Golden State Warriors
San Antonio Spurs
Most of the words that came out of Mark Jackson’s mouth Friday night after the Golden State Warriors win against the San Antonio Spurs weren’t new. After any given win this season the word “battle” has been a go-to staple in the “Action” Jackson school of basketball evaluation. It’s something he’s highlighted since arriving in Oakland last year, and he makes sure to keep bringing it up. For some, his lack of creative vocabulary has become a drain. Watching him speak, I understand why. There is little change game-to-game in the Warriors Head Coach. His demeanor is the same, his tone is the same, and for the most part, depending on the game’s outcome, the words are the same. He’s not the kind of guy that is going to keep your attention by being new and creative. But something I feel like I’ve grown to know about Jackson is that he can be counted on.
If the Warriors win, he can be counted on to talk about how hard the fought, how much they “battled,” and how they play so hard to get the

Nobody makes a fuss about who is the second best of anything in the NBA, as everyone always talks about who is the top dog, but there are some times when second best is still incredible.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jarrett Jack has been a rock-steady pro for eight years now, the kind of reliable performer contending teams crave.
Even though he is still coming off the bench for Golden State, he's found himself in more of a starring role lately, and he showed the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday that he is equally comfortable as the leader of a playoff-caliber unit.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Maybe these new-look Golden State Warriors are winners after all.

Awesome speech by Golden State Warriors coach, Mark Jackson, to his team during a timeout in overtime with the Spurs. GSW hadn’t beaten San Antonio in the last 16 meetings, but they followed their coach’s inspirational advice and got the job done.

The Golden State Warriors were in need of some momentum as they trailed the San Antonio Spurs by five points in the fourth quarter on Saturday night. David Lee tried to provide that spark during an in-bound play, but he failed miserably.
As you can see from the video above, Lee tried to make it look like he was fouled by Tim Duncan while the Spurs were waiting to get the ball inbounds...
Ben Affleck may get shat upon by the hip and snarky, but he had the last laugh when his film Argo walked away with the Best Picture Academy Award (TM) (C) ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCbzzzt.

This will be the second meeting between the two teams this, but the first that Stephen Curry will be involved in. Curry was injured during their first matchup and Golden State substituted Jarrett Jack in the...
Every year, there’s a handful of guys that are waiver wire whores and bounce back and forth between owners for spot starts. It’s like the freshman co-ed dorm; you feel entitled if you’re the first to have one of em riding your roster, but then you feel dirty if you claimed them next. Enter Jarrett Jack, who before settling into his probable NBA 6th Man Award role, got run...
