Jrue Holiday is a star in the making. There have been rumors if the Trail Blazers don't have postseason success this year, the front office could choose to break up their backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum via trade. Jusuf Nurkic has been disappointing in this series and he scored just five points in Game 3 while Lillard has been completely outplayed by the Pelicans' Holiday who has outscored him by 70-55 so far this series. I asked Lindsay if she died her hair red for the playoffs and she said, "It's always this way". I think in the playoffs, and in a situation like this when a team is coming for you like that, you've gotta maybe go out of your way to do it back - even if that means some foul trouble or some altercations happen out there or whatever. The Pelicans won Game 1 on Saturday night, 97-95.

If New Orleans can pull off the four-game sweep of the Portland Trailblazers, it would be huge for the team going into the next round. Portland shot the ball decently, hitting 46.3 percent from the floor overall, but they were only nine of 31 from beyond the arc in the contest: they hit 19 of their 25 free throw attempts. I know, I hate it too. "It's as simple as that". Lillard believes that grit and tenacity are the factors that have gone New Orleans' way in the first three games of the series. No, they still don't have DeMarcus Cousins, and they never will until next season.

Nikola Mirotic and Anthony Davis led the way as New Orleans dominated from start to finish to seize a 3-0 lead series lead. But on the following play Nikola Mirotic hit a insane rainbow three to take the lead right back.

The Pelicans, a team no one wanted to be here, has forced you notice them.

Harkless had 11 points on 5-for-5 shooting and five rebounds off the bench in Game 2.

Terry Stotts noticed Nurk's shortcomings in the series, therefore limiting his court time. "The realistic thing is that we are not favorites", Ginobili said.

The Pelicans are looking for a separation in the series as they host the Trail Blazers. "Those are two pretty impressive wins". "We really didn't have a right to win the game". Vegas tends to set the total high when the Trail Blazers are involved, as 56.5 percent of their games have finished under the total.

23-8: New Orleans record (including playoffs) since February 10, a stretch that includes separate winning streaks of 10, four and now eight games.
