Eric Gordon with the beautiful stepback 3, playing like he's a third "Splash Brother" tonight. Gordon 23 pts, 5/9 treys. GSW 85-82 at 5:34

Jason Calmes

Omer Asik was just saving his energy for the 4th, you guys!

Jason Calmes

More Harrison Barnes mid-range step-backs, plz

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis putting some of the highly-skilled moves in back pocket now, just putting it on floor and going to rim. Davis 24 pts, 6/6 FT

Jason Calmes

The problem with no Jrue & half healthy Evans is that too many other guys have to handle the ball too much. Like Eric Gordon, for example.

Jim Eichenhofer

Draymond Green made a big 3 after what's been a frigid shooting night (3/10 FGs). Livingston adds nifty dribble move. GSW 79-73 at 9:41

Jimmy Smith

Time out 9:41 4Q #Warriros 79, #Pelicans 73. Crowd's into it again.

Jason Calmes

What a sequence right there. So much fight in this Pelicans team.

John Reid

Pelicans held Warriors to 16 points in the third quarter.

Jason Calmes

Here we go. Tie game with one quarter to go. LET'S DO THIS PELS FANS.

Jim Eichenhofer

That 3Q was lot more like playoff basketball (#Pelicans 19, Warriors 16). NOLA only had 5 baskets but still forced tie at 71. Nothing easy

John Reid

Pelicans showed a lot of fight in that quarter to get back in game. Pelicans and Warriors tied at 71 heading into fourth.

Jim Eichenhofer

Warriors sub Leandro Barbosa having a flashback to his Suns prime tonight, making huge impact. Always been a nice reserve. GSW 70-69

John Reid

Pelicans regain lead 69-68 with 2:36 remaining on Anthony Davis hook shot.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans up by 1, 69-68 approaching 2 min 3Q.

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans has been extremely streaky at foul line this season (69.4% was career low). Tonight missed 3, made 3, now splitting. GSW 68-67

Jimmy Smith

That's PF4 on @Omer Asik with 5:12 3Q. He'll sit. Ajinca in.

John Reid

Pelicans make push to tie score at 64

Jimmy Smith

Game tied t 64, 5:50 to go 3Q.

Jason Calmes

Late whistle, but the correct call.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis with his first two free throws of game mid 3Q. Knocks down both and it's back to GSW 64-62. Now Tyreke to line for two more

Jason Calmes

To be fair - Asik is absolutely essential against 25+ NBA teams. Golden State is not one of them.

John Reid

Eric Gordon has 18 points, but Quincy Pondexter is 1-of-6 for 3 points. He scored 20 in Game 1.

Jason Calmes

Seen about enough of Omer. Not only is he a bad match-up against Golden State, but the effort isn't there either. I'd rather Ajinca.

Jim Eichenhofer

Eric Gordon with another big 3 pulls #Pelicans back within 64-60, after @Warriors were surging again. Gordon 18 pts, 4/6 treys

Jason Calmes

Just like the Pels drew it up! 18 points for Gordon now. Catch & shoot machine.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 9:48 3Q, #Warriors 61, #Pelicans 53; GS on 6-1 run to open third.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans @Omer Asik picks up PF3 with 11:44 to go 3Q.

Sean Kelley

Thompson and Curry combined for 14 of GSW's 38 2nd quarter points. GSW went 13-17fg and 4 three's in that blitz. Lead @New Orleans Pelicans 55-52

Jason Calmes

Rough Q2, but if you said you would have been upset before the game to know the #Pelicans would be down by just 3 at halftime, you're lying.

John Reid

Warriors fight back to regain lead at halftime 55-52 vs. Pelicans. Stephen Curry makes 3-pointer with 9.3 seconds remaining.

Jim Eichenhofer

Ryan Anderson upset because on play where Barnes got layup, Bogut appeared to be holding Ryan's arm. Barnes freeway to rim for easy two

Jason Calmes

Huge bucket for the Pels and for Ryno's confidence there.

Jim Eichenhofer

Andrew Bogut shot 52.4% from foul line during regular season, so he's a candidate to be hacked. Made 1 of 2 to tie it at 50 late 2Q

Jason Calmes

Hack a Bogut is fine when you have enough depth. Playing with fire using up fouls for major rotation guys in the 2nd quarter.

Jimmy Smith

Game tied at 50; #Pelicans were up 11 end 1Q.

Jimmy Smith

Pair of missed @Tyreke Evans FTs doesn't help cause.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans have been excellent so far but @Warriors keep coming in waves. Tyreke Evans nailed big 3 to quiet GSW momentarily. NOLA 50-47

John Reid

K. Thompson back to back 3s with Anthony Davis draped over him, ties score at 47.

Jason Calmes

Well here goes Klay. Tie game, 2 minutes left in the half.

Jimmy Smith

That 3 from @KlayThompson has ignited the Oracle crowd.

Jimmy Smith

That 3 from @KlayThompson has enlivened the Oracle crowd.

