The Warriors are coming back from a tough game this weekend at home against the Phoenix Suns. If it wasn’t for Stephen Curry’s 15 pts in the last quarter, their home game winning streak would’ve stopped at 47. The league MVP drained 15 of his game high 35 pts in the final minutes of the contest, despite entering the final quarter with a 9 point deficit. His “Splash brother” Klay Thompson added 20 pts, 6 boards, 3 assists and a steal . Their big man Draymond Green had a solid game as well adding 19 pts, 4 boards and 6 assists, 2 steals and a block. The real standout during this game was Mareese Speights who nearly posted a double double in 18 minutes of play with 25 pts, 9 boards, 2 steals and a block. The Warriors are 30-0 at home and are huge favorites to make it 31-0, having won the past 2 games against the Pelicans this year. They have not lost since their upset lost in L.A to the Lakers last Sunday.
Despite their near perfect season, they haven’t clinched the Western Conference standing just 3.5 games ahead of the solid and experienced San Antonio Spurs.
New Orleans is in a complete struggle having only won one game out of their last 8. They’re unfortunately terrible on the road, having only won 7 games and lost 26. They will only be counting on their big man Anthony Davis to outperform everyone and capitalize on the Warriors’ rare mistakes. The Pelicans are in deep trouble, as their playoff contentions are fading going into this game trailing 8th seed Dallas Mavericks by 8.5 games with 17 games left.
