Steph Curry to return for Game 2 against Pelicans

  • Golden State Warriors Klay Thompson center celebrates after making a 3-point basket next to New Orleans Pelicans Ian Clark right during the first half in Game 1 of an NBA basketball second-round playoff series Saturday

In the first game of this second-round series against New Orleans, the Warriors led by as many as 30 en route to a 123-101 victory.

The bond within the Pelicans' locker room has kept them united through some of the tough times this season, and they'll be leaning on that team chemistry to get them through another tough test in Game 2 on Tuesday (May 1). "We made some stuff up on the fly that kind of got us out of our defensive stuff".

Over the course of the second and third quarters - the equivalent of a half of basketball - Golden State outscored New Orleans 68-40 and limited the Pelicans to 16-for-51 shooting from the field (31.4 percent) and 3 of 10 on 3-pointers.

With Durant needing a new contract this summer and Green only having two more seasons left on his deal, the Warriors will have to make a decision on Thompson and how rich of a deal they'll be willing to dole out to him. We know what we are capable of doing.

In the Western Conference, the Warriors and Rockets remain the top teams to beat in the odds and on the court.

The Golden State Warriors have officially listed Curry as probable to play in game 2 against the New Orleans Pelicans.


Head coach Steve Kerr explained that despite Curry's lengthy absence, he will not be putting any minutes restrictions on the superstar point guard. "I feel like a fan, I can't wait to see him out there", Thompson told the media about Curry's return to the court. But for Davis, he walked away feeling like he needed to give his team more. But it doesn't change anything we are trying to do.

"It's been interesting. Obviously when I'm out there I've been playing well, playing at a very high level, we've been winning", Curry said.

"The only factor in terms of allowing him to play is his health". Curry had been previously ruled as questionable to play in game 1 but was ultimately held out of the lineup.

That time together was meant to prepare the team for moments like this, and he hopes it will be the reason they bounce back from such an ugly performance. "We've been playing great". We watched (the film) twice actually and a lot of the things that happened in the game were self-inflicted.

"He loves the game just as much as anybody I ever been around and I know he wants to play". "It's still best-out-of-seven. Our job is to learn from what we messed up tonight and get prepared for Game 2".
