Playoffs: Davis puts Pelicans back in contention

Sunday, 06 May, 2018

The Pelicans, with their backs against the wall, came out swinging and delivered a series of knockout punches in their 119-100, game three win. I'll take a shot with the points here. This is the quandary teams face: They have two players that demand double teams in Curry and Durant, and you can't double them both.

Most of their confrontations have occurred during stoppage of play. "I haven't played him a second in the playoffs based on matchups, but he's been over there".

Rondo claims Green is indeed the instigator. I say I did what I set out to do or I didn't do what I set out to do and, most importantly, to win a basketball game. "I'm just trying to match his intensity".

The Pelicans are shooting the ball well in the postseason as they are hitting 49.5 percent from the field as a team.

As a whole, they didn't play a lot of minutes but what they did, it was uber-efficient.

Rondo has been an irritant for the Warriors over the past two games, and Green has been the main target of some of his antics.

That prompted another face-to-face encounter. So I don't know what crossing the line means. "I'm just not dumb, that's about it". Hopefully they just keep an eye on it. "We had guys out, guys banged up all year", Green said. As much star-power there is on both sides, this series can come down to who can provide the greatest spark off the bench. It also has become routine for opposing players to attempt at denying the free shot. It was none other than Rondo.

"You can't get assists without your teammates", Rondo said.

Insane part about Rondo is he KNEW he was still this player the last few years when people tried to write him off. "Oh, Draymond's doing this". It ain't Draymond this time.

Gentry said Green is playing by the book. But he has change everything about this Pelicans team. "To me, those are the kind of players that I'd like to have on the team". Wherever he's been, he's won.

Green said after Game 3 that he's ready to go as long as Kerr needs him in Game 4 and beyond. "After winning a championship, it's all worth it and I'll have the rest of the summer to recover". And if you're verbally weak, then he's going to take advantage of you. "I do think that".

Roughly five minutes into a choppy opening, Green approached Rondo as the Pelicans guard signaled for a timeout. At some point, somebody's got to tell the truth. Draymond ain't trying to bait nobody. "We need them to be aggressive at all times, and they'll be that way tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow's game". Maybe it won't happen.

"I do expect that".
