Golden State Warriors VIDEOS

Equally devastating from long range and on drives to the hoop, Curry scored 39 points, and the Golden State Warriors took a 109-98 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night, completing a sweep of their first-round playoff series. "I knew he was crafty, I mean, a great shooter," Davis said of Curry, who averaged 33.8 points in the series. "There's nothing you can do. You try to pressure him and run him off the (3-point) line and he'll hit incredible shots in the lane. You back off so he won't drive, he's going to hit a 3. So you've got to pick your poison and he's a tough player to guard. That's why he's (a candidate) for MVP." USA Today Sports

Curry added that the key to the Warriors' first-round success was confidence. Golden State completed its sweep with a 109-98 victory over the Pelicans in Game 4. "Tonight was a little bit different because you had the pressure to close out the series," Curry told Yahoo Sports. "We had a huge 3-0 lead and you want to make it as easy on yourselves as possible. As long as defense travels every night we will be fine. I think that showed tonight." Yahoo! Sports

Warriors forward David Lee served as a spectator during the first-round series against the Pelicans, but he is ready to play after recovering from a lower back strain. In a potential Western Conference semifinal series against Memphis, which leads its first-round series against Portland 3-0, Lee could very well see action. Draymond Green picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter of each of the Warriors' past two wins against Memphis and was replaced by Lee, who ended up playing double-digit minutes in both games. "It's a team that plays big and that we're going to need every big on the roster ready to go, myself included," Lee said of Memphis. San Jose Mercury-News
