  • Warriors look listless, fall to Nuggets in preseason opener

    Golden State was an ice cold 4-33 from beyond the arc, and dropped the opener 108-102

    The Golden State Warriors’ first preseason game of the year started off on an exciting note. Right before tipoff, reigning Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green was presented with his trophy for the award. Much to the surprise of Green, the person presenting the trophy was his boyhood idol and four-time recipient of the award, Ben Wallace.

  • Warriors lose a stupid, stupid game 103-102 to Timberwolves

    This was a very stupid game.

    The Warriors limped into tonight’s game with a belt full of unfortunate experiences. There was the Durant injury. The strange schedule foisted upon them by the league. The shooting slump. The slumped shoulders.

  • Warriors lose game that only mattered to Jazz, 99-105

    Put the pitchforks and torches down, people. This one didn’t matter anyway.

    In a game that meant nothing, the Warriors couldn’t pull off the win and fell to the Jazz 99-105, ending their winning streak at 14.

  • Warriors open and close strong against feisty Blazers – Golden State beats Portland 125-117

    Despite the team’s turnovers, Curry’s aggressiveness pays off

    Ahh, the Golden State Warriors. On paper this goes down as yet another solid victory over a potential playoff opponent, but in between the opening and closing whistle, we saw a lot of good, bad, and ugly from the Warriors.

  • Warriors outlast Suns in Phoenix, 120-111

    A great effort from Stephen Curry was enough to notch Golden State’s 65th win of the season.

    For the last time in the 2016-2017 NBA season, the Golden State Warriors played a road game on the back-end of a back-to-back. And faced with another young, athletic team, Golden State looked noticeably tired and uneven for long stretches.

  • Warriors overcome 17-point deficit, beat Pelicans 128-120

    Golden State got their first win of the season, behind 7 blocks from Kevin Durant and 33 points from Klay Thompson

    If you were expecting the Warriors to come out of the gates firing after losing their season opener, well . . . that didn’t exactly happen. The Dubs looked sloppy and unfocused in the opening minutes against an energetic New Orleans Pelicans team.

  • Warriors reign over Kings in 114-100 win

    Despite a fourth quarter comeback attempt, the Warriors shut down the Kings in tonight’s 114-100 win.

    Draymond Green was the player of the night, scoring a season-high 23 points with eight assists and three made shots from downtown in just under five minutes, two in a row assisted by Zaza Pachulia (who also had eight rebounds on the night.)

    Meanwhile, Stephen Curry had another one of his signature clutch performances, coming in hot in the fourth quarter to hit back-to-back-to-back threes. Curry had 27 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists and six steals.

  • Warriors rookie describes what it's like to guard LeBron James in real life

    Jordan Bell: “I just played the best defense of my life. It didn’t matter.”

    A bunch of NBA players run pickup basketball during the offseason, and rookies are no different. In fact, Warriors rookie Jordan Bell recently ran some pickup and found himself matched up against who?

    LeBron James.

  • Warriors rout Pelicans 123-101, win 14th straight

    Kevin Durant made his triumphant return tonight as Golden State was victorious against a depleted New Orleans roster.

    The Stephen Curry-less Golden State Warriors defeated the Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins-less New Orleans Pelicans tonight, 123-101.

    Tonight was the much anticipated return of Kevin Durant and it was great to see him. He wasted no time getting on the board.

  • Warriors run wild on Cavaliers, 132-113, to take 2-0 Finals lead

    Golden State remains undefeated in the 2017 playoffs with yet another runaway victory.

    The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 132-113 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, taking a 2-0 series lead.

    The biggest news of the night was the return of head coach Steve Kerr, who had missed most of the playoffs thus far. It was a fairly unexpected announcement, but it was great to see him back out there and Oracle Arena did not disappoint in their welcome.

  • 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.
