What you need to know about the Pelicans

The Pelicans lost to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, 123-110, despite the efforts of Devonte’ Graham who shot 6-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with 28 points and six assists. Jonas Valanciunas dropped 25 points with 16 rebounds as he ranks fourth in the NBA with 26 double-doubles. New Orleans allowed Phoenix to score 42 points in the first quarter. 

Tomas Satoransky (health and safety protocols) is out while Zion Williamson remains out with a foot injury. New Orleans has allowed its opponents to shoot 47.1 percent from the floor, which is the third-highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. The Pelicans also struggle on the offensive end as they rank 25th in both points per game and offensive efficiency.

What you need to know about the Warriors

The Warriors were downed by the Dallas Mavericks on the road on Wednesday, 99-82. Stephen Curry finished with just 14 points on 5-for-24 shooting and turned the ball over five times in his 36 minutes on the court. He will not play on Thursday because of a quadriceps injury while Draymond Green (hip) and Juan Toscano-Anderson (ankle) will also be out.

Golden State has been holding its opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.5, which is best in the NBA. After having the NBA’s best offense in the early part of the season, the Warriors have slipped somewhat on that end and now rank ninth in offensive efficiency. Golden State has played two games this year without both Curry and Green and it has split those contests.
