Friday, November 5th, finds the New Orleans Pelicans playing the Golden State Warriors for the first time this season. The Pelicans enter having lost to the Kings on Wednesday while the Warriors beat the Hornets.
Last season, the teams played three times with Golden State winning two of the three contests. The Warriors have won 41 of the 64 matches played between the clubs all-time.
New Orleans Pelicans
It’s been a rough start to the season for the Pelicans who’ve played without Zion Williamson and have navigated early injury issues. Brandon Ingram missed the last three games due to a hip injury.
In spite of those players missing time the Pelicans gave the Knicks and Suns everything, they could handle. One stand-out has been the play of rookie Herb Jones who is offering up quality defense.
Unfortunately, Jones took an elbow from teammate Jonas Valanciunas during the Suns game and had to leave the game with a concussion and now is in the league concussion protocol program.
The Pelicans flirted with defeating the Kings especially once Richaun Holmes was ejected but couldn’t hold on to capture their second win losing 99-112 to Sacramento.
Head coach Willie Green played 13 players to compensate for the team being fatigued on a back-to-back. Five Pelicans registered double-figures with Nickel Alexander-Walker and Devonte Graham leading the way with 16 points.
Jonas Valanciunas delivered a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors continue their eight-game season-high homestand and are 2-1 after beating the Hornets It’s unusual to play that many games in a row on the home court but they have this schedule stretch and another seven-game stretch in mid-January.
It was an untypical match all around with Charlotte winning the first quarter – the first time that’s happened this year. Golden State took the other three quarters but needed to do so with Stephen Curry struggling early and finishing with 15 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists.
What stood out in the win is the depth of the Dubs, and the growth of their youth. Jordan Poole led the team with 31 points while Damion Lee scored 15.
But it was Gary Payton II (14 points) who dramatically impacted the game with his defense. In only 17 minutes he grabbed five boards, had three steals and a block, and had a palpable impact on the floor so much so that the fans chanted his name when he subbed out.
Rookie Jonathan Kuminga is back from injury and got a bit of run in the recent match versus the Thunder and another two minutes versus the Hornets.

- The Warriors are 7-3 in the last 10 head to head
- The Warriors are 5-4-1 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
- Over Under is 4-6 in the teams last 10 head to head matchups
Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Every game against the shorthanded Pelicans has the potential to be a trap game but the Warriors almost fell for that in OKC so aren’t likely to hit the snooze button again.
