Stephen Curry probable for Game 2 vs. Pelicans

Steph Curry is expected to make his return in Game 2

Two-time MVP Steph Curry didn't play as he's rehabbing from an ankle injury that's kept him out of the lineup for almost two months. Golden State probably doesn't need Curry to get past New Orleans. However, Curry's expected return in Tuesday's Game 2 will be a welcome sight as the Warriors look to take control of this series and ultimately repeat as champions.

They did so without the help of two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, who missed his 15th game in a row due to a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee.

Warriors: Green topped Tom Gola's three playoff triple-doubles for most in franchise history. Those numbers were down from the 28.1 points a game and 53.4% shooting he averaged this season and 33 points a game and 59.7% shooting he averaged against the Warriors all year. "I thought Kevin's size factored in, and Kevin did a great job on him".

"I'd be very surprised if he didn't play", Kerr told reporters.

"He loves the game just as much as anybody I ever been around and I know he wants to play".

Spears of The Undefeated that he simply hopes to not play poorly after missing so much time.

Golden State won Game 1 123-101 over New Orleans. Golden State is a 10.5-point favorite, according to OddsShark, and the over/under is 226.5. The Warriors shot 13 for 20 in the second, making four 3s and 11 of 14 free throws. "If there's a minutes restriction, maybe we would consider bringing him off the bench for timing purposes, but at this point it's hard to say". It's a lack of communication and not being disciplined. "I think those were the two main things".

Mueller has dozens of questions for Trump
The questions also touch on Russian meddling and whether the Trump campaign coordinated in any way with the Kremlin. The lawyers want to resolve the investigation as quickly as possible, but there's no agreement on how to do that.

The 76ers began the season at 150-1 to win a championship, per OddsShark, equal to the Utah Jazz, who are also still alive. Saturday nights game was played at approximately * a href="http://stats.nba.com/teams/advanced/?sort=PACE&dir=-1&CF=MIN*GE*15&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Playoffs&PORound=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *105.96 possessions.

In the playoffs, Green has improved his scoring average by 1.2 points per game over his regular season numbers. He had games of 19 and 18 rebounds in the final two matchups of a five-game series with San Antonio in the first round.

"We all like to get out in transition, " Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said.

So what happened in Game 1?

The top-seeded Raptors opened the postseason a step behind the Cavs in our pre-playoff rankings, based exclusively on the fact Cleveland employs LeBron James.

Toronto eliminated the Wizards in a six-game first round and now the challenge is stopping LeBron and his supporting cast.
