Curry expects to rejoin Warriors lineup in Game 2

#[Live-Tv]New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors Live Stream

With that, they were able to hang with Golden State trailing only 35-34 after the first quarter.

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

The New Orleans Pelicans at full strength could conceivably push the Warriors to 6 or 7 games.

Klay Thompson led the night's shooting barrage with 27-points, but the story will be the insurmountable lead Golden State amassed in the first half. "We've done it in the regular season". But the playoffs are here and our guys feel that. And these are the National Basketball Association playoffs we're talking about.

The Warriors rolled to a 123-101 victory with their star on the bench. The Pelicans seemingly lapsed into the kind of frustrating offensive play that punctuated some of the team's more head-scratching losses this season.

'Confused' Wenger to take a month off after Arsenal exit
Both Mourinho and Ferguson also recognize what Wenger has done for the Premier League, and for English football as a whole. Old Trafford has been the bane of Arsene Wenger's existence for much of his 22 years at the helm of Arsenal Football Club.

The results were devastating and demoralizing.

Durant had a 26-point, 13-rebound double-double, while Green recorded his fourth career playoff triple-double with 16 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists for the Warriors, who have beaten the Pelicans in 25 of their past 27 head-to-heads, including a 4-0 sweep in the 2015 first round. Through those 4 games, they averaged the highest points per game and the highest field goal percentage. No one could have anyone guessed he would notch just 21 points on 20 attempts in 33 minutes. Jrue Holiday, who had his way with Portland's undersized backcourt, struggled to contend with Durant's length.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, asked after the game if he allowed himself to enjoy his teams dominant second quarter, responded "Of course, how could I not enjoy that?"

Kerr knows the importance of having his most important player as healthy as possible going into the conference finals and possibly the finals.

For their part, the Pelicans coaches and players said it was only one game. This is not anything new to the league, really. As the defending champs, Golden State being favored isn't a shocker. The Warriors have played fast for Kerr's entire tenure, they have smart and strong interior defenders to use on Davis and their deep wing rotation has succeeded in limiting MVP-caliber players like LeBron James and James Harden in the postseason. The Pelicans shot a remarkable 60% in the opening quarter, while the Warriors shot 45%.

India, China agree to keep border peace at 'milestone' informal summit
The two leaders also agreed to set up a joint economic project in Afghanistan, which is strategically important to both nations. They started the summit talks at the Hubei Provincial Museum where Xi took Modi around introducing the historic artefacts.

As if Golden State's thorough dominance wasn't bad enough, New Orleans must contend with the fact that Game 1 had perhaps the most favorable circumstances of the series. 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.

Now, they likely get Curry back for Game 2 on Tuesday night and all that he brings - even if in a limited role initially.

Through their first two weeks, these playoffs have felt anything but preordained. "He's playing with a lot of rage", Rondo said.

The Warriors playing this well without Stephen Curry spells disaster for New Orleans.
