Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut called out the Houston Rockets following the contested game between them.
With the return of Andrew Bogut, the Golden State Warriors are finally at full strength and the defensive backbone of the team has returned. With a team full of offensively gifted players, headlined by Stephen Curry and David Lee, Bogut does not need to carry any type of offensive burden. like he did in Milwaukee and can stick to what he does best, defend the paint, block shots in...
Warriors point guard Jarrett Jack is questionable for Friday’s contest against the Grizzlies, according to Rusty Simmons of the Chronicle.
Jack didn’t practice Thursday and missed Wednesday’s 119-98 loss to the Thunder with a right shoulder contusion.
Jack has been an anchor off bench this season for the Warriors. But the second unit struggled with production and establishing...
After averaging 18.0 points, 14.3 rebounds, 7.8 assists and helping lead the Warriors to a 4-0 record last week, David Lee was named by the NBA as the Western Conference player of the week.
The accolades are starting to pile up this season for Lee. This is his second time this season earning conference player of the week recognition (third overall) and was named as a reserve to...
The Rockets went off Tuesday night against the Warriors, scoring a staggering 140 points, thanks largely to an NBA-recording-tying 23 3-pointers made. They were gunning for the outright record in the waning minutes of the game, but the Warriors would be damned if they were going to let a record be broken on them.
They fouled hard when a Rocket would attempt a 3, milked the clock...
Andrew Bogut was upset with the Houston Rockets for running up the score Tuesday, so he responded by calling them out over Twitter after the game.
Bogut called the Rockets a dirty name while referencing the next meeting between the teams in his incredibly crafted tweet:
C U Next Tuesday fellas!

Andrew Bogut will sit out Wednesday's game to rest his ankle. It's a back-to-back game, so this was expected. Andris Biedrins should get the start.
But there's a surprised scratch: Jarrett Jack. Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson reported that the backup point guard is out with a bruised shoulder. He's questionable for Friday's game.
The plan for Andrew Bogut upon coming back to the lineup last week was to sit out the second game of a back-to-back until the all-star break to minimize stress on his recovering left ankle. That plan provides an interesting predicament for the Warriors this week with the Rockets and Thunder on the docket for a back-to-back, beginning on Tuesday.
Do you have your starting center play...
OKLAHOMA CITY Funny how beating up on Dallas and Golden State in a two-game span does wonders.
For attitude. For national perception. For general well-being.
Hey, it's not like these guys are made out of wood. Everyone has feelings, and sometimes a little confidence boost is a good thing even for a team as good as the Thunder.
Monday, Dallas played the role of slump-buster...
After giving up a record 23 three pointers in Houston on Tuesday night, the Warriors (30-18) hope to bounce back in Oklahoma City.
However, the task at hand will not be easy as the Thunder have the second best record in the NBA at 36-12 and are a scorching 21-3 at home. On top of the unfavorable matchup, the Warriors had some trouble flying from Houston to Oklahoma City and did not...
Good win for the Thunder. Warriors fans spent more time complaining about their own players than the Thunder. They also got the obligatory “This is rigged” and “the refs are giving OKC the game” posts in there but at least it wasn’t as much as usual. That first picture is pretty funny. My favorites are [...]
If we are talking about athletic guards in the NBA, there are few like Oklahoma City guard Russell Wesbrook.During tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors, watch as Russell in transition makes an incredible scoop lay-up after a block by Serge Ibaka:
