Golden State Warriors
Mark Jackson had a major dilemma facing him and his team entering Game Two last week in Denver.
David Lee would be out for the remainder of the Playoffs with a torn hip flexor. Andrew Bogut, despite a strong Game One performance, had not put in performances like that one consistently throughout the season. It was unclear what Jackson could get out of him. Sure, Carl Landry can add some of the rebounding help but he cannot quite spread the floor like David Lee could.
And if there is one thing the Warriors can and must do, it is score. The defense is improved, but not elite by any means. To win in the postseason, Golden State has to score.
So Jackson began talking with his coaches and asked them to talk him out of a crazy idea for Game Two. Could he actually get away with replacing an All-Star power forward with a(nother) point guard in his starting lineup? would this be a gamble too big for the Playoffs?
The Warriors asisstant coaches did not talk Jackson out of the move. The...

Just about a week ago Javale McGee made everybody’s top 10 plays of the week by illustrating his new poster shot featuring Andrew Bogut in Denver. Bogut was probably the butt of all jokes in the locker room after the game. Eight days have past and Andrew took notes from Kevin Durant’s Gatorade commercial when he got his revenge on Dwyane Wade. Well...
The Golden State Warriors have traditionally been one of the worst excuses for a sports franchise in the country. This season marks the second time since the 1993-94 season that they have made the playoffs. So when their fans didn’t know what to do with the yellow t-shirt on their seat, who can blame them? But really, a t-shirt shouldn’t need directions.
Andrew Bogut threw down a nasty facial on JaVale McGee during the first quarter of Game 4 in Golden State on Sunday night. Watch Bogut receive the pass from Steph Curry and take it to the rim for the annihilation on McGee:
You didn’t know that Andrew Bogut was this much of a tough guy, did you? Bogut got busy during Game 4 between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets on Sunday. The Warriors big man threw down two awesome dunks in the first quarter. Above, you can see his monster dunk on JaVale McGee. As if jamming on McGee wasn’t enough, he stared down the Denver center. Keep in mind that...
There are flagrant fouls and then there are flagrant fouls… During game five between the Golden State Warriors/Denver Nuggets, Warriors center Andrew Bogut was called for a flagrant one foul when he pushed Denver forward Kenneth Faried in the neck/throat region:
Tweet Stephen Curry has been the breakout star of this season and even more so in the 2013 NBA Playoffs. His young Golden State Warriors have been shocking the league as they now hold a 3-1 lead over the Denver Nuggets in the first round. In game four on Sunday, though, it seemed like Curry [...]
At the conclusion of game five between the Golden State Warriors and the Denver Nuggets, a dejected group of Warriors players made their way off the court past a cheering crowd at the Pepsi Center.
One Denver fan in particular decided to some harsh words for Warriors guard Stephen Curry and at the twenty second mark of the below clip, you can see Stephen talking to the fan and pointing...
With the sixth-seeded Golden State Warriors surprisingly dominating the third-seeded Denver Nuggets 3-1 in their best of seven series, it’s time to start thinking about a potential Warriors/Spurs matchup in the second round.
I think most San Antonio Spurs fans would rather see Golden State than Denver, but there are definitely pros and cons to meeting the Warriors next round...

Jarrett Jack and his agent have re-enforced to Golden State Warriors management that he wants to re-sign with the organization this offseason, when the guard will become a free agent.
"Hopefully, I can stay right here," Jack said. "I told my agent. I’m sure he spoke to the powers that be that I have desires to stay right here and help this franchise grow to the...
Mark Jackson accused the Denver Nuggets of taking cheap shots at Stephen Curry during the Golden State Warriors' loss in Game 5.
Jackson said that Denver people warned him of what would take place with "inside info".
"They tried to send hit men on Steph," said Jackson. "It wasn't magic, they outplayed us."
Curry agreed that he seemed targeted...
Game 5 saw tempers flare on several occasions from both the Nuggets and Warriors, and the emotions spilled over into the postgame press conferences.
While giving the Nuggets their due for outplaying the Warriors, Mark Jackson also dropped this, uh, nugget, per Marcus Thompson:
“They were the more physical team. They were the aggressor. … They tried to send hit men on (Curry...
Golden State Warriors/Denver Nuggets: Game 5
- I do not expect the Nuggets to come out disheartened. I think they know the magic they have on the floor at home and will not take it for granted tonight.
- For the last three games, it has seemed like the Warriors have dictated the pace and style of play. Early on, the Nuggets seem to be back in their...
