Warriors vs. Pelicans: Stephen Curry 'P----- Off' During Game 4 Win

Durant got the message, scoring a game-high 38 points in a 118-92 Game 4 win Monday to put Golden State up 3-1 in the series. By unleashing Durant in Game 4, however, Golden State sharpened a weapon they may have to break out later on when their preferred offensive approach isn't working. Quinn Cook came to play and looked like the confident scorer that emerged in Stephen Curry's absence late in the regular season; he had 12 points in 17 minutes off the bench after getting nearly no minutes for the entire series, as Kerr opted to put in Nick Young in the first three games, to no avail.

That's something that the Rockets, who made more 3-pointers than any team in history with 1,256 this season, can clearly do as we look ahead to a potential Houston-Golden State Western Conference finals showdown.

Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals between the Warriors and the Pelicans will be on Tuesday night at the Oracle Arena in California.

"You're not going to beat them if you can't score 115 points", says Gentry.

"Every time I get subbed off, I get a little p-- off".

This is not to make light work of the Pelicans, who have certainly been a hard opponent.

For all but a few minutes late in the second quarter when the Pelicans were able to draw within single digits, the Warriors were in control.

"We missed a lot of easy shots, a couple game-plan discipline mistakes early on and they came out on fire", Davis said.

Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic scored seven points on one-of-seven shooting. They hit six of their first eight shots, with Durant making his first three. "I wish no harm to anyone over a simple game, and I apologize sincerely". He took advantage of Jrue Holiday and E'Twuan Moore, the undersized players who were tasked with guarding a hungry Durant. Again, the key to keeping up with a 2-point heavy Warriors attack is countering with your own triples to shrink the gap.

Kerr went with a different starting lineup for a third consecutive game. "As a frustrated basketball fan, I go through ups and downs, and as a comedian, I don't always express those in a digestible way".
