I doubt I am the only one shocked at the developments in this series. Golden State looks equal parts flat, annoyed, and distracted throughout games two and three. Draymond Green has disappeared. Role player suddenly can't knock down open shots, and in some cases are turning them down altogether.

In New Orleans Pelicans interests, the quicker this series end, the sooner Alvin Gentry gets to work in the Crescent City. Wouldn't it be great if Anthony Davis and Gentry could have as much time as possible to chat before the five year, $140+ Million contract offer hits AD's agent's desk?
