NEW ORLEANS, LA
In game 3, the Pelicans looked like they’d found a way to beat Golden State, or at least make the series competitive. If that was what New Orleans was thinking after their game-3 victory, the Warriors quickly crushed those dreams with a blowout win in game-4. Golden State made it their business to show the Pelicans that they are not in the same weight class as the big boys. Golden State now leads their series over New Orleans 3-1. Houston leads their series over Utah 3-1. Cleveland leads their series over the Raptors 3-1. And Boston leads their series over Philly 3-1. If things continue to play out in the way they’re currently going, we will see the final four that we all expected at the beginning of the season…..won’t we? I mean, we all had hopes and dreams for our teams, but in reality we all knew it was coming down to this. Houston-Golden State in the West. And Cleveland-Boston in the East.
Golden State took control of yesterday’s game early, and never really looked to be in trouble…..to me. It’s hard to beat this Golden State team once. Asking a team to beat the Warriors four games out of seven will be a tough task for any team in the NBA. The Pelicans tried though. Jrue Holiday had another solid outing on his way to a 19 pts. 7 reb. performance. Anthony Davis dropped 26 pts and 12 rebounds. And Etwaun Moore added 20 pts. for the Pelicans. The Warriors were led by all star Forward Kevin Durant who had 38 pts, and 9 reb. Steph Curry scored 23 points. And Draymond Green damn near dropped a triple double (8pts. 9ast. 9reb.).
