  • Warriors take Game 1 over Jazz, 106-94

    Draymond Green ran the court on both ends, helping lead the way to a blowout win for Golden State to start the Western Conference Semifinals.

    The Golden State Warriors inched one game closer to their championship goal Tuesday night by defeating the Utah Jazz, 106-94.

  • Warriors takeover Magic Kingdom, win 118-98

    Mickey Mouse is unharmed.

    Call it a tale of two halves. The Golden State Warriors looked tired and uninterested for most of the first half against the Orlando Magic, losing the second quarter 28-22 and giving up a massive 16-2 run in the process. The game was tied 50-50 at halftime.

    Fortunately for us, Stephen Curry was there to save the day. The two-time reigning MVP scored 16 of his game-high 27 points in the third quarter, including a healthy “just because” 28-foot three point shot, as the Warriors ran the lead up to 26 before coasting to a 118-98 victory.

  • Warriors thrash Bulls in 123-92 victory

    With birthday boy Klay Thompson leading the charge, Golden State never let Chicago even get close in this match-up.

    After the nail-biter that was Saturday’s loss in Sacramento, the Warriors never gave the Bulls a chance in tonight’s 123-92 win.

    To be fair, Chicago was playing without Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade. But from the tip, the Warriors took charge and never allowed a lead change.

  • Warriors Top Rockets in Houston, 125 - 108

    The Golden State Warriors used a perfectly executed third quarter to breeze past a faltering Houston Rockets team on Friday night.

    The Golden State Warriors used clean defensive execution and continued all-around excellence from the Big Four to avenge their December loss to James Harden and the Houston Rockets, 125 - 108. Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry spearheaded a controlled offensive attack, with 32 and 24 points respectively. James Harden, hampered by a hounding rotation of Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala and without the usual contributions from his running mate Eric Gordon, was harassed into 17 points, 11 assists, 7 turnovers, and an 0-for-5 night from downtown.

  • Warriors use Team Effort to take care of Jazz in Utah, 106-99

    It wasn't pretty but the Dubs used every bit of their roster to handle the short-handed Jazz

    The Warriors headed into Utah on Thursday night to take on the junior-varsity version of the Jazz (without 4 out of 5 starters). They walked out with a victory after almost blowing a 25-point lead in the second half, looking exhausted after the tough back-to-back. Every Warrior who entered the game scored multiple baskets, including 5 players in double-figures. The Jazz were lead by Rudy Gobert (20 points, 17 rebounds) and the Aussie Bomber Joe Ingles (21 points, 5-9 from three).

  • Warriors vs Jazz 104-74 Warriors Victory

    The Golden State Warriors used a huge night from Stephen Curry to take care of the Utah Jazz in quick order at home.

    After getting a little bit of rest, the Golden State Warriors were firing on all cylinders against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night. With these two having played several close contests over recent seasons, it finally feels like the Warriors are figuring out what do against Utah to make the games easier.

    The Jazz fell behind big in their first meeting but were able to make it a game. That was not the case tonight as the Warriors rolled behind a huge night from Stephen Curry and their stout defense.

  • Warriors vs. Cavaliers Game 3 was everything we wanted

    Game 3 was perfect basketball promising a competitive series... and then Golden State won.

  • Warriors vs. Clippers was a Golden State rout. It could have been even more lopsided

    The Warriors blew the Clippers out, and they didn’t even shoot that well. It was a thorough domination.

    The Clippers’ home game against the Warriors was a litmus test, a chance to prove they were a worthy playoff contender to the league’s most terrifying team, and they failed miserably. And while a 115-98 final score is awful, it actually could have been even worse.

    Kevin Durant made his first three-pointer in the Warriors-Clippers game with 6:27 left in the third quarter. Durant and Stephen Curry had combined to miss 10 three-point attempts during the first 30 minutes of the game. When Durant’s shot finally swished in from 25 feet, the Warriors were already up by 24 points anyway.

  • Warriors vs. Lakers summer league preview: Jacob Evans trying to find his shooting touch

    The Warriors will look to finish the California Classic undefeated in their third of three games today before heading to Las Vegas

    One of the questions that came up in discussing Jacob Evans’ fit after he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors was whether he’d be consistent enough from the 3-point line to become a complementary threat on offense.

    Billed as a 3-and-D player entering the draft, a couple of Lakers blogs raised concerns about whether he had been tinkering with his shot mechanics after a poor shooting workout in L.A.

  • Warriors vs. Rockets: GameThread

    The Warriors welcome James Harden and the Rockets back to Oracle Arena.

    The Houston Rockets look to challenge the Golden State Warriors' quest to keep their winning streak alive. This is the first match up between these two teams since they met in the playoffs last season. It will likely be a high scoring affair; James Harden is having a terrific season so far, but both teams struggle with consistent defense.

  • Warriors waive Chris Boucher

    Boucher was on a two-way contract, but will no longer be a part of the team.

    The Chris Boucher experiment appears to be over, at least for the Golden State Warriors. Or, at least for now. On Friday, the day after the 2018 NBA Draft, the team opted to waive Boucher, who was about to start the second year of a two-year, two-way contract.

  • Warriors won over Lakers 149-106

    In their first meeting this season, the Lakers didn’t just beat the Warriors, they dominated the Western Conference favorites.

    On Wednesday night at Oracle Arena, the Warriors exacted revenge with a dazzling display that left even the opposing coach awestruck.

  • Warriors’ surprise split from KNBR is a game-changer for local sports

    The news that the Warriors have switched from KNBR to 95.7 The Game, (first reported on GSOM by bilfor) came somewhat as a surprise to the Bay Area sports community. In hindsight, the writing seems to have been on the wall for at least a year, due to conflicting schedules and contract priority issues with the San Francisco Giants.

  • Was Kyrie Irving’s ‘flat Earth theory’ one big ploy for attention?
