Swinging Pelicans blow out Warriors, trim series to 2-1

Rockets blast Jazz on the road, regain series control

Their preferred revved tempo is much more controlled and even more effective. Imagine playing ideal transition defense only for a player to pull up from basically the logo, make the shot and completely eliminate the positive feelings of the work of that defense. "Game 4 will be the toughest game we've ever had".

During each of the Warriors' upcoming playoff games, Steph IQ will go live as soon as Curry drains one from behind the arc. Unfortunately for Holiday, there isn't a human in the world who can stop Curry once he gets his shot going, and all he can do is make it as hard as possible. Toronto missed every three they took in the final four minutes of regulation and in overtime. "You're going to have to make shots".

Gentry and none of the Pelicans smartly didn't want to reveal the exact adjustments made to keep Thompson, Durant and Curry from going off. With AP Photos.Anthony Davis had 33 points, 18 rebounds and four steals, and the New Orleans Pelicans defeated Golden State 119-100 to trim the Warriors' series lead to 2-1.

"It's huge", Jrue Holiday added. When someone is the greatest at something in National Basketball Association history, generally it is a massive asset not only to himself but also to his team and for Curry, his shooting is no different.

The obvious silver lining, from Golden State's standpoint, is that Green has managed to avoid accumulating a single technical foul or flagrant foul during the Warriors' first eight playoff games.

Golden State leads the series 2-1. As for the New Orleans Pelicans, this too has to be their mindset.

Although Durant may be leading in scoring for the postseason, Curry still holds the highest numbers on the team in 3-point field goals made per game.

Up 62-56 at halftime, the Pelicans got off to a hot start in the third quarter and outscored the Rockets 30-19 in that period in order to extend their lead.

UN team shocked at Rohingya plight
Myanmar security forces were accused of rape, murder, torture and setting Rohingya homes on fire. Bangladesh and Myanmar signed an agreement late previous year to return the Muslim refugees.

Curry was brilliant in Game 2, coming off the bench to score 28 points with seven rebounds, three steals and two assists in 27 minutes. That's right, in games against the Warriors. However, New Orleans is now 3-0 SU at home these playoffs and is winning those games by an average of 14.6 points.

With the deficit now down to 2-1 in their best-of-7 Western Conference series, the Pelicans will have a chance to even things up when they host Game 4 on Sunday.

Evans, who still had time to get a potential game-winner up, weaved his way through a couple of defenders and heaved a half-court shot that missed off the back rim.

When Mirotic is connecting, the Pelicans' offense can become lethal.

Royce O' Neale scored 17 points. Holiday's driving lanes became wider than an empty freeway.

Andre Iguodala converted a snazzy three-point play with 6:41 left when he flipped the ball up and it came back down and through the net as he was fouled by Rondo, then Golden State pulled away. He had 21 dimes Friday. "Guys made shots in shootaround this morning and it carried over to the game".

"How many times have I walked up to him?"
