Steve Kerr will Start 'Death Lineup' Again in Game 5

Anthony Davis and the Pelicans drop Game 4 to Warriors

It seems especially evident when one of them is coming off a relatively lackluster performance, as Kevin Durant was after game 3.

Not only did Kevin Durant look unstoppable as he was leaned on to score, but the team's "Death Lineup" - or "Hamptons Five", referring to Durant hosting free agent pitches in the Hamptons in the summer of 2016 - fired on all cylinders.

"I wasn't aggressive in Game 3, and I knew that", Durant told ESPN.

Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals between the Warriors and the Pelicans will be on Tuesday night at the Oracle Arena in California.

Utah shot just 39 per cent from the floor and 24.1 per cent from 3-point range. Back then, Harrison Barnes occupied Durant's place in the unit.

The Warriors have had success in recent years when they've deployed a small-ball unit on the court with Draymond at the five. The starting five of Durant, Thompson, Curry, Green and Iguodala may be the starting lineup going forward. James survived cramps, scored 45, and the Cavaliers held off IN to advance.

This is not to make light work of the Pelicans, who have certainly been a hard opponent.

The Warriors stormed out to a 20-8 lead with 5:44 left in the first quarter.

Somewhat bizarrely this isn't the first time this week in which headlines have been made by someone wishing harm on Draymond Green, who is noted as being one of the more controversial figures in the National Basketball Association.

Klay Thompson rounds out the three man wrecking crew. What makes them unique is how they can ratchet up the defensive intensity and suffocate opponents.

Houston plays before this game will tip off, and they can clinch a series victory on Tuesday as well. However, it wouldn't last long. If they can make a comeback, and, somehow win a ring, punters will receive odds at 151.0, but, it would be a significant waste of a bet as it looks like the Rockets will close things out very soon.

For the game, every member of the Warriors starting lineup was a +21 or better, meaning they blew out the Pelicans when they were on the floor.

Teams that play the Warriors on the road know it requires nearly a flawless performance to take them down in front of their raucous crowd. Sunday's 118-92 loss was one of New Orleans' poorest outings of the entire season, particularly at the offensive end. It was time to put the Pelicans away. Draymond Green is one of the most passionate players in the entire league, and he's never afraid to speak his mind. Kerr also likes to save his best options for the biggest moments.
