On Friday, May 14th the New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors will meet for the third and final time this season. The teams played a back-to-back set on May 3rd (123-108) won by Golden State and May 4th (108-103) that the Pelicans won.
Last season, the squads played four times splitting the season series with each side winning two of the contests. The Warriors hold the all-time record between the squads with 40 victories in the team’s 63 meetings.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans will return to the lottery again having been eliminated from the possibility of reaching the play-in tournament.
With talents like Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, and Lonzo Ball the Pelicans had dreams of playing in the postseason. Stan Van Gundy was hired as the head coach with the specific purpose of improving New Orleans defense and molding a perennial playoff team.

No doubt missing the playoffs is disappointing for the club but ranking 23rd defensively with the roster depth they have is disconcerting.
Down the stretch, the Pelicans alternated wins and losses with six of each but once Zion and Ingram went down the battle to push for a play-in seed became untenable. The loss to the Mavericks was the nail in the coffin as Kristaps Porzingis returned and the combination of the big man and Luka Doncic proved too much to overcome.
Steven Adams (right first MTP sprain), Ingram (left ankle sprain), and Wes Iwundu (shoulder sprain) are questionable. Williamson (left hand fracture), Lonzo Ball (right thumb sprain), and Josh Hart (right thumb surgery) are out.
Golden State Warriors
With the Grizzlies winning on Thursday they’ve added a bit of pressure to the Warriors to win in order to retain their current position as the eighth seed.
That makes the injury report a bit surprising with Stephen Curry among those listed as potentially not playing.
Surely the Warriors would rather finish eighth and have the opportunity to play just one game as opposed to finishing ninth and know they’ll have to win twice to get into the postseason.
The Dubs have won four games in a row including impressive wins versus the Jazz and Suns.
Maybe Steve Kerr is playing a game of cat and mouse given his injury report because he’s got the Curry (tailbone contusion) along with his top trio of players listed as questionable including Draymond Green (finger sprain), Andrew Wiggins (left knee soreness) and Mychal Mulder (left knee soreness).
Eric Paschall (hip flexor) is probable. Definitely out are Kelly Oubre Jr. (wrist) and Damion Lee (health, safety protocols) while Klay Thompson (Achilles) and James Wiseman (knee) are out for the season

Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Although the final match for the Warriors against the Grizzlies could end up being the deciding factor for seeding regardless of what Steve Kerr posted for the injury report the Warriors will be focused on getting this victory and continuing their momentum.
