Warriors complete sweep with 109-98 win over Pelicans
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Stephen Curry hit six 3-pointers during a 39-point night, and the Golden State Warriors cruised to 109-98 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, completing a sweep of their first-round playoff series.
Klay Thompson added 25 points for the Warriors, the NBA's top overall seed, who will wait to host Game 1 of their second-round series against the winner of the Portland-Memphis matchup.
Draymond Green added 22 points and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which raced to a 67-54 halftime lead and widened the gap to as many as 24 points in the second half before the desperate Pelicans briefly cut their deficit to single digits in the final minutes.
Anthony Davis had 36 points and 11 rebounds to close out what has been a remarkable third season for the Pelicans' 22-year-old franchise player. He just didn't have quite enough help.
