Klay Thompson drains four threes in Warriors' Game 1 win

The Golden State Warriors had little trouble without Stephen Curry against the San Antonio Spurs in their first round matchup, but that if they're going to be equally successful against the red-hot New Orleans Pelicans they will likely need their fearless leader. Combination of offense and defense, I think we had one turnover in the whole quarter and ten assists and the ball was moving and it all started with our defense, and Draymond is always in the center of our defensive effort. Jrue Holiday was held to 4-for-14 shooting and 11 points.

Curry has been dealing with an MCL sprain in his left knee and has not played since March 23.

There was still no date for Game 2 of the best-of-seven series, though Curry was hoping if he couldn't play Saturday that the game would be at least Tuesday — not Monday — to give him a better chance.

"We've adjusted to life without him". You know, what we've got to do is, we've got to get AD [Anthony Davis] more involved in the game from the standpoint of even the double-teams, we've got to get him out on the floor and get space, and we've got to do a better job of shot selection.

The Golden State Warriors look locked in right now.

Welcome to the second round of the NBA Playoffs New Orleans Pelicans fans.

The latest example came in the 121-103 Game 1 drubbing of the New Orleans Pelicans, holding their opponent to just 43 percent from the field.

"You have to be very disciplined against this team", said Gentry.

Kerr added, "That was probably the loudest I've heard the Oracle all year". The Warriors had no problem scoring points in the regular season against the Pelicans, averaging 120.7 points in four games, and they also shot over 50% in three of the regular season meetings. The weeklong layoff hurt, Gentry said.

The Warriors were never in danger Saturday, ultimately winning Game 1 by a score of 123-101.

With Golden State missing one of their biggest stars, it was supposed to be the game that the Pelicans could steal on the road to start the series.

"The bottom line is he nearly had a triple-double by halftime". They are better shooters and more focused defensively too.

The defending champions made light work of a Pelicans team that impressively swept the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round and were on fire from the jump.

But there was a second half to play. Assists-New Orleans 24 (Rondo 11), Golden State 33 (Green 11).

As usual, Curry insisted he "feels great and he's ready to go, " said Kerr, who is encouraged Curry feels so good.

"We just made that decision based on giving him the extra few days, and the fact that he only scrimmaged yesterday". "When you've been out five weeks and we're playing in the playoffs, I don't think one scrimmage is enough, even though he feels great and he wants to play and he pleaded his case".

"If it were up to me, I would have played for about 20 minutes", Curry told the network. The series is set to resume with Game 2 scheduled for 7:30 pm Tuesday night at Oracle.

Said guard Klay Thompson: "It's very contagious".

Green finished with his fourth career postseason triple double.

I also can't remember the last time that an officiating crew completely eliminated a star player in the playoffs with awful call after bad call.

Head to head, the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Golden State and the over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings overall.
