"We're going to need it even more for Game 5", Durant said. "That's when I'm free and having fun out there, and forceful".

"Just find ways to get him in scoring positions", Curry said.

Kevin Durant's 38 points pushes the Golden State Warriors on the brink of returning to the Western Conference finals.

Kevin Durant scored 38 points to power the reigning National Basketball Association champion Warriors over the New Orleans Pelicans 118-92 and Chris Paul finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds as the Rockets defeated the Utah Jazz 100-87. "The way we live now, we immediately express those thoughts into the world for everybody to see".

The Boston Celtics have a chance to close the series out on Monday, but the Philadelphia 76ers have been in each of the last two games, they were just unable to close it out late.

"KD ... he was just KD", Iguodala said when asked what led to the Warriors' explosive start. The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 110.8 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 110.5 points on 45.4 percent shooting. He also had nine rebounds and five assists. After a first-half barrage of 10 3-pointers, New Orleans abused Golden State inside in the third period. I think we played off each other well.

Kawakami - the editor-in-chief of The Athletic - is the man who's been credited with creating the nickname and with the Oakland-based outfit set to roll this five out a lot more during the playoffs, we're likely to be hearing it quite often. He had six points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block.

In the game prior, the Warriors came out flat and found themselves defeated by the Pelicans, preventing a sweep from occurring.

"We don't have the ability to all of a sudden change that and become a walk-it-up-the-court team", Gentry continued. "We just can't afford to shoot that poorly".

After shooting poorly Friday night, the Warriors were eager to regain their rhythm and did so immediately.

Holiday missed his first two shots with Durant guarding him.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who was Gentry's boss back in 2015, doesn't see the Pelicans' refusal to slow the pace as stubborn. "He found better spots on the floor with his aggression and created easier shots for himself". Curry scored eight in the quarter and added four in the second in 7:36 of action.

Rondo admitted that most of the team was very frustrated with their performance in Game 4, especially on the defensive end of the floor. "We have to play better on (Golden State's) homecourt (compared to Game 1 and 2)". Curry, Thompson and Durant rounded out the starting five. "Whether it's as the starting group or extra minutes, and obviously the lineup worked".

Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday believes Kevin Durant was the difference-maker in the game, as he's nearly unstoppable on the offensive ends of the floor. We'll play much better and we'll take away some of the things that they do and we'll be better at executing down the stretch and finishing games.
