Pelicans hoping to forget Game 1 problems in Game 2

  • Steve Kerr confirmed Steph Curry's availability at the weekend

The defending National Basketball Association champions, coming off of a day of rest from the series against the Spurs, snapped the New Orleans Pelicans' nine-game winning streak in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals on Saturday night in a 123-101 win. This marks Curry's debut after missing the past 5 1/2 weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee. "I don't think one scrimmage is enough, even though he feels great, he wants to play and pleaded his case".

Although he won't have an exact minutes limit to stay under, Kerr indicated that he will not demand an insane workload from Curry in his first game back.

While the team did come out and beat the New Orleans Pelicans in convincing fashion in game one without Curry, the team did the same in game one of the series against San Antonio. "But he puts in the work and prepares himself right when he's put in that position, so when he comes out and he plays well it's not a surprise to me at all". Deep down inside, Thompson has to know that if he had the opportunity to go elsewhere and lead his own team the way that James Harden has, that he'd have the opportunity to leave a legacy much most lasting and impactful than the one he's now working on as the third fiddle behind Durant and Curry.

Curry resumed full-contact practice on Thursday and scrimmaged five-on-five for the first time on Friday. I had one eye on game tape and one eye on Steph. "I've been going against him last couple of days". "The only factor in terms of allowing him to play is health, and he's ready to go". "So we'll try to find that balance between being cautious and letting him go a little bit".

"A big reason why you don't see coaches expand their rotation is because you have to lock in on the defensive end", Guillory said.

"Not at all. Because the flip side of that is he needs rhythm", Kerr said. They were held to 21 and 11 points, respectively, in Game 1. "It's still best-out-of-seven. Our job is to learn from what we messed up tonight and get prepared for Game 2". It is more than him contesting Davis one-on-one defensively, it is Green's ability to help and recover on that side of the court that has Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry trying to formulate wrinkles within their re-jiggered offense. "And that confidence in myself has never wavered".
