Warriors flex their offensive efficiency in blowout of Suns

Warriors flex their offensive efficiency in blowout of Suns

Golden State posts their best shooting game in 24 years. OAKLAND, Calif. — It doesn’t take a basketball savant to figure out that Kevin Durant would add an additional layer of scoring capability to the Golden State Warriors. Although many feared that KD would either not have enough shots to find his rhythm or take shots away from splash brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. But now 20 games into the season, it is safe to say that neither the former or the latter are true. The Warriors scored 138 points while shooting 62.8 % from the field, an NBA high for any team this season. In...

Extended Recap: Warriors (17-3) overwhelm 6-14 Suns, 138-109

Extended Recap: Warriors (17-3) overwhelm 6-14 Suns, 138-109

Splash Brothers go for 57, but Kevin Durant was the best player on the floor. The Warriors came into this game still stinging from the painful double-overtime loss to the Houston Rockets. Although Golden State probably didn’t need any extra motivation, it should be noted that the Warriors had not lost two games in a row in over 105 regular-season contests. The home team limped out of the gate early on, and it was a symphony of ugliness: careless turnovers, some bad defensive rotations and general malaise. The Warriors stumbled in their efforts to keep pace with the Suns early. But after...

Quick Recap: Warriors defeat Suns in blowout, 138-109

The Splash Brothers reigned supreme as they rained shots down on Oracle Arena. The Golden State Warriors were dominant against the Phoenix Suns tonight, winning 138-109. It started as a somber night at Oracle Arena, with the Warriors holding a pre-game moment of silence for those affected by the devastating fire at a converted Oakland warehouse last night that claimed many lives. The team announced they will donate $50,000 to those affected and donate the proceeds of the 50/50 raffle from the game with the Unity Council. The stars of the night were the Splash Brothers, with Stephen Curry...

“Just a Girl” in America

“Just a Girl” in America

An open letter to Charles Barkley about why his comments meant as an insult against the Golden State Warriors were instead an affront to all women and our continued struggle for equal rights. Dear Chuck: By now, everyone has heard your so-called jokes and laughed along with you, repudiated them or looked the other way. I didn’t laugh because the comments were not funny, and other journalists have their repudiation game on point and already have put you and your chuckling minions in check. But I refuse to look the other way when someone with a platform as broad as yours uses airtime to...

Preview: Warriors hope to start a new win streak versus the Suns

Phoenix kept things close with Golden State in the prior two meetings this season. The Dubs would do well to cut down on turnovers against this young team that likes to run. The Warriors hope to get the bad taste of Thursday night’s loss out of their mouths as they face the Suns for the third time in this young season. Addressing recent turnover issues could be a key in taking on a Phoenix team that’s played Golden State unexpectedly well so far this year. The Suns have pushed the Warriors While posting a meager 6-13 record coming into this game, Phoenix played Golden State fairly well...

The joke isn’t funny.

The joke isn’t funny.

Charles Barkley has never been accused of having good jokes, but even for him this one was bad. Trash talk. It’s a beloved pastime of sports fans everywhere. From fans to TV personalities and to the athletes themselves, trash talk is a fun and enjoyable part of basketball. And I’m sure that’s what Charles Barkley thought he was doing on Thursday night when he upheld his never-ending, reason-defying, one-man feud with the Golden State Warriors by calling their style of play “little girly basketball” and saying he’s biased against “girl basketball.” Look, it’s not that he...

Despite fireworks, Warriors stumble in double-OT thriller

Despite fireworks, Warriors stumble in double-OT thriller

Houston snaps Golden State’s 12 game winning streak, which stands as the third longest in franchise history. OAKLAND, Calif. — With the reigning NFL MVP Cam Newton in attendance, the Golden State Warriors fumbled away their game in its final minutes just as Cam did against the Oakland Raiders some five days prior. Golden State’s self inflicted wounds occurred early and were felt late. Seventeen turnovers and a handful of silly fouls from the first half highlighted the Warriors lack of discipline throughout the night, eventually leading to both Stephen Curry and Draymond Green...

Warriors’ 12-game win streak comes to an end as Draymond Green continues to kick

Warriors’ 12-game win streak comes to an end as Draymond Green continues to kick

Stephen Curry still commits silly fouls and Draymond Green still kicks people, as Houston Rockets snap Golden State’s 12-game win streak. From playing clutch defense in the first overtime to kicking opposing players in the second, Draymond Green was certainly himself in the Warriors’ 132-127 loss to the Houston Rockets in double overtime. With the game tied at 123 at the end of the first overtime, the Rockets inbounded the ball with 1.5 seconds remaining on the shot clock to Eric Gordon. Green quickly poked the ball loose from behind as the shot clock expired, sending the game into a...

Instant Recap: Warriors fall to Rockets at Home in 2OT, 132-127

It was a classic between these two rivals, and one that ended up on the downside for the Dubs Despite the Warriors best efforts, the Rockets found a way to grind out the double overtime win tonight at Oracle, 132-127. Golden State couldn't find enough firepower to put away Houston, who made play after play down the stretch. This was the Rockets first regular season win over the Warriors in nine tries, finally ending the Dubs twelve-game winning streak. The game featured too many amazing individual performances to count. James Harden was virtually unstoppable on his way to a triple double,...

