Warriors' Stephen Curry still questionable for Game 1

Celtics-76ers: Best Moments From 2002, 2012 Playoff Series (Both Went the Distance)

The Warriors were led by the same players we see today.

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

It's unclear if Curry will play during this series after he missed the first round, although Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced Thursday the two-time NBA MVP is "questionable" for Game 1 on Saturday at Oracle Arena.

Golden State gets it.

The Warriors dominated the Spurs without Steph. Davis is averaging 33 points and 12 rebounds per game through this post-season.

Therefore, Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, Rajon Rondo, Nikola Mirotic and company have their work cut out for them. Davis was essentially the best player in the series looking at his stats.

The new glasses cost $149.99 and are available on Snap's Spectacles website , no pop-up vending machine required. The video recording only lasts for 10 seconds, though extra taps can extend the clip up to 30 seconds.

But for Davis, this is more than an opportunity. "Davis is 6'10" compared to Green's 6'7" and Davis is 20 pounds heavier than Green.

For the Pelicans, it's an opportunity to knock off the defending champs, but it's also a great chance to see where they're at among the NBA's elite. Without Curry, the Warriors' offense runs through Durant, and it has paid off. Durant is averaging 28.2 points per game so far in the playoffs.

Actually beating the Warriors will be easier said than done. However, coach Alvin Gentry looks forward to the matchup.

While Davis hasn't stacked up playoff wins early during his early 20s the way stars like LeBron James and Kevin Durant have in the past, he owns the most important trait all superstars must possess: a lack of fear when adversity presents itself. 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 risky even without DeMarcus. That's pretty much what this series came down to. Thompson and Curry are the best backcourt in the league and maybe of all time. Davis is the highest scorer this postseason and Holiday was a two-way nightmare in outplaying Portland's Damian Lillard. Thompson put up 22.3 points per game and shot 52.9 percent from the field, while Green almost averaged a triple-double with 11.4 points, 11.2 rebounds and eight assists per game.

Though Golden State has more firepower with four All-Stars on their team, New Orléans has talent on its roster as well. The questions about New Orleans do not involve Davis or #PlayoffRondo, but they do center on Holiday and Mirotic.

The Pelicans enter Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal against the Warriors on Saturday believing they can knock off the defending National Basketball Association champions and win the series.
