Recap: Warriors 16-game winning streak halted by Grizzlies in 105-98 loss

In a battle of two Western Conference powers, the Golden State Warriors were put to the test against a gritty Memphis Grizzlies squad. In the end, the Warriors fell short to the Grizzlies despite a 4th quarter rally. The Golden State Warriors have caught some breaks during their 16-game winning streak. In their overtime win over the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis sat out with a chest injury and the Warriors managed to escape big performances from Ryan Anderson and Jrue Holiday. Against an experienced Memphis Grizzlies team, the Golden State Warriors faced their toughest challenge yet...

Stirring the Pot – Why Chemistry Matters for the Golden State Warriors

The Warriors are winning - and that comes from a great formula so far for success. Can the chemistry experiment continue through a long season that will only get tougher? Winning a championship is the product of a collection of factors all coming together to product a winning output. Such a large challenge doesn't happen by luck (but some luck is needed on your way). It's the small stuff, combined with the big stuff that has you hoisting the trophy at the end of the year. And it doesn't happen to everyone - unlike football or baseball, only a very few teams have been able to win the NBA...

The Warriors are red-hot, but they'll come back to earth

The Golden State Warriors have been far and away the best team in the NBA so far this season, but they'll come back to earth at some point, because that's how this works. Does it seem as if the Golden State Warriors are invincible and the Los Angeles Clippers are already hopelessly behind in the standings? The Clippers have won two straight Pacific Division titles and were presumed to be the favorites again this season, but with a little over a quarter of the season gone, the Warriors are the best team not only in the Division but in the entire NBA and hold a five game lead in the loss...

2014-15 NBA Power Rankings: Warriors still on top, Rockets, Grizzlies right behind

The Golden State Warriors remain on top in this week's edition of the Peachtree Hoops Power Rankings but the Memphis Grizzlies and Houston Rockets remain close. 1.      Golden State Warriors: So I think for fun the Warriors should be entered as the West's All-Star team. 2.      Houston Rockets: The Rockets might be better than I thought. 3.      Memphis Grizzlies: They almost lost to Philly, but they refused to do so. 4.      Portland Trail Blazers: Easily the best contender that still managed to lose a game to the T-Wolves. 5.      San Antonio Spurs: Do you...

Sacramento Kings fire Mike Malone; Warriors sip Kermit's tea

The Sacramento Kings randomly fired Mike Malone because of strategic decisions, personal problems, I have no idea? On late Sunday evening, after the Golden State Warriors squeaked by the New Orleans Pelicans in overtime to claim their 83425th win in a row, something totally unforeseen happened. It had nothing to do with the Warriors - on the surface. Sacramento has fired coach Mike Malone, league sources told Yahoo Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) December 15, 2014 First thought: hahahaha Sacramento Kings gon Sacramento Kings. Here is the full story. Second thought: Let's...

Warriors vs. Pelicans recap: Stephen Curry, Draymond Green clutch for Golden State in 128-122 OT win at New Orleans

Character win written all over this one as the Golden State Warriors were not ready to lose in their 128-122 overtime win against the New Orleans Pelicans. Let me take you back to the fear and loathing you felt in the 4th quarter of the Golden State Warriors' game against the New Orleans Pelicans tonight. Our Warriors were very very close to losing tonight. But you can chalk up this gritty 128-122 overtime victory to three things: Steve Kerr telling our guys to get easy buckets and get to the line? Great team defense in OT. Clutch OT offense from Steph Curry and Draymond Green. (Q1)...

Preview: Warriors going for 16th consecutive win at Pelicans

After dominating nearly the entire game in Dallas yesterday en route to their 15th win in a row, the Warriors are back at it in New Orleans, looking to extend the franchise-record streak to 16 wins -- and ten consecutive on the road. This is a trap game. The kind good teams may drop more than once in a season. The kind great teams win every time. And the kind that historically fantastic teams rip the hearts out of the other team right from the start. The Warriors have a chance to be a historically fantastic team this season, as they have gotten off to a 20-2 start. 20-2!!! Only eleven...

3 things we learned from Warriors 105, Mavericks 98

The Golden State Warriors dismantled the Mavericks in the first quarter of Saturday's game. Here's a few takeaways. The Mavericks tipped off against the Warriors in an early game, played at 1 p.m. in the American Airlines Center, and they looked like they were still asleep in the first quarter. While a strong fourth quarter narrowed the Golden State lead to seven, it felt like the Warriors were in control the entire game. Here's a few things we learned. A supreme splash Coming into Saturday afternoon's game against the Golden State Warriors, the Mavericks' backcourt was much maligned...

