Did we just witness the greatest win in Warriors history?

Being a high school saxophone player in the Bay Area, I pretty much grew up with Tower of Power. One of the group’s more memorable album covers, shown in the cover image above, is also the immediate headline after Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals: BACK TO OAKLAND. I’m not going to pretend I was the first one to think of this next statement. Here’s the tweet that started...

Adam Silver defends Draymond Green suspension decision

Adam Silver heard all that chatter about the NBA refusing to suspend Draymond Green because they didn’t want to interfere with a competitive series. He doesn’t like it one bit. Silver appeared on ESPN Radio on Sunday and refuted the talk of pro-Warriors conspiracy theories, saying that the league office deemed Green’s kick to Steven Adams’s groin reckless, but unintentional...

Klay Thompson put the Golden State Warriors on his back when they needed him the most on Saturday night, scoring 41 points and breaking the NBA record for most three-pointers made in a playoff game.

Klay Thompson felt he should have made more three-pointers

Klay Thompson set an NBA playoff record with eleven made three-pointers in Saturday night’s clutch win against Oklahoma City. Impressive, right? Well, in Thompson’s mind, it was underwhelming. Thompson believes he missed out on a chance to hit even more threes, feeling that he should have had at least 13. Klay Thompson on his record-setting 11 threes: "I should've had at...

The Warriors meet their greatest challenge in Game 6

So what’s the problem? Why do I feel that the Warriors are fighting an uphill battle tonight in Oklahoma City? Home court. I’ve seen a lot of teams lose on their home floor, so I don’t look at home-court advantage as the determining factor when analyzing a matchup. Usually. This year is strange, folks. Look at the Eastern Conference Finals, where until Friday night the Cavaliers...

Game 5 was a treat, and the Warriors hope they can build on it

The Golden State Warriors can’t dwell on Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. Their attention must turn to Game 6 on Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. If they don’t win Game 6, the value of Game 5 will vanish. The memory of Thursday night’s win will recede into the mists of history. I’m just as eager as the Warriors — and you — to see what happens in Game...

Warriors, Thunder taking turns beating each other in the opposite style

The Oklahoma City Thunder were never going to win Game 5. At least, that's what it felt like for most of the night - not against that team in that situation in that arena. Though for one long moment, as a Kevin Durant 3-pointer hung in the air with 35 seconds remaining, nobody managed a breath. For a moment, the impossible seemed suddenly plausible. But the ball caromed off the...

Draymond Green kicked Andre Roberson in the Face (video)

The Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green might have a future in MMA. Already in hot water for kicking Steven Adams of the Golden State Warriors in the groin but somehow avoiding a suspension, one would think Green had a mind to chill out with the violent moves. Or not. During Golden State’s 120-111 vicotry in Game 5 to stay alive, Green delivered a vicious kick to Andre Roberson’s...

More questions than answers for Golden State Warriors

A two-time NBA MVP, the league’s second-leading three-point man and basketball’s most versatile forward walk into a bar. They sit down, look at the television screen above them and, for the first time in seemingly forever, see someone else at the center of the basketball world. Questions come to mind. What if their golden flash of a season was just that, a flash? What’s huffing...

Right now, the Warriors are getting absolutely blitzed in three areas: rebounding, fast breaks, and free...
