Golden State has a chance to clinch the series on their home court.

NBA: Playoffs-Golden State Warriors at New Orleans Pelicans Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It’s here, folks: Game 5. The Golden State Warriors have a chance to take the series from the New Orleans Pelicans on their home court, and advance to the Western Conference Finals for the fourth consecutive year.

With a win they’ll set up the dream Western Conference Finals matchup against the Houston Rockets, who advanced earlier in the night with a win over the Utah Jazz.

After a strong Game 4 win, Golden State is sticking with the Hamptons 5 lineup for the second straight game, with Draymond Green starting at center and Kevin Durant at power forward.

The Warriors are 7-1 in the playoffs against the Pelicans in the Stephen Curry era. Time to make that 8-1, and clinch another Western Conference Finals bid.

It’s going to be loud at Oracle, and hopefully at whatever couch or bar you’re watching from. Everyone’s ready for the Rockets, the Warriors just need to handle business first.

Let’s go Dubs!
