NBA Playoffs: Warriors vs Rockets Game Four Preview

Many predicted the result, but I imagine few people thought the Western Conference finals would play out quite like this. After showing a lot of fight in two losses at Oracle Arena, the Houston Rockets came home looking to even up their series with Golden State at 2 games apiece. However, they seemingly forgot how to do all the things that made Games 1 and 2 so close, dropping Game...

Stephen Curry’s Legendary Performance is Comparable to Greats of the Past

The Golden State Warriors may very well win the NBA title this season. They could do so in record fashion. For a previously struggling franchise to reach this level of excellence in such a short period of time. It’s been awe-inspiring. But none of that, in a vacuum, will compare to what Golden State did Saturday night against the Rockets in Houston. To be more specific, none of...

Warriors crush Rockets in Houston to take 3-0 series lead

That was the Golden State Warriors team that most Bay Area fans were accustomed to during the regular season. Coming off two less-than-stellar performances in Oakland, the Warriors took a 2-0 series lead against the Rockets into Houston Saturday night. They ended the night with a 3-0 lead after absolutely bullying James Harden and the Rockets by the score of 115-80. You read that...

Andre Iguodala waits for Rockets defenders during fastbreak dunk

Since the Golden State Warriors look like they will be moving onto the 2015 NBA Finals after an impressive game three victory in Houston, Warriors forward Andre Iguodala did something that I haven’t seen in awhile. In the fourth quarter of play, Andre came up a steal and looked like he was going to walk into an easy fastbreak dunk. That was until he decided to wait for Rockets...

Shaun Livingston: Golden State’s Unsung Hero In West Finals

Warriors a very shaky 2-0 against the Rockets

The Golden State Warriors did something over the last three days that I didn’t think was possible: They won the first two games of their Western Conference Final series against Houston without giving their fans any confidence whatsoever that they will win the series. Okay, maybe that’s a little strong, but if the 19,000 maniacs in Oracle Arena Thursday night were paying attention...

Stephen Curry doesn't understand controversy involving his daughter

A surprising controversy erupted earlier this week when Stephen Curry brought along his two-year-old daughter Riley to the podium with him following the Golden State Warriors’ win over the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

Draymond Green downplays sideline tussle with Trevor Ariza

Draymond Green is one of the most physical players in the NBA. He's also one of the loudest talkers, and finding him at the center of on-court "controversies" isn't uncommon.  During the second half of Game 1, Green briefly got into it with Rockets forward Trevor Ariza. A screen was set near the sideline, both players fell down and Green appeared to hold Ariza as he tried to get...

Warriors’ team concept is Houston’s problem

Stopping the Golden State Warriors is a little like putting a sweater on an octopus. You’re always going to have a couple of tentacles unaccounted for. Last night it was Shaun Livingston who refused to go where the Houston Rockets wanted him to. He scored 16 first-half points, more than he had ever scored in a half in his career, and every single one was desperately needed by...

Steve Kerr's intriguing chess move

I’ve heard that Steve Kerr, first-year head coach of the Golden State Warriors, hasn’t yet proven his effectiveness as a head coach because the elements of a successful team were already in Oakland when he arrived. Really, though, Kerr led this team to 16 more victories than they achieved last year with Mark Jackson at the helm—16 wins is a vast improvement no matter where...