Warriors vs. Mavericks final score: Golden State plays championship defense in Dallas to win 105-98

While the Warriors are usually credited for their high pace and electrifying offense, they stifled the league's highest scoring team with equally impressive defense. That's exactly the way you want to wake up on a Saturday morning to see the Golden State Warriors play. Heading into a road contest against the Dallas Mavericks, the Dubs had won 14-straight contests. They'd get their 15th on the year in an easy 105-98 win against the Mavs where defense was the order of the day. Stephen Curry continued his improved assist to turnover ratio leading the Warriors with a game high 29 points, and...

Three Bomb Voyage! Warriors hit the road to take on Mav's.

Saturday's early matchup features one of the best shooting teams from deep and the league's worst at defending the three ball. Get your popcorn ready, this could get u-g-l-y. 14 straight, and today the Golden State Warriors will look to make it number 15. The Dubs will face off against the Dallas Mavericks who are currently ranked sixth in the ridiculously competitive western conference. Dallas has a record of 17 wins and seven L's while the Warriors record stands at a league best 19-2. This will be the first meeting of the year for the two clubs, and the Warriors will seek to improve upon...

The cost of misusing advanced statistics

Advanced metrics have allowed fans and media to follow the NBA closer than ever. At the same time it's opening doors for misinterpretation and misunderstandings about the game itself. In the modern era of the extinct center, stretch four's, 7-foot point guards and undersized shooting guards, the idea behind extrapolating a player's efficiency by way of endless metrics is tiring, becomes convoluted and often-times misses the point. Perhaps the evolution of advanced stats and being able to track everything from overall point totals to if a player scores more with ankle or regular length...

Racism not a factor in Golden State Warriors firing Mark Jackson

Firing 1 white coach, hiring 3 black coaches, firing 2 black coaches, and hiring 1 white coach is racist? Racism in the year 2014 is unfortunately an ugly and still very real part of virtually every aspect of American politics, economics, and culture. There's no doubt about that. However, racism in Mark Jackson's firing from the Golden State Warriors head coach position doesn't seem like a factor. It's embarrassing to admit it, but the "inspiration" for this piece comes from an irresponsible and pointless article from Ric Bucher: NBA Insider: Criticism of Mark Jackson May Not Be Simply a...

Warriors change San Francisco arena design

The Warriors' team of architects released updated drafts of the arena yesterday, after the original infamous "toilet arena" drafts were met with a cascade of criticism. I would say that's a good idea. After many people ridiculed the original proposed design for the yet-to-be-constructed San Francisco arena, derisively saying that looked like a toilet, architects have scrapped that design and modified the arena blueprint. "We're trying to flush the toilet bowl forever out of people's consciousness," Warriors arena consultant Jesse Blout said on Wednesday. A few months ago, Manica...

Draymond Green's everything propels Golden State Warriors to win over Houston Rockets

The game was a little boring, a little slow, and going a little in the Houston Rockets' favor. Then Draymond Green started running at the center position. It got out of hand real quick. A close game ended in a 105-93 Warriors victory. "Draymond (Green) is obviously capable of guarding pretty much anybody." Steve Kerr is usually eloquent in his postgame answers. He'll take a short question about some random pick-and-roll coverage in the second quarter and run off several tangents before you can even click record on your phone. On Draymond Green against the Houston Rockets, Kerr kept going...

Shorthanded Rockets Fight, But Fall to the Golden State Warriors, 105-93

The Rockets were scrappy (then sloppy at the end) in their game tonight against the Golden State Warriors, but couldn't close the game out. The Houston Rockets entered tonight's game against the league leading Golden State Warriors down two starters and three bench players.  Not just any starters, their starting bigs in Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones, key bench players in Isaiah Canaan and Kostas Papanikalaou, then finally Francisco Garcia. Despite all this the Rockets actually spent a good portion of the second half in the lead or within a point or three. That is until the final three...

Warriors vs Rockets Preview

Can the Warriors keep the winning streak alive against another Western Conference contender? It's time for something to give at the top of the Western Conference standings. Right now, the Dallas Mavericks are in 7th despite having a 16-6 record, which roughly translates to a 60-win season. That's just insane, and it explains how the Warriors can be on a 13-game win streak and only be leading the 7th seed by 3 games. How can some of these teams separate themselves from the others? By beating them. The Warriors hope to start beating the best of the West on Wednesday night at home against the...

Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors game preview

The Rockets look to avenge an early-season loss to the Warriors when they head to the Bay Area to take on Golden State tonight. This is supposed to be a battle of the titans, but injuries have made a mockery of this game. The Warriors are playing incredible basketball. Fourth in points, first in assists, third in rebounds, and fifth in points allowed per game. While those are antiquated stats in this analytics-driven world we occupy, those are kinda sorta incredible numbers anyway. The Warriors have only had David Lee for 7 minutes this season. And they've won 13 games in a row. It's hard...
