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
Omer Asik was just saving his energy for the 4th, you guys!
More Harrison Barnes mid-range step-backs, plz
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
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.
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
What a sequence right there. So much fight in this Pelicans team.
Pelicans held Warriors to 16 points in the third quarter.
Here we go. Tie game with one quarter to go. LET'S DO THIS PELS FANS.
Pelicans showed a lot of fight in that quarter to get back in game. Pelicans and Warriors tied at 71 heading into fourth.
Warriors sub Leandro Barbosa having a flashback to his Suns prime tonight, making huge impact. Always been a nice reserve. GSW 70-69
Pelicans regain lead 69-68 with 2:36 remaining on Anthony Davis hook shot.
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
Pelicans make push to tie score at 64
Game tied t 64, 5:50 to go 3Q.
Late whistle, but the correct call.
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
To be fair - Asik is absolutely essential against 25+ NBA teams. Golden State is not one of them.
Eric Gordon has 18 points, but Quincy Pondexter is 1-of-6 for 3 points. He scored 20 in Game 1.
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.
Just like the Pels drew it up! 18 points for Gordon now. Catch & shoot machine.
Omer Asik sighting!
Warriors fight back to regain lead at halftime 55-52 vs. Pelicans. Stephen Curry makes 3-pointer with 9.3 seconds remaining.
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
2-for-1, at least?
Huge bucket for the Pels and for Ryno's confidence there.
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
Hack a Bogut is fine when you have enough depth. Playing with fire using up fouls for major rotation guys in the 2nd quarter.
K. Thompson back to back 3s with Anthony Davis draped over him, ties score at 47.
Well here goes Klay. Tie game, 2 minutes left in the half.
When Eric Gordon caught pass in corner for 3, there was loud groan from @Warriors fans (he's been scorching). But EG surprisingly airballed
Eric Gordon 5-of-7 for 13 points, Anthony Davis 7-of-12 for 14. Norris Cole has nine points off bench.
Anthony Davis has 14 points and has yet to get to the free throw line. Don't expect the latter trend to continue.
Anthony Davis makes difficult twisting one-handed shot on the low block
Rare defensive breakdown for the Pels tonight. The fact that we can say that tonight is a minor victory.
Norris Cole has scored all nine points in second quarter for Pelicans.
Norris Cole is red-hot with nine points in eight minutes, hitting jump shots with ease.
Goodness, Norris Cole.
Nothing in the first 3 minutes of that second quarter should come as surprising. That lineup was destined for failure defensively.
Warriors on 11-4 run at start of second quarter to cut Pelicans' lead to 32-28.
Monty mentioned that with matchups Ryan Anderson is getting on offense (smaller defenders), wants more drives to hoop instead of fadeaways
Mareese Speights played less than 1 minute in Game 1; he's 2/2 in 2 minutes so far tonight.
This Pelicans lineup will hemorrhage points. Need to score to keep up.
Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon combined to score 21 of the Pelicans' 28 points in first quarter.
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"
Pelicans leading Warriors 28-17 at end of first quarter, forced six turnovers and held Warriors to 31.8 percent shooting.
Draymond Green went to the lane and was met by three Pelicans defenders.
Pelicans leading 26-15, limiting Warriors to 31.6 percent shooting right now (6 of 19).
Anthony Davis has made 5-of-8 shots for 10 points in 11 minutes.
What an amazing possession. No quit in this team.
Pelicans playing tonight like they did against Spurs in the regular season finale - keeping their foot on the pedal and defending tough.
Bogut can post up Anderson all night if he wants to.
Warriors are missing threes, but they're not the easiest of looks, open or not. Pelican defenders recovering well. Oh, also - 3RIC GORDON
Eric Gordon has 11 points in eight minutes. He's made all three 3-pointers.
Andrew Bogut beat Omer Asik to basket for dunk - Warriors' first points scored in the paint.
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
Pelicans absolutely have to finish in transition to have a chance of winning this game.
Eric Gordon got his shooting rhythm tonight - 3-of-4 shots for eight points.
Warriors scored 50 points in the paint in Game 1 vs. Pelicans.
Would love to see Anderson come in out of this timeout. Play Asik again when Bogut exits.
Warriors have 10 points, but none were scored in the paint.
Pelicans jumped out to 11-4 lead before back-to-back threes by Draymond Green and Stephen Curry.
Apart from whenever Asik has touched the ball, this has been a really fun game so far.
Turnovers = Warriors in transition = buckets
Pelicans forcing a bunch of mediocre looks for the Warriors until that Green 3. Solid defense to start for the most part.
