Stephen Curry is unreal, not fair and downright depressing for NBA fans of the other 29 teams. For the second time this season, he single handedly disposed of the New Orleans Pelicans: 53 points, 9 assists, 4 rebounds, 4 steals and 8 triples. It'll be good New Orleans will not have to face the Warriors until March of 2016 because facing the best shooter in the NBA in 6 of the last 7 games has been demoralizing for the souls of all Pelicans fans!
Anthony Davis led the way with 26 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks. Once again, he got off to a cold start going 2-8 but made his final 6 of 9 and 9-11 from the free throw line.
Holiday played well as evidenced by his 22-point, 6-assist effort, but it was more notable he spent 26:45 of time on the court. So much for the minutes restriction or has it been increased?
Newest new-comer Toney Douglas played 23 minutes and chipped in with 17 points (7-12), 3 rebounds and 4 assists. Conversely, Ish Smith may have slipped behind him on the depth chart as Ish was on the floor for just 11 minutes.
Meanwhile, on the injury front, the Pelicans lost Kendrick Perkins just two minutes into the game.
Fortunately for New Orleans, Omer Asik returned but he was largely ineffective in his 10 minutes.
Stay tuned for nikkoewan's full recap coming up a bit later. With the Warriors in the rear view mirror, maybe the Pelicans will finally have a chance to win a game.
