Entering their eighth game of this postseason, however - Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal against the New OrleansPelicans - those questions have been answered.
Anthony Davis had 33 points, 18 rebounds and four steals as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated Golden State 119-100 on Friday night to trim the Warriors' series lead to 2-1. "Everybody is really good". It's indeed reasonable to anticipate that playing time will gradually increase, at least depending on how the matchup is harmonizing.
Rondo's mastery allowed Davis to play without the ball more than he did in Games 1 and 2, and he absolutely carved the Warriors up as a dive man, cutter, and off-the-catch attacker.
All of them have had their moments in this series, but some of the most impressive stat lines belong to the likes of Draymond Green and Rajon Rondo.
Rockets guard Eric Gordon had it going off the bench, leading all scorers with 25 points to go with two rebounds. He also played his irritant defense to perfection as he got into it with multiple Pelicans key players and helped fire up the home crowd.
Everything was working for the Pelicans in this one and they're back in the series.
The Pels took control early and took a six-point lead into halftime. The Golden State Warriors have lost five of their last nine road games.
The majority of the second quarter didn't look much better than the first for Golden State.
Green almost finished with a triple double in the loss-posting 11 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists-but he committed seven turnovers and was a minus-25 in 36 minutes.
"We are happy about this game", Nikola Mirotic said. They shot 10-16 from beyond the arc in the first half. If the Raptors are planning on competing in this series they better start now.
The Warriors have been known to erase large deficits in a hurry, but each time they tried to do so in Game 3, the Pelicans responded resoundingly. Stephen Curry returned to the starting lineup with 19 points, although he only made six of his 19 attempts from the floor. But the Pelicans hijacked the Warriors blueprint again, blitzing Golden State with a 30-19 third.
Rondo, who finished with four points and a game-high 21 assists, volleyed the accusation right back. Well, that changed in Game 3 at home. Klay Thompson led their comeback effort, pouring in 20 points in the second quarter alone.
Following Game 3, both Green and Rondo suggested the other was to blame for their repeated confrontations, with the former deploying the third-person to state his case.
