Warriors to start Curry in Game 3

Warriors to start Curry in Game 3”

As you already know by now, Stephen Curry returned from injury last night and lit up wit Pelicans as he didn't miss a beat after his long layoff and finished the game with 28 points (coming off the bench) leading the Warriors to a 2-0 series advantage. After Golden State took out the first game in Oakland by 22 points, the second was a little closer. The Warriors lead the all-time regular season series 34-20 and took the regular season series 3-1 though New Orleans won the last meeting 126-120 here on April 7. He's totaled just 46 points on 44 shots against Golden State. And if Game 2 was any indication, the New Orleans Pelicans are in for a rough Game 3. If you get one wrong, you're out, but if all eight are correct, you'll be in with a chance of a prize: a split of the pot of Under Armour store credit or a place in a daily raffle for goodies like tickets to see the Golden State Warriors.

At the time, Curry was, unsurprisingly, disappointed in that decision, but forcing him to wait three more days (and forcing in the right word there) has been a blessing for the Warriors and could prove to be the difference between Curry playing at a superstar level for the rest of the playoffs.

"Oh yeah, yeah, yeah", Kerr said. He knocked down a 30-foot 3-pointer and showed strong burst to the basket. Anthony Davis had four straight double-doubles, averaging 33.0 points on 21.3 shots per game.

The way I see it in this series, Kevin Durant is an unstoppable offensive force that the Pelicans just don't have an answer to defensively.

Playing his first game in more than five weeks since suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee, Curry came off the bench in Game 2 and scored 28 points in just 27 minutes.

Terry Rozier, filling in for the injured Kyrie Irving (Out for season), has played sensational averaging 19 points, nearly seven assists, 5 rebounds, on a sizzling 44 percent on 3-point shots.

Draymond Green and JaVale McGee will be big factors in this game.

The Pelicans did well to put up a fight in Game 2, and being back on their home court should be a plus.

The Pelicans are hoping they will be energized by a home crowd that helped them sweep through Games 3 and 4 of a first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. New Orleans is hitting 10.2 three pointers a game while shooting 37.7 percent from three point range in the playoffs.

Warriors star Curry set to play game two against Pelicans
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. New Orleans swept Portland in the first round, so the Pelicans got to watch the Warriors finish off the Spurs on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, New Orleans owns records of 52-36 SU and 50-37-1 ATS. New Orleans was only 7/9 in free throws while Golden State was 22/27. On top of his impressive shooting, he also accrued seven rebounds, two assists and three steals.
