The old adage says a series doesn't truly begin until someone loses a game at home.
"We know they're going to come out and play extremely hard, "Kevin Durant said of the Pelicans' approach to Game 3". Curry will probably rejoin the starting lineup tonight and his minutes could potentially go up.
I loved the pace of play in Game 2.
The Warriors rank first in assists per game (29.3) while the Pelicans rank 21st in assists allowed per game (23.8). Embiid or "The Process" as he's known, averaged 22 points, 11 rebounds, three assist and two blocks, in route to his first All Star bid. "We were in it the whole game".
Curry being back also makes things exponentially harder for any team in the National Basketball Association to win four of seven games in a series due to the sheer talent of Curry, Durant, Green and Thompson.
Golden State sharp-shooter Steph Curry, eyes closed, is in the corner of the Smoothie King Center, launching a shot over Davis, the best shot blocker in the league, and former Pelican guard Tyreke Evans. He let it fly for a 30-foot 3 in the closing minute of the third. This series alone, New Orleans has upped their pace of play by three possessions. On Saturday, the Warriors defeated the Pelicans in Game 1 of the semifinals, with a score of 123-101.
The Thunder Are Reportedly Hoping to Get Rid of Carmelo Anthony
Oklahoma City's general manager Sam Presti said Wednesday that Donovan will be back next year despite a "disappointing" season.
Just the energy Curry brings helped that cause.
"Oh yeah, yeah, yeah", Kerr said to the San Francisco-based station during his weekly appearance. Curry was out for an MCL injury but will nearly certainly return for Game 2 on Tuesday. The basket was his first attempt after returning from an injury.
Anthony Davis and the Pelicans return home in Game 3 of their Western Conference Semi-Finals down 0-2. He grabbed nine rebounds and dished out eight assists.
There were two monster shots Curry hit to keep the Warriors afloat. That came 14 seconds after a double-technical against Davis and Green after they got tangled and rolled around and over each other. "They said I didn't get fouled, so maybe I have to go in there a little stronger and force them to call them". VanVleet missed what would have been a go-ahead 3-pointer in the waning moments of regulation and another in the extra frame.
Remember, Curry wanted to play in Game 1 of this series, but his request was shot down by Kerr, Warriors trainer Chelsea Lane, and, well, the organization as a whole. Just apply the formula for that series to the Warriors' current series against the Pelicans - it's pretty much the same. Furthermore, in the entire first-round matchup of seven games, the Pacers outscored the Cavs by 40 points, even though the latter ended up moving on to the semifinals. Golden State did get one of their biggest weapons back as Stephen Curry returned to the rotation after missing time with a knee injury. This young group mostly cruised over the final three games last series against Miami.
Golden State Warriors vs. "We just get along and have fun playing the game".
