Steve Kerr expands on fitness for Pelicans playoff series

Stephen Curry injury update: Warriors star is '50-50' to play in Game 1 against Pelicans, report says

Golden State is 3-12 ATS in its last 15 games following a straight up win.

Davis doesn't think New Orleans can win the series, he truly believes it.

Stephen Curry is impatient and eager to get back in a game for the Golden State Warriors, yet he knows it's not worth risking re-injuring his left knee by pushing his return too soon. While the Warriors will still have the talent advantage in this series, Davis and Jrue Holiday's stellar play in the opening round (along with fantastic performances from Rajon Rondo and Nikola Mirotic) would indicate that this series might be tougher than many would have expected.

The Pelicans enter Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal against the Warriors on Saturday believing they can knock off the defending National Basketball Association champions and win the series.

His success has continued into the NBA Playoffs 2018.


As good as Lillard and McCollum are, Curry and Thompson would pose an altogether deeper set of problems. If Curry plays, the Warriors should shoot far better than their poor 33.6% mark from long range against the Spurs.

The Golden State Warriors got past the San Antonio Spurs in the first round with relative ease, but the streaking New Orleans Pelicans should provide a greater challenge. Though the league has yet to announce the full second-round schedule, the Warriors expect to play Game 2 in Oakland on Monday, Game 3 in New Orleans on Friday and Game 4 in New Orleans on Sunday. But, given their dominance in the first round, they're playing freely and are extremely risky at the moment. Both of them were almost unstoppable in the first round, and both are also major factors on the defensive end.

The Warriors can cover the spread by keying defensively on the one player who can singlehandedly steal a game from them: Anthony Davis. While Holiday, Rondo and Mirotic are also offensive threats, I just can't see the Warriors achieving a convincing win if Davis develops a rhythm early.

The Warriors are limited in their options in terms of keeping Davis in check. "We back." The two then leapt into the air, bumping chests and giggling. David West is too slow, and Draymond Green is too small. If the Warriors make short work of the Pelicans, it may tarnish their takedown of the Blazers and what Davis did to make that happen. That could prove hard against the red-hot backcourt of Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holiday. Prove to the Pelicans right off the bat that while they may have matched up well against the Blazers, Golden State is on a much higher level entirely. The Warriors will have a hard task on their hands in trying to lock down Davis, but the Pelicans will be hard-pressed to keep up their hot streak from their series against Portland after almost a week off.
