New Orleans Pelicans Basketball

Pelicans and Warriors Looking for 1st Win

The Golden State Warriors and the New Orleans Pelicans will both be looking for their first wins on Friday when they meet at Smoothie King Center.

The Warriors limp into tonights matchup, and the Pelicans are happy to see what their twin towers down low can accomplish.

Oddsmakers opened the Warriors as -6.5-point favorites versus the Pelicans, while the game’s total opened at 224. The line has moved to Golden State -8.5. The total has dropped to 221.

Pelicans Anxious to See Results of Davis and Cousins

New Orleans was a 103-91 loser in its last match on the road against the Memphis Grizzlies. They failed to cover the +2-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 194 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Pelicans showed in the loss at Memphis on Wednesday that Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins can post good numbers. But can they get any help is the big question.

Davis had 33 points and 18 rebounds. Cousins added 28 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high seven blocks. The real problem is that guard E’Twaun Moore, with 11 points, was the only other player in double figures.

Point guard Jrue Holiday scored four points on 2-of-11 shooting. He had only four assists and three turnovers. Holiday moved to the point while Rajon Rondo is recovering from sports hernia surgery.

Warriors are Battling Injury Bug Early On

Golden State was a 122-121 loser at home against the Houston Rockets. They failed to cover the -9.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (243) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

Forward Draymond Green twisted his left knee in the third quarter against the Rockets. He underwent an MRI on Wednesday. The Warriors listed him Thursday as doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Friday night.

The examination revealed “no new structural damage” to the knee. Green traveled with the team on the three-game road trip. The trip includes the Warriors’ first back-to-back Saturday night against Memphis and a Monday night game against Dallas.

The Warriors are more short-handed than normal off the bench. Andre Iguodala practiced Wednesday after missing the opener with a strained back. He is listed as “day-to-day.”

Shooting guard Omri Casspi sprained his left ankle in the season opener after coming in with a sore right ankle.
