Pelicans coach was still scared despite big Game 3 lead against Warriors

Donovan Mitchell Kobe Bryant

"It was amusing", Kerr said of Curry's first bucket as quoted by USA Today. Curry will be starting, and the Pelicans look to their home crowd for encouragement, energy, and fuel to help them snag a win against a fully-charged Warriors squad with its baby-faced leader back in the mix. "To me, those are the kind of players that I'd like to have on the team". It was a good feeling.

The Golden State Warriors' All-Star power forward said he's not the one in this Western Conference semifinal series initiating the multiple encounters he's had with New Orleans Pelicans guard with Rajon Rondo.

"It brought a lot of life to the building, a lot of life to our team's spirit". E'twaun Moore also added 13 points while Ian Clark went 7-for-11 shooting for 18 points off the bench.

Davis finished with 33 points and 18 rebounds.

"It was tough", Davis said. They did a great job on Thompson in Game 2, rarely giving him an open look and forcing him into a 4-20 shooting performance. And if Game 2 was any indication, the New Orleans Pelicans are in for a rough Game 3. Curry racked up 28 points while shooting 8-of-15 on 3-pointers. He let it fly for a 30-foot 3 in the closing minute of the third.

In front of a rowdy, towel-waving, frenzied Smoothie King Center, this is what Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry expected.

It was a game for the ages if you were a Warriors fan.

Klay Thompson had 26 for the Warriors.

Under Armour launched a game show app focused on Steph Curry, the Golden State Warriors point guard who has won two National Basketball Association championships.

Nate Diaz reportedly negotiating to make UFC return
White would also like to see McGregor return to action and fight Nurmagomedov, but he also wants the bout to happen in Las Vegas. Nate Diaz is getting ready to make a high-profile UFC return, as he's sick of waiting around on the sidelines.

Will Steph Curry continue to score a point per minute in his second game back?

He already had a history of brilliant returns from injuries. He scored 11 points, and the Pelicans made 6 of 10 3-point tries in the first quarter.

The only back-to-back victor of the much-coveted MVP honor did more than that though coming up with an outstanding performance as if he never left, helping the defending champions to a 121-116 victory as the best-of-seven series moves to New Orleans Friday, PH time.

Green almost finished with a triple double in the loss-posting 11 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists-but he committed seven turnovers and was a minus-25 in 36 minutes.

The game had its testy moments. He combines a quick release with never before seen range and a handle that makes him much more than catch and shoot one trick pony. That came 14 seconds after a double-technical against Davis and Green after they got tangled and rolled around and over each other.

"I haven't been getting into it with Rondo", he said.

Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic may be the midseason acquisition of the year and he is certainly making the biggest impact of anyone who came over in a trade at the deadline in the postseason.

New Orleans jumped on the Warriors from the start of the game, leading the game 30-21 at the end of the first quarter. Take the points and New Orleans as they come up with a way to stay close once again. Nick Young started a second straight game.

"He's been saving himself for the playoffs", Kerr said.
