New Orleans began the series as decided underdogs to Portland and installed as 6½-point underdogs in Game 1 of their first-round clash. The win marked the first time in National Basketball Association history that a team seeded sixth or lower swept a first-round series in the modern best-of-seven format, which replaced best-of-five series in 2003. But it's obvious they're hesitant to tie up so much money with someone who may come back as an entirely different player.
With that in mind, it makes the fact that Holiday was able to maintain a true shooting percentage of 63 percent even more impressive. They didn't let that stop them, winning close games in Portland and then cruising to blowouts in New Orleans to sweep the Blazers.

And though the Warriors should be heavy championship favorites, New Orleans could play them tougher than anyone expects. "You can key in on a certain team and be able to study them for a long time because you know you have at least four games". The Warriors aren't going to take the Pelicans lightly. He scored 28 points, making 10-of-18 from the field, including 6-of-11 from deep. Between him and Rajon Rondo, the Pelicans have two lethal ball handlers.
