Tweet of the Night: Bill Simmons uses the word “max” to describe Draymond Green’s performance against Pelicans

Draymond Green Warriors

This shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone anymore, but Draymond Green played a key role in helping the Golden State Warriors take a 2-0 lead against the New Orleans Pelicans with a 97-87 victory on Monday in Oracle Arena. Green, who has been instrumental all season long for the Warriors on the defensive end of the floor and is a strong candidate to win this year’s DPOY award (although you’d never know it if you were listening to Charles Barkley


NBA players react to the final day of the 2014-2015 regular season

The 2014-2015 regular season finally came to a conclusion on Wednesday, perhaps fittingly, with the Golden State Warriors celebrating their league-best 67 wins over the Denver Nuggets in the final game of the night. Plenty of wild things happened on the final day: San Antonio Spurs dropped from the No. 2 seed to No. 6 after losing to the New Orleans Pelicans, who clinched a playoff berth with the victory and promptly sent the Oklahoma City Thunder packing for the summer thanks


Tweet of the Night: Rudy Gobert reveals his choice for Defensive Player of the Year

The 2014-2015 NBA season is just about over, which means the end-of-the-season awards will soon follow, such as the MVP, COY, MIP, etc. One of the many heated debates over who deserves to win what is the Defensive Player of the Year award. Many believed Draymond Green, who is widely recognized as one of the most important pieces on the Golden State Warriors defensively, had the award in the bag for some time. Then came other candidates like DeAndre Jordan, Rudy


Twitter reacts to Klay Thompson’s 37 points in the first half against the Memphis Grizzlies


Klay Thompson scored 37 points in one quarter earlier this season against the Sacramento Kings to set an all-time NBA record for points scored in a single quarter. He wasn’t quite that ridiculous on Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies, but found himself in another unconscious moment in the second quarter when he scored 26 points, finishing with 37 points overall in the first half on 14-of-17 shooting, including seven-of-eight from the arc. That shooting display pretty much blew the game open 68-46,


Twitter reacts to Stephen Curry’s record-breaking night

Stephen Curry

Maybe it was a statement game. Maybe it was just another game against Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers. Whatever the reason, Stephen Curry went off again on Thursday to the tune of 45 points on 17-of-23 shooting from the field – including eight-of-13 from the arc – to go with two rebounds and 10 assists. It marked the first time Curry has had at least 40 points and 10 assists together in a single game. More importantly, he managed


SH Blog: Sefolosha out for the season, Gerald Green’s agent puts Hornacek on blast, Cuban rips NCAA games and refs


By now, you’ve probably heard what happened to Chris Copeland, Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic. If you haven’t, here’s the back story. Nothing good at all has come of this situation, and the updates have gotten worse since Wednesday, starting with the status of Sefolosha, who suffered an injury significant enough to force him to miss the remainder of the season, from Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha suffered injuries during yesterday’s early morning incident. An examination of Sefolosha’s right leg, including an X-ray


Tweet of the Night: Mike Wilbon again critical of the Chicago Bulls


Mike Wilbon has not been a happy camper this season when it comes to the performance of the Chicago Bulls. The ESPN analyst has been putting the Bulls on blast through much of the season for one reason or another. He took a subtle shot against them earlier in the season, and a not-so-subtle shot here. Chicago has an overall record of 46-32 – good enough for a tie for third in the East – despite having various key players miss time


Tweet of the Night: DeMarre Carroll has some thoughts about his season through retweets


You hear all the time about the Atlanta Hawks being the San Antonio Spurs of the East under Mike Budenholzer. Al Horford, Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver were all All-Stars this year. The one guy who is hardly ever talked about is DeMarre Carroll – the Hawks’ own two-way player and fifth starter who is truly one of the most underrated and perhaps underappreciated players this season. Carroll, who is set to become a free agent in the offseason,
