Golden State Warriors

Although they won’t be taking the Pelicans lightly, the Warriors know they have nothing to fear this evening. In their last 17-games versus Golden State, the Pelicans have conceded 16 losses. Barring some miracle, the Warriors should come out on top decisively. Testament to that are the results of Games 1 and two, which saw Golden State come out on top by a combined 27-points. And despite the fact that the series is now headed to New Orleans, Golden State will be favored decisively. Furthermore, now that Stephen Curry has joined Golden State’s starters, the Pelicans have no chance.

Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (28.0 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 5.0 apg), Stephen Curry (28.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.0 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.7 apg).

New Orleans Pelicans

It’s pretty clear by now that New Orleans doesn’t have much hope this evening. In Game 1, Anthony Davis led New Orleans in points with a 21-poitn performance. However, after him, no other Pelican was able to break 20 on the night. Game 2 was much different nonetheless, with three of New Orleans players surpassing 20 digits. But despite their most valiant efforts, New Orleans still ended up losing by 5.

Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (29.7 ppg, 12.0 rpg, 1.7 apg), Jrue Holiday (24.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 6.3 apg), and Nikola Mirotic (16.7 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 1.5 apg).
