The latest Golden State Warriors and NBA news

Breaking down the Warriors’ schedule

The NBA released the regular-season schedules for every team in the NBA on Tuesday. The Warriors open at home against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. Then they go on the road and never come home. Or at least it seems that way with how many road games dot the first couple months of the season. The Warriors actually play four of their first five games at home. After that, Golden State has a brutal stretch in which it will… Read More »

Kawakami: Randolph deal could be for Love

Tim Kawakami writes in his Talking Points blog that the trade talks between the Warriors and Timberwolves might be a swap of Anthony Randolph for Kevin Love. Read the article here.

The first is a three-game winning streak for the Warriors — the first for the team this season. The Warriors have won consecutive games four times, but have yet to put together three in a row. If the Warriors can reach the first milestone — three consecutive wins — they’ll… Read More »

Is it too early to start thinking about John Wall?

I know it’s early. The Warriors still have 56 games to play. Andris Biedrins could return and lead a dramatic turnaround of a season that has gone even worse than the most pessimistic predicted. But I think it’s about time to come to grips with the reality of this season. Even if the Warriors start playing better when Biedrins returns, even if they manage to play .500 basketball the rest of the way, they’d still finish with 32 or 33 wins. So, maybe it’s time to start looking forward to the… Read More »
