Grit in the Gears (Warriors 89, Grizzlies 110)

The Warriors' style of basketball is built on cohesiveness.  Every player on the floor is connected and, to some extent, dependent on the others.  That cohesion is what makes the Warriors' play, at its best, so beautiful.  But it also makes the Warriors' particularly susceptible to one ill-fitting piece in their high-performance machine.  On Saturday night in Memphis, Anderson...

Draymond Green was motivated against Jazz by Snyder quote

There are few players in the NBA who are better at using disrespect as motivation than Draymond Green, no matter whether that disrespect is real or imagined.

The quote, sent to Green by...

Warriors rookie Patrick McCaw learns surrounded by big stars

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Patrick McCaw flings a football across two courts and hits Ian Clark right in the basketball numbers, then jokingly jumps in front of Kevin Durant moments later as if to make an interception against a superstar teammate with a height advantage and remarkable wingspan on the rookie guard.

Thompson wishes he played in 4th, could have scored 80

The most impressive thing about Klay Thompson’s 60-point performance against the Indiana Pacers Monday night is that he played just 29 minutes. The Golden State Warriors had such a commanding lead that Thompson didn’t even play in the fourth quarter, so he is now left to wonder what could have been. And, make no mistake about it, Thompson wanted to keep playing after he was...

It started after winning a jump ball, with Draymond Green throwing a perfect baseball pass to Stephen Curry.

Watson: Kerr advocating medical weed is a 'slippery slope'

Phoenix Suns head coach Earl Watson isn’t exactly on the same page as Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr when it comes to the medical marijuana discussion. As most are likely aware by now, Kerr made headlines when he admitted he used cannabis a couple of times to help him cope with extreme chronic back pain.

Warriors’ 12-game win streak comes to an end as Draymond Green continues to kick

Stephen Curry still commits silly fouls and Draymond Green still kicks people, as Houston Rockets snap Golden State’s 12-game win streak.
