Curry ready to return for Warriors vs. Pelicans Game 2

Steph Curry Status Update for Tuesday's Game Two vs. Pelicans

So while the Pelicans' breakneck style mostly worked during the regular season, when they played the league's fastest pace - 102.73 possessions per game, compared to the Warriors' fifth-best mark of 101.5 - Game 1 was a clear sign that it isn't likely to work now.

The Jazz boast the Defensive Player of the Year front-runner in Rudy Gobert and rookie Donovan Mitchell is playing like a multiple-time All-Star. However, Curry's expected return in Tuesday's Game 2 will be a welcome sight as the Warriors look to take control of this series and ultimately repeat as champions. As of Tuesday afternoon, 66 percent of public bets are being placed on host Golden State.

Per usual, the Pelicans assault was led by their superstar Anthony Davis, but the Warriors held him to a less than spectacular 21 points on 45% shooting from the floor. The bottom line of Game 1 is there is no way the Pelicans are going to win a game when Moore is their second-leading scorer, even if he doubled his postseason average with a playoff career-high of 15 points.

"The big thing for the Pelicans is to avoid the mental mistakes that hurt them in that first game", Guillory said.

Kerr said that he kept a close on Curry during the practice, and confirmed with the star afterward that he felt good. And he's ready to go.

It will be interesting to see how Curry fares in his first game back in over a month.

"When you've been out five weeks and you want to play in the playoffs, I don't think one scrimmage is enough". The beauty of Curry, though, is how he fits so seamlessly into the Warriors' offense and typically improves his teammates by his mere presence. Saturday nights game was played at approximately * a href="http://stats.nba.com/teams/advanced/?sort=PACE&dir=-1&CF=MIN*GE*15&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Playoffs&PORound=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *105.96 possessions. Gentry received a technical at the 8:43 mark of the first quarter.

Though the Pelicans were bested by 22 points in Oakland this past Saturday, it does not mean Golden State's victory came with absolute ease. Golden State has won 25 of the last 27 meetings overall vs. the Pelicans. "We can slow it down and we understand to win games we'll have to execute and maybe win some grind-out games, that's just part of playoff basketball, but everybody loves to run". Jay-Z and Beyonce sat courtside.
