On Monday, May 3rd the Golden State Warriors tip-off versus the New Orleans Pelicans for the first time this season with a second game to complete the back-to-back on Tuesday and their third meeting on May 14th in Golden State.
It’s a bit odd all three games between the teams are scheduled to occur in the final eight games of the season. The fact they are could have major implications on the seeding.
In one week the bottom of the ladder has shifted dramatically. The Warriors jumped from 10th to ninth, a half-game back of the Grizzlies partially because both the Grizzlies and Spurs lost three of their four games and the Dubs only played three matches (with two losses) this week.
Similarly, the Pelicans began the week trailing 10th by 4.0 games and finish trailing by 2.5 games. Hence, the trio of games versus the Dubs could decide their season.
Last season, the squads played four times split those games with each side winning twice. The Warriors hold the all-time record having won 39 of the 61 contests.
Golden State Warriors
The Dubs got their lone win of the week versus the Rockets following two losses. Stephen Curry continued his hot streak scoring 30 points with seven made 3-pointers as well as six rebounds, five assists, and a steal.

Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points while Draymond Green offered nine points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, and a steal. Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole each scored 17 off the bench.
Andrew Wiggins (knee soreness) is questionable while Damion Lee (health, safety protocols), and Kelly Oubre (wrist) are out.
Eric Paschall (hip) out indefinitely. Klay Thompson (Achilles) and James Wiseman (knee) are out for the season.
New Orleans Pelicans
A solid week by the Pels is keeping them in the mix for the play-in tournament. The most impressive was the overtime victory versus the Wolves to finish the week.
Sure, Minnesota is stuck at the bottom of the ladder but with D’Angelo Russell back the T-Wolves were on a four-game win streak.
Zion Williamson flirted with a triple-double producing 37 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, a steal, and a block. Lonzo Ball offered a double-double of 33 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, and three steals.
Eric Bledsoe (16), Brandon Ingram (14), and Jaxson Hayes (13), and Willy Hernangomez (12) were the other double-figure contributors.
Steven Adams (right MTP sprain) is questionable for Monday’s match.
Nickeil Alexander-Walker suffered a high ankle sprain while Josh Hart underwent thumb surgery. Both are out versus the Warriors. Marcos Louzada Silva is not with the team.

Free Golden State Warriors vs New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction
Draymond Green will have his hands full trying to slow Zion Williamson while presumably Lonzo Ball will be tasked with chasing Curry all over the court. If Wiggins is also out it means the Dubs bench will need to step up but it feels like they’ll be down too many players.
