PHOENIX, Ariz. -- When reporters entered the Golden State dressing room after Wednesday's season opener, Warrior stars Stephen Curry and David Lee joking covered their shoulders with towels and acted as if their teeth were chattering. "Don't come over here," Lee warned. "It's ice cold right here, man." But even with Curry and Lee combining to miss 26 of 30 shots -- and with Curry missing two free throws with a chance to ice the game in the final seconds to boot -- the Warriors used 14 first-half points from Brandon Rush and 12 of Carl Landry's 17 points in the fourth quarter to grind out an 87-85 win over the Phoenix Suns in a sloppy game at half-empty US Airways Center. Curry signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension on Wednesday and admitted the excitement of the day had him jittery and rushing his shots. He finished the night 2-for-14 -- Lee was even worse at 2-for-16 -- and didn't score until hitting a technical foul free th...

The Golden State Warriors and guard Stephen Curry have agreed to terms on a contract extension. The deal is for four years with an $11 million annual salary that starts next season, the Contra Costa Times reported Wednesday. Ankle problems have slowed Curry, a first-round draft pick in 2009.

Andrew Bogut is still nursing an ankle injury, and his status for tonight's opener against the Phoenix Suns is unknown. If Bogut plays, it will be a huge boost for the Golden State Warriors, a team looking to climb out of the cellar and into contention. The team, and most people around the league, realizes that Bogut will be a necessary part of any contender. Marcus Thompson...
I can’t honestly claim to have met Andrew Bogut, but he seems like a fine Australian gentlemen. With his endearing accent and charming wit, he comes across as the sort of fellow that would never be hard pressed to find a high five. However, in 2008, it became evident that this is not the case. Many of you probably recall Bogut’s comical reaction when his teammates failed...
While the stability of Stephen Curry's right ankle remains
uncertain, his financial footing with the Golden State Warriors has
never been more secure.

Andrew Bogut did full consecutive practices and should be good to go tonight. This is great news for Golden State and Coach Mark Jackson.
Bogut will play a huge role in the run that Golden State plans to make this season. Huge.
Andrew Bogut hasn't played in any preseason games.
Now he’s just got to stay healthy.
The Golden State Warriors seem to be buying into a different approach - similar to the one that worked for the Memphis Grizzlies last season.
Unlike Memphis, Golden State used a strong defensive effort to win its season opener and will try to continue that trend Friday night to avoid a seventh consecutive loss to the Grizzlies.
While the Warriors look to open 2-0 for just the second...
