Dubs have Pelicans flying scared

The Warriors are 12 minutes away from a sweep. Stephen Curry has 27 points (5-for-6 from 3) and may not even make it back in the fourth as Golden State's 21-13 third quarter has given the Warriors a 21-point lead. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Eleven 3s in 18 tries. A 20-zip edge in fast-break points. And only five turnovers. The 67-win Warriors have arrived in New Orleans

Warriors go for the knockout

The No. 1 team in defensive efficiency has put the clamps down. The Warriors have allowed only 8 New Orleans points in the third quarter as the Dubs have used a 16-2 run to push their lead up to 21 midway through the 3rd. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Beno likely out for Game 3

Memphis G Beno Udrih (ankle sprain) told reporters pregame he'll likely sit for Game 3 in Portland and prepare for Game 4. Udrih said returning in Game 2 hurt his recovery. Udrih is averaging 15 PPG, 4 RPG and 4 APG in the playoffs.

Gordon's high-glass hoop plus the harm

Eric Gordon's layup nearly hit the top of the backboard before rolling into the hoop against the Warriors. EJ is tied for a team-high 19 points but the Pelicans trail by 13 at the half.

Jimmy Butler was drafted 30th. Draymond Green was picked 35th. Paul Millsap chosen 47th. So much about fit and opportunity.

Draymond Green just sank his 18th point in the half. That's the most in a half for Green this season. It's a good time for it as Golden State is up 13 late in the 2nd trying to eliminate New Orleans from the playoffs. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN
