No decision for Severino

Severino’s lone shaky outing of the season came against the Red Sox, when he allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings on April 10 at Fenway Park in Boston. Despite walking away with a no decision, he was much sharper in his second start against the Yankees’ rival.

He allowed two earned run on six hits over six-plus innings. He struck out 11 and didn’t allow a walk.

So, with those (many) caveats, here are grades on the 2014 NFL draft, thanks to some substantial help from hindsight. Arizona Cardinals Round 1 (27 overall). Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State 2 (52). Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame 3 (84).

We’ve got to win one game at Oracle and that’s the one that we play next, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. That’s as far as we need to look. Obviously it’s a monumental task. It’s been done before. As I said to the guys, ‘We just got to go and play and you’re not out until they win four games.’

KEEP ANY EYE ON : Stephen Curry continues to find his groove and this will be his fourth game back from nearly six weeks sidelined with a sprained left knee. His minutes are increasing each game he plays, up to 31 in Game 4. Curry is 22 for 51 with 12 3s so far this series.

TOUGH CHALLENGE: The Pelicans never know which Golden State star might be on any given night — or all of them at once.

The Warriors led wire to wire in Game 4 following its 19-point embarrassment in Game 3. Kevin Durant is coming off a 38-point performance, but it could be Klay Thompson’s turn, or Draymond Green chasing another triple-double. sharks-004
