Warriors' Stephen Curry Expected Back for Game 2 Against the Pelicans

Warriors' Steph Curry sitting out Game 1 against Pelicans

Looking at the betting trends, the Pelicans are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and 23-10 ATS in their last 33 games overall while the Warriors are 3-6 ATS in their last nine home games. The Pelicans offense relies so heavily on Davis playing like the superstar he is that when he has a performance that is poor by his standards, such as last night's. the team has nearly no shot of contending with this Warriors team. The Warriors' big men did a very effective job of slowing down Davis, with the performance by Kevon Looney being the most noteworthy. Even so, it is a very encouraging sign. Looney finished the game with a ridiculous +34 plus/minus, and it was a result of his disciplined defense on Anthony Davis and on switches to smaller guards like Jrue Holiday.

Will the Pelicans win this thing by playing fast? He is one of the best shooters in the league, and he has the benefit of excellent stamina as well. Probably not. But it's sure going to be fun to watch them try.

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. He could have helped Golden State establish an offensive tone for the series. The team's best defenders are their two guards, who are too small to stay in front of Durant.

"I fully expect him to play Tuesday night", Kerr said.

Putin has also attended Emelianenko's fights and has been photographed with the fighter, according to the AP. Mir, meanwhile, has been sidelined for over two years due to a performance-enhancing drug suspension.


Kevin Durant didn't even play his best game last night and still walked away with 26 points on almost 50% shooting.

Yes, Curry is important and the Pelicans are a threat, but having the two-time MVP healthy for a potential Western Conference Finals series with the No. 1 seed Rockets is far more important.

While Draymond had an vast game, his fellow All-Stars Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant did more than their fair share as well, carrying most of the load of the Warriors' offense with their red-hot shooting. The game started as a high-paced shootout, with the first quarter ending 35-34 to the Warriors, but a vicious second quarter onslaught from the Warriors-41 to 21-left the Pelicans facing an uphill battle for the rest of the game.
