Steve Kerr compares 'Hampton 5' to Jordan-era Bulls

Draymond Green

The Golden State Warriors defeated the New Orleans Pelicans in dominating fashion by a score of 118-92, on Sunday afternoon. The Pelicans held a 54-36 edge in points in the paint in Game 4 as well but their three point shooting, which was good in Game 3 (14 of 31) dried up and blew away.

When the Warriors play small or with Kevon Looney at center, they can switch everything, if they so choose.

Winning was important for the Warriors, but more vital to their long-term outlook in these playoffs is how they won Game 4. So, it's easy to forget how awful their defense was just a few weeks ago. In fact, he's going to roll with it to start Game 5 as the Warriors look to close out the series. The Warriors defensive rating during that stretch was 116.3 - fourth-worst in the National Basketball Association.

Draymond Green is an emotional player. They were all healthy.

"Our security people will be on it", Kerr said Monday afternoon.

Kawakami - the editor-in-chief of The Athletic - is the man who's been credited with creating the nickname and with the Oakland-based outfit set to roll this five out a lot more during the playoffs, we're likely to be hearing it quite often. "But, I had concerns".

China vice premier to visit USA for trade talks
A Reuters report citing sources said China had offered to buy more USA goods and lower tariffs on some goods, including cars.

The Pelicans rank first in points in the paint per game (52.6) while the Warriors rank 23rd (43.4). And if they happen to come back to California for Game 7, they'll address it then.

Now, the Warriors are facing the Pelicans, much younger and faster than the Spurs, and playing a totally different style of offense.

In Game 4, Iguodala drew what was arguably the Warriors' most important defensive assignment: Nikola Mirotic. The Warriors were waiting for them.

"The versatility of that lineup, everybody is a playmaker", Curry said. "And the key is the effort they bring". It kind of reminded me of MJ (Michael Jordan), and I don't like to make that comparison, but he got to his spots and there was nothing you could do about it.

And yet in Game 4, he made next to no impact. They needed to re-establish it, and they did in Game 4. E'Twaun Moore added 20 points, Jrue Holiday put up 19 points and Ian Clark had 11 off the bench. He was really locked in. I thought he was really moving well defensively. Not only was he aggressive, but also efficient, shooting 15-27 from the field. "I think he's on full-tilt all the time", D'Antoni said.

But they knew this series would provide opportunities to go there. Their rotations were great. It was already going to be a stretch considering how good the Jazz are on defense, but combine it with seeing less than projected floor time and you have a real DFS problem. If we're good at something, we're going to stay with it and if anything, we're going to try to ideal it.
