Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors
The Warriors welcome the Pelicans to Oracle Arena as they will take on the Pelicans on Wednesday. The Warriors are coming off a blowout victory against the Bulls while the Pelicans have now loss two straight games. Game tips off at 10:30 PM ET.
New Orleans Pelicans's Latest Performance :
After a 4-0 start to the season, the Pelicans have now dropped two straight. The task doesn’t get any easier for the Pelicans as they will play the Golden State Warriors who are currently on a tear offensively. Anthony Davis is still listed as questionable for the game against the Warriors which means Randle will likely get his minutes. Randle in his last time out, put up an impressive stat line of 24 points (8-of-13 FGs, 8-of-11 FTs) with eight rebounds, six assists in a losing effort against the Nuggets. The Pelicans are struggling mightily without their star player on the floor as they could see themselves losing 3 straight after an impressive start. Without Davis on the floor that means the offensive responsibility has to go to Jrue Holiday who dropped 16 points with eight rebounds, nine assists in his last game. The Pelicans are a good team however without Davis on the floor it will be tough for them to compete with the Warriors.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors are coming off a dominant victory against the Bulls where they were able to put up 92 points in the first half. Klay Thompson after struggling to shoot the ball to start the season had himself a career night as he scored 52 points and broke Stephen Curry’s NBA record with 14 triples. Thompson’s 52 points are the highest scoring game of the season with Curry (51) and Blake Griffin (50) right behind. Thompson added five rebounds and one steal, and he did all of his damage in 27 minutes. The Warriors are currently rolling at the moment and it will be hard for anyone to stop them. They are breaking records left and right and the season just started. The team chemistry on this Warriors is only going to get better as the season progresses. The Warriors are on a five-game winning streak and will look to make it six in a row against the Pelicans.

Against The Spread Selection: Golden State Warriors
My reason for the pick :
The only team that is stopping the Warriors are the Warriors that is how good they have been after the loss to the Nuggets. Returning home after a perfect road trip I expect the Warriors to put on a show for their fans and plus the Pelicans are playing without their star Anthony Davis so it will be another easy win for the Warriors as they will win their 6th game in a row.
