  • Warriors seek out another win in New Orleans, 113-109

    Draymond Green messed around and got his first triple double of the season.

    WOW. This is why you watch all the games!

    At the end of a grueling road trip, the Warriors and Pelicans delivered one of the most entertaining games of the year. The Pelicans were brilliant but not strong enough to overcome a powerful showing from the Warriors triumvirate (“quad”umvirate?) of stars. After a bumpy start, the Warriors delivered their best efforts right when they were needed the most.

  • Warriors show out in Durant’s home debut

    Golden State brings intensity on both ends of the floor against a dull Clippers squad.

    I’ll admit that it can be pretty hard to look at the Golden State Warriors’ 47-point preseason home opener through an objective lens. But let’s give it a shot.

    Before tip-off, head coach Steve Kerr told media that it will take this team much longer than anybody expects to mesh -- understandable for a team that has only been playing together for seven days.

  • Warriors Stumble in Cleveland, 108-109

    The Cleveland Cavaliers won Christmas Day in a last-second fracas.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Golden State Warriors 108-109 in a memorable Christmas Day rematch that featured old man Richard Jefferson having flashbacks to 2004, Stephen Curry bottled by aggressively physical defense, mental lapses on both sides, and a wild last two minutes.

    The Warriors led for 40+ minutes of the game, including a double-digit lead in the early part of the fourth quarter built off the outstanding performance by Kevin Durant. 2016, however, is the year of the Cavalier comeback. The game served as a microcosm of the 2016 NBA Finals, replete with late-game heroics by Kyrie Irving and Draymond Green turnovers borne from senseless aggression.

  • Warriors sweep road trip, demolish Nuggets 127-108

    Kevin Durant had 25, 7, and 7, and Stephen Curry notched 22 points with 11 assists, as the Warriors ended the road trip with a route

    It only took a few seconds for this game to look like a typical Golden State Warriors blowout. The Dubs took it to the Denver Nuggets early, scoring the games first 8 points, en route to an early 13-point lead.

  • 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.

    The Golden State Warriors — undead zombies, unkillable foes, impossible opponents — won Game 3 in Cleveland on Wednesday. It took them finishing a classic game on an 11-0 run that wrecked Cleveland’s hopes to achieve a stunning 118-113 victory.

  • 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. Sixers summer league preview: Schedule, TV info, roster info

    The Warriors begin summer league play against Markelle Fultz and the Sixers tonight at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.

    The Golden State Warriors will begin their 2017 Las Vegas Summer League campaign tonight at 7:30 p.m. PST when they face the Philadelphia 76ers.

    The game will mark the debut of Warriors second round draft pick Jordan Bell, who is expected to sign a two year contract with the team today.

  • Warriors vs. Spurs final score: Klay Thompson leads Golden State to 112-92 win

    Klay’s 27 points leads Warriors to comeback win on the road versus San Antonio Spurs

    The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs opened their season series in San Antonio Thursday night with a 112-92 win.

    The Spurs fed off of a frenzied crowd to jump out to an early lead behind Lamarcus Aldridge’s 11 first quarter points and a barrage of threes and tough offensive rebounds.

  • Warriors vs. Wolves preview: It could be worse

    The Warriors face the Timberwolves tonight at 7:30 p.m. PST at Oracle Arena.

    Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press wrote a feature yesterday about the Minnesota Timberwolves playing out their season in search of improvement with an eye toward next season was quite possibly the saddest thing I’ve read about a NBA team this season.

  • 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 win Game 1 overtime thriller, 124-114

    Behind 29 points from Steph Curry, Golden State narrowly took care of business

    Before the NBA Finals began, there was a lot of talk about how boring the series would be. It’s the fourth installment of the Golden State Warriors against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors are too dominant, yada, yada, yada.

  • 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.

    The Lakers lost, 149-106, in a game that was all but over by the end of the first quarter. 

  • Warriors’ dominant Game 1 win was a wake-up call to the NBA

    The idea that the New Orleans Pelicans could compete with the Golden State Warriors in this Western Conference semifinals series was born mostly out of optimistic, it seems clear in hindsight. Nobody picked New Orleans to win, but it was sexy to predict them stealing a couple.

    That looks less likely after Game 1’s 123-101 drubbing on Saturday, one that the Warriors accomplished with Stephen Curry — who’s expected back in Game 2 — sitting on the sidelines. At one point, they led by 41 points.
