The Warriors face the Pelicans at 5 p.m. PST with the opportunity to pull off a first round sweep.

The Golden State Warriors have the opportunity to pull off a first round sweep of the New Orleans Pelicans when they tip-off for Game 4 tonight at the Smoothie King Center tonight.

It will be the first time they enter the fourth game of a playoff series up 3-0 since 1975, which adds a bit of historical weight to their dramatic win in Game 3 — if history is any indication, their improbable comeback probably sealed the deal on a trip to the second round.

Nevertheless, we shouldn't expect the Warriors' path to a sweep to be easy: as Bram Kincheloe wrote yesterday, the Pelicans had their "coming out party" in Game 3 and they're not likely to go down easily now. That makes Game 4 worth watching even if the outcome of the series is hardly in doubt.

Game 4 might also mark the playoff debut of Warriors forward David Lee, who has missed the first three games of the series due to a back injury. As someone who has averaged less than 20 minutes per game in his 49 games this season, it's hard to know how significant a factor he'll be against Anthony Davis and the Pelicans.
