When have I gotten into it with Rondo in this series?

The Pelicans took advantage of the Warriors shooting woes on Friday night, scoring a 119-100 win. "He attacked the rim strong tonight".

"That's his game", Rondo said of Green. They also shot more 3-pointers than Golden State (14-9) and outscored the Warriors in the paint (54-36).

"On their home floor, down 2-0, this is what you expect", he said of the intensity the Pelicans displayed from the opening tip-off. "Of course it was a big game for us". After being handled by the Warriors in the first two games of the series on the road, the Pelicans were already being written off by the majority of the media. It looked like the Warriors were going to keep The Brow in check early with AD only scoring three points in the first quarter.

Golden State, on the other hand, was led by star shooting guard Klay Thompson with 26 points.

"Most of it is attributed to the Pelicans". When asked if that's a challenge, he said, "No". "They were the aggressors. We just didn't bring enough force to the game". He's averaging 27.3 points 47.5 percent shooting, 8.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists a game.

"You can't get assists without your teammates. We need to make them guard us". "Guys moved well without the ball", Rondo said.


"I was rushing a little bit and just missed shots", Curry said. I've just got to be involved. "You can't really dwell on anything".

Warriors: Green, who was soundly booed by Pelicans fans, had 11 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Rajon Rondo and Draymond Green have won National Basketball Association titles and never have been known to shy away from conflict on the court. Andre Iguodala and Nick Young, who started games 1 and 2, opened as reserves. Kerr also added lightheartedly that the fact Green hasn't been assessed a technical foul in the postseason is "one of the great stats in this year's playoffs".

Pelicans: Mirotic finished with 16 points and E'Twaun Moore scored 13. New Orleans lost by only five points in Game 2 and then won by 19 when the series shifted to New Orleans. At some point, somebody has got to tell the truth.

Late in the game, it appeared that Rondo tried to trip Green from behind as the forward was walking toward his bench during a timeout. "That does nothing for me", Green said. Once again, when have I went up to him and tried to bait him?

"I don't have to bait Rondo. And I love it - we need that". He's a great a competitor and I love competing against him.

New Orleans seemed to benefit from being back at home and looked to be the more comfortable team shooting from the outset. Their 39 points in the first quarter had the Jazz reeling - which was just what the Rockets had in mind. "Game 2 is always the hardest one after you come back from an injury", Kerr said, adding that "it just takes some time", for National Basketball Association players to regain their energy, legs and rhythm.
