In what is described as a "long-a** text message" by ESPN, Green urged Durant to be more aggressive and pull himself out of his funk.

"You're on the road, you're threatened, you put your best five guys out there", Kerr added. "To start like that sets a great tone". Green moved to center after starting at forward in Game 3, 7-foot center JaVale McGee returned to a reserve role and Iguodala, who started games 1 and 2, returned to the first unit at forward.

"I think we believe, regardless of the situation or what people will say", Rajon Rondo said.

Gentry believes his team is capable of reclaiming its rhythm on the offensive end, Once it does, it can successfully execute some of the tactics used to almost pull off the upset when the Pelicans lost at Golden State, 121-116, in Game 2. "It really showed up for us". He later deleted the tweet and apologized, calling it an "edgy joke". The Warriors gave up only 92 points in Game 4 to the Pelicans, who averaged 113.5 points at home during the regular season.

Green got so upset that he made a decision to text Kevin Durant, who scored just 22 points on 8-of-18 shooting in the 19-point loss. That empowered Iguodala to hit the open man, such as when he passed up an open 3-pointer so that Curry could bury one instead.

However, they could be without reserve point guard Dante Exum in Game 6 after he left Sunday's game in the third quarter with soreness in his left hamstring.

White House says Trump will not attend Jerusalem embassy opening
Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its "eternal and undivided" capital which it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War in 1967. "By recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the seat of its government, we're recognizing reality", U.S.

The lineup posted a plus-minus rating of +12, a statistic that measures their impact on the floor. He's going against Anthony Davis night after night and just doing an unbelievable job in concert with his teammates.

"I thought it was important", Gentry said of a chance to recuperate Monday. Those little tweaks could play enough of a difference to return the series back to New Orleans. They simply had an off night, it happens. "It wasn't a surprise".

The Warriors have always had a keen understanding of just how risky their small lineup can be. He was changing the game.

"We got a lot of stuff we can go to".

You can praise their "Hampton's Five" lineup all you want, but no matter what combination of players they had on the court, they were more successful on both ends of the floor.

Not only did Kevin Durant look unstoppable as he was leaned on to score, but the team's "Death Lineup" - or "Hamptons Five", referring to Durant hosting free agent pitches in the Hamptons in the summer of 2016 - fired on all cylinders. "He's that steady force for us, and when he's out there with that small lineup, you got three guys running around like insane... and then he's there calming us down".
