WARRIORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Warriors' all-time defense sends Blazers reeling home

This is the best defense in the league, and perhaps of all time. Damian Lillard sat at his locker after one of his greatest career performances, trying to recollect and gather his thoughts in the aftermath of the storm. Ensconced in the silence of it all, he stared blankly ahead before departing for his postgame presser. "As the game was winding down, I was just like man, this...

Draymond Green hilariously froze for 19 seconds in press conference

Draymond Green came within three assists of a triple-double in a Game 2 win over the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday as the Warriors continue to roll without Stephen Curry. Green was even more zoned in for Festus Ezeli's reply to a reporter in the postgame press conference. Green blinks at the three-second mark and then doesn't move a muscle for 19 seconds. This is the clearest evidence...

Draymond Green on Klay Thompson: 'He's the best shooting guard in the league, period'

The Golden State Warriors have not lost a game since Stephen Curry sprained his knee in the first round. They still look dominant, with small-ball lineups that impose Rubik's Cube-level puzzles on the opposition. Their defense is still a bear trap.But Curry's absence is big-picture relevant. It forces Draymond Green and Klay Thompson to assume larger roles than they're used to, and...

CJ McCollum says Warriors set ‘a lot of illegal screens’

The Portland Trail Blazers were poised to even their series against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night until they blew an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter. If you asked Blazers guard C.J. McCollum, he might tell you the officiating had a lot to do with it. McCollum says Klay Thompson, who scored a game-high 27 points, has been difficult to defend because the Warriors...

One Beat (Warriors 110, Blazers 99)

The Warriors' electric come-from-behind win over the Blazers in Game 2 captured what I love most about this team.  It wasn't the Warriors' stifling fourth quarter defense, which allowed only two baskets over the game's final 5:20.  It wasn't the sense of inevitability, as the team roared past Portland in a dominant 17-4 crunch-time run.  It wasn't Klay Thompson's threes, Shaun...

Warriors/Blazers Pre-Game 2: Speed Trials

The Warriors have been tripped up more by success than adversity this season.  So following the decisive Curry-less wins in Game 5 of the Houston series and Game 1 against Portland, there's at least some risk that the Warriors' focus begins to slip.  When things become too easy, the Warriors start making mistakes that make things more difficult.  Portland remains a dangerous offensive...

Warriors' Varejao says tripping Henderson not intentional

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Golden State backup big man Anderson Varejao insists he didn't deliberately trip Trail Blazers guard Gerald Henderson in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal playoff series. Yet after watching the replay, he understands it sure looked like he did it on purpose. Portland coach Terry Stotts called it a ''dirty play'' on Monday. Then Tuesday, the NBA...

Byron Scott admits to giving ‘entitled’ D’Angelo Russell tough love

One of the prevailing — not to mention disconcerting — storylines during the Los Angeles Lakers’ disastrous 2015-26 campaign — outside of Kobe Bryant’s retirement, of course — was the seemingly dysfunctional relationship that existed between Byron Scott and rookie D’Angelo Russell. While Scott’s apparent feelings for the young player manifested itself in his outward...

Warriors determined to set defensive tone again in Game 2

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Andrew Bogut has taken to publicly calling himself unflattering names. Such was his mood Monday when someone inquired about the Golden State center often appearing mean and nasty. He used another word to basically refer to himself as a jerk - ''100 percent,'' he said.

The Blazers showed grit in Game 1, but they must win Game 2

The Golden State Warriors’ 118-106 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals could easily be placed in the “Really Not That Close” catagory. After all, the Dubs took a 20-point lead into the second quarter and never led by fewer than nine points the rest of the way. Klay Thompson was brilliant, hitting seven 3-pointers for the third...

Anderon Varejao and Gerald Henderson get into it, ejected from game

Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson got into one of the weirder scuffles you’ll see during Game 1 of the Blazers-Warriors series. Rather than putting their hands on one another, they went at it soccer-style. Henderson bumped into Varejao, and he didn’t like it, so the Cavs big man kicked his leg out and tripped Henderson. Things quickly got heated and they got in each other’s...
