Warriors Tonight: Will it be closing time for New Orleans?

The Warriors would prefer to play a more free-flowing style and whip the ball around instead of putting Durant on an island and relying on him to score in one-on-one situations. With the dub, the Warriors took a 3-1 lead over the New Orleans Pelicans. I wasn't aggressive in game three and I knew that.

The Warriors bolted to a 17-4 lead barely five minutes into Sunday's game. Coming back from a 3-game deficit is not common in the playoffs, especially for a team with limited playoff experience, at least in the modern day, but that is exactly what Philly needs to do, or else they will find themselves off the court until next season. Boston's young standout was brilliant in Game 3 with 24 points, and the Celtics were plus-24 when he was on the floor. "(Durant) wouldn't leave Jrue (Holiday's) body.

Golden State bounced back after a disappointing showing in Game 3 as they put the boots to New Orleans off the opening tip and never looked back.

I have no doubt that, barring an earth shaking performance from Davis, the Warriors will take the opportunity to put New Orleans away at home.

Clint Capela, the anchor of the Houston defense, had 12 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks, one of which featured a Dikembe Mutombo-like finger wag in the fourth quarter.

When the nickname was used by a reporter during his post-game press conference, it prompted a brilliant response from coach Kerr. The Rockets are the second-highest ranked team (aside from the Warriors) at 2.75 to win a championship.

Ojeleye was on the floor to help open the next three games, the first starts of his rookie season. The Warriors have been good at the charity stripe, cashing in 81.4 percent of their chances so far.

Head to head, the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, the Jazz are 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Houston.

Kerr has always preferred to save the group for crunchtime as opposed to first quarters - even in the days when it was Harrison Barnes in Durant's place.

Curry scored 23 points as the Warriors bounced back from defeat on Friday night to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 118-92.

Green was instrumental in the Warriors' victory, scoring eight points but also providing nine rebounds and nine assists for the reigning National Basketball Association champions.

For game four, Kerr drafted Andre Iguodala into the starting lineup alongside Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
