Steph Curry remains out as Warriors eye Game 2 return
Apr 29, 2018, 13:45
With Curry in the lineup this season, the Warriors went 41-10 while averaging 120.4 points per 100 possessions, which would be the best offensive rating over the past 20 seasons.
The Warriors hope to have two-time MVP Stephen Curry back from an MCL sprain that's kept him sidelined since March 23. The Warriors had proven that when they eliminated the San Antonio Spurs in five games in their first-round playoff series. The sixth-seeded New Orleans Pelicans are on the road as they face the second-seeded Golden State Warriors Saturday night. However, the feeling is the Warriors don't think this series will be anything close to a breeze with the way the Pelicans are playing. Davis will get his numbers and this will not be a slow series, but the Warriors can't let Rondo control pace himself. It's not like he's going to miss the entire series.

Thompson hit 10 of his 22 field-goal attempts and four of his nine 3-pointers, helping Golden State outscore New Orleans 33-24 from beyond the arc. With a trip to the conference finals hanging in the balance, Golden State would rather hold its franchise player out another game to make sure he is at full strength than put him at risk of re-injury. But Holiday and Rondo just played a great backcourt in Damian Lillard and C.J.
The Warriors have made modifications to their offense without Steph Curry. Holiday is averaging 27.8 points, 6.5 assists, and 4 rebounds per game in the playoffs while shooting a torrid 57% from the floor.
The Warriors know how much the addition of Nikola Mirotic meant to New Orleans since he was acquired to fill the void left by Cousins' absence. If the Pelicans can force Draymond Green, Shaun Livingston, and Andrew Iguodala into taking too many attempts, that takes the ball out of the hands of their best shooters. With Al Horford (26 points) owning the paint and Terry Rozier (26 points, five-of-eight from three-point range) ripping the nets from outside, the Celtics built a 19-point lead with five minutes remaining before coasting home.
"His movements are getting better day-by-day", player-development coach Bruce Fraser, who works closely with Curry, said after shoot-around Saturday morning.
A fast-paced, back-and-forth first quarter concluded with the Warriors holding a slim 35-34 lead over the Pelicans. However, the Pelicans have a great chance of winning this series.
