The New Orleans Pelicans Go For The Sweep Today At Home

In one of the biggest games in team history, it was stars Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday who shinned brightest, combining for 88 points in the win.

Since moving Nikola Mirotic into the starting lineup nine games ago, the Pelicans are 9-0, including a sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs. No team in National Basketball Association history has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.

Then, just a couple minutes later, Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo got into it with Blazers big man Zach Collins after the latter committed a loose ball foul.

"A lot of people counted us out after the injury to DeMarcus, so this is unbelievable", Davis said following Saturday's series-clinching, 131-123 victory over third-seeded Portland.

New Orleans awaits the victor of the Golden State versus San Antonio series in the second round. McCollum for most of the series has struggled equally. "I don't think it's turmoil if you win (58) games". If Curry comes back even close to 100 percent, it's scary to imagine what this Golden State offense will look like. And they played Golden State and got swept. The excitement level was high around New Orleans, but expectations around the country were tepid. They took Lillard and McCollum out of the game for most of the series. Down 3-0 in the series, there is no room for error.

New Orleans ranks third in fast break points per game (15.3) while Portland ranks last (8.6). New Orleans had the momentum. "I think Anthony said it best, they were sleeping on us and it seemed everybody counted us out, but to be here in this moment feels pretty good".

Heading into the offseason after a disappointing end to the season, there will be a lot of questions surrounding this franchise both on the court and in the front office. Each of them played at least 35 minutes in three of the four playoff games, with the only exception coming in a Game 3 blowout. "I couldn't be happier for a guy on my team". "I didn't come here to beat a team in the first round or the second round", said the 32-year-old Rondo, who won a title with Boston in 2008. Although, Davis has been brilliant all series long and might just as easily play Nurkic out of the game. "We believe in each other", Rondo continued. Obviously, the blowout in Game 3, we were just totally outplayed.

Even after leading his team to 49 victories and a Northwest Division title during the regular season, Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts could be on the hot seat.

Davis and Holiday put on a clinic in the second half - scoring 60 of the Pelicans 73 points on a series of drives, layups, put backs, jumpers and threes as they broke out to a 100-87 lead after 3.

"He's had it hard. That your players get better", he said. "You've gotta give credit where it's due". "I've seen him completely take over games". "So, you can't be mad at him".

As for the Pelicans, Davis, Mirotic, Rondo, and Holiday have been consistent fantasy-wise.
