Recap: Warriors top Clippers by scoring more points and getting help from a long lost friend named Festus Ezeli

I don't want to read too much into these Warriors pre-season games, given players are playing themselves into shape, and the new system is still being installed. I don't know how good this team will be, and tonight's game is anything but a fair representation of the Clippers and Warriors at full strength, let alone, in playoff mode. Still, it's nice to beat the Clippers any time of year, regardless if they're playing with Jared Cunningham and Spencer Hawes in the starting lineup instead of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. But heck, the Warriors balanced that out by starting Harrison Barnes...

Warriors vs. Clippers preview: A battle for preseason California bragging rights

It's preseason, but it's also the L.A. Clippers. Golden State Warriors (4-2) vs. L.A. Clippers (1-4) 7:30 p.m. PST ROARACLE Radio: KNBR 1050 AM | TV (!!!): TNT Buddy blog: Clips Nation Tom Ziller of SB Nation-NBA wrote a pretty inspiring piece about the Golden State Warriors yesterday in which he concluded by writing that fully implementing new coach Steve Kerr's offensive vision is, "...the final step for this wonderfully strange collection to break the Golden State mold and challenge for a championship."As the preseason comes to a close in Oakland this week, the Warriors are still...

Rockets best Warriors, 90-83 improve to 4-1

Rockets headed to the RGV to take on the visiting Golden State Warriors in a weekend preseason match up. I usually don't do these wrap ups for the simple reason that most Rocket games are blacked out in my area and it'd be nonsense to try and write about a game I didn't see. But Sunday's game provided a rare opportunity since it was held in the Rio Grande Valley as part of the ever-fruitful relationship between the Rockets and the RGV Vipers. The Rockets won but honestly the score and stats don't matter much to me in preseason contests. I was more interested in how the team would look after...

Warriors vs. Rockets final score: Splash Bros get night off; Dubs fall to Rockets, 90-83

Warriors vs. Rockets final score: Splash Bros get night off; Dubs fall to Rockets, 90-83

Preseason... Where Development Happens! With Steph Curry and Klay Thompson getting some rest (you could say David Lee and Andrew Bogut were "resting" too, playing only 10 mins of the 1st), the Golden State Warriors turned to their young guns for production but fell short in a 90-83 loss to the Houston Rockets. Nemanja Nedovic started at point guard while Harrison Barnes filled the forward slot once again. The Dubs started off the first quarter well, shooting 58% from the floor and holding Houston to 38% shooting. Nedovic and Barnes were utilized right from the onset and were able to score...

Warriors vs Rockets preview: A Big Man Showdown?

The Golden State Warriors will face off against the Houston Rockets in what could be an early preview to a season long big man matchup between Warriors Andrew Bogut and Rockets Dwight Howard. Left still to wonder if the Golden State Warriors loss to the Miami Heat was a regular season game or just another preseason showdown, the Warriors are set to take on the Rockets in what should be an easy day on the offensive perimeter with a bit of a test down low -- maybe. What's so special about the paint this year in Houston? According to Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon, current Rockets...

Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors preseason game preview

The Rockets take on the Warriors tonight in Hidalgo The Rockets and Warriors played three times last season. The Rockets blew out the Warriors in Houston, and took the first meeting in the Bay Area thanks to some Patrick Beverley heroics. The Warriors stole one back in their building in an OT win to stop the Rockets' 7-game winning streak. Houston was on a back-to-back, and battled back after trailing most of the game, but of course the story was how awesome Golden State was. I'm not bitter. The Warriors have looked pretty unstoppable in preseason so far. Not that it matters, but it's a...

GameStream: Heat get first preseason win with 115-108 comeback over Warriors

The Heat used a late fourth quarter run to beat the Warriors and get their first preseason win. Finally, the Miami Heat got that winning feeling. Yes, it's only preseason but given the change the Heat franchise have experienced these last four months of adjusting to a new era of Miami basketball, winning was an acceptable familiar feeling. Miami used a rapid fourth quarter rally to defeat the Golden State Warriors 115 -108. With the victory, the Miami Heat won it's first preseason game in five tires. Chris Bosh led the way with 21 points while newcomers Luol Deng and Shawne Williams added...

Golden State Warriors lose stunning heartbreaker to Miami Heat 108-115

They led the entire game and then they sort of collapsed in the fourth quarter. It's the preseason. Klay Thompson made a play that threatened to change the entire way I think about this year's Golden State Warriors and beyond. He received the ball at the three-point line, barely getting into a triple threat position because the shot he can unfurl is lethal enough in theory and actualization. He then drove right by Dwyane Wade with a left-hand dribble, keeping his shoulders dipped and lowered to the ground. There was David Lee creeping along the baseline and another bailout option on the...

