The Golden State Warriors are heading to the Western Conference Finals for the fourth consecutive season. Draymond Green almost had a triple-double, scoring 19 points, grabbing 14 rebounds and dishing out nine assists.

Quite an wonderful feat considering that the Warriors has had no shortage of triple-double-carving players in their lineage - since moving to the Bay Area, they had a rookie Chris Webber as well as forward Chris Mullin do it a couple of times.

Rajon Rondo was non-committal when asked if he'll be back with the Pelicans next season. Steve Kerr's group offered a reminder to the rest of the league that when it is locked in at the defensive end it will be incredibly tough to beat.

While they did not explicitly mention the pooping, they said that Tramaglini has been placed on paid administrative leave. Tramaglini is also a part-time lecturer for the Rutgers Graduate School of Education, according to public records.

It was another impressive performance from Curry, who missed nearly six weeks because of a knee injury before returning to face the Pelicans in Game 2. The former MVP was 10-for-16 from the field and looked confident bouncing around the floor on Tuesday night. Davis led the Pelicans to the Western Conference semifinals, despite the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to a season ending torn Achilles tendon three months ago. A strong third-quarter from Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson helped the team overpower a squad led by Anthony Davis.

Curry feels he is getting back into the groove at the right time with a series against the Rockets to come. Coincidentally, this feat was achieved at the expense of the Houston Rockets, their upcoming Conference Finals opponent.
