Billy Donovan, head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder, knew his team had to generate points in a hurry if they want to win Game 3. He was right. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook deferred to their teammates and they won in a blow-out. The Golden State Warriors should be concerned about this loss, although history shows that when they face adversity last year being down 2-1 against Cleveland and Memphis last year in the 2015 NBA playoffs they usually come up with future series wins. Let’s see if the Dubs can repeat that feat this year.
The New Orleans Pelicans face the Golden State Warriors, the basketball squad coached by first timer Steve Kerr. What becomes of the behemoth that Kerr has gotten here to the first round of the playoffs? Can Stephen Curry help these Warriors get to the Finals and eventually the NBA title? We’d like to see that. We also can’t rule out Anthony Davis and these Pelicans. Davis will make Andrew Bogut work, because he is more athletic, faster, and agile than Bogut is.
