Well the new Superteam in the Warriors did not look so super in losing their first game of the season, at home no less, even though newcomer Kevin Durant had a solid debut. They are on the road and a double digit favorite facing the Pelicans, who also lost their season opener.
Obviously, basketball is a team game and that is evident in the Pelicans’ season opener where they lost even though star Anthony Davis was HUGE going for 50 points, 16 boards, and 4 blocks.
To open the season the Warriors lost to the San Antonio Spurs 129-100 and the Pelicans lost to the Denver Nuggets 107-102.
Golden State Warriors
Last season the Warriors were the highest scoring team in the league and they ranked 19th in opponents’ points allowed.
In the loss to the Spurs in the opener the Warriors shot a similar FG%, but they were only 7 for 33 from 3-pt range while San Antonio was 12/24.
Durant had a good debut going for 27 points on 11/18 shooting and reigning MVP Steph Curry went for 26 on 9/18 shooting, but he missed 7 of his 10 3-pointers.
Klay Thomson tore it up in the preseason, but in the Spurs loss he only had 11 points on 5/13 shooting.
The Warriors actually had 1 more rebound in the game against the Spurs, but they were dominated on offensive boards (21-8). Golden State has to hit the boards and not give the Pelicans 2nd chance opportunities.
The starters need at least a little help and in the loss to the Spurs only one bench player had more than 2 points and that was Ian Clark, who had 5.
The Warriors were down 18 points at the half in the loss to the Spurs and they have to get off to a better start in this game.
Last season the Warriors were a NBA best 34-7 on the road.
New Orleans Pelicans
Last season the Pelicans ranked 13th in the league in points per game and 26th in opponents’ points per game.
Even though Davis had a monster night in the season opening loss to Denver he did not get much help and as a team the Pelicans only shot 41.3% from the floor. On top of that they only hit on 3 of their 19 3-pointers.
The Pelicans are plying with a few backups in the starting lineup with Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans out.
The G duo of Tim Frazier and E’Twaun Moore have to step up on offense and they especially have to play solid defense on the Splash Brothers and not let them rain down 3-pointers.
Last season the Pelicans were 21-20 on the road.
