New Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors Free Preview 05/08/18

Anthony Davis and the Pelicans drop Game 4 to Warriors Anthony Davis and the Pelicans drop Game 4 to Warriors

These include one secret weapon that is now not-so secret, a player that no team is equipped to contain, and a formula for winning that when accomplished, nearly always results in a Golden State Warriors win.

Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-15. With their 118-92 Game 4 win over the New Orleans Pelicans, the series is all but destined to end in Oakland on Tuesday, with the New Orleans crowd still left to savor their Game 3 treat.

The "Death Lineup" breathed new life into the Golden State Warriors. Expect a blowout and a cover.

The Warriors average 29.2 assists per game, which ranks first in the National Basketball Association.

"We're not looking to win three games, we're looking to win one". But when you lose by 26 points, I guess it's hard to direct even the tiniest bit of blame toward the three guys blowing the whistles. Durant was a big reason for it-he racked up 38 points on 15-for-27 shooting and seemed in control from start to finish, elevating over smaller defenders to get seemingly any shot he wanted. That was evident on Sunday, as Golden State totaled 28 assists, right in line with its regular season and playoff averages.

When Kevin Durant decides to take over a game, there is no stopping him.

The Rockets and Jazz will face off in Game 5 Tuesday in Houston.




Durant said he was a little surprised to already have an unopened text waiting for him, but he wasn't surprised by Green's viewpoint.

The Pelicans rank first in points in the paint per game (52.6) while the Warriors rank 23rd (43.4).

The host Pelicans, led by 26 points and 12 rebounds from Anthony Davis, never led while Golden State stretched the lead to as many as 26 points.

Maybe Durant would have drifted further away from his normal style of play if it hadn't been for Green giving him a gentle nudge back to where he needed to be. He scored 10 points in those games, though none of that mattered much to the Celtics. A squad that went toe-to-toe with Golden State putting points on the scoreboard in the previous two games couldn't even score 40 points in the second half.

Quinn Cook played the best postseason game of his career on Sunday, playing actual meaningful minutes off the bench.

The Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 228 points with Golden State set as a 12-point favorite. We're a team that fights through everything. "That's the attitude we have to take into Oracle". I personally, No. 1, don't worry about it and No. 2, don't care that much about it. "We originally had a practice scheduled but we do have guys that are playing heavy minutes", Gentry told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
