Kerr: Rondo trying to trip Curry was 'dangerous…you can't do that'

Now their combustible convergence in the playoffs is providing spicy subplot to the Western Conference semifinal series between New Orleans and Golden State. He received a lot of help from star point guard Jrue Holiday, who scored 21 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and dished out five assists. Their combustible convergence is compelling because both players are leaders who produce even as they engage in psychological gamesmanship. Knowing Green and listening to Rondo, it's evident that this new rivalry is not likely to go away, at least not during this series.

Green, however, said the team's defensive woes were a collective failure. This is probably the play Kerr was talking about. They are accomplished leaders who produce. Hopefully they just keep an eye on it.

The way he influences others is a major reason why Gentry believes Rondo has the potential to become a highly sought-after coaching candidate whenever his playing days are over.

Gentry was a Warriors assistant on Golden State's 2015 championship team and maintains a friendly off-court relationship with Green.

"Oh, OK. How many times have I walked up to him?" I'm chilling, playing basketball. You're going to be face-to-face with somebody, that's how you guard.

Draymond Green's physical style of play has earned him a bit of a reputation as an on-court instigator over the years. He asserted that his awareness of Rondo's intentions is why he hasn't been suckered into escalations that could result in a technical foul or ejection.

"I'm not an idiot, that's for sure", he said. "I get nothing out of trying to bait Rondo at anything". "But at some point, y'all gotta tell the truth. It ain't Draymond this time". He said it's part of the game, though he did make one exception. Eric Gordon added another 25 points in a merciless display by a Rockets team that led the league with 65 regular-season victories.

Pelicans forward Solomon Hill explained that Rondo - accomplished, playoff-savvy veteran that he is - seeks to neutralize Green's psychological effect by taking on a "big brother" role for the Pelicans. When have I gotten in into Rondo this series? You're going to do whatever you got to do to win. New Orleans outrebounded the Warriors 54 to 44 and finished with a 19-12 advantage in second-chance points.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr was not surprised to see the Pelicans respond after dropping the first two games in Oakland. "Y'all hate the storyline that somebody is trying to bait me", Green said. I say I did what I set out to do or I didn't do what I set out to do and, most importantly, to win a basketball game. "And I love it - we need that". Kerr said he wasn't surprised to see Curry's production dip in his second game back. In fact, he's not going to back down from anybody.

We'll find out this Sunday as Game 4 tips off from New Orleans. The Rockets shot 59 percent from the field before halftime and never looked back.

"We just did what we were supposed to do", Davis said. Despite going for 55 fantasy points last game, his price decreased.

"He's not really running off of screens a lot", Durant said. I didn't show up for my teammates. "That can't happen. It's like I would have been better off not showing up - and that's what I did".
