Warriors star Curry set to play game two against Pelicans”

New Orleans swept Portland in the first round, so the Pelicans got to watch the Warriors finish off the Spurs on Tuesday night. New Orleans has a razor thin margin for error in this series, and they can not afford to scuttle through Game 1 fighting off rust form the extended time off.

Golden State, for the most part, has struggled in his absence. "You can't make it up as you go along, because they're going to take advantage of you".

Bellator 198: Fedor Vs. Mir Complete Highlights
The bout between two sporting greats was to mark the first time in over fifteen years that Fedor has been marked as an underdog. Sonnen spent most of his career as a middleweight, before moving to light heavyweight in recent years.

Unfortunately, in the second quarter they weren't able to hang around. If he looks anything like the mutant we saw against Portland then Golden State is going to have a real hard time beating the Pelicans, especially without a fully healthy Steph Curry. Technically underdogs, #new orleans came into the playoffs on a hot streak, winning their last five games. Those were almost all converted into buckets or free throw attempts at the other end. They kicked things into high gear around the midway point of the second quarter.

The most important matchup in this series will be down low, as Golden State's primary focus needs to be on making sure that Anthony Davis has as little open space as possible. Holiday struggled all night to find an offensive rhythm, shooting just 4-for-14 from the field.

And the Blues have a FA Cup final date with rivals Manchester United at Wembley Stadium (May 19) to look forward to as well. Cahill, who succeeded John Terry as club captain, has endured a troubled season.

The Pelicans allowed the game to slip away in the first half as Golden State went on an epic 37-9 run that ended with back-to-back 3-pointers that sent the fans into an uproar. The Warriors had enough firepower to knock off the creaky Spurs, who were offensively challenged all season without their superstar Kawhi Leonard. The Warriors' chase of a fourth straight NBA Finals appearance gets a stiffer test beginning here.

He was joined by Durant who finished with 26 points while pulling in 13 rebounds. Question is, how much will they push the defending champs? Kevin Durant led the Warriors with 25 points in the win while Klay Thompson chipped in 24 points. Green (5-for-8) couldn't contain his All-NBA counterpart. Kevon Looney stepped into the rotation for Jordan Bell and contributed eight points and three boards in 23 minutes. By comparison, the Pelicans led the league in pace during the regular season at 102.73 possessions per 48 minutes. While some of that can be chalked up to bad bounces or San Antonio's defense, the fact of the matter is the shots didn't go down. From there it was a brisk walk down the Green Mile for New Orleans on its way to a 123-101 opening game loss. "It's one game. They win by 40, they win by one, they win by 90, it's one game". The Pelicans were dominant in the series, coming up with an answer every time the Trail Blazers would make a run while neutralizing Damian Lillard.

Davis, who registered 21 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks in a losing effort, said his team hasn't lost hope. "But we're going to sit him tonight and very likely he'll play Game 2". That will be another dynamic for the Pelicans to contend with on the defensive end. "Very likely, he'll play Game 2".
