Don't Expect The Warriors' Rocky Stretch To Define Their Year
Huffington Post - 4 months
Draymond Green is the positionless, mercurial All-NBA selection for the Golden State Warriors. And in case you haven’t heard, he isn’t one to mince words. So when he tells reporters that “teams are trying to punk” the Warriors, he means it. But whether or not Green appreciates the fact, there’s a good chance that such treatment will only accelerate the team’s growth. That’s what happens when the NBA’s all-time winningest single-season team goes out and poaches Kevin Durant, creating an embarrassment of riches the rest of the world can only envy. During the Warriors’ 106-100 defeat of Phoenix last week, Suns guard Brandon Knight knocked over Stephen Curry after he made a 3-pointer. It was a blatant foul, but officials didn’t call it as such. Curry retaliated, shoving Knight into the stands and receiving a personal foul. In sports, one year can make all the difference, and the Golden State of today compared to last season is a perfect example. As Jerry West ― w ...

Warriors' perfect start being put to the test
Yahoo News - about 1 year
(Reuters) - Golden State extended their NBA record start to 19-0 with a narrow win over the Utah Jazz on Monday but that inevitable first defeat of the season may come sooner rather than later as they negotiate a tough road stretch and injuries start to bite. Playing without forward Harrison Barnes, who will miss at least three games with a sprained left ankle, the Warriors needed a late surge to get past the Jazz 106-103 in Salt Lake City, the opener of a seven-game trip away from Oracle Arena. The Warriors keenly felt the absence of Barnes, who was averaging 13.4 points per game, and after trailing late into the final quarter needed the heroics of Stephen Curry to stay perfect.
