Lonzo Ball injured as Lakers stumble in overtime against James Harden, Houston Rockets

HOUSTON – It was as bright as the last 13 games has been for the Lakers: At one point on Saturday night, they had the game’s leading scorer, the game’s leading assist man, and they were leading Houston, one of their biggest rivals in the West, by 21. With one bad turn of Lonzo Ball’s left ankle, the Lakers stumbled into darkness once again in a spirit-crushing 138-134 overtime loss to the Rockets. Injuries have defined this season so far, and the Lakers took another bad one when Ball went down w...

Luke Walton compares James Harden’s season to Kobe Bryant’s career year

HOUSTON – Entering Saturday night, James Harden was in the midst of a run that has been rarely been seen in the NBA. Since dropping a 50-point triple-double against the Lakers in their last visit on Dec. 13, the reigning MVP has been averaging 42.2 points in his previous 18 games while averaging 9.1 assists and 7.6 rebounds. That stretch includes five triple doubles, and entering the Lakers game, he had scored at least 57 points in back-to-back contest. Luke Walton has seen that kind of dominanc...

Behind the scenes of DeMarcus Cousins' long-awaited return to the court

It was a show before the show as approximately 70-80 NBA professionals — front-office personnel, scouts, agents, photographers, videographers and writers — camped tightly along the sideline and baseline to watch DeMarcus Cousins warm up. When Cousins emerged from the locker room to take the court and saw the massive crowd awaiting his arrival, he shook his head. “That [expletive] was crazy,” Cousins told Yahoo Sports an hour before making his season debut Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers ...

Doc Rivers explains his mixed feelings on DeMarcus Cousins' NBA return

DeMarcus Cousins announces return with thunderous dunk, plus some 3-pointers, in Warriors debut

Welp, DeMarcus Cousins is back and the Golden State Warriors have reached their final form. For the first time since 1976, five reigning All-Stars took the floor wearing the same uniform on Friday, a sight the NBA has awaited — and feared — since it was reported that Cousins would spend this season in Golden State trying to re-establish his value after an Achilles tear and create one of the most star-studded lineups in NBA history in the process. Cousins predictably didn't see major minutes...

Warriors, DeMarcus Cousins visit Clippers for another newsworthy night

LOS ANGELES — For the second time this season, the Golden State Warriors will make news on the road against the Clippers. Back on Nov. 12, the headlines had less to do with the Clippers’ overtime victory over the two-time defending NBA champions than with strife between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green that started on their bench and then reportedly carried over into their locker room. On Friday evening, there will be drama of an entirely different order when basketball fans tune in to see how th...

The optics were just all off. UCLA in Pauley Pavilion, getting trampled by Liberty, the crowd showering the Bruins with boos.

UCLA announced the coaching change the following morning. The Bruins are j...

Yes, Steve Kerr -- Andre Iguodala is having a phenomenal season

During the 2012-13 regular season with Denver, Iguodala averaged 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while shooting 45.1 percent overall and 31.7 percent from deep. Because of this, Warriors fans assumed he was going to put up huge numbers on a nightly basis. The expectations were too high because the basic box score doesn't encapsulate Iguodala's true value.

Editor's note: Grant Liffmann and Drew Shiller are the co-hosts of Warriors Outsiders, which airs on NBC Sports Bay Area 90 minutes before each home game and 60 minutes after every game. The Warriors have won eight of their last nine games, and their offense is firing on all cylinders. It would be a massive understatement to say that Steph is shooting well right now.
