Final Score: Warriors smash Grizzlies 110-93

The Warriors got a full team effort as they made quick work of the visitors from Memphis The Golden State Warriors demolished the Memphis Grizzlies in Oracle Arena, 110-93.

Warriors vs. Grizzlies: Steph Curry likely to reach 15,000 points tonight

DeMarcus Cousins says “the finish line is in sight”

DeMarcus Cousins says “the finish line is in sight”

Want to get hyped about Boogie’s return? Want to see him beasting in G League practices? Look no further. NBA fans have waited nearly 11 months for the return of DeMarcus Cousins. Golden State Warriors fans have waited more than five months, since the shocking news that he was signing with the defending champions on a one-year deal. And that return is so, so close. Cousins is basically ready to play, from a health standpoint, but the team is slow-playing him so as to debut him at full strength. They’ve been open about wanting to have him not only in game shape, but in a good basketball...

Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston are both available against the Grizzlies

Golden State will be close to full health against Memphis. The Golden State Warriors are about as healthy as they’ve been all year. Steph Curry is back. Draymond Green is back. Alfonzo McKinnie is back. And now Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston are back.

Putting Steph Curry’s talent in historical perspective

Putting Steph Curry’s talent in historical perspective

Steve Kerr helped put Steph Curry’s talent in perspective with a comment before last night’s game. For anyone who responded to Kevin Durant signing with the Golden State Warriors by yelling into a void that there’s only one ball, here’s a fun statistic from Anthony Slater of The Athletic: Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson were averaging exactly 19.7 shots per game entering last Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors. Entering tonight’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, it’s Curry — the two-time MVP and three-time NBA champion — who slipped a little,...

Preview: Warriors host defensive-minded Grizzlies

Preview: Warriors host defensive-minded Grizzlies

Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala may play with their status changed to “questionable.” Fresh off their thrilling road victory over the Sacramento Kings, the Golden State Warriors are back home to host a familiar foe: the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies are one of those teams that I somehow manage to like and dislike at the same time. Led by affable stars Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, the Grizzlies are a “grit and grind” team through and through. They don’t appear at the top of any rankings but are reliably solid because of their defense. Their offense, however, can be...

Will the Warriors try hard enough to cover 11.5-points against the Grizzlies?

Will the Warriors try hard enough to cover 11.5-points against the Grizzlies?

Golden State will need better effort than the last two games to win comfortably again, favored by double-digits at home against Memphis. After getting spanked by the Toronto Raptors, the Golden State Warriors almost let sloppy play and lazy defense cost them a loss to the upstart Sacramento Kings. But the Dubs turned on their lock-down defense for the last three minutes of the game, escaping with a 130-125 win, and will now return home as 11.5 point favorites over the Memphis Grizzlies. Here we discuss the odds and preview from a betting perspective. When: Monday December 17, 2018 at...

DeMarcus Cousins will spend another week practicing in the G League

DeMarcus Cousins will spend another week practicing in the G League

The four-time All-Star is nearing a return, and will look to sharpen his skills in Santa Cruz. The Golden State Warriors have taken an interesting approach with rehabbing DeMarcus Cousins, and it worked so well the first week that they decided to do it again. At Sunday’s practice, coach Steve Kerr announced that, just like last week, Cousins will be spending time this week with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League. DeMarcus Cousins practiced with the Warriors today, will go back down to Santa Cruz for higher intensity practices this week.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December...

Video: DeMarcus Cousins and Kevin Durant play one-on-one

He’s almost back, Dub Nation. Get hyped. It’s mid-December, which can only mean one thing: The debut of DeMarcus Cousins on the Golden State Warriors is nearing. After the four-time All-Star’s latest evaluation, the team said that he would likely be back shortly after Christmas. To add to that, Cousins spent a part of last week practicing with the Santa Cruz Warriors, to help get into game shape. There’s still no target date (at least not one that has been made public), but it’s clear that we’re getting very close to the debut of Boogie. And just in case you want to get hyped...

Warriors assign Jacob Evans III to the G League

Warriors assign Jacob Evans III to the G League

Golden State’s first-round draft pick is headed to Santa Cruz. Rookie Jacob Evans III has not gotten many opportunities to develop on the court with the Golden State Warriors, so he’s headed somewhere where he’ll find more consistent playing time. With the team rounding into relatively decent health, they announced on Saturday that Evans has been assigned to the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League.

Should Damian Jones still be in the Warriors’ future plans?

Should Damian Jones still be in the Warriors’ future plans?

Jones’ on court rehab should start now by not only acknowledging his flaws but finding ways to correct them as he sits out with injury. The potential of a player is a hell of a seductive trap. Teams are intrigued by it. They invest money, time, and energy into it, and some try in vain to force their “what if’s” into “what is.” In reality, potential is static. Nothing happens on its own, and the only thing that the Golden State Warriors can bank on is what’s happening in this very moment. And in this moment, regardless of his flashes of athleticism, Damian Jones isn’t the...

The absurdity of Klay Thompson

The absurdity of Klay Thompson

Klay Thompson’s interviews are delightfully weird, awkward, and relatable. Klay Thompson is one of the weirdest players in the NBA. In a league of superstars who seem more like demigods, Klay can’t seem like more than a normal guy. He’s relatable in the most basic, most embarrassing, and most human of ways. Klay’s entire life is strange. He doesn’t show much emotion on or off the court, except for the occasional fist pump or wide grin. His father, former NBA player Mychal Thompson, has one of the weirdest Twitter feeds online. Now I no wat NASA stands for where I am...

Warrior Wonder: Strength in Numbers

Warrior Wonder: Strength in Numbers

When down in crunch time, it was a collective team effort that proved that strength in numbers was the true Warrior on display. The competition is elevating in the NBA and Kings were out in full force in the 4th quarter trying to take down the world champs in a revenge game from last month where the Warriors won in the finals seconds of that game. There were plenty of excellent performances in this contest and faced with a 10 point deficit late in the 4th quarter on the road, the team banded together a pulled out a victory in the jaws of defeat. Last night’s Warrior Wonder was a...

A Win in Three Minutes: Warriors orchestrate wild comeback against the Kings

Warriors squander 16 point lead, end up winning by five. After blowing a 16-point lead late in the third quarter, the Golden State Warriors locked in and edged the Sacramento Kings 130-125. Stephen Curry lead all scorers with 35 points, and Kevin Durant steadied the comeback by scoring 13 of his 33 points in the fourth. Klay Thompson ended his up and down night in the most ‘Klay’ esque way imaginable-hitting the go ahead three and had 27 on the night. Here are three observations from last night’s wild win in Sacramento. Active and engaged first half offense From the opening tip,...
