Pelicans vs. Warriors Current Form-Last Game

The Warriors head into Friday’s matchup boasting wins in six of their last seven games – with Golden State’s only loss during that timeframe coming on the second half of a back-to-back set against their upcoming opponent in this contest, the Pelicans.

Golden State’s most recent affair resulted in a victory over the Suns – as Stephen Curry had a tough night at the offensive end of the floor (21 points, 7-of-22 FGA), but Andrew Wiggins provided more than enough support to propel their team to a six-point win in a contest they were listed as a four-point underdog in.

On the flip side, New Orleans enters Friday following losses in three of the last four games – with the Pelicans only victory across that span coming in a matchup against Charlotte, which was a contest that Lonzo Ball and company trailed by seven points at the start of the fourth quarter.
