New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors
NBA Post Season
Western Conference Semi-Finals, Warriors lead the series 2-0
NOP VS GSW DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Golden State Warriors head to Louisiana to take on New Orleans Pelicans for the crunch 3rd game in the Western Conference semifinals. The defending Champions took a 2-0 lead in the 7-Game series after beating Pelicans 121-116 in the 2nd game at Oracle Arena.
Stephen Curry returned to the Warriors’ line-up in the last game for the first time in the playoffs. The two-time MVP has missed GSW’s 22 of the last 23 games and made an immediate impact in the match, scoring 28 points, but more importantly, Warriors were +26 when he was on the court and -21 when he wasn’t in the thick of the action, proving once again that he is the key To Dubs’ success this season.
But New Orleans Pelicans were quite aggressive in the game 2. In fact, they led the game on many occasion and matched Warriors’ pace throughout the night. It’s quite difficult to go toe-to-toe against Curry and Company, but Pelicans managed to do that as they had 105 shots on the night. But they still fell short in that game.
However, the way Anthony Davis and Co went about their business in the last game, it shows that Warriors can be tamed if teams are not afraid of them. Pelicans have their own line of superstars who have everything in them to match the high standards of Warriors’ players.
Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, and Rajon Rondo all had a solid performance in the game 2, and considering Pelicans are at home in game-3, we are expecting them to be much closer to Warriors than they managed in the first two games.

Superstar Stephen Curry returned to Warriors’ line-up in the 2nd game. He didn’t start the game but came off the bench like a rookie, and scoring his first three-pointer from his first attempt.

NOP VS GSW DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
It’s difficult to call this game. Pelicans showed in flashes in the last game that Warriors can be outmatched on a Basketball court. But the real problem was Stephen Curry in the game-2. Warriors looked like unbeatable when Curry was on the court, while without him, Dubs were vulnerable.
If Pelicans manage to contain both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, then they could claw their back into this series.
But we are looking at a Warriors win in today’s game.
