Curry expects to rejoin Warriors lineup in Game 2

#[Live-Tv]New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors Live Stream

The Pelicans earned their first playoff win in general and their first series win in the Anthony Davis era: they'll look to build off that here.

Draymond Green collected his fourth career post-season triple-double (16 points, 15 rebounds, 11 assists), passing Tom Gola for most playoff triple-doubles in Warriors history.

But Kerr is looking to take a cautious approach with the three-point sharpshooter and admits he could place him on a minutes restriction and possibly have him come off the bench.

"Klay looked at me on the bench and said, 'Man, Draymond, I got more exhausted tonight than I did in any game against the Spurs, '" Green said with a laugh. Golden State also started guards Andre Iguodala and Nick Young with Durant and Klay Thompson, producing a five-man group that could switch everything and deploy size and length on New Orleans' guards, who had played extremely well against Portland.

Staring at a 31-point deficit in the opening game is never a good way to start a series, but ultimately it's just one game. They try to beat us up in the half court and low block. Holiday tallied 11 points on 4-14 shooting and Nikola only nine points on 3-9 shooting from the field. The Warriors eliminated the San Antonio Spurs in Game 5 of the first-round series with a 99-91 win Tuesday night and Curry wants to make sure he doesn't disrupt any flow or momentum with the team on a roll.

Curry is recovering from a sprained left knee, but Kerr says it's likely he'll return for Game 2 on Tuesday night.

"We've adjusted to life without him".

"We have to protect him from himself and his own competitive desire", Kerr said. However, I still maintain that the Pelicans will go as far as Jrue Holiday takes them in these playoffs.

John Williams, accused of killing ME sheriff's deputy, caught; manhunt ends
Williams was considered armed and risky and officials were offering a $20,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest. The search for John Williams , suspected of shooting and killing Somerset County Sheriff's Corporal Eugene Cole, has ended.

And we haven't even mentioned Anthony Davis, who has been everything he normally is and then some after the team lost DeMarcus Cousins for the season to injury. That sensation returned in Game 1, particularly during a 25-2 second-quarter run, flattening the Pelicans immediately after their first-round sweep of the Blazers.

The question remains: Just how good are the New Orleans Pelicans?

The Warriors had no such problems on either end, racing up and down the floor with the swagger of a championship team that is ready to hit its stride after going through periods of malaise throughout the regular season.

However, Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said he's not reversing course on his team's style of play. Thankfully for the depth-challenged Pelicans, the league's postseason scheduler has provided two days rests between games 1 and 2 and games 2 and 3.

"(My) rookie year was a little forgettable", Thompson said.

"You have to be very disciplined against this team", said Gentry. New Orleans piled up more than 110 points in three of the four games in the series and stifled the prolific backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum for most of the series.

"The bottom line is he nearly had a triple-double by halftime".