California appeals court ruling a win for Warriors’ arena efforts

California appeals court ruling a win for Warriors’ arena efforts

The Warriors’ new arena plans achieved a vital legal victory when the San Francisco Court of Appeals upheld the city’s Environmental Impact Report, readying the franchise to begin construction on Chase Center. With the San Francisco Court of Appeals upholding the Warriors' Environmental Impact Report on Tuesday, the franchise's goal of moving to San Francisco and opening Chase Center in 2019 became much more realistic. “We’re very pleased by the Appellate Court’s ruling,” Warriors Team President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts said in a statement. “We engaged in an...

Do the Warriors have the best offense of all time?

We talk offensive firepower, Kevin Durant’s surprising defense, wine baths and if they lead to, um, unexpected benefits, and much more. Boy howdy, Bram and Ivan are back and more untethered than ever. Nate sat this one out, and somehow any time there’s a two man crew, things get a little wonky (see minute marker 29:00 or so). We talked voter fatigue, Draymond Green’s DPOY candidacy, the Warriors developing into the superteam we all expected, and much more (aka, boofing). Subscribe on iTunes now!

Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors game preview

Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors game preview

(Warning to Warriors fans: salt incoming. You have been warned.) Two years ago, the Warriors were the darlings of the NBA. “Oh look at how many 3s they shoot! Curry never misses! Draymond is such a great and vocal leader! Klay is a perfect complement for this team! Their fans are so loud!” Fast forward two years, and while you still hear most of those claims, I think most of the NBA is starting to finally tire of the Warriors. Obviously, Rockets fans have their own issues with the Dubs. Houston still believes James Harden was the Most Valuable Player two years ago (and the players...

Around the NBA: Warriors are surging to the top of the power rankings across the league

Another week, another set of rankings ... but, this time, Golden State finds itself inching towards the top! Now, in week four of the season, the NBA has seen more “actualizing” of teams across the association. The farther away we get from opening night, the more teams are settling into their “expected” performance for the year. While some teams have been decimated by injuries leading to uneven results — Utah and New Orleans, for example — others, like once critical darlings Minnesota, have shown they can’t get out of their own way. But the top teams have stayed relatively...

Analysis: Who will win the battle for time at center?

Kerr & Co. continue to experiment with who will get time at the five this season. Let’s examine — and grade — the candidates! When Andrew Bogut was traded to the Mavericks, the Warriors found themselves without a comfortable answer at starting center. Their go-to backup, Festus Ezeli, was gone too — too expensive to stay on long-term and too good to play for an under-market salary. But anyone who has watched this team over the last few years has understood that this problem might be slightly overblown. Bogut was the center in theory — filling a position that was used roughly 20...

The Warriors’ defense is better than you think

Draymond Green says Golden State’s defense can be better than last year — and he’s right. OAKLAND, Calif. — After the Golden State Warriors’ 105-100 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, a hobbled Draymond Green tenderly made his way into the post-game press conference. Green, who was still in his game jersey, wreaked havoc on the Hawks defensively with four blocks. None were bigger than his two rejections on back-to-back possessions in the final 45 seconds of regulation. To put it modestly, Green has been playing like he has something to prove. One would think that two straight...

Warriors outlast Hawks behind Draymond Green’s defense

Golden State defeats Atlanta as Draymond Green strengthens his case for Defensive Player of the Year. Don’t say he didn’t warn you. Just a week ago in Milwaukee, Draymond Green sent out a message to all the other teams in the league. The message was simple — “Don’t go at me for game.” Apparently, the Atlanta Hawks missed the memo as they went at him, not once, but twice, in an attempt to win last night’s game. The result? Green collected two more blocks and the Hawks got two more turnovers and a loss. The Hawks entered Oracle Arena as one of the top-rated defenses in the...

Explain One Play: Stephen Curry butt-whumps AGAIN for Kevin Durant dunk

Klay Thompson and Steph Curry’s butt set screens for Kevin Durant points in two key out-of-bounds plays in the tight Hawks-Warriors game on Nov 28, 2016. In a tight grimy game like tonight’s Hawks game, every easy point is valuable. One source of easy points is a well-executed in-bounds play. This is the only situation when a coach can put players exactly where you want them and have them completely synchronized. These are usually called out-of-bounds plays, or sideline out-of-bounds (SLOB) or baseline out-of-bounds (BLOB) plays depending on where the in-bounder stands. Let’s look...

Quick recap: Warriors use stout fourth quarter defense to hold off Atlanta Hawks 105-100

The Warriors’ win streak hits 12! Defense, like much of basketball, is a nuanced art. Some of it is raw talent and athleticism, but as Andre Iguodala said in his post game interview, “the thing about defense is you have to ‘want it.’ There’s very few guys that really want it defensively. There’s not any tricks or anything special to it. You just got to want it. You have a guy who really wants and puts his heart and passion to it. He’s very smart.” The Warriors entered Monday’s game on an 11-game winning streak. The Atlanta Hawks came in having lost five of their last six...

Draymond Green comes up with two huge blocks to seal win vs. Hawks

DPoY, amirite? Draymond Green is on a completely different level, somehow. I mean, we all have seen his airtight defense over the past few seasons, but the things he is doing on a night in and night out basis are just mind blowing. Yikes. We’ll have a bunch more coming soon, but here are your (two) tweets of the night: DPOY https://t.co/dQxJ4iJoEb— Warriors Talk (@JaeAzizi) November 29, 2016 back to back defensive plays to seal a game. #DPOY https://t.co/YyYVGoG5uC— Warriors Talk (@JaeAzizi) November 29, 2016 What a finish, and what a statement from Draymond!
