Stephen Curry out for Game 1 vs. Pelicans; likely for Game 2

In this picture, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, reacts during the first half against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center in Chicago, Jan. 17, 2018.

Welcome to the second round of the NBA Playoffs New Orleans Pelicans fans. His 15 rebounds helped the Warriors out-rebound the Pelicans 65-46, a huge disparity on the glass.

It was hoped that Curry could return for the first round of the post season as the Warriors took on the San Antonio Spurs, but he had to sit court-side as his team-mates overcame the Spurs 4-1.

Davis' counterpart, Draymond Green, had a monster game.

Davis led the Pelicans with 21 points and 10 rebounds while Rajon Rondo dished out 11 assists. These two teams met in the first round a few years ago, with Golden State sweeping the Pelicans en route to their first championship.

But all of those things happened, and everything right just seemed to go right for the Dubs in Game 1.

What is actually possibly sustainable and just as impressive is the defense played on Jrue Holiday in this game.

"If we can push the tempo and try to get stuff in transition that's big for us, so that was key and obviously that starts with stops", Green said.

NBA. The Warriors were led by Kevin Durant who scored 27 points and had 13 rebounds. "If there's a minutes restriction, maybe we would consider bringing him off the bench for timing purposes, but at this point it's hard to say". The Warriors had no problem scoring points in the regular season against the Pelicans, averaging 120.7 points in four games, and they also shot over 50% in three of the regular season meetings.

"I fully expect him to play Tuesday night", Kerr said ahead of their win in Game 1 on Saturday night, as quoted on nba.com. I think that was the turning point for us when he got that shot at the rim.

"When you've been out five weeks and you want to play in the playoffs, I don't think one scrimmage is enough".

"He just said he feels great and he's ready to go", Kerr said.

But despite the skepticism that surrounded them - and some of it was growing even from the inside, by the way - this looks very much like a team that could pull off their first back-to-back title (and a third in four years). "The shots that we usually make and we were making in Round One, we weren't making yesterday".
