2013 NBA Playoffs: Barnes Takes Hard Fall

Since the second half of game two Klay Thompson has had a hard time scoring the basketball against the San Antonio Spurs. He will need to step up   his game as rookie Harrison Barnes got hurt right before halftime after a hard fall while contesting a shot attempt by Boris Diaw who traveled before he got fouled. Before leaving the game Barnes had scored eight points on 4-7 shooting. The good news is that after a few minutes he was able

2013 NBA Playoffs: If Warriors Are To Advance Thompson Has To Show Up

The Golden State Warriors face a must win at home on Thursday night after getting blown out by the San Antonio Spurs in game five on the road.

2013 NBA Playoffs : Heat Push Bulls To Brink, Why It’s All Over In Chicago.

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]HICAGO – No Derrick Rose, no Luol Deng, no Kirk Hinrich, the only thing that’s left to do in these 2013 NBA playoffs is to throw in the proverbial towel. As if the under-manned—and hilariously—out-matched Bulls had a chance against the defending champions from South Beach would be akin to a mild case of delusion and serial folly, it’s safe to say that being down 3-1 with Game 5 in Miami,

2013 NBA Playoffs: Warriors Dominate Overtime To Tie Series

Poor shooting, a long stretch without a field goal, fouls and turnovers played a major role in the first half for the Golden State Warriors in game four against the San Antonio Spurs. Stephen Curry hit two threes for an early six points and Mark Jackson wisely limited his minutes, Andrew Bogut and Carl Landry each picked up three fouls, Andris Biedrins did provide a lift with his defense and rebounding and Harrison Barnes provided the offense. Still at halftime trailed by eight. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili each scored 14 points at the break,

2013 NBA Playoffs: Will Stephen Curry Play In Game 4?

Stephen Curry is a game time decision for game four on Sunday afternoon after twisting his left ankle in the fourth quarter during game three. He did stay in the game until the San Antonio Spurs sealed the win to take the 2-1 series lead. If Curry cannot go it means that Jarrett Jack will start in his place. A role that he won't have trouble adjusting too as he averaged nearly 30 minutes per game during the 2012-2013
