As you can...
Golden State Warrior rookie Harrison Barnes already has one of the best dunks of the NBA season, and last night he added another to that list. During the 4th quarter of last night’s game versus Denver, Barnes beat Anthony Rudolph off the dribble. Then Barnes attacked the rim and threw down a nasty reverse dunk. The Warriors bench went crazy.
The Warriors blew out the Nuggets to...
As the Golden State Warriors shot 64.6% to beat the Denver Nuggets in game two of their first round playoff series, rookie Harrison Barnes scored 24 points in the 131-117 victory.

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.

And they would all be wrong.
The Warriors more than picked up the slack with Lee being...

Curry said he'll continue treatment...
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...
In the third quarter of tonight's Game 2 in Denver, Golden State led by a dozen, and were simply playing beautiful basketball. This wasn't a Road Steal Kind of Effort; they were simply hitting on all cylinders. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were raining down jumpers to the point of contagion.
