Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans, first semifinal game of coference between these two teams, both teams come with perfect records in the first round of the playoffs, the Pelicans swept the Trail Blazzers, while Golden State Warriors only lost one game against the Spurs .
Golden State Warriors: They feel powerful at home.
San Antonio Spurs could not do anything against the Warriors, the team of texas was surpassed in almost all games, and best of all was that they won that series without the presence of Steph Curry. The result of the games was 113-92, 116-101, 110-97, they lost the fourth game 90-103 but in the fifth game at Oracle Arena they finished the 99-91 series.
It is not yet confirmed if Curry played tonight against the Pelicans, but what we do know is that the Warriors at home are one of the best teams in the league. 32-12 is the home record for the Warriors, with 72.7% effectiveness being the third team with the best winning ERA in the 2018 NBA.
At home the Warriors are scoring an average of 112.9 points, without Curry, field goal effectiveness is at 51%, free throws at 82.9% and an average of 11.18 three pointers per game.
Curry had training on the court, but it has not been confirmed by the Warriors if Curry’s debut will be tonight.
New Orleans Pelicans: Winning on the road is not a problem.
Eliminating the Portland Trail Blazzers was easy for the Pelicans, they won at home and on the road, the team’s performance was even better than in the regular season, Anthony Davis is a points machine and starters have followed suit.
The Pelicans do not have Cousins but the effectiveness during the season has remained at 60.5% on the road, Davis is scoring 28.1 points, Holiday 19 and Mirotic 14, are the 3 starters with the best average.
This game is a jewel, we are talking about two of the best teams in the playoffs, they will play the semifinal to the maximum, predicting is not easy, but I would like to take the risk with the Pelicans, since the Warriors will not have Curry (almost certainly not will be 100%).
My Free Pick & Prediction for Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans today on 28/4/2018 is: Take the New Orleans Pelicans +9.0 (spread)
