The Golden State Warriors don't have a three-headed monster. Curry was out for an MCL injury but will nearly certainly return for Game 2 on Tuesday.

The best-of-seven series resumes with Game 3 on Friday at New Orleans.

"Oh yeah, yeah, yeah". In Game 2, the Warriors dished out 36 dimes to the Pelicans' 33, while Game 1 saw 33 and 24, respectively. Of course, that's not all.

So much for Stephen Curry no longer facing restrictions both with a bench role and minutes. Still, whether or not Curry plays to his best, his return in Game 2 is great news for the Warriors.

Despite the loss, there was some reason for encouragement in the New Orleans camp as it only lost by five points as opposed to 22 points in Game 1.

The Raptors on the other hand beat the Washington Wizards in a closely contested series that ended in six games. On top of his impressive shooting, he also accrued seven rebounds, two assists and three steals.

After steamrolling their way past the Portland Trail Blazers in Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs, the New Orleans Pelicans are finding life to be a little tougher against the reigning champs. He knocked down a 3-pointer from the left wing 11 seconds later and was off and running in Golden State's 121-116 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. He scored 19 points, but shot just 6-of-19 from the floor and 3-of-9 on 3-pointers.

"To prepare for this one, we've got to prepare just like it's our last game".

But despite two days or rest and treatment, coach Brad Stevens said Brown is "very doubtful" for Game 2 on Thursday night. The Pelicans retooled their roster to move faster and be more efficient by pairing Rajon Rondo and Nikola Mirotic with Davis and Jrue Holiday in hopes of avoiding a similar Game 3 collapse. Their matchup went all the way to Game 7, and most of the games were close. He finished with 29 points, many of which were clutch turnaround fade aways to further distance the ravenous Pelicans late in the fourth quarter, keeping them at bay. Can the Warriors put their foot on the throats of the Pelicans with a win here?

Davis averaged over 30 points during that series.

Coincidental to the Pelicans' improvement at home has been the switch they made in the last month - going to the Smoothie King Center for game-day shoot-arounds instead of doing their preps at their training facility in Metairie.

Game two will be played on May 1.
