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

I wasn't aggressive in game three and I knew that. "To start like that sets a great tone".

In the game prior, the Warriors came out flat and found themselves defeated by the Pelicans, preventing a sweep from occurring. So much that Curry and Durant both argued how the switch tapped into the team's versatility with their scoring and playmaking.

"There's a good chance I'll start these same five guys on Tuesday", Kerr says.

Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday believes Kevin Durant was the difference-maker in the game, as he's nearly unstoppable on the offensive ends of the floor. But really, don't we all?

Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic scored seven points on 1-of-7 shooting.

Chris Paul had 27 points, 12 rebounds and six assists for the Rockets.

Kerr has always preferred to save the group for crunchtime as opposed to first quarters - even in the days when it was Harrison Barnes in Durant's place.

The lineup posted a plus-minus rating of +12, a statistic that measures their impact on the floor.

He told the Today programme: 'Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at Bastion'. This means the city has a higher murder rate than NY , which had 21 deaths in comparison, where handguns are legal.

Anthony Davis has been anything but a disappointment for New Orleans.

After holding a 61-54 half-time lead, the Warriors opened the third quarter with a 10-2 lead.

Pelicans star Anthony Davis put up 26 points and 12 rebounds and was a ideal 10 for 10 from the free-throw line. I think Holiday continues to shine as he has proven to be a matchup problem for the Warriors. Toronto ran a mind-boggling inbounds play in the final minute of Game 3 with guard Fred VanVleet hoisting and missing a 35-foot jumper before the shot clock expired. "It's not anything new", Gentry said.

Durant appeared to be a lot more engaged in Game 4 after a lackluster performance Friday.

It might be a surprise, though, that the Warriors did not succeed with the lineup this season. Toronto, the team that finished with the NBA's second-best regular season record, sought a spark by changing its starting five against the Cavs for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. That's the impact he has when he's playing aggressive out there for us.

It was a loud reminder to the rest of the league that the reigning champs are still as dominant as ever, and they still have potential to grow as Stephen Curry continues his recovery from a sprained left MCL they held him out for 16 games. "In the playoffs you have to switch the lineup to match up with teams". Considering the Warriors have won 14 straight postseason games, Cook could see extended minutes if this game gets out of hand.

"It's a long lineup that affords them the opportunity to switch and try to disrupt offenses, and we've got to do a better job of making sure that we're attacking".
