"I'm looking forward to the opportunity for us to go start a series somewhere else and not so much where we're at home, like you said, protecting, just trying not to give up a game".

"They got us. We got them", Green said. "Timing could still get a little bit better with the ball and things like that when you start to get so excited, still when I'm out there missing six weeks is still appreciative of being out there playing. And if he has that look in his eyes, he's a problem".

After a convincing 113-104 Game 5 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday at Oracle Arena, the reigning National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors look primed to sweep the Houston Rockets come time for the Western Conference Finals. The point guard has been panned for failing to get past the second round in his nine previous trips to the postseason. "He does it every night, but taking over the way he did was very impressive". He was also sidelined for the first 13 games of the season following core muscle surgery. "In that fourth quarter, he just took over". But we're not about to run around like, 'Yeah, we want to play them in the conference finals.' For what?

The New Orleans Pelicans are on to next season.

Curry, who returned for Game 2 after almost six weeks out with a knee injury, knocked down an open 3-pointer midway through the third and raised his hands to get the crowd going, then made another less than two minutes later.

The Rockets were able to close out the series despite Harden, the front-runner for MVP, being under the weather.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Kerr and Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni are two of his best friends, so he refused to pick a victor, but he did say that we're all in for a treat. Curry reiterated that point shortly afterwards to reporters, though he conceded "it's hard to say" when the left knee will feel 100 percent.


"Whatever it took to win", Paul said. "We were just a shell of ourselves that last week".

While Rockets center Clint Capela looks like an All-Star of late, the fact remains that the Warriors have four actual All-Stars (Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green) while the Rockets have two (Chris Paul and James Harden). "They're going to be a tough matchup".

"We do have guys that are playing heavy minutes", he explained.

On Tuesday night, they outscored the Pelicans 36-19 in the third period.

"We just advanced in another series which is an accomplishment, but that's not our main goal", Trevor Ariza said.

Golden State got away with one in Game 5 in the conference finals against a streaky Rockets' outfit they may not be so lucky. For the Pelicans, the loss ends what will go down as one of the most successful seasons in franchise history. "So you know, I try not to look at those games but we kind of know, they know what we do and they know what we do".