Warriors vs. Heat preview: Golden State takes their preseason talents to Miami

The 4-0 Golden State Warriors aim to remain undefeated with a win against the Miami Heat. Golden State Warriors (4-0) vs. Miami Heat (0-4) Sprint Center - Kansas City, MO 5:30 p.m. PST Radio: KNBR 1050 | (Local) TV: None (?) Buddy blog: Hot Hot Hoops As much as I'd love to get the image of the last game the Golden State Warriors played against the Miami Heat out of my head, LeBron James' game-winning shot ended up producing one of the more iconic moments of the 2013-14 season and it seemed like that celebration on the floor of Oracle Arena was in every NBA ad for the remainder of the...

2014-15 Golden State Warriors NBA Blog Preview- It finally makes sense.

2014-15 Golden State Warriors NBA Blog Preview- It finally makes sense.

Making sense, but hitting the NBA's glass ceiling. There's been quite a few moves by the Golden State Warriors over the years that don't really make sense. I know what you're thinking- NEWSFLASH! STOP THE PRESSES! The Warriors didn't make sense! The decision-making in the Chris Cohan era was obviously a joke of epic proportions, but the Joe Lacob/ Bob Meyers era has had some silly misses as well (namely not amnestying Andris Biedrins, now out of the league at age 28). With the coaching staff upgrades and player pickups this offseason, the decision making finally makes sense. Making sense...

Golden State Warriors 2014-15 Preview - The Steve Kerr Era Begins

Will Steve Kerr help the Warriors advance beyond the first round of the Western Conference playoffs for the first time since 2007? Golden State of Mind - Golden State Warriors 2014-15 Preview - SBNation.com A top-5 team overall and an absolute buzzsaw of a squad when healthy, the Golden State Warriors played some gorgeous defense in 2013-14. When Bogut and Iguodala were on the court, even at sub-optimal strength, the Warriors were simply superb. Iguodala choking out opposing perimeter stars allowed Thompson to blanket point guards, shutting off the foundation of most offenses while an...

Kobe Bryant, Byron Scott not frustrated over Lakers' loss to Warriors

The Warriors obliterated the Lakers Sunday night, but Kobe Bryant and Byron Scott weren't overly concerned as Los Angeles continues it's process. That and more notes from Ontario. ONTARIO -- The Los Angeles Lakers were mopped up and down the floors of Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, but there wasn't frustration in the locker room following the game. Kobe Bryant and Byron Scott heaped praise at a Golden State Warriors team that has the luxury of continuity and elite talent rather than hanging their heads over a preseason contest. "Those guys have been together for a few years,...

Lakers Get Demolished By Warriors As Everything Goes Wrong

The Lakers were blown out by the Warriors, but at least Robert Sacre looked great. For the second straight game, the Los Angeles Lakers were utterly dominated by the Golden State Warriors, as they lost an absolutely horrendous 108-71 thrashing. The Warriors' duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson showed the world why they go by the "Splash Brothers", combining for 41 points while shooting 8-15 from beyond the arc. That high-energy, perimeter shooting display by Golden State basically killed off the older Lakers starting five, as they continually pushed the ball down the throat of the team's...

Warriors play Lakers in preseason again; blow them out again

Warriors play Lakers in preseason again; blow them out again

I can't explain why they keep playing each other. It's not exciting. Well, it sort of is when one sucks and the other doesn't and the one that doesn't is the team you like. The Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 116-75. Lol. There were times in the opening stages of last season the Golden State Warriors ran an offense somewhat similar to what's happening right now: a perfect storm of free-flowing movement and confidence running into improvisation. It ended up in Andre Iguodala midair behind-the-back passes to David Lee under the basket. It sparked a #FullSquad movement and...

Clippers at Portland pre-season: lots of work to do

The Clippers looked rusty and disinterested in their first pre-season game, a loss to the Warriors Tuesday night. It's just pre-season, but hopefully they'll look a bit sharper tonight against the Blazers. It's just pre-season: no one's going to get too upset about any loss, nor should anyone be getting too excited about wins. By the same token, I'm not going to spend a lot of time writing previews for meaningless games. The Los Angeles Clippers didn't look very good in their first pre-season game, a loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. Specifically, the Clippers looked rusty and...
