WARRIORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Klay Thompson credits Yoda socks for record-breaking game

Speaking with Michael Lee of The Vertical, Thompson revealed the secret to his success. “I brought my Yoda socks to bring out my Jedi powers,” he said. Thompson’s 11 three-pointers from Game 6 is...

The Warriors meet their greatest challenge in Game 6

So what’s the problem? Why do I feel that the Warriors are fighting an uphill battle tonight in Oklahoma City? Home court. I’ve seen a lot of teams lose on their home floor, so I don’t look at home-court advantage as the determining factor when analyzing a matchup. Usually. This year is strange, folks. Look at the Eastern Conference Finals, where until Friday night the Cavaliers...

Game 5 was a treat, and the Warriors hope they can build on it

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 just as eager as the Warriors — and you — to see what happens in Game...

Warriors, Thunder taking turns beating each other in the opposite style

The Oklahoma City Thunder were never going to win Game 5. At least, that's what it felt like for most of the night - not against that team in that situation in that arena. Though for one long moment, as a Kevin Durant 3-pointer hung in the air with 35 seconds remaining, nobody managed a breath. For a moment, the impossible seemed suddenly plausible. But the ball caromed off the...

WATCH: Draymond Green kicks Andre Roberson in face

If we have learned just one thing during the Western Conference finals, it’s that Draymond Green apparently has no control over his own legs. The Golden State Warriors staved off elimination with a win in Game 5 Thursday night. For at least the third time this series, Green made sure someone ended up on the business end of his foot. Andre Roberson was the latest unlucky recipient...

WATCH: Stephen Curry dribbles through entire Thunder defense, scores

NBA Western Conference Finals Game 5: Warriors lead 58-50 at the half

The Warriors came out strong, but the Thunder will not go quietly into the night. Well, things have looked promising. Stephen Curry came out and had a few flurries. Draymond Green seemed like the player he was pre-#NutKickgate, and the Warriors lead by eight points at the half. However, the Thunder will not go away. They are a tenacious, irascible crew. So far?

The Warriors need emotional and tactical solutions

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.

More questions than answers for Golden State Warriors

A two-time NBA MVP, the league’s second-leading three-point man and basketball’s most versatile forward walk into a bar. They sit down, look at the television screen above them and, for the first time in seemingly forever, see someone else at the center of the basketball world.

Why Doesn’t Golden State Go Big?

This article was originally published on Pick and Popovich on May 25, 2016. Very few problems come from winning 73 games. Here’s one of them: when winning comes so easily, how motivated would any team be to experiment with alternative styles of basketball, just in case? Right now, the Warriors are getting absolutely blitzed in three areas: rebounding, fast breaks, and free...
