OAKLAND, Calif. - Stephen Curry will likely make his much-anticipated postseason debut Tuesday for Game 2 of the Golden State Warriors' second-round series against the New Orleans Pelicans. "But you saw the beat-down the Warriors put on New Orleans in Game 1, right?" "The plan is to return Tuesday, but ultimately it's up to the training staff".

With Steph Curry on the bench for the first six playoff games, Draymond has been asked to take on a larger role in the offense.

More on Golden State playing small-ball - Count Curry among those unsurprised the Warriors were successful with their new look Saturday, when they broke the game open in championship style with a 41-21 second quarter that resulted in a 21-point halftime lead. What can we expect from Curry? Without him, the Warriors' chances of a title reduce significantly. These two teams get into shootouts regularly and now one more prolific scorer is being added to the mix and Curry isn't known as a good defender. "I don't think one scrimmage is enough, even though he feels great, he wants to play and pleaded his case".

Steph Curry looks to find his rhythm when the Warriors take on the Pelicans in Game 2. Green recorded a triple-double with 16 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists, and his defense was key in limiting Anthony Davis and a substandard offensive showing. How Curry performs when this happens will give us a good idea of where he is at in his recovery, as a fully healthy Curry should have no problem dealing with them. He's played just one game since March 8 and will be going up against a team that swept the No.3 seed Portland Trail Blazers in the first round. The back of my mind I know I'm still durable, I'm still a player that's expected to be out there every single night helping my team win.

Graeme Souness has told Steven Gerrard that he should take the chance to manage Rangers if it presents itself. He had a massive amount of experience as a player - I think I would talk to him as well if I owned a club.

The Warriors are 21-2 in the playoffs since Kevin Durant joined the team a year ago.

However, only time will tell how Curry will perform upon his return to action, and tonight is that time!

With Durant needing a new contract this summer and Green only having two more seasons left on his deal, the Warriors will have to make a decision on Thompson and how rich of a deal they'll be willing to dole out to him.

Pelicans: The Pelicans' 126-120 win April 7 in Oakland snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Warriors.
