Inside the coaching chess match between the Warriors and Pelicans: Slowing (and freeing) Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis is very good at basketball. What adjustments do the Warriors and Pelicans make to slow (or free) him? Anthony Davis is clearly the key to the Warriors-Pelicans series. GSOM's own Andy Liu gave us some scenes of the damage he wreaks on defense.  Now let's watch some of the chess match between Team Kerr and Team Williams as they try to stop (and start) Anthony Davis on offense. Game 1 Move #1. Draymond Green Guards AD One On One (With Backup) First move is for Kerr is to defend Anthony Davis with Draymond Green solo. Overall there has been very little (direct) double teaming...

Leftover Observations and Quotes on Game 1

I won't always do this but since I finished a quick narrative piece, here are some thoughts on the game complete with quotes. I should be able to have one of these up either the morning after games or a couple hours after, with or without video. Here's the first playoff edition. 1. Anthony Davis is completely effortless playing basketball. He struggled for the first three quarters, sure, but that comes with the territory of being 22 and playing in the toughest atmosphere in the entire league and going up against the best team in the entire league. During his 4th quarter garbage time...

Pelicans recover after ugly postseason baptism

Saturday’s series opener against the Warriors marked the first playoff appearance for the rebranded New Orleans Pelicans and forward Anthony Davis — and it showed. Despite head coach Monty Williams stressing the need for a fast start, New Orleans scored a season-low 13 points in the first quarter, missed 11 consecutive shots, and trailed by 15 at the end of the period. “A little butterflies,” admitted Davis, who overcame a tentative first half, thanks largely to the defensive tandem of Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut, to finish with 35 points and seven rebounds. Stepping up is...

Warriors run into a little trouble but slide by the Pels 106-99

Stephen Curry took over. Anthony Davis shook off his postseason jitters and did the same. The Golden State Warriors had just enough juiced to finish off the New Orleans Pelicans in Game 1 of the Western Conference first round. I entered Peak Golden State Warriors Irrational Fandom about a day before the first postseason where the Dubs are favored to win the entire thing. I've made peace with unbiased opinions, fair takes, and some semblance of logic. I thought Anthony Davis would flounder in front of a national TV crowd and against a team so historically great, this entire series would be...

Warriors' plan: Make Pelicans' Anthony Davis work hard

The Golden State Warriors will use multiple tactics against New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis.

Versatile swingman Iguodala 'a step ahead of everybody’

“He sees everything,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said of his sixth man. X-factor is also the proper moniker for Iguodala, considering the Warriors’ first-round series against New Orleans. The Pelicans have a versatile group of players, all of whom may be defended at times by the talented swingman. New Orleans starts a big front line with 7-footer Omer Asik, budding superstar Anthony Davis (6-10) and 6-7 Quincy Pondexter, who has been one of the league’s hottest three-point shooters of late. Other than against Asik, Iguodala — a 6-foot-6, 215-pound Swiss army knife of a...

NBA playoff field set: Pelicans top Spurs for final West seed

NBA playoff field set: After Anthony Davis’ final flurry of clutch shots, blocks and rebounds ensured the Pelicans’ first postseason berth since before he was drafted, the 22-year-old All-Star known as the “unibrow” was ready to admit how much it meant to him.

Sorry Anthony Davis, you still haven't posterized DeMarcus Cousins

He got close on Friday, but Anthony Davis still hasn't fulfilled his goal of posterizing DeMarcus Cousins. University of Kentucky alum DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis are friends off the court, but they are fierce competitors when the ball is tipped. Davis, who was drafted out of Kentucky in 2012, has a goal in mind against Cousins, who was drafted in 2010 - he wants to posterize him. He recently was on the Dan Patrick Show and said as much. "He just thinks that I can't dunk on him, he told me you would never dunk on me. When I catch him he going to hear about it for the rest of his...
