Pelicans - Warriors playoff series to start Saturday

Adjust Comment Print

They needed 81 games just to clinch a playoff spot. The time of the game and the rest of the schedule for the series is still to be determined.

The New Orleans Pelicans swept the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs without the injured DeMarcus Cousins, and they have reportedly considered offering the big man a short-term deal instead of a max offer.

His volatility is still very much a factor to rebuilding front offices and only five or six teams have the available max-level cap space to sign him to a deal he deems worthy of his services. "But we have to get ready for the second round".

As ESPN's Zach Lowe puts it, the Pelicans and Cousins could be nearing a divorce.

Golden State now holds a 3-0 series lead over the San Antonio Spurs. The Warriors swept the Pelicans and went on to claim the National Basketball Association title that season.

Ticketmaster sent out an email to users with canceled tickets, citing that the tickets were purchased "with a leaked presale password that was distributed without our consent".

The Pelicans would not be the favorites against Golden State. Before he returns from his injury, it will be impossible to fully understand his value.

The official added that the government will introduce rules to regulate the use of recreational drones. Sunday's strikes are the latest in a series of rebel bombardments on Saudi territory.

The Pelicans say they have not previously had a problem with the improper sharing of promotional codes for ticket sales, but that an "unprecedented demand for playoff tickets resulted in tickets being purchased by non-season ticket or partial season ticket holders". Pelicans center Stretch Armstrong - whoops - Anthony Davis played like the MVP candidate he is, averaging 33 points and pulling in 12 rebounds per game for the series.

Then in Game 4, a determined Davis and Holiday combined for 88 points, with Davis scoring a franchise playoff-record 47 and Holiday capping his 41-point outing with a clutch 3 and 18-foot jumper in the final minutes.

Alvin Gentry earned his way to at least one more season on the New Orleans Pelicans' bench. "They played really well", Portland coach Terry Stotts said. But the password apparently was shared wildly, and people who weren't meant to have access yet to tickets were able to purchase them.

And for Rajon Rondo, in particular, his relationship with coach Gentry is a special one.

"I came here to win a championship". The person says Gentry was informed of the decision before the Pelicans swept their first-round playoff series against third-seeded Portland. "My expectations were high coming in, knowing the talent I was playing with". "This is just one check mark of the bigger goal that we have in mind". "You know, they gathered themselves after a couple of games and got everything back on track".

"He's had it hard". I give him credit for his performance and their team.

Kerr said before Game 5 that Curry is "day to day", but the consensus is that they're not going to rush him back.
