2018 NBA Playoffs Conf. Semis: Pelicans Vs Warriors Game 1 - Live Scores & Updates

FULL-TIME: Warriors win 123-101. Golden State lead the series 1-0.

Well, that ended quick. Warriors made light work of the Pelicans majorly because of their second quarter, where they outscored the Pelicans 41-21. Klay Thompson had 27, Kevin Durant had 26 but Draymond Green was the game's MVP with 16 points, 15 rebounds, 11 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks in 30 minutes.

Pelicans, riding their momentum from their first-round sweep, would have wanted to perform better than they did. Davis put up 21 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks but all not sufficient to even be competitive. Jrue Holiday had a miserable game with 11 points of 4-of-14 shooting, and Rondo had a near triple-double with 9 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds but again it was insignificant. The team as a whole, wasn't badly on 3's or field goals but they were -15 in the free-throw department.

Expect a stronger game from the Pelicans in Game 2, which is scheduled to be played on Tuesday night (Wednesday morning IST).
