Three reasons the Golden State Warriors dominated the NOP in game four

Three reasons the Golden State Warriors dominated the NOP in game four

"I've been here before, 3-1".

"I know it sounds insane because you think everybody's going to bring the force every playoff game", says Kerr.

The collapse that Paul is referring to came at the hands of the Rockets.

The Western Conference semifinal rolls on in the city by the bay.

For all the credit Steve Kerr gets as an impeccable motivator, the players are also able to assist in that capacity. He deflected the question with a joke before finally mumbling: 'don't relax, ' before James Harden stepped in to save his teammate from the uncomfortable moment.

This is a lot of points to lay with a Golden State Warriors club that's struggled to cover numbers and hasn't played to its potential consistently as of late. They're hoping Game 5 at Oracle Arena on Tuesday (May 8) will be the first step in overcoming yet another insurmountable obstacle.

He finished with 38 points on 15-of-27 shooting to go with 9 rebounds, and Golden State soundly defeated the Pelicans 118-92 to take a commanding 3-1 series lead back to the West Coast.

"There are different ways to win", said Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni.

"What we saw from him today, that's what we need", Green said.

Apple iPhone X Was The Best Selling Smartphone In Q1 Of 2018
The company has a market cap of $858,015.69, a price-to-earnings ratio of 19.24, a P/E/G ratio of 1.29 and a beta of 1.26. Rather than being a failure, the iPhone X has put Apple into the lead of the new generation of smartphones.

Like I said on Sunday, I'm just not seeing the DFS value from the Jazz side of things.

Utah could get a boost in Game 6 with the return of Ricky Rubio. Instead, the Warriors responded with a resounding effort that produced a wire-to-wire victory with leads as large as 26 points.

Here are three takeaways from Game 4. The Cavs and Celtics both lead their series 3-0. Western Conference and 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games overall. That's one short of the National Basketball Association record of 15 set by the Chicago Bulls from April 27, 1990 to May 21, 1991. If we're ascribing that status to Game 4 - as well you should - then he actually had a great game, which after an up-and-down (see: disengaged) regular season has become the norm this postseason. It's been done before.

"We have to play better than we did in Game 4", Gentry said matter-of-factly.

Curry was on the sidelines for several weeks with an ankle problem but has looked as sharp as ever. That, and solid defense that included Green's block of Rondo's layup, helped Golden State open a 10-point lead in the first four minutes.

Curry is 22 for 51 with 12 3s so far this series.

This comes from the team's meeting with Durant during free agency when the quartet of Curry, Thompson, Green and Iguodala were all present to lure him to Golden State.

The Pelicans found a measure of vindication in Game 3, when the Warriors had an off night shooting and New Orleans won by 19 points. However, it turns out that a text from Draymond Green at 4 a.m. would spark said performance. For one thing, this game was in New Orleans rather than Oakland, so that's presumably an insult to Polk's own state, not the place where Green plays. Anthony Davis had 33 points and 19 rebounds, with 14 points coming in the third.
