Can the New Orleans Pelicans Upset the Golden State Warriors?

Can the New Orleans Pelicans Upset the Golden State Warriors?

If the Pelicans go down, it'll be with those four guys on the court. His strength-projecting celebration afterward was that of a franchise player determined to lay the foundation of his playoff legacy with a dominant performance in the clutch.

The Warriors have the best offense in the postseason so far against arguably the best defense in the entire playoffs - and they're playing Andre Iguodala at point guard. "Like I've said before, we love being the underdogs".

Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday took over the second half, scoring 60 points between them to hold off a strong Blazers rally for a 131-123 win and a series sweep Saturday at the Smoothie King Center.

Rondo has always been a terrific team player and he is a key to why the Pelicans are winning and they could reach the Finals in the tough Western Conference.

The Trail Blazers may be ready to make a change.

The Pelicans also accomplished the only first-round sweep of this year's playoffs.

Damian Lillard, who I thought had the best chance to raise his stock in the playoffs, was vastly outplayed by Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holiday and completely disappeared during the four-game stretch. "Obviously, seeing success on the court with a team that was so successful during the regular season and having a big role in that-definitely helped me a lot". Davis and Holiday had to raise their games, and have come through beyond expectations. Prior to this year, he had made the playoffs just once in five tries, and he had failed to win a single game in his only postseason appearance thanks to a sweep by the Warriors in 2015.

Jets' Josh Morrissey suspended one game for cross-checking Eric Staal
But [the refs] were looking right at it and they told us they didn't see it, so you make up your minds". The Wild can make it 2-2 and pack momentum and confidence for their Game 5 trip to Winnipeg.

After a tightly contested first half in which neither team led by more than six points, New Orleans sprinted out of the halftime locker room. It was him that brought the game plan to me and said, 'This is what I want to do against them.' He said, 'I've studied every game that they've played this year nearly and seen what's been effective and hasn't been effective, and these are the things I want to do'. "I couldn't ask for a better duo right now, especially at the time of the game where he needed to get the ball in the hole". We can watch Game 4, through the comfortable lens of a 3-0 Pelicans lead, as a possible deciding night for series MVP. Moore finished with 14 points. Wade carried the comeback effort, with the Heat down six and less than two minutes left.

Portland had one last run in them, cutting the 100-87 third quarter deficit to two within three minutes.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reported there is buzz around the league that Stotts could be fired after the third-seeded Trail Blazers were swept by the New Orleans Pelicans in the first round of the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs, making it 10 straight postseason losses.

Davis then blocked an Al-Farouq Aminu three-point attempt, all but sealing the outcome.

It wasn't just the fans who showed up Thursday night.

James Harden led the way for Houston with 29 points, but Chris Paul fouled out with 17 points and the Rockets went just 15 for 41 from 3-point range.
