Warriors' Stephen Curry questionable for Game 1

Warriors' Steph Curry sitting out Game 1 against Pelicans

Game 2 had better wake New Orleans up, or this series could end up being one of the most disappointing of the entire playoffs.

The Warriors swept the Pelicans in the only other playoff meeting between the franchises in the 2015 first round as Golden State went on to capture its first championship in 40 years.

New Orleans swept Portland right out of the playoffs but the team is going to have to tighten up defensively if they hope to battle with the Warriors.

"We know this team is fast-paced and they score a lot of points and they have got guys that can go off and score 30, 40 points, so we've just got to be ready for it", Kevin Durant said. Holiday is averaging 27.8 points per game and Mirotic is averaging 18.3. The Warriors will have a hard task on their hands in trying to lock down Davis, but the Pelicans will be hard-pressed to keep up their hot streak from their series against Portland after almost a week off. Thompson lit up the Spurs for 22.6 points and a silly 63.3 true-shooting percentage in the first round.

Dolphins nab Penn State's Gesicki in NFL Draft's 2nd round
While he possesses supreme athleticism for the position, he admitted that he must improve as a run blocker. A basketball and volleyball star in high school in Manahawken, N.J., Gesicki is a multitalented athlete.

Once Golden State got going in transition, the crowd became deafening and the Pelicans couldn't keep pace - with tempo being something the Warriors know is key this series.

The difference was in the number of free throws each team shot.

Meanwhile in the West, the Warriors and Pelicans tipped off the second round with a massively one-sided contest. But Anthony Davis can only do so much. Holiday struggled all night to find an offensive rhythm, shooting just 4-for-14 from the field. Rajon Rondo had a typical postseason game with seven points, seven rebounds and 16 assists in the win.

Klay Thompson scored 27 points with six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

There were bright spots for the Pels, but none bright enough to avoid being eclipsed by the sheer force of the Warriors attack. Golden State defeated the San Antonio Spurs in five games to advance to the second round. Davis is an unstoppable force on both ends when healthy and focused, Holiday is playing like an All-Star, Mirotic is on fire (averaging 25.1 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.6 threes on a 46.4 percent clip during the nine-game winning streak) and the role players have been solid.

The Golden State Warriors arguably underperformed in their opening round series. If the Pelicans can force Draymond Green, Shaun Livingston, and Andrew Iguodala into taking too many attempts, that takes the ball out of the hands of their best shooters. Kevon Looney stepped into the rotation for Jordan Bell and contributed eight points and three boards in 23 minutes. New Orleans Pelicans series starts tonight, kicking off the Western Conference Semi-Finals. We saw their own pride come out in various ways, including fun and physicality, against the Trail Blazers. Rare for a big man.

The latest reports show Curry could return for his squad's Game 1 matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans in Round 2 of the NBA Playoffs.
