Polk's website, like his Twitter account, is unavailable, but he explained his approach to comedy and social media in a Medium.com interview last May, adding that his Twitter feed "is sports, amusing human beings (like, three comics), and pictures of dogs".
Green got so upset that he made a decision to text Kevin Durant, who scored just 22 points on 8-of-18 shooting in the 19-point loss. Cook made a solid contribution off the bench in Game 4 with 12 points on five-of-eight shooting while making a pair of 3-pointers. As of Tuesday morning, 56 percent of public bets are siding with host Golden State.
The Warriors landed back in the Bay Area and the clock still read Sunday, around 11 p.m., a benefit of an afternoon tip in New Orleans. For a few minutes in the second quarter, they were within single digits.
Gentry has repeatedly stressed to his team that the only thing that should be on their mind is winning Game 5.
Both teams have had a player step their game up over their last five games.
On the road, New Orleans is 29-16 ATS with 23 unders and 22 overs. By unleashing Durant in Game 4, however, Golden State sharpened a weapon they may have to break out later on when their preferred offensive approach isn't working.
"I hope Draymond get shot in the face as soon as he leaves the arena, which looking at the city-wide stats, is like 37%", Polk tweeted.
After the Pelicans came out in Game 3 and smacked the Warriors in the mouth, Steve Kerr knew it was time to stop messing around. "After five weeks, the adrenaline rush is insane the first game". Golden State got physical with Davis and forced him into much less comfortable positions than Game 3.
One game after accumulating his playoff season-high of 21 assists in Game 3, Rondo had his playoff season-low of six. New Orleans has done their fair share of damage in the low block but Golden State has the perimeter depth and talent to stretch things out.
The Warriors rank eighth in rebounds allowed per game (42.5) while the Pelicans rank 25th (45.5).
This is Paul's fifth appearance in the conference semifinals after losing to the Spurs 4-3 in 2008 while with New Orleans, being swept by San Antonio in 2012 with the Clippers and losing 4-2 to the Thunder with that team before that 2015 debacle against the Rockets.
The Pelicans have been outscored by an average of 5.2 points in their last five games.
The defending champions now hold a commanding 3-1 lead in the series and can close it out to reach the conference finals for a fourth successive year with a win on Tuesday night at home.
