Thanksgiving football for NBA fans: a team-by-team comparison

A team by team look at each NBA and NFL franchise, on a historical basis. Each team is compared to one other team for super awesome reasons. Just in time for Thanksgiving! Today is Turkey Day (also known as The NFL Presents Thanksgiving) and many faithful hoops fans will have no choice but to watch hours of pigskin football. What's a fan to do? You can refer to this handy article to know what you're in for on a team-by-team basis. As an added bonus, I decided to compare every team to a NBA franchise so you, the rabid hoops fan, can better understand the leeague. More fun, too. Slightly more...

Magic vs. Warriors notebook: "Selfish" Orlando fails against Golden State

The Magic played "selfish" basketball as they dropped their third straight game Wednesday. Zach Oliver has more in this notebook. Magic can't keep the ball moving After dazzling everyone with their passing exhibition against the Detroit Pistons last Monday, the Orlando Magic have struggled to find a rhythm on the offensive end. In Wednesday's loss to the Golden State Warriors, it wasn't any different, with the team posting just seven assists in the first half and 11 through three quarters. If not for a 10-assist fourth, the Magic could've been looking at over a 2-to-1 ratio on made baskets...

Warriors vs. Magic final score: Golden State takes Orlando's lunch money, 111-96

The Golden State Warriors cruised to a victory in Orlando Wednesday night, dominating from the second quarter on en route to a 111-96 victory. Stephen Curry was spectacular, scoring 28 points on just 13 shots. The MVP-candidate has hit 14 of his last 18 three-point attempts. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. And tonight, someone got hurt. The home team Orlando Magic. For the most part, the Golden State Warriors played in a different gear, handling their talented but young opponent with relative ease in a 111-96 road victory. Despite playing the night before, the Warriors did...

Curry, Warriors pound Magic 111-96

Stephen Curry had a big night, as the Warriors cruised to a victory over the Magic. In their final home game before embarking on a West coast road trip, the Orlando Magic played host to the Stephen Curry led Golden State Warriors. Curry and the Warriors would not be stopped, as they shot the lights out en route to a 111-96 victory. Out of the gates, Orlando struggled. Golden State forced a couple of turnovers and forced the Magic into tough shots, jumping out to a 10-0 lead just two minutes into the game. The Warriors, who shot the lights out in Miami last night, shot 13-of-25 from the...

Game Thread #14: Warriors at Orlando Magic

We seem to have forgotten how to play defense. Maybe a new thread will help. Go Warriors!

Magic nearing full strength against Warriors

The Magic will have the services of Tobias Harris, Evan Fournier and Kyle O'Quinn against the Warriors. For the first time all season, the Orlando Magic are nearly close to full strength. On Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors, the Magic will have the services of Kyle O'Quinn, Tobias Harris and Evan Fournier, all of whom have been dealing with an array of injuries. O'Quinn, who started at power forward in the teams season opening loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, suffered a sprained ankle, and hasn't played since then. Harris suffered a strained right calf prior to the game...

Five Stars: Golden State Warriors 114, Miami Heat 97

Miami hung with the Splash Brothers for three periods before giving up the ghost last night. We use the GameScore metric as published by www.basketball-reference.com for a measure on the good, the bad, and the ugly. First Star Stephen Curry (GSW) 38.7 Stephen Curry was far and away (as in up, up, and away) the best player on the court last night, in Miami or elsewhere. He scored an NBA high 40 points by hitting 12-of-19 field goals, including an 8-for-11 clinic from outside and another eight points on nine foul shots. He dished out seven helpers, six rebounds, three steals and a block...

The ReHeat: Warriors @ Heat

The ReHeat is an entertaining second look at the Heat and Warriors game from Tuesday night. I'm Indian. So I never thought there would be a day that I didn't like Curry. Then this game happened. I thought this game would be a blow out like the LA Clippers match in all honesty. Blowout like the Golden State Warriors would go on a 15-0 run before tip off type of blow out. The Miami Heat showed that they were ready to face an elite team throughout the game and in the 4th quarter they were up by two with seven minutes left. Then the Warriors went on a 14-0 run to close out the Heat....

