Steph Curry hustled up the floor with just five second left and hit this ridiculous high arching lay-in to beat the half-time buzzer against Oklahoma City in game seven….. Steph beats the buzzer!
Klay Thompson poured it on and Steph Curry hit the biggest shot of the game as he nailed this floating bank shot that put OKC away and forced a game seven…… Steph banks it in! https://t.co/1yXYdD9sZt — Crossover Chronicles (@crossoverNBA)
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 […]
The Golden State Warriors have a challenge in their Game 5 showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder that is unique in scope. They have two huge problems that need to be solved independently of each other, meaning that solving just one won’t be enough. The Warriors, as it turns out, had an Achilles Heel. For […]
The Golden State Warriors took a 13 points lead to half-time of game one against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Steph Curry scored 13 first half points including this three pointer to close out the half….. Curry at the buzzer…SPLASH!
Steph Curry’s return lifted the Golden State Warriors over the Portland Trail Blazers in game four of their series. Curry scored an NBA record 17 points during the overtime period. Here’s a look at his performance……
People are starting to notice that the Golden State Warriors are pretty good, even without Steph Curry. This takes a little getting used to, the notion that a team can lose a transcendent player and still look at times like it doesn’t even miss him. In their second-round NBA Playoffs series, the Warriors outscored Portland […]
All of the excitement around the Golden State Warriors’ fabulous season, and all the predictions about where it would lead, had a caveat: “Unless Steph Curry gets hurt.” Okay, Curry is hurt. Depending on when you read this column, you might already know the extent of the injury to his right knee, suffered when he […]
Bruce Jenkins of the San Francisco Chronicle has covered the Golden State Warriors and the NBA for over 40 years. We talked several times last spring as the Warriors made their championship run, and I thought he would be the ideal guest to start our collection of 2016 playoff podcasts. In this episode, we talk […]
There’s an old saying about NBA playoff competitions: “The series doesn’t start until someone loses a home game.” Never has that been less true than in the Golden State-Houston first-round series. Houston “held serve” by winning its first home game Thursday night, so by the old axiom, everything is going according to plan. In reality, […]
As the 2016 Golden State Warriors’ season unfolded, the optimism always had one caveat. A significant injury to Steph Curry would mean all bets were off. Any other injury, even one as damaging as the ankle sprain that cost Andre Iguodala 17 games late in the season, could be dealt with. Take Curry off the […]
The first weekend of the first round of the NBA playoffs was so awful that a mildly tweaked ankle is one of the biggest stories out there. Of course, the fact that the ankle is connected to the rest of Steph Curry by surgically repaired tissue does raise the stakes a little bit. I was asked […]
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 — it was a “Where were you when?” sports night, and for most American sports fans, Kobe Bryant made it that kind of night. Is that a fact in the same way that 2 + 2 = 4? No. Nevertheless, in judging from Twitter and morning-after output by media outlets, Kobe’s […]
The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs came into Saturday night’s game under very different circumstances. Accordingly, they had different needs and wants. The Spurs have been rolling, were as healthy as they’ve been all year, and were playing at home. They had Friday off, and had enjoyed a blowout win on Thursday night […]
