Stephen Curry To Start Game 3 Against Pelicans

Trending today on KRON4 Morning Buzz is the Warriors looking to take a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Semifinals.

The popular opinion is that Golden State can just outshoot their opponents.

The Jazz stole Game 2 in Houston and now look to take a 2-1 lead in the series in Game 3 at home.

It was a game for the ages if you were a Warriors fan. But you can only play it every time Curry hits his first three pointer.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr revealed in an interview on The Damon Bruce Show that not only was Curry returning, but it was Curry's decision to come off the bench to begin with.

The C's have enough to put up an epic fight, but ultimately, the Sixers will "raise the cat" as they win the series.

Over the past three years, a home team down 0-2 has covered the first half point spread at an incredible 28-3 clip. The Warriors have been good at the charity stripe, cashing in 81.4 percent of their chances so far.

Also, the Warriors have Kevin Durant, NBA MVP in 2014, lead the entire lead in scoring four times and oh by the way he's the reigning Finals MVP. Making up the difference from long range was J.R. Smith (5 of 6 from 3) and Kyle Korver (5 of 12). Kevon Looney has made the most of his minutes as he's replaced JaVale McGee with eight points and eight rebounds in 23 minutes. Shoe and apparel company Under Armour launched a new trivia app called Steph: IQ that will help fans of Steph Curry win prizes. The Pelicans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Conference Semifinals games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall.

Despite the loss, there was some reason for encouragement in the New Orleans camp as it only lost by five points as opposed to 22 points in Game 1.

The Rockets are not the No. 1 seed in the National Basketball Association for no reason, they also won 65 games.

Will Steph Curry continue to score a point per minute in his second game back?

The first, being a three-pointer from the top of the key.

Pelicans: Nikola Mirotic fouled out with 2:43 left after scoring 18 points. That was our first championship moment and you think of so many memories as you think back.

All of that could mean Golden State is in for another big win. The New Orleans Pelicans have won eight of their last 10 home games. New Orleans, however, swept the Portland Trailblazers.

But Kerr said the Warriors are expecting a battle in Game 3.

Golden State ranks seventh in rebounds allowed per game (42.2) while New Orleans ranks 25th (45.6). The Raptors missed four potential game-winning shots at the end of regulation, and a wide-open 3 by VanVleet late in overtime.

New Orleans is 21-21-1 ATS at home with 30 overs and 13 unders. Offense isn't the problem for this team.
