Warriors find winning not easy in New Orleans

"We're back at home and you always shoot better at home", Davis said.

Anthony Davis finally won a playoff game against the Golden State Warriors. But Golden State had several major advantages on paper, and one of them was the two benches.

The Golden State Warriors can retake full control of this series with a victory here and improving to a 3-1 lead.

"They're a scary team", Gentry said of the Warriors. "Guys made shots in shootaround this morning and it carried over to the game". It's not just that their shooters were off, although they were. Stephen Curry returned to the starting lineup with 19 points, although he only made six of his 19 attempts from the floor. "Guys made shots, we got to the free-throw line today and we capitalized at the line and when we're making shots and playing great defensively and holding our opponents to 100, we can score 125 every night".

The Pelicans will absolutely be hoping for a more favorable referee call after getting the short end of it in Oakland.

Thompson scored eight more and finished with 20 second-quarter points as Golden State cut the New Orleans lead to 62-56 at halftime.

The Pelicans proved Friday they aren't going to lay down and die for the Warriors. The Pelicans did a good job of giving whoever Curry was guarding the ball then using Davis to set picks, so there could be no switch. The Warriors never led by more than a single point and trailed by double digits for nearly the entire second half, going down by 25 points in the third quarter and 26 in the fourth. "Of course we didn't want to go down 0-3 but we got our big one tonight and now we'll try to get ready for Sunday".

"Most of it is attributed the Pelicans".

After struggling in the first quarter the Warriors started to heat up, specifically Klay Thompson as he recorded 20 points in the quarter.

One of the most promising parts of a disappointing loss on Tuesday for the Pelicans was the notable way the controled the pace of play through most of the game. They were above 30 for most of the campaign, until a late-season swoon. "We have to be physical and match that physicality".

Following Game 3, both Green and Rondo suggested the other was to blame for their repeated confrontations, with the former deploying the third-person to state his case.

The tenor of Game 3 was radically different from the first two games of the series. Despite that, Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said he was "never comfortable" because of how "scary" the Warriors are.
