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 »

Hollinger: Warriors among offseason’s winners

ESPN’s John Hollinger wrote about the teams he considers winners in this NBA offseason. It’s an Insider article, so you may not be able to access it, but I’ll provide a link to the story just in case. Grouped in with the teams you’d expect to populate such a list (the Heat, the Bulls, etc.) are the Warriors. The team has had a pretty good month, trading for David Lee and locking up a potential starter at small forward (Dorell… Read More »
