Curry Will Return to Starting Lineup in Game 3

Raptors collapse and other NBA podcasts you need to listen today

After coming off the bench in Game 2, Warriors superstar Stephen Curry will return to the starting lineup for Game 3 against the Pelicans, head coach Steve Kerr told 95.

The sixth-seeded Pelicans hope to carry over that home success, which includes two high-decibel first-round wins vs. Portland, into this weekend, when they host No. 2 Golden State in Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday. Here are five things you should be watching for tonight. Just apply the formula for that series to the Warriors' current series against the Pelicans - it's pretty much the same. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 81.4 percent from the free throw line.

Bron has had the upper hand on the Raptors for the past several season, going 8-2 in playoff games against the Raps, including sweeping the Canada residents out of the playoffs previous year. If you answer one question wrong, you are eliminated from the competition. Fans and the media have beaten this drum for the past three days. That is why when you see Curry cutting and flying around screens the plays aren't necessarily designed for him but rather, causing the defense to focus on him thus, creating space for his teammates to go to work. Don't be surprised if New Orleans benefits from a friendlier whistle at home, and the discrepancy dissipates or even reverses itself.

The Pelicans franchise has familiarity being down 2-0 to the Warriors with a Game 3 win at the utmost imperativeness, but not with this group. The Pelicans, once again, must force the pace on both sides of the court. Execute in transition, get shots early in the shot clock, and force the Warriors into early shots or turnovers.

The New Orleans Pelicans need a victory here in order to have any chance of getting back into this series. "I probably would have played and it would have been a dumb decision".

There is some reason for the Pelicans' optimism of stealing a game. Pushing pace doesn't mean forcing bad shots. No more E'Twaun Moore or Holiday out of control dribble drives into trafic resulting in low percentage shots or turnovers.

Even down 2-0, the Pelicans insist that they can play freely. Like Curry showing his talent as showman burirying another deep three with 48 seconds left in the third quarter and struck one of his statue-style poses afterward as the Warriors led 86-80. While HQ Trivia seeks to keep players glued to their mobile screens, Steph IQ urges fans to keep their eyes on live televised games, as the trivia game starts when Curry sinks his first three-pointer.

The first Steph IG session will go down on Friday, May 4th during Game 3. Utah's reserves outscored Houston's 41-22 in Game 2 and that, combined with a 27-point night from Joe Ingles, was enough for the Jazz. Coincidence or not, the Pelicans grew considerably more effective on their home floor after doing that, posting a 12-5 record since mid-February, after starting an inconsistent 14-12.
