Whether it's a team meal or maybe a trip to the movies, Anthony Davis expected that New Orleans Pelicans players will do some type of group outing Monday evening in the Bay Area. The only thing more remarkable than the numbers he's put up during that stretch is the fact that he's done it on nearly a nightly basis without a blip.

That's certainly not good news for the Pelicans, as the last three times Curry returned from an injury this season he scored 38, 24 and 29 points in an average of 28.3 minutes in his first game back. The Warriors still have never lost a game in which Green has had a triple-double during the regular season or postseason.

The opening game of the Western Conference semi-finals between the Golden State Warriors and the New Orleans Pelicans went to the dubs in blowout fashion. Durant was assigned to Holiday for much of the night and was able to stop his drives and bother his jumper.

"He's a key part to their team", Davis said of Curry.

"I feel like he's in a pretty good place to come back right now", coach Steve Kerr said, per Chris Haynes of ESPN. But our locker room has confidence that they can get the job done whether I'm out there or not. "I'd be very surprised if he didn't play". He grabbed nine rebounds and dished out eight assists. But he only made four of his 13 shots the rest of the way, and many of those looks were forced and out of the natural flow of the offense.

The win was the Warriors' 25th in their last 27 meetings with the Pelicans, a run that includes a sweep in their first-round playoff matchup in 2015. "If we can clean that up, I think we'll be fine".

"We have a group chat - we call it the discipleship group where we share Bible verses every single day and kind of do a Bible study through text message", Curry shared.

He knows his teammates follow his lead, so he's made a point of getting them together for team functions and nights out on the town during road trips.

Kevin Durant and Draymond Green ignited a brilliant second quarter with their defense and all-out hustle plays, then Golden State got rolling in transition and Oracle Arena started rocking the way it does this time of year. I had one eye on game tape and one eye on Steph.

The Cavaliers barely escaped in seven games against the Indiana Pacers, while the Toronto Raptors needed six to get past the Washington Wizards.

He shouldn't be asked to take any pay cut as far as I'm concerned. "And it's been fun playing with him". Fortunately, they may not have to proceed without him any longer with his probable return for Game 2 of their series with the New Orleans Pelicans.

When Davis speaks, everyone on the Pelicans' roster listens. "So we'll try to find that balance between being cautious and letting him go a little bit".
