In NBA playoffs, teams are quick to tinker with lineups

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr

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. "Today we went out there and knocked down some shots".

Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-15.

The Warriors blew out the Pelicans in Game 1, New Orleans was much more competitive in Game 2, and they finally broke through for a win in Game 3.

The Warriors will now return to Oakland with a 3-1 series lead needing just one more victory to get closer to their goal of a championship. Expect a blowout and a cover.

Manchester City awarded special gift by Triple H after Premier League triumph
City were in party mood as they celebrated the title they secured last month following Sunday's clash with Huddersfield . Triple H was so amazed with the champions' performances he made a decision to award them with a special WWE honour.

The offensive firepower that Golden State boasts makes it an unlikely proposition for any team to beat them three games in a row, but the Pelicans aren't thinking that far down the road. That was in stark contrast to the Game 3 shooting percentages of 50.0 overall and 45.2 from distance. It's tough advocating playing either again on this slate considering just how juicy the second game of the night should be.

"Deep down you know it's a hoax, but there's also a part of you that's like, 'Hey, we're talking about a game, ' " Kerr said. Draymond Green finished with eight points, nine rebounds and nine assists while Andre Iguodala, reinserted into the starting lineup, had six points, seven boards plus six assists. Game 5 is on Tuesday night.

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.

"KD ... he was just KD", Iguodala said when asked what led to the Warriors' explosive start.

The prize money is just a host of enhancements introduced to strengthen the stature of Asia's most prestigious competition. Meanwhile, Group C features Asian giants Korea and China together, while Group D has pitted Iran and Iraq together.

Pelicans star Anthony Davis put up 26 points and 12 rebounds and was a flawless 10 for 10 from the free-throw line. And whether he's still with the Pelicans remains to be seen; New Orleans wants him back, but he'll be a free agent this summer.

Durant appeared to be a lot more engaged in Game 4 after a lackluster performance Friday.

After Games 1 and 2 at Oracle Arena, the Pelicans let it be known that they weren't happy about the free-throw disparity. As good as the Pelicans point guard has been in these playoffs, his lack of a reliable jump shot (and his reluctance to even look at the basket on several possessions) hurt New Orleans' spacing and made it easier for the Warriors to crash the paint. They have the muscle memory leftover from the same journey from a year ago, with a groups so devastating that they can take apart any other team in basketball, when they are at their very best. We've got you completely covered.
