Warriors 136, Lakers 115: Steve Kerr on Marreese Speights: ‘He’s earned that backup role’

LOS ANGELES – Warriors big man Marreese Speights is no longer out of shape and on the end of the bench like he was last season.

Warriors 107, Nets 99: Draymond Green shooting with confidence after having put in the work

OAKLAND – Draymond Green chuckled at the mention of him being one of the Splash Brothers.

But that 3-point shot that has been going down, the same one that wasn’t dropping much at all as a rookie.

Green was 3 for 8 from 3-point range, giving him 15 made shots from beyond the arc this season. He made 14 3-pointer his entire rookie season two years ago when he shot only 21 percent from long distance.

Why the confidence?

Over 53 minutes over the past two games, Iguodala combined to score three points, grab five rebounds and dish out two assists. He finally broke out of his field goal drought with his first field goal in the span of eight quarters in the fourth against the Spurs.

Source: Warriors working with guard Nemanja Nedovic on a parting of ways

OAKLAND – The Warriors could soon part ways with Nemanja Nedovic, as according a source close to the situation, the team is working with its 2013 first-round pick to facilitate a change of scenery.

The Warriors could recover some of his $1.1 million salary owed to Nedovic this season if they buy him out of the contract and the native of Serbia lands with one of the European teams reportedly interested in him.
