Stephen Curry carried the Golden State Warriors to a huge lead, waving his arms and flexing his muscles with one acrobatic shot after another. Every time the New Orleans Pelicans pulled closer, Curry came back even better. Curry scored 34 points with an MVP-worthy performance, and the Warriors went up big before holding off the Pelicans 106-99 in their playoff opener Saturday. They smothered Anthony Davis and the Pelicans early on with the league’s best defense, thrilling a gold shirt-wearing sellout crowd of 19,596 that rocked and roared most of the afternoon.
