Warriors vs. Pelicans Game 4 lineup: Andre Iguodala will start, Draymond Green at center

The Warriors try to take a 3-1 lead over the Pelicans, but Steve Kerr is going to start the Hamptons 5 lineup to try to get off to a better start.

Put simply, Game 3 sucked and we should all forget about it.

But Game 3 was also not the end of the world. As Steph Curry said after the game, being in position to take a 3-1 lead in Game 4 is a nice place to be.

The only question this morning was who Steve Kerr will start in Game 4. The JaVale McGee thing didnt work, though there are far too many people blaming him for a game that he played less than 10 minutes of. The problem is that they just need to get off to a good start when going uo against Anthony Davis and this just isn’t the right matchup for McGee.

Kerr’s lineups have been anything but predictable (Nick Young has also started games, remember) so it’s hard to say what he’ll do here, but there was a fairly steady drumbeat from media in favor of the Hamptons 5 lineup.

And Draymond Green has said he’s ready to play as much time at the 5 as the team needs.

Ultimately, that’s the direction Kerr will go: Andre Iguodala will get the start and Draymond Green will start at center.

There’s no need to wallow in the mess of Game 3 - their problems are all easily fixed. So I’m gonna go optimistic on y’all today and just say they’re going to win today.
