Rajon Rondo guiding Pelicans with leadership on and off the court

There were couple instances in Game 3, with officials playing referee both times and separating the two.

In the first quarter, Rondo dangled his right foot underneath an airborne Stephen Curry while the two-time MVP was shooting a jumper.

The Golden State Warriors coach was asked on Saturday about Green and Rondo going back and forth with each other. They are not the type of trash-talking, loud-mouths who otherwise play marginal roles. "From the beginning of the game, we made a conscious effort to get stops and offensively push the pace and get shots, and we did that", Rockets guard James Harden said. "It's not going to do anything". If somebody's open on the pick-and-roll if they double, just making a good pass. "It's a risky play". Eric Gordon added another 25 points in a merciless display by a Rockets team that led the league with 65 regular-season victories.

"Game 4 will be the toughest game we've ever had."

Ian Clark has been miserable in this series, so we believe Rondo will see extended minutes in a must-win game at home in New Orleans. If New Orleans can find a way to even the series, all the pressure will end up falling back on the Warriors. You're going to be face-to-face with somebody, that's how you guard.

The questioner didn't even get to finish his inquiry. Once again, when have I went up to him and tried to bait him? Curry has had significant ankle injuries in the past, and it looks like Rondo was trying to take advantage of that. "You're not going to come out here and dance around and disrespect us as competitors'".

Draymond: "I think I'm entitled to".

"I don't have to try and bait Rondo", he said.

".Y'all say I cross a line". We're competing. I don't think there's nothing more than we're battling on the court.

Green feels that he is being targeted by the Pelicans, and particularly by Rondo, in an attempt to exploit his reputation. "That does nothing for me", Green said, insinuating that Rondo initiated their exchanges. "[Kevin Durant] will have a better shooting day tomorrow". Coincidence or not, the fourth time they accomplished that came April 7 at Golden State, in a 126-120 win. The Pelicans continued to play at an elite level offensively in home postseason games, shooting 50 percent from the field and 45 percent from three-point range in Game 3.

"Nah, it's basketball", he said. "It was just great movement of the ball, playing unselfishly". I haven't seen it, but it's basketball.
