Davis Thinks the Pelicans Can Stop Golden State

Rested Sixers still favorite in NBA East, waiting for Bucks or Celtics

Rested Sixers still favorite in NBA East, waiting for Bucks or Celtics

After missing 16 of the last 17 games of the regular season and the first five games of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, a former back-to-back MVP may finally return to the court for the Golden State Warriors on Saturday. Dragiev nailed the opening game of Warriors-Spurs, telling SportsLine readers to back the Under.

It's been over a month since Stephen Curry has played in a game due to a knee issue.

While describing what it's like playing against another team that likes to get up and down the floor, New Orleans star Anthony Davis set the tone for the rest of the series with his response. When asked what he expected to see from Davis in this series, teammate Jrue Holiday responded with a confident answer. Stephen Curry, who is recovering from a Grade 2 MCL sprain, is questionable for Game 1.

Nine investment analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and nineteen have given a buy rating to the company's stock. Several analysts have released their opinion on The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA), with 11 analysts believing it is a strong buy.

But for Davis, this is more than an opportunity. Without Curry, the Warriors' offense runs through Durant, and it has paid off. Durant is averaging 28.2 points per game so far in the playoffs. New Orleans Pelicans series starts tonight, kicking off the Western Conference Semi-Finals. A big like Davis has the height to guard Durant, but not the quickness.

Kerr claimed last week that Curry was "not close" to returning to action leading to some concerns he may miss a large chunk of the series against the Pelicans.

Golden State looked every bit the champions they are in disposing of San Antonio, the only reason that series was extended to five games is the championship-caliber pride of the Spurs franchise. While the Pelicans have a coaching staff intimately familiar with the Warriors style in both Hornets head coach Alvin Gentry and associate head coach Darren Erman, who both served as assistants at Golden State, there is a difference in knowing how to stop the Warriors and executing that gameplan. That's pretty much what this series came down to. Davis is the highest scorer this postseason and Holiday was a two-way nightmare in outplaying Portland's Damian Lillard. The Pelicans have won nine consecutive games by averaging 118.2 points and shooting 52% from the field and 40% from three-point range. That could prove hard against the red-hot backcourt of Rajon Rondo and Jrue Holiday.

Though Golden State has more firepower with four All-Stars on their team, New Orléans has talent on its roster as well. The 27-year-old guard put up 27.8 points and 6.5 assists per game to go along with hounding defense. The Pelicans need players like Holiday, Nikola Mirotic, and Rondo to continue to help Davis on the offensive end.

The Pelicans enter Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal against the Warriors on Saturday believing they can knock off the defending National Basketball Association champions and win the series.
