Stephen Curry just wants to 'not suck' when he returns to lineup

All the hype behind the Pelicans came to a screeching halt when the Warriors sonned them in Game 1 without Stephen Curry. (Golden State) can't carry their points over; we don't carry ours over.

Curry has participated fully in four consecutive practices.

The Warriors have taken their defence to another level, led by Durant and Draymond Green - who is coming off a triple-double and has 15, 19 and 18 rebounds in his past three games, respectively. They made just 41 percent of their uncontested shots in Game 1, and that number is bound to improve.

While that specific fear is mitigated, there's still anxiety that Curry can suffer an unrelated injury playing in a game that the Warriors didn't even need him back for. Because of this and Pelicans adjustments, it wouldn't be a surprise to see a much closer Game 2. Although Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have carried the team through their first six playoff games, the Warriors will undoubtedly become a lot more risky upon Curry's return. But instead, I am looking at the over. "We don't know if he's going to play or not, but we obviously are prepared for him to play".

OAKLAND, Calif. - Without setting it in stone, Steve Kerr just about confirmed that Stephen Curry will return from his knee injury to face the... He's a first scorer trapped in a third scorer's body (and spot in the rotation) and is probably good enough to be the second-best scorer on a championship caliber team.

Yes, Curry is important and the Pelicans are a threat, but having the two-time MVP healthy for a potential Western Conference Finals series with the No. 1 seed Rockets is far more important. "Kevin (Durant), Klay (Thompson) - they have to continue to be aggressive and do what they've been doing".

But Scott, who won three National Basketball Association titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, believes the Warriors will be relieved to see Curry back on the court.

Fortunately, just due to the nature of competitive sports, Thompson always has opportunities to remind us of how great he is.

Newsflash: All-Stars, more often than not, play like All-Stars. "The other guys stayed home and took the day off".

The Pelicans saw that the hard way.

It wasn't an accident.
