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.

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 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.

"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".
