Durant sizzles to put Warriors on cusp of series win

Durant sizzles to put Warriors on cusp of series win

The jawing between Green and Rajon Rondo might make Green an unpopular person in the New Orleans area, but it shouldn't overshadow how Green affects the game in so many ways. Curry, who hasn't played since March 23, was declared out shortly before gametime. In the following quarters, the Warriors once again exploded on the offensive ends of the floor, while the Pelicans struggled to regain their rhythm. Of course, it went in. He is averaging 29.6 points per game. After a first-half barrage of 10 3-pointers, New Orleans abused Golden State inside in the third period.

But what were the reasons behind this game being so one sided? And no one outside of Anthony Davis scored. "He wouldn't leave (Jrue Holiday's) body".

The Warriors landed back in the Bay Area and the clock still read Sunday, around 11 p.m., a benefit of an afternoon tip in New Orleans.

Mitchell started finding lanes to the basket late and got the Jazz within 85-80 after he fueled a 10-2 run.

For the first time in his 12-year career, guard Chris Paul could advance to the National Basketball Association conference championship round.

The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets both raced to lopsided wins on Sunday and can book their spots in the Western Conference Finals with victories on their home courts today. Durant is only shooting 28.1% from 3.

Kerr has been hesitant to use the Death lineup too much for fear of wearing down Green, who at 6-foot-7, has to match up with significantly bigger players. As evidenced by his 27 field-goal attempts, Durant didn't hesitate to capitalize when scoring opportunities presented themselves.

It's nearly automatic to pencil Anthony Davis down for at least 25 points and 10 rebounds in an elimination game. He had six points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block. Instead, the Pelicans came out flat and were steamrolled in Game 4, putting their proverbial backs to the wall. Incidentally, he didn't have a single turnover. On the bright side, he did have 11 rebounds.

The Warriors head back to the Bay area with a 3-1 series lead and are scheduled to host the Pelicans on Tuesday. Their 28 assists were a nice total, but a bit deceiving.

The Warriors stormed out to a 20-8 lead with 5:44 left in the first quarter. He has at least 37.5 fantasy points in all four games of this series and he put up 51.25 in Game 4. He finished with 12 points in 17:12.

Green has been pretty reliable in this series, because he doesn't need points to have a strong fantasy night. The Chicago Bulls set the standard of 15 straight home wins from April 1990 to May 1991. That's easier said than done in Oracle Arena.

"He can go 1-for-12 from three in the next game". In fact, Betfair Sports has posted very lopsided odds in favor of Golden State at 1.12, while the Pelicans are at 7.00.

The game plan doesn't seem to have changed for Golden State. But with the Pelicans winning 119-100, they didn't have any complaints. The Pelicans fell into the trap of trying to sustain a fast tempo, something that the Warriors are experts at.

"We made them make adjustments", Gentry said, "and I think that's always good because you want to try to stay with what you do".
