Stephen Curry: Out for Game 1


No one could have anyone guessed he would notch just 21 points on 20 attempts in 33 minutes.

It was nearly as if it was scripted, this too-good-to-be true setting in which the legendary rapper sat with fellow music mogul and wife Beyonce watching the basketball embodiment of one of his most famous lines, courtesy of the defending champion Golden State Warriors. Jrue Holiday struggled in game one, going 4 for 14 from the field for only 11 points.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Kevin Durant and Draymond Green ignited a brilliant second quarter with their defense and all-out hustle plays, then Golden State got rolling in transition and Oracle Arena started rocking the way it does this time of year. They will need a complete team effort to have a chance in game two. Kerr rekindled his team's explosive identity by meeting fire with fire, downsizing his starting lineup by playing Green at center to match up with the Pelicans, who have thrived since the All-Star break by playing small lineups around Anthony Davis.

The Warriors were never in danger Saturday, ultimately winning Game 1 by a score of 123-101. They outscored the Pelicans 27-19 and lead 103-74 after three quarters. Thompson lit up the Spurs for 22.6 points and a silly 63.3 true-shooting percentage in the first round. New Orleans surrendered 110 or more points in the last 11 regular-season games against Golden State.

Kerr knows the importance of having his most important player as healthy as possible going into the conference finals and possibly the finals.

With two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry watching from the bench, the Warriors outscored the Pelicans 41-18 in one of the most lopsided quarters you'll see. Their rebounding has been sharp as they have out-rebounded their opponents in five of their six playoff games, and overall this team is looking unstoppable. Durant is a stone-cold killer offensively, while Davis, who averaged 1.5 steals and 2.6 blocks during the season, is one of the most versatile defenders in the league, so whenever those two are on each other, it will deserve all of your attention. They conceded an average of 107.5 points in regular season action, placing them 18th in the National Basketball Association.

Golden State may have a lot more competition than they have had in recent years, but it is still hard to bet against them, especially with a healthy Curry. Yes, pre-tip off that was probably the Pelicans best "shot" to win a road game in this series.

But they fell apart fast Saturday night.

Draymond Green registered a triple double in a mere 24 minutes, marking the fourth time he's logged a triple double in the playoffs.

"The priority for us is to be the best team we can be", he said. The Warriors allowed 60 percent shooting but led the Pelicans 35-34 entering the second quarter. Golden State, carried by Klay Thompson's 13 second-quarter points (including three three-pointers) and Green's all-around play (eight points, five assists, four rebounds in the second quarter), was on its way.

It sounds like Steph will return in Game against the Pelicans.
