Warriors beat Thunder, 120-111: Andrew Bogut Dundee-fended Oracle Arena

It was do or die for the Golden State Warriors. Shout out to the people old enough to catch that reference. First Half For the first time in weeks, the Golden State Warriors opened the game looking like a 73-win juggernaut. Andrew Bogut, welcome back to the NBA. This game was all about the big Aussie, and he (finally) delivered. After looking gimpy, tired and slow for a solid four games, Bogut was back to his dominant self. Although casual fans around the world know the Warriors for their big three, the fact remains that their two All-NBA caliber defensive role players (Bogut and Andre...

NBA Western Conference Finals 2016: Warriors stave off elimination, win Game 5 120-111

In the first elimination game under Steve Kerr, the Warriors responded and beat the Thunder 120-111. Deep breaths, Warriors fans. Deep breaths and golf claps. The Warriors are heading back to Oklahoma City with new life. Sure, they could get blown out in Game 6, but now there's hope. If they could win...well, hey now. For now, it's just one game at a time.

NBA Western Conference Finals Game 5: Warriors lead 58-50 at the half

The Warriors came out strong, but the Thunder will not go quietly into the night. Well, things have looked promising. Stephen Curry came out and had a few flurries. Draymond Green seemed like the player he was pre-#NutKickgate, and the Warriors lead by eight points at the half. However, the Thunder will not go away. They are a tenacious, irascible crew. So far? Game MVP goes to Andrew Bogut, who has been playing huge, impacting shots and changing the flow both offensively and defensively. Bogut looks like a totally different player. On top of all he's done ... he's moving SO much...

Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson each selected to an All-NBA team

Steph is on the 1st team, Draymond on the 2nd, and Klay on the 3rd. This the first time the Warriors have ever had a trio of players selected to All-NBA teams. The NBA released the list of All-NBA teams, and there were a few surprises. Anthony Davis did not make a team. DeAndre Jordan made the 1st team. But, and more to our site, the Warriors did something they've never done before in franchise history: place three players on All-NBA teams.

Golden State Warriors strategy must change to stay alive in 2016 Western Conference Finals

The Thunder have had their way with the Warriors thus far in the 2016 Western Conference Finals. Russell Westbrook and (sigh) Andre Roberson have inflicted a lot of the pain, while the Warriors haven’t helped themselves with reckless turnovers and sloppy play. With Game 4 looking a lot like Game 3, Coach Kerr and company need a new strategy to keep the series alive in Game 5. Here are some ideas. Game 4 of the 2016 Western Conference Finals resulted in another brutal loss in which the Golden State Warriors' offense struggled to function and its defense was manhandled. In the wake of two...

Draymond Green and Kawhi Leonard highlight NBA's All-Defensive First Team

Kawhi finished a unanimous first teamer, while Draymond received five second team votes. For the past two seasons, Draymond Green and Kawhi Leonard have battled for the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year award, with Kawhi winning both times. Now, the two defensive superstars headline the NBA's All-Defensive First Team, with Leonard narrowly edging out Green in terms of total points, as well as first team votes. 2 notes: 1) No Lakers even received a vote, which is hilarious. #DefensiveCoach2) LeBron not on either team.

NBA Western Conference Finals: The Warriors aren't quite dead yet

How the movie 'Hook' offers a silver lining for Warriors fans. So far, the Oklahoma City Thunder have had the two best players in this series. The Thunder are playing harder, they are playing with more fire, they are bigger, they are faster. After last night's shellacking in Oklahoma City, most sane people feel that the series will be over either tomorrow, or Saturday, when the teams return to Chesapeake Energy Arena. But, BUT...The Warriors are still alive. For now. It is strange to think of a 73 win team feeling like an underdog, but we are there. If you'd been in a coma since...

Kobe Bryant texted Draymond Green after the Warriors loss

Motivational Mamba got in the outspoken forward's ear after his team lost game four. The Golden State Warriors lost game four of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night, falling to a 3-1 deficit in their series with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Warriors were heavily favored to both win the series and repeat as NBA champions following a historic 73-9 regular season, but their quest to defend their title has been stifled against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. Following the loss that left Golden State on the verge of a disappointing postseason elimination, a recently retired player who...

The world weighs in on the status of Steph Curry

Steph Curry's health is brought into the limelight as the Golden State Warriors prepare for a must win game 5 in the Western Conference Finals. The Golden State Warriors are in a situation they have yet to experience under head coach Steve Kerr. Win or go home. Oklahoma City is making Golden State look like a mirage of the team who won an NBA record 73 regular season games. Outside of the Warriors' game 2 victory, the NBA's first unanimous MVP has been anything but himself in the Western Conference Finals. His game 4 performance was one to forget as he recorded more turnovers (six) than he...

NBA Playoffs 2016: Oklahoma City Thunder's Enes Kanter could have been the difference maker against Golden State Warriors - no really!

Cheaters never win, except in the NBA Love him or hate him, former Utah Jazz #3 draft pick Enes Kanter could have been a difference maker in the Western Conference Finals. No. I mean it. Lemme explain. It's not really about what Enes Kanter can actually do for the Oklahoma City Thunder. No, not at all. It's about what Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green did to him. Essentially, Draymond tripped him up during their Game 4 loss, and apparently, should have been called for a Flagrant foul. If he was to receive another one he is supposed to miss his next game. His next game would...

Recap: Same problems push Warriors to the brink

Turnovers, fouls, and rebounding issues plagued the Warriors in similar ways to the third game of the series. The Warriors haven't looked comfortable for most of the series, and still have no answer to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, losing 118-94. But most importantly, Stephen Curry isn't whole. I'll keep this recap short. The Thunder are still killing the Warriors on the glass and racking up fouls at the rim.  Draymond Green, the foundation of the Warriors' unique small ball style, is playing the worst he's played all season.Secondary role players like Andre Roberson and Dion Waiters...

Looking at the Brighter Side - Keys to Game 4

Now that the dust settles from Game 3's blowout, the Warriors are set to return to the court Tuesday night to take back the series. We go over a few reasons all hope is not lost The Warriors return to the court in OKC on Tuesday night to take on the Thunder, and not a moment too soon. As a player of pickup basketball, I know the best thing to do after you get dunked on: you pick the ball up, throw it back inbounds and get set for the next play. The quicker you get the ball back in, the less time the guy who just threw down in your face has to celebrate before you put him back on defense and...
