Pelicans call out ESPN experts after everyone picked the Warriors to advance

Curry, listed as questionable entering Saturday's contest in Oakland, told ESPN's Chris Haynes that he plans to make his playoff debut on Tuesday, while acknowledging that the decision is up to the team's medical staff. While the Warriors controlled and dissected the Spurs in the first round, they never quite captured the invincibility that has defined their peak moments over the past four years.

Both dating myself and allowing my mental soundness to be questioned, I cite the movie Rocky 4, where Apollo Creed is dancing around and believing he is toying with Ivan Drago, and then Drago's trainer slams the mat, shouts out something to the fighter, who goes on to hand out a massive assault, that ultimately proved fatal. However, following the All-Star break, the Warriors' defensive fortunes plummeted as they battled through injuries to Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, as they found themselves locked into the second seed in the Western Conference.

With all signs pointing to Steph Curry returning to the court on Tuesday for Game 2 following a six week layoff, the Warriors are once again looking like a team capable of winning their third National Basketball Association title in four seasons.

The speed and totality of the devastating run was mesmerizing. "Mentally, just locking in to the matchup or the schemes or whatever it is, brings out a little more intensity". That came shortly after a tight opening period where New Orleans trailed 35-34.

During his first season with the Pelicans, he developed a stress fracture in his lower leg that required surgery, but one of the screws used to fix the fracture became an irritant, forcing additional procedures. But even after averaging 28 points, nine rebounds, and five assists against the Spurs, KD clearly has another level he can reach, and chances are he reaches it against the Pelicans, who don't really have anyone on their roster who can hang with Durant defensively.

"What we've got to do is get AD more involved in the game", Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. They touched on the idea that they could be rusty from a week off, and all said that despite the loss, confidence hadn't waned and that only a small fix here and there was necessary.

On Thursday, Curry resumed full practice with contact but Kerr wanted to see how Curry responded after consecutive intense days of on-court work before he and the training staff decided when to let Curry return. Without him producing, the Pelicans' window gets smaller and smaller.

However, as the third quarter went on it didn't seem like it was meant to be for the team from the Big Easy. Rondo, meanwhile, leads all players in the playoffs with 13.3 assists per game. Nikola Mirotic isn't far behind. Rondo's magic only lasted a quarter, and AD only looked like AD for that same quarter. Golden State sent an early message and dominated Game 1 in a way that only it can. While nobody saw the sweeping of the Blazers by the Pelicans coming, it was the general consensus that the Pelicans had the pieces to beat the Blazers in a 7-game series.

Golden State gets it. Will they begin to show some weaknesses in their repitoire?
