Stephen Curry: "AD changed the game in the 4th quarter. We're going to have to deal with that all series. That's why it's going to be tough"
Jrue Holiday on 2H rally: "I think as a team, we came together, when we got hit and were down (trailing). That was big for us as a team."
Stephen Curry on Anthony Davis starting slow in playoff debut: "Everyone goes through that in the first game, some nerves, jitters."
Steve Kerr on Anthony Davis (35 pts, 20 in 4Q: "He's a great player. He obviously is a lot to deal with."
Monty on Tyreke being injured and Jrue being limited, “We’ve dealt with this all season.” Ain’t that the truth.
Pelicans make a valiant attempt late, but Warriors hold on to win 106-99. Game 2 on Moday. Monty has a lot to think about moving forward.
Anthony Davis 4th-quarter breakdown (20 pts) so far: two jumpers, two dunks, a layup, a tip-in, a floater, 6-6 free throws. GSW ball. 103-99
Another time out.
Asik is not bad in a vacuum. He is a bad matchup in THIS series.
If you haven't seen Anthony Davis play this season... yes, he does this all the time. What a fourth quarter offensive clinic
People saying, “THIS is how AD needs to play all game!” He can’t when Asik is on the floor. That’s Monty’s Dilemma.
Anthony Davis has 14 pts in 4Q, now up to 29 in game. But big hoop by Draymond Green gives Warriors 101-91 lead at 1:40
Pels -18 with Asik on the floor. +10 without him now. Monty is going to have to do some thinking tonight.
Pels going with the Hack-A-Iggy. Monty open to anything apparently. Iggy goes 1-2. Dubs up 11.
There is just so much more space with Anderson on the court. Asik on the floor just leads to multiple Pels bricking contested jumpers.
Anthony Davis dunk count 5 after a soaring one-handed alley oop slam. Vies with a couple Warriors in paint to draw foul, makes FTs. 97-87
Mark Jackson saying Ryno Anderson starting next to Anthony Davis gives the Pels the best chance in this series. Couldn’t agree more.
Eric Gordon loves those open three-pointers in 4Q. Gordon makes it 93-83, but Klay Thompson hits two free throws. 95-83 at 3:12
Pels run a beautiful 3 man play with Gordon/Ryno/AD, leads to a wide open Gordon three. More of that moving forward please.
Imagine if Blake or Aldridge had Klay covering them. You think they would clear out to the other side of the court?
Have seen Klay get switched on to AD several times and Davis just clears out. What??
A lot of negatives today, but the Pelicans free throw defense has been pretty good.
Curry comes back in, Warriors get lead back up to 17. Golden State now +30 with him on and -13 with him off.
Warriors still in control, leading 90-73 with 8:12 remaining in game. Stephen Curry has 30.
Numbers say that AT BEST Anthony Davis is gonna shoot the same from mid-range as Curry is gonna shoot from three. Not a winning formula.
Did Omer Asik loan Anthony Davis his hands for the day? What is going on here?
So for those asking, “How can we beat the Warriors?” Um, anybody every see Celtic Pride?
Steph Curry has been off the court for 7 minutes and the Warriors are -13 in that time.
Just like in the second quarter, Pels make a run against Warriors 2nd unit. Pelicans within 11 with 10+ left to play.
Quincy Pondexter 18 pts, approaching his NBA playoff career high of 22 set in the 2013 West finals between Grizz and Spurs
Quincy Pondexter's 40-foot shot at the end of 3Q is the Pelicans only highlight so far.
Pelicans trailing Warriors 84-66 at end of third quarter.
Pretty exciting 5-0 run to close 3Q. AD with ridiculous one-handed dunk few 6-10 men would even attempt. Quincy with quick-draw 40-footer
If the Timberwolves game into New Orleans for Game 1 of a 7-game series, I would fully expect the Pelicans to be up 20 too.
The point differential difference was about the same between the Warriors and the Pels as it was between the Pels and the T’Wolves
Quincy Pondexter has now matched Anthony Davis for a team-high 13 points.
Jrue Holiday has played 13 minutes and remains scoreless.
Warriors built a 20 point lead with Curry struggling from deep. Now, he’s warming up.
Midway through the 3rd, the Warriors lead by 23. It doesn’t even feel that close.
So envious of how much the Warriors players help each other on D. They are incredibly active on that end.
Tyreke Evans will not return.
Pelicans shooting at 39 percent.
Tyreke Evans now ruled OUT for remainder of the game
Quincy Pondexter' second Pelicans' player in double figures. He has 10.
Norris Cole starts third quarter in place of Tyreke Evans.
Norris Cole starts 2H in place of Tyreke Evans (left knee bruise). Probably could've been Jrue here but watching the minutes (10 so far)
Pelicans shot 61 percent in the second quarter.
Four Warriors' starters scored in double figures in the first half. Anthony Davis' was the Pelicans only double-figure scorer with 11
If the saying that “You learn more from your failures than your successes” is true, then the Pelicans are going to learn a TON this series
Pelicans say Tyreke Evans is probable to return for second half. He left game in 2Q with knee bruise.
PSA to those at the watch party: If you have an empty pitcher please take it to the bar.
The Warriors scored 36 of their 59 points in the paint during the first half.
Refs waive off Barbosa's basket at the buzzer. Was still in his hands barely at 0:00. GSW big surge end of 2Q, up 59-41
