DeMarcus Cousins Unlikely To Get Max Contract In Free Agency

I keep returning to this, but one reason for this overreaction is just how efficiently New Orleans torched Portland's playoff aspirations. He essentially forced a trade after his sixth season amid concerns about ownership.

The Pelicans say they have sought to notify those whose tickets have been voided, as well as businesses that sell Pelicans tickets on the secondary market. But the Pelicans still pose a definite challenge for Golden State. They didn't let that stop them, winning close games in Portland and then cruising to blowouts in New Orleans to sweep the Blazers.

I am not going to say the Warriors are a dirty team or anything of the sort. I love playing for the city. So, apparently, is the rest of the world.

Of course, the challenge will be even greater for the Pelicans. OKC and Minnesota could be going home if they lose tonight.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees remains New Orleans' most popular athlete.

New Orleans will play the victor of the Golden State-San Antonio series in the Western Conference semifinals.

The last time they were in the second round of the playoffs was when they were still called the Hornets in the 2007-08 season.

Davis averaged 33 points, 12 rebounds and almost three blocks per game during the first round of the playoffs, earning him constant "M-V-P" chants from fans - who hope this is just the start.

The Warriors and Pelicans are much different teams these days.

DeMarcus Cousins shouldn't expect a visit from the proverbial Brink's truck.

The Pelicans finished the regular season tied for the fourth-best record in the Western Conference but were pushed to the No. 6 seed by a series of tiebreakers.

That's not to diminish Cousins as one of the most talented frontcourt players in the National Basketball Association. Pelicans power forward Nikola Mirotic averaged 18 points and 9.2 boards per game to help the cause.

Unlike when Paul was in New Orleans, the Pelicans are now on sound financial footing, with the same local ownership as the NFL's Saints. New Orleans' two best players, Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, are lockdown mid-range shooters, converting on 47.4% and 53.8% of their shots, respectively.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry figures that facing the defending champs will be no easy task, even if Stephen Curry struggles to come back from his knee injury.

"I just want to out-coach Steve", he joked.

Pushing the pace, Rondo racked up 53 assists in four games and mixed in his share of slashing layups when defenses over-committed to Davis or Holiday.

Playoff Rondo is also a real thing.
