  • Warriors’ Lacob on Durant, Green: ‘We’re not choosing anybody over anybody’

    Joe Lacob has a message for Warriors fans. "I've read and heard all the things people are talking about. That we're choosing one person over another. We're not choosing anybody over anybody." The Warriors owner, of course, was referring to the one-game suspension of Draymond Green, following an ugly confrontation with Kevin Durant last week. Insults were hurled. Feelings hurt. And when the dust cleared, it was Green who sat out a game, without pay, costing him about $120,000. The star forward is...

  • Warriors get routed by Rockets as issues between Durant and Green linger

    HOUSTON — It is impossible to gauge just how much Kevin Durant’s problems with Draymond Green spilled into Golden State’s play Thursday night against the Rockets, but this much was certain: All is not right with the Warriors. In Houston for the first time since they escaped with a Game 7 win in the Western Conference Finals, Golden State failed to bring the energy the matchup demanded, slogging to a 107-86 loss at Toyota Center. In the wake of their third defeat in five games, the Warriors are...

  • With Draymond Green suspended, Warriors still prevail over Hawks

    The Warriors did the expected Tuesday night, pulling away in the second half for a 110-103 win over the Hawks at Oracle Arena. What wasn’t so anticipated, however, was that Draymond Green wasn’t there to enjoy it. A day after he got into a heated on-court exchange with Kevin Durant, Green was suspended for one game for what Golden State called conduct detrimental to the team. Without Green and Stephen Curry (strained left groin), the Warriors overcame a three-point halftime deficit, riding...

  • Warriors can’t capitalize on Klay Thompson’s late outburst in OT loss to Clippers

    LOS ANGELES - Klay Thompson adheres to a strict code: Regardless of how many shots he has missed, he'll continue to hoist jumpers.

After struggling much of the night Monday, Thompson unleashed one of his signature scoring binges, scoring 13 points in the fourth quarter to finish with 31 and lift the Warriors into an unexpected overtime. But with Stephen Curry sidelined by a strained left groin and Kevin Durant...

  • Draymond Green sets the tone in Warriors’ win over Pelicans

    A basketball savant, Draymond Green can anticipate plays before they unfold, name almost every NBA player's weaknesses and detail all five positions' responsibilities at any given moment. The problem: Because Green's on-court IQ is unmatched, he sometimes gets bored when not challenged. In the Warriors' 131-121 win Wednesday night over the Pelicans at Oracle Arena, Green was plenty occupied, which is usually good news for Golden State. With Green giving him little room to operate, New Orleans...
