New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors, back home, the Pelicans come home empty-handed, they could not win a single game against the Warriors at the Oracle Arena, but the Pelicans played well, they were 2 intense games, the only problem is that they must now win at home to avoid being swept by the Warriors.
New Orleans Pelicans: The impossible becomes possible at home.
The first two games of the semifinal against the Warriors were not what they expected, Curry was not available for the first game, the Pelicans scored 34 points against 35 of the Warriors in the first quarter, but that did not help the team. Casa sacked 20 points of difference and they won the first game 123-101.
Things will improve for the Pelicans in the second game, even though curry is already available, the Pelicans struggled and won the first quarter 29-27 and third quarter 31-30. The Pelicans lost the game by 5 points 121-116 but the performance was better thanks to the rotation of the ball.
Now back home, the Pelicans must make use of 113.9 points on average, 50% of field goal, 79.2 free throw and keep the Warriors below 105 points, but the Pelicans defense suffers a lot at home , for now they are allowing up to 111.9 points to visitors.
All the starters of the Pelicans are healthy.
Golden State Warriors: Sweeping the Pelicans is not that easy.
The defending champions know how difficult it will be to try to sweep the Pelicans, although for the Warriors almost anything is possible, but winning at the Pelicans’ house was possible twice during the regular season. It is possible to win the 2 games on the road, but you should not risk Steph Curry to suffer another injury.
In the regular season the Warriors won 2 games against the Pelicans: 120-128 and 115-125. The Warriors are scoring an average of 113.2 points on average, plus the effectiveness on the road for the Warriors is 69.8% with 30 wins and 13 losses.
The Pelicans can win this game if they apply the same strategy of the second game, it is much easier to win at home, they should prevent Curry from scoring three pointers with a tighter defense.
