Current Records: New Orleans 1-8; Golden State 6-1
What to Know
The Golden State Warriors are 21-5 against the New Orleans Pelicans since October of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Friday. The Warriors will stay at home another game and welcome New Orleans at 10 p.m. ET Nov. 5 at Chase Center. If the contest is anything like Golden State’s 125-122 victory from their previous meeting in May, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.
Golden State made easy work of the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday and carried off a 114-92 win. The score was close at the half, but Golden State pulled away in the second half with 61 points. Among those leading the charge for them was shooting guard Jordan Poole, who shot 7-for-16 from beyond the arc and finished with 31 points.
Meanwhile, New Orleans lost to the Sacramento Kings on the road by a decisive 112-99 margin. Shooting guard Josh Hart had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 31 minutes but putting up just nine points.
The Warriors are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Golden State’s victory brought them up to 6-1 while the Pelicans’ loss pulled them down to 1-8. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: Golden State have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.10%, which places them third in the league. On the other end of the spectrum, New Orleans has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.20% from the floor on average, which is the fourth highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. So the cards are definitely stacked against New Orleans.
