a first-quarter collision with teammate Josh Smith. Howard didn’t appear to be moving well early, as Warriors center Andrew Bogut got off to a fast start with two dunks and a block in the opening...

Splash Brothers’ defense helps Warriors’ hold off Rockets in Game 2

The Warriors are two wins away from advancing to the NBA Finals and six wins away from bringing home their first crown since 1975, having brushed off the Rockets’ rally attempts for a 99-98 victory in Thursday’s Game 2. After the Warriors took a 2-0 lead in front of the 130th consecutive sellout crowd at Oracle Arena, the best-of-seven Western Conference finals shifts to Houston for Game 3 on Saturday and Game 4 on Monday. An alley-oop from Draymond Green to Andrew Bogut and an inbounds pass from Stephen Curry to a streaking Klay Thompson on back-to-back possessions gave the Warriors a...

Warriors’ defensive dominance acknowledged as Draymond Green, Andrew Bogut named to All-Defensive teams

ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy calls Warriors' Bogut 'just 'another guy'

ESPN NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy says the Golden State Warriors can beat the Houston Rockets in the NBA Western Conference finals without center Andrew Bogut.

Launch party: Threes carry Warriors past Grizzlies

The Warriors mostly laugh at Charles Barkley, who says a jump-shooting team can’t win a NBA title. In showing why 474 days have passed since the last time the they lost consecutive home games, the Warriors got multiple offensive contributions, a stalwart defensive game from center Andrew Bogut and an all-around, all-world game from point guard Stephen Curry. Without defensive stopper Tony Allen (left hamstring) mucking up the Warriors’ offense, Klay Thompson went for 21 points and five assists, Andre Iguodala came off the bench for 16 points, and Harrison Barnes scored in double...

Andrew Bogut’s ribs were always fine; his left knee checked out OK, too

Bogut did grab at his right ribs a couple of times during the second half of the Warriors’ Game 4 victory over Memphis, and it was reported by multiple outlets that he had X-rays on his ribs. Whichever injury was of more concern, he played through it and had his biggest impact of the best-of-seven, Western Conference semifinal series. The adjustment left open offensively challenged Tony Allen, who was tempted into taking jump shots and was subbed out just 6 ½ minutes into the game. “If Tony Allen beats us by making five three-pointers, I think we’ll shake their hands, congratulate...

Digging into the Andrew Bogut-on-Tony Allen Matchup

Steve Kerr stumped the Grizzlies in Game 4 by matching up Andrew Bogut on Tony Allen. We discuss the next move. In Game 4, the Golden State Warriors handily dispatched the Memphis Grizzlies by a 101-84 final score. Steve Kerr's decision to assign Andrew Bogut on Tony Allen defensively was key in the win, allowing Bogut to help off liberally and muck up the Grizzlies offense. To break down what the next move might be, I roped in some GBB friends, Andrew Ford and Matt Hrdlicka. *** Kevin Yeung (@KevinHFY): It seems like an obvious adjustment now, but putting his rim protector on Tony Allen...

Warriors’ Andrew Bogut undergoes X-rays on ribs and gets good news

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Warriors center Andrew Bogut underwent X rays on his ribs that were negative, according to the team after its 101-84 win against Memphis in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals. Bogut, who played 30 minutes, had… Continue Reading →The post Warriors’ Andrew Bogut undergoes X-rays on ribs and gets good news appeared first on Inside the Warriors.

Warriors beat Memphis to even series 2-2

The MVP returned to form, and the Warriors’ coaching staff made the most impactful adjustment of the series to win Game 4 101-84 on Monday at FedExForum and even the series 2-2. Game 5 of the teams’ best-of-seven, Western Conference semifinal series is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Oracle Arena. After Curry made just 4 of 21 three-point attempts in Game 2 and 3 losses, he put up 33 points on 11-of-22 shooting, along with eight rebounds and five assists to fix an offense that seemed to have lost all of its rhythm and flow. Andrew Bogut had nine rebounds, four assists, three...

Giannis Antetokounmpo plans to spend his summer honing his post moves and three point shot

Dear Rest of the NBA: BE AFRAID. Every young player talks about getting better in the offseason, but any fan who's been around a while knows that some skills just never come. Remember Andrew Bogut's mid-range jumper, Luc Mbah a Moute's corner three or John Henson's right hand? Yeah, neither do I. Still, Giannis Antetokounmpo has proven to be more than just a talker in the two years since he landed in Milwaukee, which is why we should probably be paying some attention when he talks about what he's planning to do next with his ever-evolving game. As part of his ongoing blog series at...

Mark Jackson still taking shots at his old team

While working ABC’s broadcast of Game 1 in the Western Conference semifinal series between the Warriors and Grizzlies on Sunday, Mark Jackson popped off a series of covert zingers. Jackson has had a season-long back-and-forth with Warriors center Andrew Bogut, and when the big man slammed home a first-quarter lob from Stephen Curry, Jackson saw another opening. Oklahoma City small forward Kevin Durant will become a free agent in the summer of 2016, the same time that David Lee’s contract comes off the Warriors’ books and when the salary cap is expected to jump because of the new TV...
