The New Orleans Pelicans are allowing 23.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.5 rebounds per game.
The Golden State Warriors have shown flashes through 3 games, but the offense has another gear it can reach. The Warriors are also on the end of a back to back here, and we can't forget they're an older team. The New Orleans Pelicans are a club I was extremely high on before the season, and they've done nothing through 2 games to shake that confidence. I'll say it again, if Zion and others can stay healthy, the Pelicans have dark horse final appearance in their cards. I'll be backing the Pels a lot this season. Whatever the line is when it's released, give me New Orleans.
