Warriors And Clippers: The Best Rivalry In The NBA

The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers, as they told it, celebrated the holiday spirit in their Christmas day matchup the way any teams would. "Some people would say this is a rivalry but I would say no, because neither one of us has done anything to make it a rivalry," Mark Jackson preached after his team's dramatic 105-103 win. "We are two teams trying to get to a place. It's good old-fashione ...

Crunch Time, Mismatches, and Mark Jackson

Mark Jackson lives for the mismatch. He shouldn't. As obviously and frequently as any team in the league, Golden State attacks the specific link of the defensive chain it believes is weakest. More often than not, that approach is manifested via isolations – for David Lee in the post, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, and Andre Iguodala after a switched screen, or Steph Curry alone at the top of the key. It's ...

Harrison Barnes: Adjusting on the Fly

Harrison Barnes sometimes seems like a luxury. Golden State's 21 year-old wing was due for a major role change this season after the Warriors acquired Andre Iguodala over the summer. The initial debate was whether or not he'd assume his place in the starting lineup for 2013-2014, but the more important one was how often he'd play nominal power forward in the small-ball lineups that spurred Golden State to s ...

Warriors Adapt in 106-93 Win Over Minnesota

The Warriors didn't make a three-pointer in the first half. Steph Curry scored 5 points and played only 24 minutes due to a minor ankle injury. Andrew Bogut might have been less effective, fouling out in just 16 minutes of playing time. But none of it mattered; Golden State, clearly, is good enough to win even when playing far from its best. The Warriors 106-93 drubbing of the Timberwolves in Minneapolis la ...

Andre Iguodala: Splash Brother?

It's not that Andre Iguodala can't shoot; he's just not a great shooter. Upstart Philadelphia learned that the hard way in a 110-90 loss to the Warriors, as Iguodala poured in six first-half three-pointers en route to 32 points. While that unexpected barrage from long-range was certainly impressive, it's fitting that Iguodala's night will be just as memorable for two other plays: a 60-foot alley-oop from St ...

Sloppy Offense Shines in Loss to Clippers

Chris Paul's 42 points were just short of a career-high, and his 15 assists and six steals made him the only player in almost 40 years to reach those thresholds in the same game. This might have been the best performance of Paul's Hall-of-Fame career, and the Clippers notched their first win of the 2013-2014 season. After the game, though, Craig Sager just couldn't help himself. He had to ask about Steph Cu ...

Golden State’s Different Kind of Showtime

The Warriors aren’t a traditional fast-breaking team. Golden State ranked just outside the league’s top 10 in percentage of points (14.6%) scored via transition in 2012-2013, but you had to look hard to know it. They lacked a singular ball-handling blur the likes of Ty Lawson or John Wall, not to mention a high-flying finisher other than Harrison Barnes. The Warriors just weren’t built like one of basketbal ...
