Pelicans vs. Warriors: How to watch live stream, TV channel, NBA start time

Who's Playing

New Orleans (home) vs. Golden State (away)

Current Records: New Orleans 3-9; Golden State 2-11

What to Know

The New Orleans Pelicans are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 121.67 points per game. They will look to defend their home court on Sunday against the Golden State Warriors at 7 p.m. ET. New Orleans has some work to do to even out the 2-18 series between these two since October of 2015, but a win here would be a good start.

In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 39 turnovers, the Miami Heat took down the Pelicans 109-94 on Saturday. New Orleans got a solid performance out of SG Nickeil Alexander-Walker, who shot 6-for-9 from downtown and finished with 27 points; unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the victory. Alexander-Walker didn't help his team much against the Los Angeles Clippers last week, so this was a nice turnaround for him.

Meanwhile, Golden State was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap last Friday as they fell 105-100 to the Boston Celtics. SG D'Angelo Russell wasn't much of a difference maker for Golden State; he played for 25 minutes with and nine turnovers.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: New Orleans is stumbling into the contest with the most points allowed per game in the league, having given up 121.7 on average. The Warriors have experienced some defensive struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 48.60% from the floor on average, which is the second highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
