Game 3 preview: Pelicans plan to stay aggressive

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Anthony Davis now has two NBA playoff games under his belt, and while the new experience is welcomed, the 22-year old is not happy with the results so far.

"We know it was exciting for us just to make playoffs, but that's not where we stop," Davis said. "We don't wanna be the team where we just stop there, make the playoffs and lose four in a row or whatever. We're not satisfied. Our job is to win games."

Thursday night in Game 3, the Pelicans will face the Warriors once again and the possibility of falling into the dreaded 0-3 post-season hole, which no NBA team has recovered from in post-season history.

"We got a good feel, and playing them twice, nothing's gonna change what they do and what we do," Davis said. "We gotta limit some things we do offensively as far as turning ball over, taking bad shots, even settling for jumpers. We gotta attack more."

The game plan for the Pelicans is to be more aggressive overall and try to dictate the tempo on both ends of the court. Davis has averaged 30.5 points in the first two games of the series; he needs help from the likes of Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans and Ryan Anderson.

"Just gotta be aggressive, keep attacking, still realizing that if our shots are there, we gotta take it," Davis said. "When we're aggressive, we're tough to guard."

Quincy Pondexter added, "We just gotta be ourselves, that's the main thing. Don't have any fear, go attack the rim. Go play how you play and each and every man in this locker room has to do that."
