Alvin Gentry's 2018-19 option picked up by Pelicans

Alvin Gentry's 2018-19 option picked up by Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans swept the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs without the injured DeMarcus Cousins, and they have reportedly considered offering the big man a short-term deal instead of a max offer.

Alvin Gentry earned his way to at least one more season on the New Orleans Pelicans' bench. But it's obvious they're hesitant to tie up so much money with someone who may come back as an entirely different player.

Even without Curry, the answer is most likely no.

New Orleans' sweep of Portland was a team effort through and through, but Holiday will receive the most recognition from it, as no one expected him to dominate every facet of the game as he did. He said the team was headed that way before Demarcus Cousins was lost for the season with an Achilles injury January 26th.

Against the Blazers, Holiday would average 27.8 points and 6.5 assists in four games.

The Western Conference sixth-seeded New Orleans Pelicans dispatched the third-seeded Portland Trail Blazers like a hot knife through butter and will now face the defending world champion Golden State Warriors, the West's second seed, starting Saturday in Oakland. But again, that's not going to happen this year with Olshey at the helm, and Olshey is probably sticking around.

Marquez stripped of pole at Grand Prix of the Americas
Vinales won three of the first five races of 2017 but hasn't taken the checkered flag since winning in France almost a year ago. Vinales was promoted to the top slot, ahead of Suzuki's Italian Andrea Iannone and Tech 3 Yamaha's French rider Johann Zarco.

Lillard turned in an MVP-type performance in the regular season. And though the Warriors should be heavy championship favorites, New Orleans could play them tougher than anyone expects.

Davis averaged 33 points, 12 rebounds and almost three blocks per game during the first round of the playoffs, earning him constant "M-V-P" chants from fans - who hope this is just the start. Time to be determined and it'll be on TV on TNT as all we know about this and we'll also be on fox sports aren't.

Holiday was limited with a lower-leg injury the last time the Pelicans met the Warriors in the playoffs, but this time we'll get to see what he can do on both ends in a best-of-seven series against Thompson. He averaged 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game - good for a 28.98 PER.

Having a veteran guard like Rajon Rondo to run the offense helped. Join the Pelican Debrief team! New Orleans' two best players, Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, are lockdown mid-range shooters, converting on 47.4% and 53.8% of their shots, respectively. I've seen plenty of highlights of what he's doing this postseason and it's wonderful.

Of course, the challenge will be even greater for the Pelicans.
