warriors switch identities in double-digit win over clippers


los angeles – instead of enjoying the nightlife here that could just worsen their championship hangover, the warriors stepped foot and accomplished something that happens to many in this city.the warriors went through a complete makeover. their star players dominated instead of coasting. their role players added some punch, instead of disappearing. they expanded leads instead of squandering them. they held onto the ball instead of giving it away.yes, the warriors looked like an entirely different team in a 141-113 victory over the clippers on monday, an offensive clinic that set an nba season high. “that looked like us,” warriors coach steve kerr said. the warriors (5-3) forged a new identity by making more than cosmetic changes. they showed a different personality than when they squandere

warriors lose shot at perfection in game 4 loss to cavaliers


cleveland — the warriors’ chance at playoff perfection died right before the finish line. now their shot at redemption will have to wait at least a few more days.in one of the wildest nba games in recent memories, the cavaliers pounced on the warriors early, shot themselves to a huge lead and staved off a sweep during an emotional — and often unhinged — second half, finishing off the warriors 137-116, to move this series to 3-1 heading back to oakland.in their three previous game 4s during these playoffs, all sweep-completers, the warriors pounced on dejected western conference opponents, leading the blazers by 23, the jazz by 22 and the spurs by 12 after the first quarter.it was the opposite on friday night. the cavaliers absolutely erupted right from the tip, scoring 14 points in the fir

how warriors secured win over sixers despite poor start


philadelphia – it took only seven seconds before warriors coach steve kerr called a timeout to chew out his players out for not running a play correctly. it took only 45 seconds into the second quarter before kerr called another timeout to express his displeasure for his players conceding yet another uncontested dunk.it all summed up kerr’s frustration with the warriors’ seemingly lack of desire to contest the sixers’ open lanes to the basket or pass the ball with any fluidity. it seemed the warriors finally faced a halftime deficit too steep for their talent and effort to overcome.and, just like that, the warriors proved otherwise. they secured a 124-116 victory over the philadelphia 76ers on saturday after putting together a historically great third-quarter effort to offset a horrificall

five takeaways from the clippers' latest lopsided defeat to golden state


the lens through which austin rivers viewed yet another lopsided clippers defeat to the golden state warriors was perplexing.“the other games they just beat us. i thought tonight we beat ourselves,” rivers said late thursday night after the clippers were soundly beaten by the warriors, 123-113.“i haven’t been able to say that in a long time versus steph [curry]. they’ve beaten us the last 10 games. i think tonight was the first time in a while we beat ourselves. i think we can beat them. they have a lot more discipline than us right now for the full 48 minutes. so we’ve got to learn from that.”1. the clippers indeed have lost 10 straight games to the warriors, and all four losses this season have been by double digits, the average margin being 21.5 points.the clippers caved when the warrio

warriors show mixed progress in win over mavericks


dallas – everything seemed almost perfect, as the warriors’ shots splashed into the net while showing the kind of defensive discipline reserved for clinics. during garbage time on a fast-break, warriors rookie jordan bell threw the ball off the backboard and slammed it home.as the warriors have shown so far in the 2017-18 season, though, they have often broken their old habits that once made them great.the warriors’ 133-103 victory over the dallas mavericks on monday may have satisfied a bottom-line result as stephen curry (29 points), kevin durant (25), klay thompson (21) and draymond green (10) stuffed the box score. after winning two nba titles in the past three years, however, the warriors (2-2) have higher aspirations than just avoiding their worst start since opening the 2009-10 seas






warriors overcome turnover issues with win over sixers


oakland – whenever warriors coach steve kerr scans the boxscore, he immediately zeroes in on two things that could either propel his team to greatness or expose its weaknesses.kerr looks at the turnovers, since the warriors’ fast pace and recklessness can give their opponents easy baskets. kerr also centers on the team’s field-goal attempts, mindful that a league centered on quality of possessions.and in related news, the warriors secured a 135-114 victory over the philadelphia 76ers on saturday at the oracle arena and a sixth consecutive win after finally addressing those issues. on the surface, it appears the warriors simply needed the return of kevin durant (29 points, five rebounds, four assists) and the daily dose of klay thompson (23 points) and stephen curry (22 points, nine assists

warriors beat spurs to take stranglehold on west's top seed


san antonio — a 22-point spurs lead disappeared quickly. the warriors, in danger of getting run out of the building early, see-saw’d all the way back in front late in the third quarter.and to punctuate that massive swing — eventually ending in a 110-98 warrior win — they victimized an old friend: david lee, a former warrior all-star turned spurs reserve. he went up for a needed late third quarter layup, but was stripped by andre iguodala, who pushed it upcourt to steph curry for a runout dunk — his second slam of the season — complete with a strut.and if that wasn’t enough, seconds later, lee rose for a dunk on the other end and draymond green, the warrior who ripped away lee’s starting spot three years back and helped jumpstart this franchise renaissance, met his former teammate at the su
