This embarrassing loss came in the absence of all of the Warriors’ big names, including Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. They got a little rest after beating the Houston Rockets the night before. This definitely points towards the weak young squad in the team. Although Jordan Paul was the highest scorer for the Warriors against the Pelicans, he scored 26 points in 27 minutes.