GameStream: Curry's hot hand leads Warriors past Heat late, 114-97

Steph Curry was feeling it all night, and although the Heat had a fourth quarter lead, the Warriors were to much down the stretch. Here's all of our coverage of the game! Going into another game sans Dwyane Wade looked ominous even after the weekend's back to back wins for Miami. The Golden State Warriors are a top tier Western Conference team afterall. The scary thing about the Golden State Warriors is the way they can jump all over you in a game. We know about their offensive firepower with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Their big man is even a great playmaker with the pass, so when...

Warriors vs Magic preview: Going for the Florida double

The Golden State Warriors look to keep the winning streak alive against a young, improved Orlando Magic team The Golden State Warriors face the Orlando Magic in the third game of their road trip and on the second night of a Floridian back-to-back. The Magic are sitting at 6-10 with all of their wins coming against Eastern Conference bottom-dwellers, but they are an intriguing team that will be tougher than they have been in previous years since Dwight Howard's departure. The Miami-Orlando back-to-back is no trivial matter. Florida is full of distractions: nightclubs, beaches,...

Warriors vs. Heat final score: Miami has no answer for balanced Golden State attack

After getting off to a hot start, the Heat were put on ice by Steph Curry & Company as the Warriors played well on both sides of the ball, en route to their 11th win of the season. The Golden State Warriors have improved to 8-0 this season when holding opponents under 100 points with a 114-97 victory over the Miami Heat Tuesday night. Stephen Curry paced the Warriors offensively, scoring 40 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field, including 8-of-11 from behind the three-point line. It was one of those nights for Steph Curry, where words alone can not quite capture the full beauty of some...

Magic vs. Warriors: Orlando hosts one of the league's elite

Golden State has assembled a title-contending team. Orlando does battle against it at home Wednesday before embarking on a six-game roadtrip. Kyle O`Quinn hasn't played since the Orlando Magic's season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans on October 28th, in which game he sprained his left ankle after stepping on another player's foot. Nearly a month later, reports Orlando Sentinel scribe Brian Schmitz, O'Quinn is almost ready to return to the lineup: the third-year big man hopes to play Wednesday when the Orlando Magic host the Golden State Warriors at Amway Center, says Schmitz....

A Technical Look at the Warriors' Turnover Issues

No team has won an NBA championship in (at least) the last two decades turning the ball over as much as the Warriors have in their first 12 games. Good food for thought for a team with championship aspirations. Former Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson recently addressed the W's current turnover woes: They will be a team that's going to have their share of turnovers because of that's just the makeup. You're not going to change that overnight." Suddenly Jackson's interview with Bleacher Report felt strangely reminiscent of the majority of post-game pressers last season where...

Are the Warriors an "elite" team?

How do the Warriors stack up against the leagues most elite teams? After huge expectations coming into this season and a 10-2 start, it's time to break down the argument. The Warriors entered the 2014/2015 season with some of the greatest expectations we have seen in a long time. Its no longer "Will we make the playoffs?", but rather "Can we win it all?" Last year's team carried similar expectations, but showed that even a playoff run doesn't make you immune to change. Clearing out the coaching drama made a clear message: You have the talent, now go and get it - no excuses. The debate...

Recap: Warriors outlast Thunder 91-86

A win is a win is a win. Thanks to Mo Speights. Nothing was going right for the Warriors on the road. Coming into tonight they had lost ten straight in Oklahoma City. In the first half, Andrew Bogut and Leandro Barbosa were lost to injury, Bogut to an orbital contusion (read: eye injury) and Barbosa to a sprained knee. (They did not return and their status for Tuesday at Miami is uncertain.) Repeatedly, the Warriors couldn't finish at the basket, missing three wide-open dunks tonight. In the second half, Stephen Curry was held without a basket and Klay Thompson had only one score --...

Warriors vs. Thunder, Final Score: Oklahoma City Scraps Against Golden State, Fall Again, 91-86

The Warriors came into OKC looking for their first win in the city since December 11, 2008 and had to scrap hard against the Thunder to squeak out a victory. Box Score | Golden State of Mind Another incredibly scrappy effort from the Oklahoma City, they held Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to a total of five points in the second half, but did not have an answer for Marreese Speights and they fell to the Golden State Warriors, 91-86. What is your initial reaction to tonight's result? First QuarterAbsolutely love how scrappy the team is without their two main stars.  They are clearly...
