Jrue's problem was he only played 40 games during the regular season.

NOP: Alexis Ajinca (right knee injury), DeMarcus Cousins (left achilles rupture) and Frank Jackson (right foot fracture) are out.

The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six Saturday games.

If he still isn't back by Game 2, that lengthy hiatus between Games 2 and 3 would nearly definitely give Curry the extra time he needs to get into game shape and go through more contact practices.

While describing what it's like playing against another team that likes to get up and down the floor, New Orleans star Anthony Davis set the tone for the rest of the series with his response.

Davis will surely see a variety of looks from Golden State's defense as the defending champions try to limit his impact. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr called Curry questionable for Saturday's Game 1, so it looks like the two-time MVP will either be ready to go for Game 1 or Game 2.

The New Orleans Pelicans, though, were the most impressive team in the first round, as the only team to sweep its series. He is looking forward to the challenge that Golden State still provides. As of Saturday morning, 55 percent of public bets have sided with visiting New Orleans. Even Draymond Green, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, isn't a good match-up to guard Davis.

The companies' statements came as interest rates kept rising, which makes it more expensive for companies to borrow money. Google's parent company benefited from strong digital ad sales as well as an accounting change.

One big reason why was Kevin Durant's slump from deep. While Cousins' injury sadly diminishes the ceiling outcome for this Pelicans team, their play in the first round shows that they can still be quite unsafe even without DeMarcus.

With two essentially unstoppable forces on both teams in Davis and Durant, this series will come down to backcourt play. The playoff version of Rajon Rondo is a wild card. Thompson and Curry are the best backcourt in the league and maybe of all time. Davis was a beast against Portland but he'll find the going tougher in this series against a rotating crew of defenders.

Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors shows off his championship ring before their game against the Houston Rockets at ORACLE Arena on October 17, 2017 in Oakland, California.

Though Golden State has more firepower with four All-Stars on their team, New Orléans has talent on its roster as well.

So what do the Pelicans expect from Davis as he plays in the second round for the first time in his career? Rondo, meanwhile, leads all players in the playoffs with 13.3 assists per game.

The Warriors scored, on average, eight more points per game than the Pelicans during the series.
