MINNEAPOLIS — Jarrett Jack has been a rock-steady pro for eight years now, the kind of reliable performer contending teams crave.
Even though he is still coming off the bench for the Warriors, he’s found himself in more of a starring role lately, and he showed the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday that he is equally comfortable as the leader of a playoff-caliber unit.
Jack had 23 points and eight assists to rally the Warriors to a 100-99 victory over the Timberwolves. Read More

Parting ways with two young players came at another cost. Read More
New designs for the proposed Warriors arena on the San Francisco waterfront should be completed by the end of April, a team official said. That pushes the project-approval timeline back a few months, but is not expected to affect the projected opening date. Read More

OAKLAND — David Lee is a walking double-double. He leads the NBA in the statistical category this season with 33 in 52 games, and his career numbers are just shy of the mark at 14.7 points and 9.7 rebounds per game.
But Lee is often overlooked, accused of producing bloated stats on losing teams in New York and here in the Bay Area. Prior to this season, an anonymous scout in Sports Illustrated blasted him, saying he is “overrated” and “looking for his own numbers big-time.” Read More
At this point last year, the Warriors appeared to be stuck in no-man’s land. They had three quality players — Stephen Curry, David Lee and Monta Ellis — but were well on their way to missing the playoffs for the 17th time in 18 years. On top of that, they weren’t even bad enough to land one of the draft’s top three picks, where superstars such as LeBron James, Tim Duncan and Anthony Davis are usually selected. Read More
OAKLAND — A lot can change in 14 months, especially when your name is Jeremy Lin.
When Lin last stepped on the court at Oracle Arena, he was a mop-up point guard fighting to keep his career afloat.
But when the Warriors tipped off against the Houston Rockets in Oakland on Tuesday night, the Palo Alto native took center stage, completing one of professional sports’ most compelling rags-to-riches stories. Read More

But the Rockets, who matched an NBA record with 23 3-pointers and put up 140 points on the Warriors in the opener of that road trip a week ago, will be at Golden State tonight. The Warriors went on to lose those four games by a total of 83 points and are enduring their longest slide of the season. Read More
