On the other side of the court, the Pelicans - who took the No. 6 seed, thanks to a 48-34 streak - they were the first ball club to secure a ticket to the second round, sweeping the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2018 NBA Playoffs opener.
Curry being back also makes things exponentially harder for any team in the National Basketball Association to win four of seven games in a series due to the sheer talent of Curry, Durant, Green and Thompson. "We got a lot of open looks and really good opportunities (in the first two games) - we just need to capitalize on them tonight".
The Pelicans missed the playoffs the next two seasons before making a return to the playoffs this season.
Klay Thompson never found his groove and went 4 for 20, 2 of 11 on 3s, and scored 10 points. The basket was his first attempt after returning from an injury. However, teams are starting to get a little healthier.
Update: Dubs lead series 2-0. Then, they went on a 13-5 run to send the game into overtime.
If James's much reviled supporting cast starts consistently contributing like that, the East may be there for the taking again. Green also played his irritant role perfectly as he got into it with multiple Pelicans and helped fire up the home crowd.
In the United States' three major professional sports that use the best-of-seven format, only five times has a team rallied from the 3-0 trench to win a series.

Game two will be played on May 1. It allows teammates to look for a great shot as opposed to a good one because even Curry will or, to compete on the defensive end because despite lacking raw skill on that end, he will still find a way to be disruptive and continue to work.
Bron has had the upper hand on the Raptors for the past several season, going 8-2 in playoff games against the Raps, including sweeping the Canada residents out of the playoffs a year ago. Klay Thompson will nearly certainly improve on the four-of-20 shooting performance he had in Game 2. Beating them four times in a row would be darn near impossible.
The Cavs lead the series 1-0.
I loved the pace of play in Game 2.
Philly may very well have the most dominant point guard and center combination with Simmons and Embiid. While the odds are stacked against the Pelicans, as history will tell you, it's not an impossible task to accomplish.
Also, in the Eastern Conference, Boston Celtics will face Philadelphia 76ers. Can the Warriors put their foot on the throats of the Pelicans with a win here?
