The second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs are now taking place, as teams look to advance to the Conference Finals. "We call a play we like to run just to get some movement, just to get the ball moving, and the ball swung to him and he just launched".
The Pelicans missed the playoffs the next two seasons before making a return to the playoffs this season. With so many talented offensive players on the floor, the box score will inevitably make for great reading, with Curry, Durant, Thompson and Davis all capable of putting up huge points numbers, Rondo and Green dishing out double figure assists every night, and Holiday doing a little bit of everything.
Draymond Green almost notched a triple-double with 20 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds.
A pretty dope way to celebrate a Steph 3-point bomb. So to be able to play through that, to be able to fight for your team and do all that and not complain to the refs, get back, sacrifice yourself.
Update: Dubs lead series 2-0. Then, they went on a 13-5 run to send the game into overtime. Before the big scoring nights by Rozier (29 points), Tatum (28 points) and Horford (26 points), the Celtics hadn't had three players score 25 or more points in a playoff game since 2009.
Well, anything except coming from down 3-0 in a playoff series. "They're not a team that's going to beat themselves". Davis is going to have to carry the team on his back but playing at home, that should work in the Pelicans' favor.
With Chris Paul, 12 year vet point guard and future Hall of Famer on his side, they'll reach the Western Conference Finals, which will be the first time for Paul in his career. The Pelicans were first-round underdogs against the Blazers, only to sweep the series.
He looked good in his return game in 2018 as well.
The Pels gave the Warriors all they had in Game 2, but still came up short in a 121-116 loss at Oracle Arena. It was tied at 108 with 2.8 seconds left in the game.
Curry's Game 2 performance on Tuesday was encouraging. Beating them four times in a row would be darn near impossible.
The Cavs lead the series 1-0. "I probably would have played and it would have been a dumb decision".
Disturbingly for the Raptors and any future Cavaliers opponents, they did it without James shooting especially well by his standards. While the odds are stacked against the Pelicans, as history will tell you, it's not an impossible task to accomplish. Golden State rebounded the shot and fed Curry, who fired again and made the next 3-point prayer. Curry has perfected the pocket pass to a roller on the pick and roll which not only often sets up layups but, if teams help, wide open threes in the corner and a hockey assist for Curry.
The C's have enough to put up an epic fight, but ultimately, the Sixers will "raise the cat" as they win the series.
