Friday Night Playoffs: Warriors @ Pelicans

Adjust Comment Print

There are reasons for Golden State to be optimistic, despite Friday's setback. "Of course we didn't want to go down 0-3 but we got our big one tonight and now we'll try to get ready for Sunday". "You've seen me get into it with people before". When someone is the greatest at something in National Basketball Association history, generally it is a massive asset not only to himself but also to his team and for Curry, his shooting is no different. Imagine playing flawless transition defense only for a player to pull up from basically the logo, make the shot and completely eliminate the positive feelings of the work of that defense. Curry will probably rejoin the starting lineup tonight and his minutes could potentially go up.

Although Klay Thompson scored 26 points for the Warriors, they were uncharacteristically poor with their shooting after missing 22 of 31 three-point attempts. So, by just being on the floor he acts as a playmaker for his teammates without even touching the ball. Davis is going to have to carry the team on his back but playing at home, that should work in the Pelicans' favor.

After dropping the first two games in Oakland, the Pelicans had their backs against the wall, and they responded.

While Curry, Green and Durant looked a bit ticked that the series was at least going to be a little harder than they expected, the two-time MVP said the defending champs are still in a prime spot.

Steph Curry's debut in the 2018 NBA Playoffs following a medial collateral ligament injury may be a nightmare for NBA teams, but it could be a dream for a select few NBA fans.

It has happened in past "clasicos", but Madrid will not do it this time. And so Zidane's team will be even more determined to ruin the party.


Rondo notably had an altercation with Green early on in the game during a timeout as the duo had to be separated by the referees.

Curry made a bounce pass in transition to Iguodala late in the third and Solomon Hill was hit with a flagrant 1 for grabbing Iguodala's neck area as he shot. Shooting guard Jrue Holiday contributed 24 points, eight boards, eight assists, one steal and one block. Lastly, he is a great swinger of the ball thanks to his unselfishness.

One of the most promising parts of a disappointing loss on Tuesday for the Pelicans was the notable way the controled the pace of play through most of the game.

Every time Stephen Curry steps on the floor, the Warriors instantly have their culture back. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings.

Sometime in the summer, presumably after the Warriors finish their playoff run, Curry is slated to film another series focused on giving his opinion on many facets of Silicon Valley. "Nobody on our team would like him". All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube.
