Basketball: Warriors eliminate Pelicans in Game 5

Basketball: Warriors eliminate Pelicans in Game 5

The Golden State Warriors will face the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals in the next few days, but this time, Curry and company will start on the road.

That's exactly what happened Tuesday night, as the Pelicans' feel-good season came to an end in a 113-104 defeat.

Draymond Green may have finished the 113-104 drubbing of the New Orleans Pelicans just one assist shy of a triple-double, but that was good enough for the Golden State Warriors' Swiss army knife to lock up an elusive franchise record as the first player in Warriors history to average a triple-double in an National Basketball Association playoff series.

"We feel like we can play against them". The Warriors steamrolled NOLA in Game 1 without Curry, and the two-time MVP's return in Game 2 gave Golden State a commanding 2-0 series lead. Despite 34 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks from Anthony Davis in his best game of the series, the Big 4 were too much for the Pellies. Davis led the Pelicans to the Western Conference semifinals, despite the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to a season ending torn Achilles tendon three months ago. The stage is now set for the Warriors to earn their fourth straight NBA Finals appearance.

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson also went for 20 plus points. A series win over the Rockets would make them a heavy favorite to win their third National Basketball Association championship in four seasons. Coincidentally, this feat was achieved at the expense of the Houston Rockets, their upcoming Conference Finals opponent.
