The Warriors' coach said Curry is completely healed and will return to the starting lineup Friday for Game 3 in New Orleans. Seeing the stats that Anthony Davis has been putting up, Steve Kerr has to know that the Warriors have to have an answer in the paint to avoid a 30+ point game for Davis. A series win against Golden State is highly unlikely. Anthony Davis had 25 points, 15 rebounds, five assists and three blocks for the Pelicans, but it still wasn't enough against the star-studded Warriors.
Curry, who had barely recovered from a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee on March 23, burned the hoop with 28 points and seven rebounds, coming off the bench with 4:20 left in the first quarter, amidst deafening roar from the standing room only crowd at the Oracle Arena.
"When guys have confidence in each other, it allows them, I think, the confidence individually to step up", Snyder said.
Many of these players are elite defensively, too, but good offense trumps good defense, and expect that to be the case once again in this game.More news: Ichiro Suzuki joining Mariners' front office
Curry was only bested by Kevin Durant's 29 points in 41:18 of playing time.
After a series of peaks (for instance, leading the National Basketball Association in three-point percentage in December) and valleys (placing 28th in January), the New Orleans Pelicans settled in as a middle-of-the-pack team from beyond the arc in 2017-18, with a rate of 36.2 percent, good for 13th in the league.

Green drove coast to coast for a three-point play 2:08 before halftime, then Thompson banked in a 3 at the halftime buzzer for a 58-55 Warriors edge at intermission. More importantly, he only shot 2-of-10 from three-point territory.

The first Steph IG session will go down on Friday, May 4th during Game 3. It's a high total but given the way both teams score and how they are lackadaisical defensively, this one could go over as well. New Orleans returns home for this one and they have to hope that their pace takes a toll on the Warriors. The Pelicans are hitting 78.5 percent at the line as a team so far. The game starts at 7:00 central.
