Warriors may have answered a few questions

If Friday night’s preseason finale really was a dress rehearsal for the regular season — as head coach Steve Kerr indicated — we might have learned the answers to two burning questions about the Warriors during their 119-112 victory over Denver at Oracle Arena. Kerr appears locked into starting Harrison Barnes over Andre Iguodala, at least until backup point guard Shaun Livingston returns from offseason toe surgery. Kerr, who could go right down to Monday’s noon deadline to make the final cuts, played Holiday with the regular-season rotation guys, while Craft and McAdoo looked on...

Warriors’ Curry, Thompson could be NBA’s best guard combo

Though they didn’t seem to notice in Washington, D.C., Cleveland or Portland, the debate about which team had the best backcourt ended early in training camp when Jerry West said it is clearly the Warriors’ duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. “It’s nice to have two young guys like that in a backcourt that you don’t have to ever change for a long time,” said West, a member of the Warriors’ executive board. “We’re thrilled to have our backcourt.” Wizards guards Bradley Beal and John Wall, Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters and Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews all made...

Steve Kerr guides a potent Warriors attack

According to a number of experts, the Warriors will be running elements of the triangle, which gets attributed to the Bulls or the Lakers. After their first seven preseason games, the Warriors led the league in scoring (109.7), field-goal percentage (51.3) and assists (27.1), and they were third in three-point percentage (38.7). With associate head coach Alvin Gentry leading the installation, Kerr has introduced an offense that starts with the final three steps of the defense. After securing the defensive rebound, the Warriors are expected to have a three-step lead in transition offense...

Mark Jackson expects Warriors' Klay Thompson to get max deal

Former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson, now with ESPN, says Klay Thompson is the best two-way shooting guard in the world and deserves a maximum-salary contract.

Looking back at Preseason Game 7: Warriors 125, Clippers 107

It’s usually a pretty good sign for an NBA head coach when his team wins by 18 points and he’s still not happy with the performance. That was the case for Steve Kerr after the Warriors’ 125-107 over the Clippers on Tuesday night. The Warriors shot 59 percent from the floor and limited the Clippers to 38.6 percent shooting, but they were sloppy and gave up 36 points off of 28 turnovers. Kerr thought the second half was slightly better than the first, when the Warriors went into the locker room with a two-point lead. “Better effort and better focus (in the second half), but still there...
