The Golden State Warriors set their franchise record for consecutive wins in a row on Saturday night with their defeat of the Chicago Bulls 112-102. It was their 12th straight victory, giving them an NBA-best 17-2 record. Golden State’s win ended their five game losing streak at the United Center. The Bulls were the first real test the Warriors have faced during their now twelve game win streak, earning victories along the way against lesser teams like the Lakers, Jazz and

Bernucca: West’s Advantage Over East Bigger Than Ever

Warriors

Leave it to Jeff Van Gundy to use the holiday season as another outlet for his vastly underrated sense of humor. During Wednesday’s ESPN telecast of New York-Dallas, the analyst said he was thankful that there were not two Eastern Conferences. But as Thanksgiving quickly morphed into the Christmas shopping season, perhaps Van Gundy could ask Santa Claus for another Western Conference. Because that would allow us to throw out the Eastern Conference with all the torn wrapping paper, ugly sweaters and

SH Blog: Love not thrilled with his role on offense, SVG fires back at Markieff Morris

Bron KLove Ky

It wasn’t supposed to be like this for Kevin Love when news broke that he would be joining LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland over the summer. Sure, he was supposed to sacrifice like everyone else. That’s expected when you build a super team like this because there is only one basketball to go around. Just ask Chris Bosh, who went from averaging 24 points in Toronto to never sniffing 20 points again (regularly in the 18-point range) when he

Fantasy Spin: Cavaliers & Celtics on Scoring Sprees

Rajon Rondo

As predicted, Golden State was up 74-55 at halftime and rolled to a 21-point victory over the Lakers on Sunday. Stephen Curry and Marreese Speights were great to own, but my attempt to stack seven Warriors did not pay off. The shocker was Houston scoring just 69 points — and winning! That ruined the day of everyone who paid top dollar for James Harden and Dwight Howard.

Tweet of the Night: Bill Simmons not thrilled about Celtics loss to Cavaliers

The 2010 New Yorker Festival: In Conversation With Malcolm Gladwell

Friday night was a milestone-reaching one for Rajon Rondo, who passed Paul Pierce for fourth all-time in Boston Celtics franchise history for assists. Unfortunately, the point guard also came up with some dubious plays down the stretch that contributed to the 122-121 loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Celtics were up 19 points heading into the fourth quarter and were well on their way to an even record of 4-4. Instead, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving scored a combined 25 points in the

SH Blog: Kerr says Curry has been best defender on Warriors so far, Lakers may go hard after Rondo next summer

Stephen Curry

We all know that Stephen Curry is a wizard when it comes to doing things on offense. The gifted point guard, who puts fear into the opposition with his ability to pull up for a shot at any given moment – with pinpoint accuracy – can also pass with the best of them. Because his ability to handle the ball has gotten better just about every year since he entered the league, Curry is one of the most unique and challenging
