Pelicans, Rockets net Game 3 National Basketball Association playoff wins

Joe Ingles & Dante Exum Star In Huge Playoff Upset

The Pelicans still went to the locker room leading 62-56, though.

The New Orleans Pelicans took it to the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their playoff series on Friday night with a 119-100 win.

"He's as hard-headed as they are", said Pelicans' coach Alvin Gentry about Rondo. If it wasn't for a 20-point second quarter by Klay Thompson the hole would have been a lot deeper than six points for the Warriors at halftime. Curry dropped a cool 28 points in his first game since March 23.

The game commences at 1am United Kingdom time Saturday, together with policy on BT activity starting up at mid night.

Anthony Davis scored 25 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, and swiped 3 steals through three quarters. "Our mindset was to follow the game plan and whatever happens happens". We followed the game plan to a T tonight. In the first, the Pelicans got back into their series with the Warriors.

"They brought more force, more intensity to the game than we did", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. "Their defense was great, they were the aggressors".

"On their home floor, down 2-0, this is what you expect", Kerr said of the Pelicans' intensity. Both the Warriors and Pelicans like to play at a fast pace, which in turn means more possessions and more opportunities for absolute brilliant play from these players, who coincidentally each have an additional talent of getting under their opponent's skin. Holiday's driving lanes became wider than an empty freeway. Excuse me? Did you say 21 assists? "Guys made shots in shootaround this morning and it carried over to the game". New Orleans outrebounded the Warriors 54 to 44 and finished with a 19-12 advantage in second-chance points.

"It seemed like everybody on their side was in a flow and he (Clark) fell right into it", Curry said of his former Golden State teammate from the last two seasons. With proven vets Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and David West, the Warriors can turn to a wealth of experience. The Warriors are coming off their second loss of the postseason, and a win on Sunday would put them one victory away from reaching the Western Conference Finals for the fourth straight season.

Thompson, Kevin Durant and Curry led Golden State with 26, 22 and 19 points, but none of the trio shot 50 percent or better and were a combined 7-of-24 in 3-pointers.

The Pelicans found out early on Gentry's prediction would come to fruition. It's a factor that may have even had an affect on Golden State's starting lineup, that surprisingly featured JaVale McGee - who played just six in the first two games combined - starting on Anthony Davis.

The Jazz stole Game 2 in Houston, which was pretty cool for them.

The New Orleans guard appeared to attempt stomping on the foot of the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year as he made his way to the bench. Andre Iguodala and Nick Young, who started games 1 and 2, opened as reserves. "You're going to have to make shots". They can erase a 15-point deficit in no time or take a 1-point game and turn it into a double-digit margin.

The Pels aren't looking past Sunday.

"I don't think anything he does crosses the line because - he's the flawless guy because if he's on your team you love him, and if he's not on your team you despise him", said Gentry.
