LeBron James Nails Game-Winner In Final Seconds To Lift Heat Over Warriors (VIDEO)
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — With one eye on the defense and the other on the clock, LeBron James let the time tick down before carrying the Miami Heat into the All-Star break in a way only he could. James capped one of his best games of the season in dramatic fashion, making a step-back 3-pointer with less than a second remaining to propel the Heat past the Golden State Warriors 111-110 Wednesday night and into the break on a high note. "I was going for the win the whole time," James said. With teammate Dwyane Wade scratched from the lineup with a sore left foot, James shouldered the load for the two-time defending NBA champions. He finished with 36 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists, saving his best moment for last. After James' fellow All-Star Stephen Curry hit a bank shot to start a three-point play that put the Warriors ahead by two, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra chose not to call timeout. Instead, James got the ball in the half court and swished a 27-footer over Andre Iguodala wi...

Warriors will be without Bogut, Lee again
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
The Warriors will take the court without their starting big men for the second consecutive game when center Andrew Bogut and David Lee miss Saturday’s game against Phoenix. Lee will be sitting out for the third time in the past four games after trying to battle through shoulder, back and hip injuries since Jan. 20, and Bogut will be missing his second straight game with an inflamed shoulder. Head coach Mark Jackson said Jermaine O’Neal and Draymond Green will start, the same frontcourt he used in Thursday’s victory over Chicago. “We don’t have David’s post-up ability. We play through David at times, and we can also use him to catch [...]

Andrew Bogut, David Lee ruled out for tonight’s game vs. Chicago
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
With Chicago’s talented front line of Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer having already arrived at Oracle Arena, the Warriors announced that they won’t have the services of their starting big men Andrew Bogut and David Lee on Thursday. Lee has been struggling with a sprained left shoulder since the game against Indiana on Jan. 20. Bogut was briefly hobbled with a tweaked knee, but the Warriors say this injury is shoulder stiffness. Jermaine O’Neal is expected to start at center, with Draymond Green getting the call at power forward. “We will battle, compete and find a way to get it done,” Warriors head coach Mark Jackson said. “Carlos Boozer is [...]

O’Neal frustrated that Warriors aren’t drinking their “Superman Juice”
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
The worst is when you need a boost, and the Superman Juice is right there, and you don’t drink it. That’s the current plight of the Warriors, according to power forward Jermaine O’Neal. Golden State’s not only gone cold shooting the ball but has lost five of its last eight home games. Four of those setbacks were to losing teams. That’s simply no way to behave in front of a home crowd that’s filled up Oracle Arena for 61 straight games. “That’s something that we’ve got to relish, because there are a lot of arenas that are half empty, and have good teams,” O’Neal said after practice Wednesday. “This arena [...]

Huffington Post - over 4 years
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pau Gasol and Nick Young did a remarkable job keeping the Los Angeles Lakers together without their two injured stars. The Golden State Warriors had better take notes, because their injury problems just got worse. Gasol had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Young scored 14 of his 21 points in the second half, and the Lakers took advantage of Stephen Curry's absence for a 102-95 victory over Golden State on Friday night. Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake scored 14 points apiece as Los Angeles returned from four days off to win consecutive games for the first time all season. Jordan Hill added 10 points and nine rebounds as the Lakers clicked even without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash, hitting 11 3-pointers and outworking the prolific Warriors down the stretch. Los Angeles calmly maintained a big lead throughout the fourth quarter of its 11th straight home win over its upstate rival since March 2008. "We're finally finding some consistency," Gasol said.
