The Golden State Warriors continue to show that they can win without Steph Curry. They’ve handed San Antonio a gentlemen’s sweep, and they went into game one against the Pelicans and showed everyone who’s jumped on the New Orleans bandwagon that this series will be nothing like the last. Oh, but that thing about not having Curry is about to end for the Warriors.
Kevin Durant tuned in for 26 points and 13 rebounds while Draymond Green posted a 16 point, 15 rebound, and 11 assist triple-double while the Warriors took game one in dominating fashion. Klay Thompson lead the team in scoring with 27 points. For some reason, the game-to-game narratives in the playoffs seem to take attention off of the defending champions, but with more historic playoff play to come and the return of Steph Curry, all eyes will again be on the Warriors soon enough.
Curry has been out since March 23rd with a left knee sprain. He and head coach Steve Kerr both verbalized that they think the two time MVP is ready to go for game 2. Curry said that it is ultimately up to the medical staff, but all signs point toward his return on Tuesday night.
