New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors 5/1/18, Prediction & Odds

Adjust Comment Print

During the team's Monday practice, head coach Steve Kerr announced that Stephen Curry is officially probable for game two against the Pelicans on Tuesday night.

While Anthony Davis and the starters will expect a better performance from themselves tonight in Oakland, the production and play of the bench will also be key in keeping the game close or helping maintain the pace at which the Pelicans want to play. "I'd be very surprised if he didn't play." said Kerr.

Curry's return will require a brief adjustment period as Golden State reincorporates him into the lineup.

Golden State routed New Orleans 123-101 in Game 1. We'll have to wait and see what shakes out, but what we do know is that barring any kind of insane setback, Curry will be in the game on Tuesday.

Regardless of if he is at 100% or not, his return should spell doom for the Pelican's chances at an upset in the series. It's unclear if the Golden State Warriors coaching staff will impose a minutes restriction on Steph Curry as he returns to action against the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday night.

If anyone doubted that, they needed to look no further than Game 1 against the Pelicans. You know, what we've got to do is, we've got to get (Daivs) more involved in the game from the standpoint of even the double-teams, we've got to get him out on the floor and get space, and we've got to do a better job of shot selection. He added that it's important for Steph Curry to regain his in-game rhythm. Most likely, the Warriors have a showdown with the top-seeded Houston Rockets looming in the Western ConferenceF finals.

Kevin Durant and Draymond Green ignited a brilliant second quarter with their defense and all-out hustle plays, then Golden State got rolling in transition and Oracle Arena started rocking the way it does this time of year.

With Durant needing a new contract this summer and Green only having two more seasons left on his deal, the Warriors will have to make a decision on Thompson and how rich of a deal they'll be willing to dole out to him. We're not going to all of a sudden walk the ball up the court now and try to play slow. "Every game day we probably have 10, 11 guys show up for the 30-minute Bible study, prayer service - daily encouragement that's the biggest thing". The Pelicans only scored 7 points in the seven possessions listed with Thompson or Young as the primary Davis defender, a tradeoff the Warriors will take in that alignment.
