Golden State Of Mind: Warriors re-assign Jacob Evans III to the G League
Once again, the Golden State Warriors have assigned rookie Jacob Evans III to the G League. Evans, the 28th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, will join the Santa Cruz Warriors, a team he's quite familiar with.
Evans has been bouncing between Oakland and Santa Cruz all year long. Lately he's been playing in the NBA a little bit more than usual, as he's appeared in two of the last four games for Golden State. However, he's played just 3 minutes and 20 seconds combined in those two games.
The rookie has been getting good developmental time in Santa Cruz, where he's played 20 games.
CSN Bay Area: Steve Kerr jokes about wanting to trade spots with Andre Iguodala
Steve Kerr has accomplished a lot during his playing and coaching career.
He played four seasons for Lute Olson at Arizona. He spent 15 years playing in the NBA, and won five NBA titles during that time.
As a coach, Kerr has made the NBA Finals in each of his first four seasons with the Warriors, and has won three championships.
If you're Steve Kerr, there aren't many people you'd want to trade places with.
Except, there is one Warriors player Kerr would like to be.
"I definitely would trade spots with Andre [Iguodala]," Kerr said on Friday on 95.
Golden State Of Mind: Preview: Warriors won't have Curry, Livingston against Doncic's Mavs
WHEN: Saturday, March 23rd; 5:30 p.m.
WHERE: American Airlines Center -- Dallas, TX
LISTEN: 95.7 The Game
The Golden State Warriors are in a two-way race for the #1 seed with the Denver Nuggets, with the tantalizing prize of home court advantage going to the victor. That's one reason the champs upcoming game against the Dallas Mavericks is must see TV.
Another reason this game is crucial is because Luka Doncic is putting the finishing touches on a likely rookie of the year campaign (apologies to the Hawks' Trae Young).
CSN Bay Area: Warriors' Chase Center debut brings LeBron James, Lakers to San Francisco

Official Site of the Warriors: Warriors Announce First Preseason Game at Chase Center
The back-to-back NBA Champion Golden State Warriors and Chase Center, the Warriors' new 18,064-seat privately-financed sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco's Mission Bay neighborhood, announced today that the Warriors will host the Los Angeles Lakers at Chase Center on Saturday, October 5, tipping off at 5:30 p.m. in the first-ever game at Chase Center. The game will mark the first professional basketball game in the city of San Francisco since January 29, 1971, when the Warriors defeated the Buffalo Braves, 106-100, at the San Francisco Civic Auditorium.
Upon moving to the Bay Area prior to the 1962-63 season, the Warriors played the majority of their home games at the Civic Auditorium in San Francisco from 1962-71, in addition to select games at the USF Memorial Gym and at the Cow Palace in Daly City.
San Jose Mercury News: Bryce Harper explains why he chose Phillies over Giants
Bryce Harper said he wanted to sign with the Giants last month, but unlike Tony Bennett his heart just wasn't in San Francisco.
It belonged to Philadelphia.
Harper told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal he loved pretty much everything about the Giants and he would have been happy to play here. But he needed to follow his heart.
(Here's where the cynical Giants supporters point out he also followed the money).
Even though the Giants' final offer of 12 years, $310 million was less than the 13-year, $330 million deal he accepted from the Phillies, Harper indicated it wouldn't have mattered what San Francisco offered.

Fansided: Golden State Warriors: Klay Thompson in the midst of another hot streak
Klay Thompson is a premier shooting guard in the NBA. His consistent shooting for the Golden State Warriors has helped turn him into a borderline superstar. Recently, Thompson has been on fire and it is having a big impact on the Dubs.
Thompson is no stranger to hot streaks. The other member of the splash brothers is always a threat to heat up. At any moment, Klay can snap and go off for a 30+ point game. This makes him one of the league's best heat check players.
In the 2015-16 season, Thompson had his best heat check moment in which he scored 37 points in a single quarter against the Sacramento Kings.
Golden State Of Mind: The Golden Breakdown: How the Warriors' vintage third quarter destroyed the Pacers
Based on pure statistical evidence, the Golden State Warriors aren't the best third quarter team in the league during this season.
With a plus/minus of +219 in third quarters this season, the Warriors are ranked second behind the +221 of the Toronto Raptors, per NBA.com/stats. While being a close second in that category is nothing to scoff at, it seemed not too long ago that the Warriors made the third quarter their uncontested dominion.
Prior to this season, the Warriors consistently led the league in plus/minus during third quarters, starting from the 2014-15 season, where their +287 topped the league.
San Jose Mercury News: Kurtenbach: Three thoughts on the Warriors' comprehensive win over the Pacers
The Warriors beat the Pacers 112-89 Thursday at Oracle Arena.
Here are three thoughts on the contest:Three kinds of smoke
The score might not indicate it, but Thursday's game might have been the Warriors' best offensive game of the season.
The ball was moving, players were moving, and for the first time, it felt like the team's three kinds of smoke were all working in concert.
San Jose Mercury News: Warriors' reaction to Andrew Bogut's standing ovation

OAKLAND - Well before he even stepped on the court, Andrew Bogut received the loudest ovation of the night.
The reason: the Warriors played a tribute video capturing Bogut's previous four-year stop (2012-2016) that coincided with the team's first NBA title in 40 years (2015) and a record-setting regular-season (2015-16).
It only seemed fitting the Warriors would play that before their 112-89 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday at Oracle Arena.
San Jose Mercury News: Warriors 112; Pacers 89: Inside Warriors' third-quarter push
OAKLAND -- The Warriors did not succumb to the league-old adage that the most challenging task entails playing a home game following a long trip.
The Warriors finished with a 112-89 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday at Oracle Arena, marking the team's fourth win in the past five games. The reason: the Warriors broke the game open in the third quarter. They outscored the Pacers, 35-19, while shooting 14-of-24 from the field and 6-of-11 from 3. The Warriors also held the Pacers to a 7-of-18 clip, while forcing six turnovers.
The Warriors (49-22) have a half-game lead over the Denver Nuggets (48-22) for the Western Conference's best record.
