    Pelicans vs Warriors on Saturday. Still waiting for the other matchups to unfold. Philly-Boston? Toronto-Cleveland? Houston-Utah? Time will tell.

    Unfortunately, I predict this will be short and not sweet for the Pelicans. They are a one trick team that had the magic formula to neutralize Dame and slay the Blazers. As good as AD is, I doubt he gets much help in this one. Holiday is bound to regress to norm with Klay draped all over him, and Mirotic will find Green to be tougher than what the Blazers threw at him. It will be interesting to see how the Pelicans approach defending Durant. Put AD on him and leave the paint unprotected? Doesn’t sound like a recipe for success to me.

    The Davis/Mirotic front court killed us, but against the Warriors, I don't see it working. Durant will kill them.

    We do. Dame cuts and Nurk passes it to him for the easy layup.

    Interesting. Warriors started Nick Young instead of McGee and they're putting Durant on Holiday, not Davis.

    Considering Nurkic gets around 2 assists a game, it's not often enough.

    That Rondo alley-oop for the Davis dunk was nasty!

    What happened to 2017 Nurkic? He averaged near 4 assists per game.

    A sweep of the Dubs would make the Blazer loss easier to handle.

    What are you talking about? He averaged the near 4 assists with Stotts coaching him! Stotts coached Nurk to his best game ever: 28/20/8/6 vs Philly.

    He had just started playing under Stotts, so Stotts hadn't molded him as a player yet.
