The defending champions start their title defense on opening night when they welcome in the New Orleans Pelicans to Oracle Arena Tuesday night.
Golden State defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in 6 games last season to capture the NBA Title behind the shooting of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
As for New Orleans, they made a big stride in the 2014-2015 as they made it to the playoffs, only to fall to the Golden State Warriors in the first round.
Anthony Davis and the Pelicans can consider the 2014-2015 season a success as they made the playoffs in a crowded Western Conference and will look to build off their success here in 2015-2016.
F Anthony Davis will look to surpass his 24.4 points per game last year as he continues to be one of the best rising stars in the NBA. Davis also grabbed 10.2 rebounds to go along with 2.9 blocks.
With the season not even underway, the injuries have already began to pile up for the Pelicans. New Orleans has 6 players already dealing with some sort of injury and will try to weather an early storm of a thin roster.
F Tyreke Evans is the most important one of the injuries as he will be sidelined 6-8 weeks following knee surgery.
PG Jrue Holiday will play through his right leg surgery, but will be limited to roughly 15 minutes per game as he continues to get his leg back to full strength.
The Warriors were one of the most exciting and explosive teams in the 2014-2015 season en route to their NBA Championship and will look to have a repeat performance starting on Tuesday.
However, a bit of a disaster has already struck the Warriors as head coach Steve Kerr will be away from the team while he recovers from surgery. Kerr had two back procedures this past off season and still needs time to heal.
With him out, Luke Walton will be calling the shots.
The Warriors will return all five starter this year and that comes after they refused to let Draymond Green leave. Green signed a 5 year 82 million dollar deal as he comes off a season that saw him average 11.8 points along with 8.2 rebounds.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson come in off a 2014-2015 season that saw them make 525 3-pointers combined.
Golden State has won the last 5 meetings at home vs. New Orleans.
