Warriors vs. Pelicans Game 2: Prediction, Odds With Stephen Curry Likely Returning

  • Anthony Davis Stephen Curry

Given how easily the Warriors won that game without Curry, did they consider postponing his return until Game 3 or later, and giving him extra time to rest and strengthen his knee? (Golden State) can't carry their points over; we don't carry ours over.

The over is 4-0 in the last four Pelicans games after allowing 100 or more points in their previous game. Curry averaged 26.4 points, 6.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds in 52 regular season games. "He's feeling good. I'd be very surprised if he didn't play".

New Orleans got off to a hot start in Game 1, taking as much as a 21-16 lead while shooting 60 percent in the first quarter.

If that is any indicator, the New Orleans Pelicans better be ready for a superstar as eager as ever to get back on the court and chase a repeat championship.

On Monday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters that Curry will not be on any sort of minutes restriction upon his return to action. But instead, I am looking at the over.

It's okay if Thompson doesn't have the same desire as Kobe Bryant or Kyrie Irving, it's just something that we should all begin paying close attention to, because anyone who has watched enough of the Warriors over the past two seasons should know that Thompson is essentially the best insurance policy any team could ever have.

Curry's return will require a brief adjustment period as Golden State reincorporates him into the lineup. "If he does, we'll take him out, and we'll figure out when to play him, with whom and what the rotation would look like". Anthony Davis was outplayed by Draymond Green, Jrue Holiday failed to lock down Klay Thompson, and they had no answers for Kevin Durant.

This is great news for the Warriors. "I try to take it and leave it in God's hands", he added.

Newsflash: All-Stars, more often than not, play like All-Stars. "Every game day we probably have 10, 11 guys show up for the 30-minute Bible study, prayer service - daily encouragement that's the biggest thing".

The Pelicans saw that the hard way.

The Warriors are officially listing Curry as probable.

It wasn't an accident.
