Warriors' Steph Curry sitting out Game 1 against Pelicans

Live Stream, Golden State Warriors. vs New Orleans Pelicans.

Needless to say, adding that kind of production back to the Warriors' rotation with the way they are already playing is a scary thought for the Pelicans and everyone else in the Western Conference playoff picture.

Kerr said before the team's second-round series opener against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday that Curry would miss game one but "very likely play Tuesday" in game two. The injury that sidelined him since March, on the other hand, was an MCL sprain as a result of teammate JaVale McGee falling over backwards to his knee after contesting a shot. Considering they were the lower seed, that's even more impressive. "Our guys feel that, our fans feel that". Rondo had things working as he neared a triple-double through three quarters (nine points, 11 assists, eight rebounds) but again the starters didn't play in the fourth quarter.

The Warriors rolled to a 123-101 victory with their star on the bench. Anthony Davis, their best player and a legitimate MVP candidate, scored just 21 points and shot 45 percent from the field.

Klay Thompson did make New Orleans pay, leading the Warriors with 27 on four 3-pointers and was unconscious in the second quarter when they outscored the Pelicans 41-21 and essentially ended the game.

The results were devastating and demoralizing. He finished the game with a triple-double, including 16 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists. However, the supporting cast wasn't there, as Jrue Holiday and Mirotic struggled to find their stroke. And the Pelicans lost the track meet, conceding 20 points off turnovers.

As the team gets deeper into their latest playoff run, coach Kerr sees the Warriors' defensive output only getting better. I think that was the turning point for us when he got that shot at the rim.

However, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said he's not reversing course on his team's style of play. [The Warriors] done it before. "You can't afford to do it against this team". He could have helped Golden State establish an offensive tone for the series.

The Pelicans are fresh of absolutely destroying the Portland Trail Blazers in their first round series.

Most teams don't attempt to race up the floor with the Warriors. 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.

But this much is certain: Nobody is beating this version of the Warriors-the one that finally showed up with every switch flipped Saturday-four times out of seven. Curry, who is considered one of the best offensive players in the league, will be an incredible addition whenever he is able to come back.
