Golden State Warriors: 3 takeaways from 125-115 win in New Orleans

Golden State Warriors: 3 takeaways from 125-115 win in New Orleans”

Charlotte is coming off a win over the Orlando Magic, which snapped their four game losing streak. The Hornets' away record, in contrast, is an abysmal 1-10.

Durant, who scored 19 points, blamed himself for getting too emotional. Kemba Walker led the team with 29 points and seven assists, Frank Kaminsky added 14 points off the bench while Dwight Howard and Jeremy Lamb chipped in with 12 points each.

"Having Jrue playing the way he is, aggressive, that's the Jrue we need on a nightly basis", Cousins said.

"I've said it many times, once Rondo is on the floor he makes the game easier for a lot of guys". The story in the meantime will be the health of Curry's right ankle. Apart from Golden State, New Orleans is the only team with as many as three combined ejections, with Anthony Davis accounting for the other one, while Washington is the only other team with more than one - Markieff Morris and Bradley Beal have one each. Scouting reports often tell opposing point guards to get handsy with Stephen Curry and bully him around in an attempt to wear him down over the course of the game.

In Charlotte's nine wins, Walker is averaging 25 points and shooting almost 48 percent from the floor. Even after both were assessed their second technical fouls of the game and ejected, they continued to engage in verbal hostilities and had to be pulled apart.

What became a bit of a concern for the Warriors last season has become a glaring issue seven weeks into this one. - The Hornets have been solid enough this season, without being outstanding. Warriors C Zaza Pachulia did not play because of a sore left shoulder. Though he is not the worst, he doesn't provide a whole lot offensively and is a subpar defender. Dwight Howard has had a pretty nice season for the Hornets, as he is scoring 15.1 points per game, and also ripping down 12.4 rebounds per game. Thompson is one of the best shooting guards in the league and has really started to find his rhythm in recent games. He shot 9-of-19 from the field, 5-of-11 from behind the arc and 8-of-9 from the free throw line.

That's a league-wide problem, but the Warriors are making themselves easy targets for the referees. The Warriors are the top scoring team in the league with almost 119 points per game.

New Orleans Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham (33) goes to the basket against Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (23) in the first half of an NBA basketball game in New Orleans, Monday, Dec. 4, 2017. He averages 18.6 points, 3.1 assists, a steal and a block against them in his career.

After his ejection on Monday night's win against the Pelicans, Durant said, "I can't get involved with that kind of stuff". Green stepped between the two giants, but the referee ejected both players. Walker and Batum will lead their team from the backcourt, as they do so ably every game.
