Warriors News: Front Office Split On Klay Thompson’s Availability

Ever since the Klay Thompson story was first reported a few days ago, most Warriors fans have been debating whether they would rather keep Thompson in Golden State, or give him up in a deal that would bring Kevin Love to the Warriors. The same discussion seems to be happening inside the Warriors' organization and they can't seem to make up their mind. A blockbuster trade seemed almost certain after it was r ...

Game Preview: Warriors Looking To Send The Series Back To LA

The focus is slowly shifting to solely basketball in this series. After all the Sterling fiasco, the Clippers went into Game 5 and delivered a win for the home town fans. While the Sterling situation is far from over, both teams have to turn all their attention to this series. The Warriors are now down 3-2 in the series and on the brink of elimination. The Warriors are coming home to Oracle Arena for Game 6 ...

Game 3 Preview: Can The Warriors Bounce Back And Protect Home Court

After two days off both teams are expected to make some adjustments, but the Warriors need a much better effort overall. The Warriors gave up 138 points in Game 2 and must quickly figure out how to correct that. It is easy to blame it on the absence of Andrew Bogut, but the Warriors must find a way to slow down the Clippers' high powered offense if they want to win this game and series. Coming off the humil ...

Warriors News: David Lee Could Potentially Miss The Postseason

The Golden State Warriors are still battling for playoff positioning and will try and improve on last year's postseason performance if they do manage to clinch a playoff spot. Unfortunately, the Warriors might have to once again deal with the loss of David Lee. The 30 year old power forward is currently sidelined by a nerve inflammation in his hamstring and could miss an extended period of time. According t ...

An Intriguing Warriors Lineup We Haven’t Seen, Yet

When David Lee suffered a torn hip flexor against the Nuggets in the playoffs last season, it presented Mark Jackson an intriguing opportunity: playing Harrison Barnes at the 4 in a small-ball lineup. It wasn't a blessing-in-disguise scenario, however, because Lee's scoring absence was the elephant in the dorm room against San Antonio's defense that keyed on Golden State's perimeter scorers. The Warriors di ...

Don’t be Surprised by the Shooting

Look, I'm staggered. The Denver series at least made sense. The Nuggets were bad at defending 3s, the Warriors were great at shooting them. What happened was less an upset than a series that Golden State probably wins again if you run it back. In theory, this meant that a playoff matchup against the almighty Spurs would ruin everything. San Antonio gives up the 5th least 3-point attempts in basketball. Fun' ...

Save me from this bout of Warriors optimism

To be clear, I do not expect Golden State to win this series. I never did. That much hasn't changed, but I have noticed some things that at the very least, make me less pessimistic. Yesterday, Henry Abbott asked if I was more or less inspired by the notion that Golden State could win this series. I responded "No," because it's better to get the win than to play well. Upon review, however, there are more rea ...

Warriors didn’t win an upset; Nuggets lost to the better team

Did the Warriors win an "upset" over perception, or did they actually beat a better team? After watching the series and reflecting upon it, I'd conclude that Golden State was only a nominal underdog, not an actual one. The Warriors sans David Lee should beat the Gallo-less Nuggets. Were this series played out again, I'd pick the Warriors to take it 60%-70% of the time. Forgive me for dwelling on the past as ...
