For the first time in nearly 20 years, the Warriors have a representative on the All-NBA team.
Forward David Lee, who averaged 18.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per game this season, was named to the All-NBA third team on Thursday. The last Warrior to find his way on to any of the All-NBA teams was when Latrell Sprewell was a first-team selection in 1993-94. Read More
Even though the Warriors are eliminated from the playoffs, fans will have one more chance to rub shoulders with their favorite NBA team.
The Warriors are hosting an end of season celebration Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
Warriors players tentatively scheduled to appear include Stephen Curry, Harrison Barnes, Carl Landry, Kent Bazemore and Brandon Rush. Read More
The turnaround has taken place. The total transformation might not be far away.
And if they want to be considered true title contenders, the Warriors will have to develop their promising young talent even more and show they can be consistent — and consistently healthy — for longer stretches. Read More
If there is a bright spot in the Warriors’ playoff series loss to the San Antonio Spurs, it was the emergence of Harrison Barnes as a legitimate go-to guy.
With David Lee and Stephen Curry hobbled by injuries, the Warriors leaned on Barnes for offense throughout the series and he delivered until he left Game 6 with a headache.
“He certainly has elevated his game,” coach Mark Jackson said. “I think the sky is the limit for him.” Read More
The Warriors’ surprising season came to an end Thursday night, as they fell to the San Antonio Spurs 94-82 at Oracle Arena, losing their Western Conference semifinal series 4-2.
Golden State’s offense disappeared during the previous two games of the series, and Game 6 was no different. The Warriors shot 38.8 percent as a team and turned the ball over 12 times. Stephen Curry was the only real highlight, scoring 22 points on 10-of-25 shooting, including 2-of-7 from behind the arc. Read More
In 1975, I advocated that San Francisco build an indoor arena in the area where the Moscone Center is now. The arena would have accommodated the Warriors and an NHL team. A commission appointed to study the plan voted it down by a one-vote margin.
So, the Warriors stayed in Oakland. The NHL team eventually wound up in San Jose, where it has thrived as the Sharks.
Now, new Warriors owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber are proposing to build a grand new arena on the Embarcadero; Lacob has taken the reins on this project, as he has with the team. Read More
The best NBA playoff series often turn on one play, one shot, one moment. Robert Horry’s last-second 3-pointer against the Sacramento Kings, Derek Fisher’s buzzer-beater against the San Antonio Spurs, Reggie Miller’s missed free throws against the New York Knicks. The Warriors’ second-round series with the Spurs had all the ingredients of an instant classic after two games: a colossal choke job, a stirring upset and a double-overtime thriller. Read More
The Warriors’ offense was not good in their loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday. In past years, that was all previous Warriors teams had to rely on to win games.
Now, however, the poor shooting nights by Steph Curry and Klay Thompson — who played exceptionally well in the first two games of the series — was not what coach Mark Jackson wanted to focus on heading into the team’s first elimination game of the postseason. Read More
Tony Parker had 25 points and 10 assists, and the San Antonio Spurs held the Golden State Warriors' starting backcourt to 13 points for a 109-91 victory Tuesday night to take a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.
Kawhi Leonard added 17 points, Danny Green scored 16 and Tim Duncan had 14 points and 11 rebounds for San Antonio.
Harrison Barnes scored 25 points, Jarrett Jack added 20 and Carl Landry 16 for Golden State. No other Warriors player had more than nine points. Read More
Warriors first-year small forward Harrison Barnes was among those named to the NBA All-Rookie first team Tuesday. The 20-year-old out of North Carolina finished with a .439 field-goal percentage and averaged 9.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game through his first regular season.
Barnes is joined on the first team by the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Dion Waiters; the Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard; the league’s Rookie of the Year, the Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal; and the New Orleans Hornets’ Anthony Davis. Read More
