Warriors Tonight: Does Curry start or come off the bench?

  • 2018 NBA Playoffs: Warriors Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant share how their Christian faith helps win games

Curry has participated fully in the last four team practices, and he said that he personally felt ready to go for game 1.

"He came out well", Kerr said of the workout.

In late December against Memphis, Curry came back after being sidelined 11 games with a sprained right ankle to score 38 points with 10 3-pointers.

The Pelicans were competitive in the first quarter and then it was Golden State the rest of the way.

The New Orleans Pelicans forward has carried his team in every way since star center DeMarcus Cousins went down with a season-ending Achilles injury.

But moving Green to the five defensively without him skipping a beat puts the Warriors on a level the Pelicans will be hard-pressed to match in this series.

Sans Curry, the Warriors have scored 108.5 points per game in the playoffs and lead all playoff teams with 27.8 assists per game.

Curry, who had hoped to be cleared for Game 1, worked out with the club Monday. "He can impact a game and have five points". The Pelicans shot 7 for 23 in the second.

"The bottom line is he nearly had a triple-double by halftime".

"It's going to be a long series, we know that", fellow Pelicans frontcourt starter Nikola Mirotic said.

Warriors: Green topped Tom Gola's three playoff triple-doubles for most in franchise history. His playoff averages across the board are better than his regular-season numbers, and perhaps the most impressive offensive number he has through six postseason games is his average of 8.5 assists while compiling a 3.19 assists-to-turnover ratio.

His awe-inspiring play helped carry the squad back to the postseason and into the second round after a sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers. Holiday and Nikola Mirotic (18.3 points, 9.5 rebounds) gave franchise centerpiece Anthony Davis the support he needed.

Man oh man, just imagine how different the world would be if Thompson never saved the Warriors' bacon in that fateful Game 6 against the Thunder back in the 2016 Western Conference Finals. In Game 1 against the Warriors, he had 11 points on 4-for-14 shooting. "It's still best-out-of-seven. Our job is to learn from what we messed up tonight and get prepared for Game 2".
