Stephen Curry Will Make Postseason Debut Tonight Against Pelicans

Stephen Curry Will Make Postseason Debut Tonight Against Pelicans

Per usual, the Pelicans assault was led by their superstar Anthony Davis, but the Warriors held him to a less than spectacular 21 points on 45% shooting from the floor.

If Curry is anything less than 100 percent, he should be sidelined.

Luckily, being smart has never been much of an issue for these Warriors. Though he played in only 51 games, he's a strong contender to qualify for one of the six All-NBA guard spots.

The Spurs deserve credit for that, but the Warriors' offense certainly contributed to its own poor performances with turnovers, poor ball movement and a general lack of verve.

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.

Time for the Pelicans to adjust - After feeling all good about themselves with their sweep of the Trail Blazers, the Pelicans were given a cold dose of reality by the Warriors despite Curry's absence. It's a much better answer than 'my knee still hurts'. In all likelihood the team will be matched up against the Houston Rockets and likely MVP, James Harden, in the conference finals.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's Game 2 against the New Orleans Pelicans at Oracle Arena.

Davis: "We've just got to play one game at a time".

Curry, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, has not played since spraining a ligament in his right knee on March 23 in the closing weeks of the regular season.

The over is 4-0 in the last four Pelicans games after allowing 100 or more points in their previous game.

So, it really seems like Curry will play on Tuesday but will his minutes be restricted?

The Warriors are in wait-and-see mode on that.

"He needs rhythm", Kerr said.

After Curry sat out Game 1 of the Warriors second round playoff matchup with the Pelicans, he told reporters afterward that he felt good enough to play 20 minutes in Game 1. "If you can think of any adjustments the Pelicans can make to tighten Game 2 and turn this into a series that goes more than five games, both I and Pellies coach Alvin Gentry are all ears".
