Fresh off a 99-91 win over the San Antonio Spurs to end the previous round, the Warriors will attempt to hold it down for Oakland at Oracle Arena against the likes of The Brow. They play similar to us as far as spreading the court and you've got playmakers everywhere. Durant made only 25 percent of his triples on eight attempts per game after making almost 42 percent of his 3-point attempts in the regular season. "And we've been in every game that we lost, so we know that we're a good matchup against these guys and we've got a lot of confidence in ourselves", Davis told Nick Friedell of ESPN.
GSW: Stephen Curry (left MCL sprain) is considered questionable.
But, Davis has no plans of backing down and is optimistic. He has averaged 15.1 points and 8.4 rebounds in the 34 overall games he has played with the Hornets since being acquired from the Chicago Bulls, but Mirotic has only made 35 percent of his 3-point shots. When asked what he expected to see from Davis in this series, teammate Jrue Holiday responded with a confident answer. My former Sixers Iguodala and Holiday didn't play all that well during the series. "The Pelicans start E'Twaun Moore at small forward and he's only 6'4". Like Davis, he believes that the young group is ready for prime time. Prove to the Pelicans right off the bat that while they may have matched up well against the Blazers, Golden State is on a much higher level entirely. "In the second round against a team like New Orleans, you've got to be into all of that".

Despite the bipartisan vote, there's still no clear passage for the legislation to move forward beyond the Judiciary Committee. Trump has reportedly mused about firing Mueller and has tweeted that he is "conflicted" in his role as special counsel.
If he still isn't back by Game 2, that lengthy hiatus between Games 2 and 3 would nearly definitely give Curry the extra time he needs to get into game shape and go through more contact practices. "But it's a great opportunity for everybody to add to their resume, to try to go out here and beat the world champs". Golden State, they weren't sure exactly how many days they needed to pack for on their trip to the Bay Area.
Golden State opened as a 7.5-point favorite and is now laying 9.
"At some stage, he'll play", Gentry said. "But we also know that we can compete against them, and that's our goal, is we've got to understand that and have the confidence to go out and do that".
"It's good to be back here", Gentry said.
