“We’re going to play at a fast pace,” Gentry says. “I know some would say, `You’re kind of playing into Golden State’s hands. But this is the way we’ve played the whole season, so we’re not going to all of a sudden try to adjust and do something completely different, because the success we’ve had has been based on playing at a fast pace and being a team that has played the fastest pace in the league.
The Pelicans found a measure of vindication in Game 3, when the Warriors had an off night shooting and New Orleans won by 19 points. But in Game 4 on Sunday, the Warriors ramped up their defensive intensity, shot better and beat New Orleans by 20-plus points for the second time in the series. Now Golden State can close out the series at home in Game 5 on Tuesday night.
After a 118-92 beatdown at the hands of the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, the Pelicans were scheduled to practice in Oakland, Calif., Monday afternoon (May 7) in preparation for Game 5 of their second-round series.
Instead, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry decided to give his team the day off to recover physically and mentally from the biggest blowout loss they’ve suffered at home this season.
“I thought it was important. We originally had a practice scheduled but we do have guys that are playing heavy minutes,” said Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry. “(Nikola Mirotic), (Anthony Davis) and Jrue (Holiday) — really all the starters are playing real heavy minutes. I thought it would be a good idea today to let their minds rest, their bodies rest.”
