1 STEPHEN CURRY — MVP
The votes were in after the regular season, but the Warriors’ sublime point guard certainly reinforced his case in the series – averaging 33.7 points and 7.3 assists, including one career highlight 3-pointer. No wonder nobody ever challenges this guy in H-O-R-S-E.
2 TOO MUCH SPEED
Not only do the Warriors excel in transition — 20 points to the Pelicans’ none on Saturday, but when they do wind up in a half-court offense, they seldom go into the final seconds of the shot clock before getting a good look. That’s why they led the league in field goal percentage.
3 ANTHONY DAVIS IS A MEGASTAR, TOO
Forget the missed free throw in regulation and the layup at the end of OT on Thursday. He put up 36 points with 11 rebounds and three blocked shots Saturday, giving him norms of 31.5, 11.0 and 3.0 for the series.
