Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis are going down fighting for the Pelicans. Holiday has a triple double and Davis has been a monster throughout the series. The future is bright in New Orleans if they can add another piece or two this summer.

Golden State has its biggest lead of the game. New Orleans trails by 13 two minutes into the third quarter. The Warriors are trying to put the game out of reach in this quarter, just like they've done many times this season.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Solid effort from Pelicans so far. They've withstood a few Warriors runs and hung tough. Anthony Davis is in the middle of a huge night with 18 points and 10 rebounds already. New Orleans has to maintain its composure to start the second half — the beginning of the third quarter of Game 4 is when Golden State took control of the game for good.

Pelicans hanging on early. Their long range shooting them is keeping them in it. They are 6-for-9 from beyond the arc. Jrue Holiday has eight points but the Pelicans have to do a better job of taking care of the ball — they already have five turnovers.

Kevin Durant was given a body shot by Nikola Mirotic on a 3-point attempt, sending the forward to the hardwood. Durant got up and tried to approach Mirotic, but teammates intervened.

Pelicans are doubling Kevin Durant hard and leaving Draymond Green open more than usual. That's the plan in this potential elimination game.
