Golden State Warriors
San Antonio Spurs
The Golden State Warriors never relented. They didn't back down when Andrew Bogut sat out rehabilitating his left ankle. They didn't buckle when they lost Game 1 at Denver. And they didn't quit when All-Star forward David Lee tore his right hip flexor in that playoff opener - and neither did Lee, for the matter.
For only the second time in 22 years, the Bay Area's only NBA team is heading to the second round.
Stephen Curry had 22 points and eight assists, Bogut broke out with the best performance of his injury-saddled season and the Warriors eliminated the Nuggets with a 92-88 victory in Game 6 on Thursday night.
''Just a huge win in front of our fans. I've only been here a year, but I know the nightmares they've been through in the last 20 years,'' Bogut said. ''They're enjoying this as much as we are.''
Bogut had season-bests and career-playoff highs of 14 points and 21 rebounds, and rookie Draymond Green added a care...

COME OUT AND PLAY
Steph Curry is deadly in the third quarter, and he proved it with this behind-the-back dribble before feeding Andrew Bogut for a huge dunk.
Let's get this straight right up top. The Golden State Warriors are not expecting to have All-Star forward David Lee back for their second-round series against the San Antonio Spurs.
"There are no expectations about David's role moving forward," coach Mark Jackson told the Oakland Tribune.
With that all said, there is a chance.
"It depends on how he&...
(Eds: Updates with quotes, details. With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer Sitting in the training room at one point earlier this season, Andrew Bogut wondered what Warriors point guard Stephen Curry must have thought about him after all the talk in the Bay Area about the two forming a potent inside-out combination.
''He was probably thinking, `What did we...
In a shocking turn of events, Golden State Warriors forward David Lee dressed for last night's Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets. Lee -- who had reportedly been shut down for the season with a torn hip flexor -- saw one minute of action, as the Warriors eliminated the Nuggets and advanced to the second round of the playoffs.Lee didn't participate in pregame warmups, but...

Remember when David Lee recently tore his hip flexor, and he was assumed to be out for the season. Reasonable, considering the injury, right?
Well, this is the playoffs. And David Lee is apparently full aware. Defying all odds, and knowing that his Golden State Warriors are in the middle of a heated series with the Denver Nuggets, he has been cleared to play and could play a few...
I just find it incredibly ironic that Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson was accusing the Denver Nuggets of playing dirty last night, and here is one of his players committing the hardest and most dangerous foul of the game.
During the second quarter of Game 5 of the first round match up between the teams, Warriors center Andrew Bogut pushed Nuggets forward Kenneth...

All-Star forward David Lee made a surprising return for the
Golden State Warriors in Game 6 against the Denver Nuggets on
Thursday night after not dressing the previous four games with what
the team had called a season-ending hip injury.
-It’s playoff basketball which mean players are banged up but will doing everything in their power to play. All you have to do is look at David Lee of the Golden State Warriors. Lee was ruled out of the playoffs a couple of days ago but he was cleared to play last night.

Lost in the recent hype of the Golden State Warriors playoff series win over the Denver Nuggets is how bad this team was only a season ago, and the season before that, etc. They started the 2012 campaign with two great players playing the same position. One was an entrenched fan favorite capable of scoring at will, the other a young phoneme touted as the next great shooter but whose...
