Warriors slam Pelicans with dominant 2nd quarter 123-101

The Pelicans don't play anywhere near the defense the Spurs do and, in Saturday's Game 1 at Oracle Arena, they tried to play with the Warriors pace on offense.

"I try to think about what it means to get back in not just game shape - my normal minutes I usually play - but on top of that, we're talking about the playoffs and the second round".

The Warriors were never in danger Saturday, ultimately winning Game 1 by a score of 123-101.

As freaky and unfortunate as that play was, it still hammers in the point home that the Warriors need a healthy Curry to win a championship - so it may be in their best interest to wait and see. Klay Thompson scored 13 points, drilling one jumper after the next from the same spot in the right corner. Klay Thompson had a productive night in the victory, sinking 27 points on a 10 for 22 shooting performance which included four three-pointers.

The Pelicans led the National Basketball Association this regular season in possessions per game, while the Spurs ranked just 29th in that same category. New Orleans surrendered 110 or more points in the last 11 regular-season games against Golden State. The 29-year old small forward was outstanding in round one against the Spurs, averaging 28.2 points in the six game series. He finished with 16 points to go along with 15 rebounds and 11 assists. Their rebounding has been sharp as they have out-rebounded their opponents in five of their six playoff games, and overall this team is looking unstoppable.

Having Curry back on the court would have been a big boon for the Warriors in Game 1.

But the result was they had to sit around for a week before beginning their series against the Warriors. If you cannot follow the Warriors vs Warriors game Live on your TV, do not worry, you can still watch the 2015 Season Games Online from your PC TV.

A Few Notes On Josh Rosen's Press Conference
Josh Rosen wants everyone to know he was dealing with a lot of feelings Thursday night. "That's kind of what gets to me". Cardinals fans, Rosen just showed you how much he cares about the game.

The defending champions are dominating again, and now Stephen Curry is ready to rejoin the mix and make them that much better. As a team, the Pelicans shot just 43 percent from the field and eight of 25 from the three-point line but there was just no coming back as they trailed by as many as 30 points late in the third quarter.

Saturday night's provided a glimpse of the Warriors' defensive prowess over the last two weeks. The team's best defenders are their two guards, who are too small to stay in front of Durant. The Pelicans are more equipped for an up-tempo game than to slow the ball down and operate in a plodding half-court setting.

He could be under a minutes restriction - one that could even put him on the bench - or he could be strong enough to play 40 minutes in Game 2.
