Worriors uses the Death Lineup to destroy the Pelicans

Golden State uses the Death Lineup to destroy the Pelicans with a 118-92 win in game 4. With Draymond Green playing centre, with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson at the guard spots and Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala at forward,  it was a clear sign that they are getting more serious and no more jokes. Until this Sunday’s game four against New Orleans, we’d never seen those five players walk out for the opening tip.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr pulled the surprise move after a poor performance in game 3. By the time coach Kerr called for the first substitution, with 5:44 remaining in the first quarter, Warriors had a 20 point lead. Coach Kerr went on to the idea of calling the lineup the “Hamptons Five” – and that it’s just become the default name for the group.

It was largely the Durant Show as he posted 38 points, five assists and nine rebounds. Stephen Curry added 23 points, while Green flirted with a triple double (eight points, nine assists, nine rebounds).

The Pelicans, meanwhile, missed eight of their first 10 shots. Anthony Davis had 26 points on 8/22 shooting and 12 rebounds for the Pels. “I just feel strange, as a coach saying, ‘Well, the Hamptons Five played well tonight.’ Coach Kerr said. “I can’t say that. But you can.”