Jim Eichenhofer

When Eric Gordon caught pass in corner for 3, there was loud groan from @Warriors fans (he's been scorching). But EG surprisingly airballed

John Reid

Eric Gordon 5-of-7 for 13 points, Anthony Davis 7-of-12 for 14. Norris Cole has nine points off bench.

Jason Calmes

Anthony Davis has 14 points and has yet to get to the free throw line. Don't expect the latter trend to continue.

John Reid

Anthony Davis makes difficult twisting one-handed shot on the low block

Jason Calmes

Rare defensive breakdown for the Pels tonight. The fact that we can say that tonight is a minor victory.

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole was nation's 12th-leading scorer as senior at Cleveland St. He's shown much more explosive scoring ability w/#Pelicans than Heat

Jason Calmes

The #Pelicans' 11 points in the first 5:25 of the second quarter have all come courtesy of Norris Cole & Dante Cunningham.

John Reid

Norris Cole has scored all nine points in second quarter for Pelicans.

John Reid

Norris Cole is red-hot with nine points in eight minutes, hitting jump shots with ease.

Jim Eichenhofer

Norris Cole has accounted for all of #Pelicans 9 points in 2Q, with jumper, extended floater, trey, jumper. #sleeper NOLA 37-31

Jason Calmes

Nothing in the first 3 minutes of that second quarter should come as surprising. That lineup was destined for failure defensively.

John Reid

Warriors on 11-4 run at start of second quarter to cut Pelicans' lead to 32-28.

Jimmy Smith

Time out 9:04 2Q, #Pelicans 32, #Warriors 28; GS making a push.

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty mentioned that with matchups Ryan Anderson is getting on offense (smaller defenders), wants more drives to hoop instead of fadeaways

Jimmy Smith

Mareese Speights played less than 1 minute in Game 1; he's 2/2 in 2 minutes so far tonight.

Jason Calmes

This Pelicans lineup will hemorrhage points. Need to score to keep up.

John Reid

Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon combined to score 21 of the Pelicans' 28 points in first quarter.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis 12/19 FGs, 6/6 FTs in his last 2 quarters going back to 4Q of Game 1, for total of 30 points. Not a bad "half"

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans like sharks circling on defense for most of 1Q. Forced 6 turnovers, got bunch more deflections. Gordon/Davis 21 of NOLA 28-17 lead

John Reid

Pelicans leading Warriors 28-17 at end of first quarter, forced six turnovers and held Warriors to 31.8 percent shooting.

John Reid

Draymond Green went to the lane and was met by three Pelicans defenders.

John Reid

Pelicans leading 26-15, limiting Warriors to 31.6 percent shooting right now (6 of 19).

John Reid

Anthony Davis has made 5-of-8 shots for 10 points in 11 minutes.

Jason Calmes

What an amazing possession. No quit in this team.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans making Warriors take lot of tough shots in halfcourt, just need to stop the run-outs. Much better job communicating than Game 1

John Reid

Pelicans playing tonight like they did against Spurs in the regular season finale - keeping their foot on the pedal and defending tough.

Jason Calmes

Bogut can post up Anderson all night if he wants to.

Jason Calmes

Warriors are missing threes, but they're not the easiest of looks, open or not. Pelican defenders recovering well. Oh, also - 3RIC GORDON

Jim Eichenhofer

Eric Gordon has started first playoff series of his @NBA career red-hot from three-point range. Now 7-for-10 (3-for-3 tonight). NOLA 17-15

John Reid

Eric Gordon has 11 points in eight minutes. He's made all three 3-pointers.

John Reid

Andrew Bogut beat Omer Asik to basket for dunk - Warriors' first points scored in the paint.

Jim Eichenhofer

Nine of @Warriors first 13 points came on fast breaks. Curry hit a trey off a botched 2-on-1 by NOLA, then another trey after AD missed dunk

Jason Calmes

Pelicans absolutely have to finish in transition to have a chance of winning this game.

John Reid

Eric Gordon got his shooting rhythm tonight - 3-of-4 shots for eight points.

John Reid

Warriors scored 50 points in the paint in Game 1 vs. Pelicans.

Jason Calmes

Would love to see Anderson come in out of this timeout. Play Asik again when Bogut exits.

John Reid

Warriors have 10 points, but none were scored in the paint.

Jim Eichenhofer

#Pelicans getting lot of what they want on offense in first 4:25. Big momentum play: NOLA fast-break turnover leads to GS trey. Up 11-10

John Reid

Pelicans jumped out to 11-4 lead before back-to-back threes by Draymond Green and Stephen Curry.

Jason Calmes

Apart from whenever Asik has touched the ball, this has been a really fun game so far.

Jason Calmes

Turnovers = Warriors in transition = buckets

Jason Calmes

Pelicans forcing a bunch of mediocre looks for the Warriors until that Green 3. Solid defense to start for the most part.
