Stories behind the Warriors’ 95-87 win over Toronto

Leandro Barbosa scored a team-high 15 points in 14 ½ minutes, and the “Splash Brothers” added 14 points apiece in the Warriors’ 95-87 exhibition-opening victory over Toronto on Monday night in San Jose. The Warriors allowed Toronto to grab 19 offensive rebounds.

Curry fouled out in just 19 minutes, 27 seconds, the Warriors committed 17 turnovers, and after just five practices, there is still a way to go to reach the next level of...

Lakers aren't enthused by all the running at training camp

Are the Lakers that bad at shooting? Or were they cursed by tired legs? It was open for debate after a 90-71 loss to the Utah Jazz on Sunday in an exhibition opener. The Lakers shot 28.9% and faded badly as the game unfolded. It came after three days of two-a-day practices in another traditionally...

Warriors knock off Raptors in exhibition-opening victory

Playing in front of a capacity crowd of 18,223 — many of whom lined up outside the arena 90 minutes before the doors to the SAP Center opened — the Warriors put on a show spanning the second and third quarters. During the stretch, the Warriors reeled off a 22-6 run and showcased the ball movement and spacing that makes their offense appear nearly unstoppable. Interim head coach Luke Walton, who is filling in while head coach Steve Kerr recovers from two offseason back surgeries, wanted to try a variety of different combinations. Walton was mostly calm during his debut, rarely leaving...

Warriors beat: Ian Clark shooting for spot on roster

Ian Clark shooting for spot on roster “For me, it’s just about playing with confidence, knowing what I can do and what I can’t do, and improving the things I need to do better,” Clark said before Monday’s exhibition opener in San Jose. When he went undrafted in 2013, Clark made the most of his time with the Warriors in the Las Vegas Summer League. The Warriors have been looking for a shooter to play alongside Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston on the second unit, and even though Ben Gordon has the longer resume, Clark might better fit the bill. “When I played with them in...

Walton shakes off nerves as Warriors prep to open exhibition season

About 90 minutes before the Warriors’ exhibition opener Monday night, interim head coach Luke Walton admitted that he was nervous, but he seemed to have a pretty solid game plan. Walton, who is filling in while head coach Steve Kerr recovers from two offseason back surgeries, said he’ll start the Warriors’ usual starting five (Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut). Walton got plenty of advice from his Hall of Fame father, Bill, who suggested he call about six coaches and read about seven John Wooden books before making his coaching debut.
