Life is Just a Fantasy ... Basketball...:
David Lee didn't look like a guy whose ankle was popping like Bubble Wrap on Monday. Lee scored 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the Warriors' 106-99 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
Lee made just five of his 16 shots, but added six assists (and five turnovers) in 39 minutes. Also surviving Monday's tilt: Stephen Curry.
Curry finished his 37 minutes with 28 points (9-14 FG, 4-4 FT) with six 3-pointers made, six assists and three rebounds.
Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best with these Warriors.

David Lee's ankle was "purple" and "popped and cracked like
Bubble Wrap" after the Warriors' win Saturday over the New Orleans Hornets, the SF Gate reported.
That doesn't sound like a guy who should be playing basketball Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers, but Lee has other plans: "You know I'm not missing that game."
Earlier this month when we last saw the Blake Griffin in Oracle Arena he treated all of us to an amazingly dreadful clunker that gave us this tremendous reaction from the Warriors bench, specifically Kent Bazemore:
On Monday, Griffin chucked up yet another ill-aimed shot that this time sailed clear of everything, prompting one more fantastic response from the Warriors reserves and...
The Warriors are playing in their traditional Martin Luther King Day matinee game against the Clippers on Monday. For the occasion, some players are wearing special edition kicks.
Here are some glimpse at the sneaks a few of the players are sporting:
Draymond Green and Festus Ezeli:
Kent Bazemore, hopefully knowing those are two...
The Golden State Warriors have surprised me a little bit this year. They upset the Clippers last night and moved to 25-15, which is currently the 5th spot in the Western Conference. Stephen Curry is averaging 20 points a game and almost 7 assists. None of his assists were close to as good as the one he had last night though. The announcer even gives him a Magic Johnson comparison...
Forward/center Jeremy Tyler was re-assigned by the Golden State Warriors to their D-League affiliate, Santa Cruz. Tyler, 21, has averaged 1.1 points and 3.1 minutes in 16 games with the Warriors this season. He has been shuttled up and down four times from Santa Cruz, where he is averaging 15.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 30.5 minutes in four games.
Warriors’ guard, Kent Bazemore, doesn’t see much action on the court, but his sideline antics/celebrations are some of the best in the league. Earlier in the season in a game vs. the Clippers, Blake Griffin bricked a three-pointer off the side of the backboard and a Warriors bench celebration ensued. Monday, Griffin gave them another treat as he airballed a three point attempt...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Jarrett Jack had 18 points and 10 assists, Stephen Curry made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and Golden State rallied from seven points down in the final 11 minutes to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 106-99 on Monday.

In the NBA, sometimes player celebrations can cause defense lapses and during Golden State's game against the Los Angeles Clippers earlier today, LA guard Chris Paul took advantage of it.After Golden State's Stephen Curry had hit a three-point shot, the Warriors defense had a mental lapse and allowed an easy bucket for CP3:
OAKLAND, Calif. - Both teams had almost the same reaction to the Golden State Warriors' 106-99 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday afternoon: No big deal. But given the circumstances, that was hard to believe. The Warriors used a late 9-0 run to complete a fourth-quarter comeback en route to their third victory of the season over the Clippers and a 3-1 season...
OAKLAND, Calif. - The Golden State Warriors turned a three-point deficit into a six-point advantage with a late 9-0 run Monday afternoon and then held on for a 106-99 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers that allowed the Warriors to win the season series from the Pacific Division-leading Clippers. The Warriors, who entered the game as the only team to have beaten the Clippers...
Jarrett Jack had 18 points and 10 assists, Stephen Curry made
four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and Golden State rallied from
seven points down in the final 11 minutes to beat the Los Angeles
Clippers 106-99 on Monday.
Good news: Stephen Curry will return for the Warriors Saturday night against the Pelicans Hornets. Bad news: David Lee will not be playing.
Curry returns to the Warriors lineup after the team went 0-2 in his absence due to yet another sprained right ankle.
From Rusty Simmons of the Chronicle:
Curry went through pregame agility drills with the Warriors’ head athletic trainer and...
