So much for the Warriors being in for a world of hurt without David Lee.
The Warriors were able to even their series with the Nuggets at one game apiece with a 131-117 walloping sans their all-star power forward thanks to lights out shooting all game long across the lineup. Oh, and also Harrison Barnes officially declaring to the world he’d no longer like to be a rookie.
The Warriors shot 64 percent from the field, 56 percent from range and gave the Nuggets their first loss at home since Barack Obama was still in his first term as president. The series now shifts back to Oakland, where were the Warriors were 28-13 this season. The Nuggets were 19-22 away from Denver.
Stephen Curry followed up a rocky playoff debut in Game 1 with a much-improved showing Tuesday night. Curry dropped in 30 points and dished out 13 assists. Even when he was off to second straight unusually bad start shooting (he even airballed a three wide left), Curry was consistently finding open teammates for points...

Golden State Warriors forward David Lee will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his right hip flexor. He sustained the injury during Game 1 against the Denver Nuggets when he hit the ground hard following a foul. Lee told reporters – including Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle – that he had been playing through pain in his back for two weeks prior to sustaining...
After the Warriors David Lee's hip injury knocked him out of the playoffs, Pacers center Roy Hibbert offered his support ... in a really backhanded sort of way.
For the Golden State Warriors success is not something they are used to. In the last 19 seasons the team has made the post season one other time, in the '06-07 season. Otherwise you have to look back to the 1993-94 campaign--when Chris Webber was Rookie of the Year.
After a solid season this year the Warriors were looking to take advantage of a Nuggets team that had been hit...
When the Golden State Warriors lost David Lee for the duration of the post season it would have been easy to dismiss the Warriors from having any hope of moving forward. They are a good team, but good enough to overcome losing such an important piece of the puzzle? Many would say no.
And they would all be wrong.
The Warriors more than picked up the slack with Lee being...
Roy Hibbert took to Twitter Monday morning to express his dislike for David Lee, but to also wish him a speedy recovery as he will miss the remainder of the playoffs with a torn right hip flexor. Lee & Hibbert were involved in a shoving match in February while fighting for rebounding position and resulted in a mini-brawl between the Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors...
David Lee went from Golden State's All-Star power forward and double-double machine to the Warriors' biggest cheerleader and strategic adviser during timeouts.
Mostly, though, he just sat back and enjoyed the show Tuesday night when the Warriors stunned the Denver Nuggets 131-117 to even their playoff series at a game each.
The Warriors hardly missed much of anything. Not...
That scuffle between the Warriors and Pacers in February, for all the wrong reasons, was one of the more enjoyable moments of Golden State’s season thus far. To jog your memory, Roy Hibbert and David Lee got involved in a shoving contest, Hibbert went Incredible Hulk on Steph Curry, and Mychal Thomspon clowned his son.
For their efforts in igniting the fracas, Lee and Hibbert...
Golden State Warriors power forward David Lee is unfortunately out for the remainder of the playoffs after tearing his right hip flexor. The Pacers Roy Hibbert offered his concern, but was sure to let it be known that he doesn’t like Lee. Don’t remember why the two dislike each other? Find out Here

18.5 pts & 11.2 rebounds. That’s only the beginning of what the Warriors will be losing with the season-ending injury of David Lee who tore his right hip flexor in game one. According to Dan Feldman of NBC Sports, Lee’s presence on the floor has a direct...
Thoughts from Games 1& 2 of the Nuggets-Warriors series (Tied at 1)
*Warriors fans reactions to David Lee's injury best summed up here.
*This was a pretty tasty dunk from Mr. Barnes last night I will say.
*But is it better than this JaVale facial from game 1?
*The Nuggets were 38-3 on the season at home. They were playing a team w/out one of their...
I don’t think we have to worry about Indiana Pacers Roy Hibbert being tapped by Hallmark to write greeting cards any time soon. After Golden State’s David Lee went down with a leg injury and was announced as out for the remainder of the season, Hibbert sent him this tweet:
I really don’t like @dlee042 but I really hope he has a speedy recovery. Hate to see guys get get hurt...
The way in which Mark Jackson mixes his role as head coach of the Golden State Warriors with his ubiquitous Christian faith has been a topic of media conversation in recent days following a story by Mercury News' beat writer Marcus Thompson III that was referenced during ESPN's telecast of Game 1.
The Warriors have several players who identify themselves as Christians, most...
For the Golden State Warriors, game two of the 1st round of the NBA playoffs meant a couple of things. First, they would begin their playoff life post-David Lee, as Lee was done for the season with a hip injury, and secondly, they would be fighting to not fall behind the Denver Nuggets 2-0. Denver was the toughest place to play in the association this season, and the Nuggets showed...
