Golden State Warriors
OAKLAND -- David Lee scored both right- and left-handed during a personal 8-3 flurry late in the game as the Golden State Warriors held off a Philadelphia 76ers rally en route to a 96-89 victory Friday night at Oracle Arena. Down 20 midway through the third period, the 76ers used a 17-3 burst to get back into the game. They trimmed the Warriors' lead to five at 82-77 with 8:09 left in the game following a pair of Lavoy Allen buckets. But Lee dropped in a right-handed hoop in the lane and followed with a pair of left-handed interior baskets to more than offset a Royal Ivey 3-pointer at the other end. And when Lee went outside for a 16-footer, the Warriors had a 90-80 advantage they we able to massage into their 20th win of the season. Lee (25 points, 12 rebounds) and backup Carl Landry (15 points, 11 rebounds) recorded double-doubles for the Warriors, who won for a 12th time in 14 games against Eastern Conference competition this season. Jarrett Jack added 16 points in an...

Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack throws the shoe of Philadelphia 76ers forward Dorell Wright 12 rows into the crowd. While laughing Jack then followed the shoe toss with a deep 3 pointer before they stopped play to retrieve the shoe.
Written By Clifford Sta Monica, Andrew Bynum’s mouth certainly contributed some to his stunted development but nearly as much as Kobe (and others) not feeding him the ball—and certainly not as much as Phil Jackson’s dumb decision not to play Andrew during the fourth quarters of dozens of games—particularly when the Lakers were getting their asses kicked under both boards...

Dorell Wright of the Philadelphia 76ers lost his shoe during a play in their game against the Golden State Warriors and Jarrett Jack took advantage of the situation, sort of. Jarrett picked up the shoe and tossed it in the stands, because he isn’t that nice of a guy.

Golden State guard Jarret Jack knows that loose objects on the court are a hazard to players and officials alike, and when you come across a hazardous object like a shoe without a foot in it, you do the the most reasonable thing possible at that moment.
You throw it 10 rows deep into the stands. In the name of safety, of course.
During the Warriors-Sixers...
OAKLAND, Calif. -- A 20-game winner before New Year's for the first time in 32 years, the Golden State Warriors don't need a lot of help these days.
