Warriors embarrassed at Thunder

Golden State suffered a 120-92 loss Sunday afternoon at Oklahoma City to drop to 0-2 on the season. The Warriors trailed 70-37 at halftime in the lopsided loss. Steph Curry paced Golden State offensively as he scored 23 points on 7-of-18 shooting including 2-of-9 from 3-point range plus 7-of-7 at the free throw line. He also had eight rebounds and five assists. Draymond Green accounted for 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals. Marquese Chriss notched 10 points to go with four boards, four steals and three dimes. Eric Paschall added 10 points and three caroms off the bench. 

Pelicans fall short at Rockets

New Orleans lost by a score of 126-123 Saturday night at Houston to fall to 0-2 on the season. The Pelicans were outscored 29-23 in the fourth quarter of the defeat. Brandon Ingram paced New Orleans offense with 35 points on 14-of-22 shooting including 4-of-7 from 3-point distance and 3-of-5 at the free throw line. He also racked up 15 rebounds and five assists. Jason Hart contributed 23 points, three rebounds and two steals. Lonzo Ball had 18 points, 10 assists, three steals and two boards. J.J. Redick tallied 14 points and two rebounds.

NBA Betting Trends

Golden State

The Warriors are 3-1-2 ATS in their last six road games. Golden State is 0-3-2 ATS in its last five Monday games.

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games. New Orleans is 8-0 ATS in its last eight Monday games.

Prediction:

Golden State looks all out of sync and has not incorporated its new faces well thus far including D'Angelo Russell, who saw himself ejected from Sunday's game. The Pelicans on the other hand have played the Raptors on the road into overtime and only faltered in the fourth quarter at Houston despite being without Jrue Holiday. With or without Holiday, I like what we're seeing out of New Orleans and I don't really feel like making a trust play on the Warriors one day after being thoroughly dominated.
