It's hard to imagine Golden State's offense looking much better than it did in Game 1, but the Warriors' offensive rating was 14.9 points better with Curry on the floor during the regular season. We'll have to wait and see what shakes out, but what we do know is that barring any kind of insane setback, Curry will be in the game on Tuesday. Kerr said Curry wasn't ready - he had scrimmaged only once since he injured his knee. "Obviously, it's a completely different series".
After two weeks and several extended series, the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs is behind us. That's a sight the Pelicans grew all too familiar with Saturday.
Kerr declined to say whether Curry will get his groove back as a starter or coming off the bench when he returns.
Golden State had its highest scoring postseason first half as well as second quarter. "There's a pecking order as far as what we want to give up, what we live with".
Whether it's a team meal or maybe a trip to the movies, Anthony Davis expected that New Orleans Pelicans players will do some type of group outing Monday evening in the Bay Area.
Rajon Rondo had nine points and dished out 11 assists for New Orleans. Golden State has an opportunity to take a commanding series lead Tuesday night.
"I'd be very surprised if he didn't play (Tuesday), but you've got to (use) caution. It was more so free-throw line and dunks that are deflating for our defensive coverages".
Warriors guard Stephen Curry will make his postseason debut tonight for Game 2 against the Pelicans. Succeeding schedules for Games 5 to 7 will follow pending the results of the upcoming games. They laid the foundation for success in Game 1, even relying on a seldom-used reserve in an all-hands-on-deck mission to stop the Pelicans greatest threat. "He's another dynamic scorer, he can score in many ways". Still, Davis can punish smaller defenders both with the ball and away from it, and they'll be forced into predicaments like the one Andre Iguodala was in here when he surrendered an alley oop dunk to Davis.
Curry returned for Game 4 of the Warriors' five-game Western Conference semifinals against Portland two years ago and made 16 of 32 shots with five 3-pointers and scored 17 points in overtime on the way to 40 in a 132-125 victory.
