A Western Conference showdown takes place in New Orleans Tuesday night, when the Warriors travel to the Big Easy to take on the Pelicans.
This match up has star power all around. The Warriors are filled with stars, and the Pelicans have Anthony Davis.
This is the third game of the season between the two teams. The Warriors beat the Pelicans in the first two match ups.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans have been a very confusing team early on this season. They had the NBA’s worst start and then they got Jrue Holiday back. With Holiday back the Pelicans were able to get a few wins, but now have lost five of their last six.
The Pelicans should come into this game with confidence though. In their last match up the Pelicans played well, and actually were winning in the fourth quarter before the Warriors pulled away.
They lost both games by 10 points or less. They also didn’t have Jrue Holiday in either of those games, so with him back they should feel they have a real shot to win.
The Pelicans are led by Anthony Davis. He is averaging 30.6 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. He is a match up nightmare for opposing teams night in and night out.
The Pelicans average 102 points scored per game and are giving up over 106. Opposing teams are shooting 44.6 percent from the field.
At home this season, the Pelicans are 5-8.
Golden State Warriors
There are not enough words to describe how well the Warriors are playing. They did have one hiccup last week against Memphis but they got back on their winning ways Sunday against the Timberwolves. The Wolves actually were leading going into the fourth quarter by eight, but Warriors dominated the fourth and won by eight points.
In the last game against the Pelicans, the Warriors were led by Steph Curry. He had 46 points, including 13-17 from the three point line. As a team the Warriors shot 50 percent from the field.
If you shoot 50 percent from the field, you aren’t going to lose many games.
The Warriors and their big four have lived up to expectations. They combine for all but 35 of the teams points.
On the season they score 118 points per game. They shoot 49.8 percent from the field, and 37.9 percent from behind the three point arc.
On the defensive end they give up 106 points per game, which for a team that runs that is a very lower number.
So far this season the Warriors are 12-2 away from home.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
The Warriors on paper should dominate this game. But the Warriors don’t really have anyone to match up with Anthony Davis. I think Davis will have another 40 points game but it won’t be enough.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pelicans ATS.
The Warriors will win but it will be close.
