Kevin Durant made scoring 20 points look easy against the Suns during a 138-109 win on Saturday, adding four rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

He needed just seven attempts from the field and made all nine from the line with just one turnover -- that's only a 16.2 usage rate. Durant's 91.2 true shooting percentage tonight boosted him to 68.0 on the season, which moves him back into the top spot on the season -- Patty Mills is No. 2 at 67.8. Durant also has 3.2 blocks per game in his last five. He's the number one player in fantasy right now.
Dec 4 - 2:05 AM

Stephen Curry needed just 30 minutes to score 31 points against the Suns on Saturday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

He went bonkers in the third quarter with 20 points. This was the 16th time in his career he scored at least 20 in a quarter with nine of those 16 coming in the third. Curry has been incredible in the second half at home, posting a 71.1 true shooting percentage in those 10 games. He's being out-shined a bit by Kevin Durant, but Curry's efficiency is almost as good as it was last year. He's been a top-five player in standard leagues.
Dec 4 - 2:00 AM

Klay Thompson scored 26 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers against the Suns on Saturday.

He was already tearing it up in his previous eight, averaging 22.8 points, 4.3 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.8 treys on 47.8 percent from the field. Surprisingly, his six treys tonight were a season high, but he didn't go to the line for the sixth time this season. This big game has him at fifth-round value on the year, but he has an upward trend.
Dec 4 - 1:49 AM

JaVale McGee scored a season-high 11 points against the Suns on Saturday with two rebounds in 13 minutes.

The season high is cool, but the real highlight was JaVale McGee taking the ball out of bounds after the Warriors made a free throw (video in link below). Never change, Pierre. Never change.
Dec 4 - 1:43 AM

Draymond Green is not expected to receive further discipline for his kick to James Harden's head from Thursday night.

Green's high-kick flailing has been a problem and the league will continue to watch him on plays like that. It's not going to be easy for him to break his habit because it's just how he plays and the move is second nature to him. He'll be all set for Saturday against the Suns at Oracle Arena.
Dec 2 - 3:26 PM

Kevin Durant matched his season-high 39 points on 12-of-28 from the field during a 132-127 double-overtime loss at home to the Rockets on Thursday, adding 13 rebounds, two assists, three steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

The Warriors were not in a good rhythm on offense and Draymond Green said KD was stuck with some tough shots. Durant went 1-of-7 in OT and said he wasn't tired and just missed his shots, so at least that's a positive with Durant playing 49 minutes. KD has also lost his lead for true shooting percentage with Patty Mills leapfrogging him, but he's still the No. 1 player in standard leagues.
Dec 2 - 3:22 AM

Stephen Curry scored 28 points against the Rockets on Thursday with three rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It's the first time he's fouled out since 2013, which coincidentally was the last time the Rockets beat the Warriors. The Warriors and the Rockets were bombing treys for a record 88 attempts to shatter the old record of 82, which was set last week. Curry's minutes are also surging these days with at least 36 in four straight. He is the No. 4 player in standard leagues.
Dec 2 - 3:14 AM

Draymond Green scored a season-high 20 points against the Rockets on Thursday, adding 15 rebounds, nine assists, one block and two steals in 47 minutes.

He was hit with a flagrant foul in overtime for kicking James Harden in the head, so the league may take a look at it given his history. Although, he may not get an additional punishment and it didn't look as bad as some previous cases. He did say he was confused by the flagrant and non-flagrant foul calls and said he'll go read the rule book, so he may get a fine for that, too. On the season, Green's numbers have held steady with only a dip in scoring and an increase to his defensive stats. He's holding first-round value in standard leagues.
Dec 2 - 3:09 AM

Andre Iguodala scored 10 points in 42 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday with four rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers.

They went with the Mega Death lineup a lot in this loss. Before Thursday, coach Steve Kerr used that lineup for 5.3 minutes in 15 games, but that lineup was used for 15.8 minutes tonight. Iguodala's minutes won't be this high too often and he's barely clinging to top-150 value for standard leagues. Expect Iggy to get a night off at some point, too.
Dec 2 - 2:58 AM

Zaza Pachulia played just eight minutes against the Rockets on Thursday, finishing with two points, three rebounds, one assist and one block

The Warriors just went with a small-ball fest in this game with a ton of Draymond Green at the five. Pachulia has seen his playing time slide and his injury history suggests the Warriors won't be giving him a bump in playing time the rest of the year while they're somewhat healthy.
Dec 2 - 2:20 AM

Draymond Green said he has no interest in winning 73 games this year.

"I don't know what the number 73 means," Green said. He said he cares about the home-court advantage, and wants to get better every time the Warriors step on the floor. Green said last year he was worried about getting the 73 wins and called the idea of it last year "dope." The Warriors have won 12 straight and lead the NBA in net rating at 13.0. The Warriors aren't resting players quite as much as anticipated, which could change once they lock up home court.
Dec 1 - 2:31 PM

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Damian Jones will have a hard time playing his way into Golden State's rotation.

Jones is currently in the D-League as he recovers from a pectoral tear, and Myers said he's unlikely to make a dent with the Warriors this season. "It's gonna be hard to crack our rotation," Myers said. "But he hasn't played basketball in seven months He needs to play a lot more basketball. But we're encouraged." Jones has some upside, but he isn't worth owning in any fantasy leagues after comments like that.
Dec 1 - 10:05 AM

Damian Jones has been sent back down for another D-League stint.

Jones will have a marginal role with the Dubs this season, so he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 30 - 12:10 PM

Stephen Curry stated during a recent interview that he doesn't see himself leaving the Warriors during free agency this offseason.

It's too early to be talking about free agency, but it would be an absolute shock to see Curry leave Dub Nation after the team made back-to-back trips to the Finals and installed a coach that won him back-to-back MVP honors. The Warriors will also be able to offer him the most money during free agency, thus tilting the odds in their favors. Curry is currently just the fourth-highest paid player in Golden State, but once he's maxed out this offseason, he'll own one of the richest contracts in the league.
Nov 30 - 9:49 AM

Ian Clark (throat) played 11 minutes on Monday with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and two treys.

He hit a couple of big shots tonight and he's the reason why we're not seeing a lot of Patrick McCaw in the rotation. Leave Clark on the wire while the Warriors are healthy.
