NBA: Golden State Warriors at Sacramento Kings

The Warriors got the job done at home in the first two games against the Pelicans. Now the scene shifts to New Orleans, where the Warriors will face a hostile playoff crowd. Monty Williams is likely expecting Pelican fans to come out in full force after he complained about the noise level at Oracle Arena.

The Pelicans are hopeful they will have Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday healthy and ready to go for Game 3, but that remains to be seen. The Warriors have their own injury problems to worry about. According to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group, David Lee will not be making his playoff debut in Game 3:

Lee has been bothered by a back injury that caused him to miss some games at the end of the season. He saw limited minutes down the stretch and has been held out of the first two games of this series. While his role on this team is not prominent, Lee still provides a low post scoring threat that can provide a boost off the bench.

The Warriors will be looking to take a 3-0 series lead, which would almost guarantee their place in the Western Conference semi-finals. They will have to get it done without Lee in Game 3, but maybe he will be available later in the series.
