Extended Recap: Warriors trounce Clippers 115-98 — what rivalry?

Warriors stormed into this road trip with a 37-19 first quarter and never looked back, as they stifled the Clippers on defense all game. It’s important to remember that this is just one game, sure. But even within that framework, the Warriors passed the test with a resounding A+. It was all Warriors in the first quarters against the Clippers in Los Angeles. The 18-point advantage they earned during that period was more than enough to see them through the Clippers’ best counter-punch — sometimes literally so. This makes it seven straight wins against Pacific Division opponents and...

Warriors great Rick Barry reflects on late announcer Bill King

LOS ANGELES — It wasn’t until Rick Barry retired from basketball in 1980 that he fully appreciated the man who called his Warriors games. Barry came to appreciate the nuances of King’s style: the excitement in his voice after a big moment; the way he verbalized plays as they unfolded; how he always seemed to find the right word no matter the situation. Perhaps best known as the longtime voice of the Raiders and A’s, King called Warriors games from 1962 to 1983.

Kevin Durant discusses NBA rivalries, friendship with DeAndre Jordan

Kevin Durant discusses NBA rivalries, friendship with DeAndre Jordan LOS ANGELES — On July 4, after Kevin Durant announced his intention to sign with the Warriors, the first congratulatory text message he received came from a member of one of his biggest Western-Conference threats. “He just told me that he was proud of me,” Durant recalled Wednesday of that message from Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. During shootaround at Staples Center, Durant discussed a host of topics: rivalries in the NBA, his summer meeting with the Clippers and, of course, his friendship with...

Warriors to donate additional $75,000 to Oakland Fire relief

LOS ANGELES — Golden State players and coaches are donating $75,000 to the ongoing relief efforts for the fatal Oakland warehouse fire, the team announced Wednesday afternoon. “As a team that calls the Bay Area our home, we are all devastated by this tragedy that took place right in our community,” forward Draymond Green said in a news release. In addition to the $75,000 pledge, the team has already donated $50,000 to the Unity Council in the Fruitvale district, a nonprofit organization that helps low-income families in that community. Thirty-six people were killed after a fire,...

Durant, Anthony named co-USA Basketball Male Athletes of the Year

Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony have been named co-recipients of the 2016 USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year Award. During the Rio Olympics, Durant and Anthony led Team USA to an 8-0 record and a gold medal. “The leadership of Carmelo and Kevin on the 2016 team was crucial and obvious to anyone who watched the team play or interact,” said Jim Tooley, USA Basketball CEO/Executive Director. At the Rio Olympics, Durant shot 57.8 percent from the field, 58.1 percent from three-point range and 81.3 percent from the foul line.

Thompson’s 60-point night reinforces his value to Warriors

In March 2012, during a halftime ceremony to honor Warriors great Chris Mullin, the Oracle Arena crowd rained boos down on team majority owner Joe Lacob. At the root of that awkward scene was a trade the previous week in which Golden State sent popular shooting guard Monta Ellis to the Bucks for center Andrew Bogut. In becoming the first player in the shot-clock era to score 60 points in fewer than 30 minutes, Thompson reinforced why prioritizing him over Ellis was one of the wisest decisions in franchise history. Thompson owns the league record for points scored in a quarter (37) and...

Warriors: More to come from Thompson?

Warriors: More to come from Thompson? If past is prologue, Klay Thompson should have a pretty good game Wednesday night against the Clippers. On Monday, Thompson became only the third Golden State Warrior to score at least 55 points in a game, joining Rick Barry (who did it three times) and Purvis Short (twice). In the next games after their respective outbursts, Barry and Short combined to average 26.4 points — a number held down by Barry’s 16 points in the 1974 season finale, which followed his Warriors’ West Coast-record 64 a night earlier. Short scored 30 points following both...

Klay Thompson erupts for 60 points as Warriors rout Pacers

With Pacers guard Jeff Teague at the foul line Monday night, a capacity crowd of 19,596 stood in unison as it celebrated the man of the night: KLAY! Klay Thompson had just nailed a wide-open three-pointer in the corner to set a new career-high with 54 points. Because the Warriors were well on their way to a 142-106 rout of Indiana, Thompson was free to sit for the final 13-plus minutes. A player who has built his legacy on swishing jumpers was free to focus on his signature skill as he recorded two rebounds, one assist, no turnovers and a plus-37 in 29 minutes. Perhaps the best...

Steve Kerr supports NBA moving up start of regular season

Steve Kerr supports NBA moving up start of regular season Count Warriors head coach Steve Kerr among the supporters of moving up the start of the NBA regular season. “I can’t remember who first proposed it, but I think it makes perfect sense,” Kerr said Monday night before Golden State’s game against the Pacers at Oracle Arena. There is a “strong likelihood” that the new collective bargaining agreement — the deadline for which is Dec. 15 — will include moving the start of the 2017-18 season up a week to 10 days, according to a recent ESPN report. To accommodate that...

Kevin Durant calls Pacers’ Paul George his ‘favorite player’

Kevin Durant calls Pacers’ Paul George his ‘favorite player’ Because when the Warriors host the Pacers on Monday night, Kevin Durant will not only match up against one of his elite counterparts. “He’s my favorite player in the league,” Durant said of George at shootaround. Unlike Durant, a prodigy groomed for greatness since grade school, George was the prototypical late-bloomer. A lightly touted prospect coming out of Knight High School outside Los Angeles, he spent two seasons at Fresno State before the Pacers took him 10th overall in the 2010 NBA Draft. The two became...

Warriors game day: Will healthier Pacers test Golden State?

Will healthier Pacers test Golden State? Steve Kerr, 3rd season with Warriors (157-27 with Warriors and overall); Nate McMillan, 1st season with Pacers (10-10 with Pacers and 488-462 overall) Warriors (17-3); Pacers (10-10) Pacers: PG Jeff Teague (15.1 ppg, 6.7 apg), SG Monta Ellis (10.5 ppg, 4.0 apg), SF Paul George (20.4 ppg, 6.8 rpg), PF Thaddeus Young (11.9 ppg, 6.2 rpg), C Myles Turner (14.8 ppg, 7.5 rpg) Pacers injury report: C Kevin Seraphin (sore left knee) is questionable. How will the Warriors follow up Saturday’s torrid shooting? In its rout of Phoenix, Golden State shot...

Kevin Durant not only scoring big but scoring efficiently

Twenty games into his inaugural Warriors season, Durant not only leads his team with 27.3 points per game but leads his team — and the entire NBA — in scoring efficiently. Durant ranked seventh in the league in points per game and eighth in field-goal percentage (56.2) entering Sunday’s games. The only other players in the top 10 in scoring to also rank among the top 30 in field-goal percentage were New Orleans’ Anthony Davis (No. 1 in scoring and No. 21 in field-goal percentage through Saturday) and the Warriors’ Stephen Curry (No. 8 in scoring, No. 29 in field-goal...

Warriors bounce back with 138-109 rout of Suns

Because Golden State already boasted a comfortable lead, the Shaqtin’ a Fool MVP could chuckle at his latest blooper. Stephen Curry (31 points on 15 shots), Klay Thompson (26 points) and Kevin Durant (20 points, nine rebounds, three blocks) paced five Golden State players in double figures. Two nights after struggling from beyond the arc, they made 14 of their 21 three-point attempts. The Suns were within striking distance until the final seconds of their Oct. 30 loss to the Warriors in Phoenix. “When he does that, it’s our night,” Golden State VP of communications Raymond Ridder...
