GETTYSteph Curry was back to his dominant self in Game 4
09 May, 2018, 00:56
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was pleased with how his team played in a 118-92 destruction of the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night. "He reminds me a lot of Scottie Pippen - [he] really does - in terms of defensive acumen and playing kind of a point forward role".
Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-15. But the Houston guard isn't looking ahead to what most expect will be a showdown with the defending champion Golden State Warriors in the next round.
Can the Golden State Warriors end their series with the New Orleans Pelicans in Game 5? I thought it was a good time to exhale, relax and get yourself ready, because obviously we have a monumental task ahead of us to win on Golden State's court. Expect a blowout and a cover. Their defensive rating through nine playoff games is 99.4 - best in the National Basketball Association. But this is the way we've played the whole season, so we're not going to all of a sudden try to adjust and do something completely different, because the success we've had has been based on playing at a fast pace and being a team that has played the fastest pace in the league.
"I know it sounds insane because you think everybody's going to bring the force every playoff game", says Kerr.
Anthony Davis had 26 points and 12 rebounds for New Orleans, but the Pelicans hit only 36 percent (32 of 88) of their shots, missing 22 of 26 three-point attempts.
In the meantime, Durant is averaging 28.4 points with 8.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists for the Warriors in the playoffs.
New Orleans seems like its has the type of players that aren't going to fold when the chips are going against it and I expect a better showing here than last game. The game starts at 10:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, and will air on TNT.
"KD ... he was just KD", Iguodala said when asked what led to the Warriors' explosive start.
"Just find ways to get him in scoring positions", Curry said.
In the game prior, the Warriors came out flat and found themselves defeated by the Pelicans, preventing a sweep from occurring. "I don't care how good your defence is". But you can call it whatever you want when a player like Durant is added to an already championship mix. That, and solid defense that included Green's block of Rondo's layup, helped Golden State open a 10-point lead in the first four minutes. "The plan was to get that, so we wouldn't be a one-dimensional team". The Warriors held them to fewer than 104 points in four out of five games. Those little tweaks could play enough of a difference to return the series back to New Orleans.
And these are the ebbs and flows of a playoff series - especially when you get past the first round, everybody's really good. No more E'Twaun Moore or Holiday out of control dribble drives into trafic resulting in low percentage shots or turnovers.
